I did these all on my own, without SS's help, with the exception of Haxorus. Hope I did ok.

Haxorus (F) @ Persim Berry
Ability: Mold Breaker
EVs: 4 HP, 252 Atk, 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
Outrage
Earthquake
Dragon Dance
Shadow Claw

I'm thinking of switching to Choice Band. I did this guy for a great physical sweeper. Outrage is a great STAB move with Persim Berry to take the ducks away. :P Earthuake is for Mold Breaker. Dragon Dance is a "duh" for an ultimate sweep. And Shadow Claw is for Cofagrigus.

Espeon (F) @ Focus Sash
Ability: Magic Bounce
EVs: 40 SpAtk, 216 HP, 252 Spe
Modest Nature
Calm Mind
Substitute
Shadow Ball
Psychic

This one's my Special Sweeper. I needed a Magic Bouncer, too. Calm Mind is to set up while behind a Substitute. Shadow Ball is good Ghost coverage. And Psychic is a good STAB.

Hippowdon (F) @ Ganlon Berry
Ability: Sand Force
EVs; 4 Atk, 252 HP, 252 Def
Impish Nature
Sandstorm
Stealth Rock
Toxic
Earthquake

I have to admit, I might replace this guy. He's almost no good on this team. It's no Sand, and this one's useless. Replacement please! :D

Toxicroak (M) @ Black Sludge
Ability: Poison Touch
EVs: 4 SpDef, 252 HP, 252 Atk
Adamant Nature
Fake Out
Poison Jab
Cross Chop
Swords Dance

Another physical dude. If KO'ed, you never know when Poison Touch might work. :D Swords Dance is for Attack. Fake Out is for obvious reasons. Poison Jab and Cross Chop are STABs that I see valuable on Toxicroak.

Gyarados (M) @ Wacan Berry
Ability: Moxie
EVs: 4 HP, 252 Atk, 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
Dragon Dance
Ice Fang
Waterfall
Earthquake

This is for the punch, man. He makes a great revenge KOer. Dragon Dance is to get that Attack and Speed up. Ice Fang is for coverage, Waterfall is a strong STAB, and Earthquake is for more coverage, and those pesky Electric-types.

Jellicent (M) @ Leftovers
Ability: Cursed Body
EVs: 4 SpAtk, 252 HP, 252 SpDef
Calm Nature
Scald
Will-O-Wisp
Recover
Confuse Ray

Here's the annoying stall/wall. Scald is for those annoying Taunters. Will-O-Wisp is is Scald isn't workin' for ya'. Recover is to make Jellicent even more unstoppable. Conuse Ray is for pure annoyance. :D

I hope I did a good job!

Nice team, though I see a few things here and there...


Haxorus
Haxorus
As a pokemon: I think you like this guy, and I gotta admit, after 1-2 dragon dances, almost nothing stops it.
Item: Well considering how deadly of a sweeper this thing is after some dragon dances, Confusion isn't your only problem. If you get burned or paralysed, your haxourus could easily become useless. Thus Lum berry is superior as it can take out all three threats at once.
EVs and nature: Yup, glad to see you know your evs properly.
Moveset: I wouldn't say shadow claw is the best move for him

-Outrage-perfectly fine
-Earthquake-this is always seen on a pokemon that can learn it is it not :P
-Dragon Dance- duh
-Low kick/brick break- Shadow claw doesn't do the same as these two moves. Ferrothorn and air balloon heatran, and skarmory, are some of the most dangerous threats for haxorus. Ferrothorn won't take much from and earthquake, heatran can take you down when you try to pop that baloon, and skarmory just plain resists everything. these moves should solve this problem.

As a result

Haxorus@Lum Berry
Ability: Mold Beaker
EVs: 252 atk 252 spe 4 HP
Adamant Nature
-Outrage
-Earthquake
-Dragon dance
-Brick break/ Low sweep

This will be you new Haxorus


Espeon
Espeon
As a pokemon:- I see you are trying to use espeon as a sweeper. I'm sorry to dissapoint but espeon's lack of bulk will leave you dissapointed when trying to set up. Therefore you should try using it as a lead.
Item: Replace with Light Clay, you will see why.
EVs and Nature: 252 HP 252 spe 4 def, you'll see why. Timid nature for speed.
Moveset: I'm gonna have to change this so excuse me. I'm gonna give you a dual screen set.
-Light screen
-Reflect
- These two moves can allow a sweeper from your team to set up thanks to the defense boost. Light Clay will make sure that these last for eight turns, plenty enough time, and the EVs should let it put its max effort in setting up.
-Psychic/Psyshock-you'll probably want something to doafter setting up.
-Baton pass- Strange even though there isn't a stat boost to pass. This allows you to get past pursuit users, namely tyranitar and scizor. Pursuit can't do crap to espeon thanks to baton pass, and you get a safe switch in
-HP fire- Are you tired of scizor messing up your day, well not anymore. But tyranitar will still be a problem so watch out.

If you really want a special sweeper, then say hello to the biggest mustache in pokemon

Alakazam@life orb
Alakazam
Ability: Magic guard
EVs: 252 spa 252 spe 4 HP
Modest Nature
-Psyshock- You do not want Blissey to be a problem for you
-Focus blast- go to hell tyranitar
-Shadow ball- Latios and Latias will be taken care of with this move
-HP ice/fire- Dragons or steels, if focus blast cant do it, your pick

This is the premier psychic sweeper of OU, use him wisely, and if you want you can replace life orb with focus sash, either work. Its ability ensures that it works.


Hippowdon
Hippowdon

As a pokemon: He's goin all right
Say hello to...

Landorus-T@ Choice Scarf
enter image description here
Ability: Intimidate
EVs: 252 atk 224 spe 32 HP
Jolly Nature
-Earthquake
-U-turn
-Stone edge
-Superpower

U-turn works amazingly with intimidate and choice scarf, allowing it to scout for dangerous moves and annoy physical attackers with intimidate. The choice scarf allows it to act somewhat as a revenge killer as well, which you need. Earthquake is STAB but be careful with the immunities. Stone edge provides great coverage especially with earthquake. Superpower is to hit stuff hard if you don't feel like using earthquake. This guy works great so use him.


Toxicroak
Toxicroak

As a pokemon: He does exceptionally well in rain, but without, gets out classed by many...

I see that you are going for a bulky toxicroak. Guess who

Conkeldurr@leftovers
Conkeldurr
Ability: Guts
Evs: 120 HP 252 atk 136 spd
Adamant nature
-Bulk up
-Drain punch
-Mach punch
-Pay back

God, just look at that attack. Burning won't save you but it will only bring forth your demise witha 50% boost. Drain punch allows it to take a hit, and return the favor while recovering the HP lost. Mach punch allows it to overcome speed and finish off opponents. Pay back deals with ghosts types and possibly psychic if he survive a hit. I can see this thing being a beast on this team. So use it.


Gyarados
Gyarados

As a pokemon: Yes, he is usable on this team
Item: Wacan berry isn't the best choice as you will still have a tough time setting up. since your ability is moxie, the water gem is a superior item. Why you ask? With STAB and the 50% boost from the gem, waterfall reaches from 80-180 power, easily OHKOing anything that doesn't resist it, allowing you to get that first moxie boost that will destroy everything.
EVs and Nature: You got this down
Moveset: This is a nice standard moveset and I don't see much to fix. Good Job!


Jellicent
Jellicent

As a pokemon: I'm sorry, but having two water types in the same team can somewhat be disruptive and have bad synergy. You might have to replace it. But do not worry, this new alternative can act as good as jellicent while giving you the typing that your team needs. Presenting...

Heatran@leftovers
Heatran
Ability: Flash fire
EVs: 248 HP 252 spd 8 def
Bold Nature
-Lava Plume
-Roar/Stealth rock
-Protect
-Will-O-Wisp

This is by far, my favorite heatran set. It's unique typing means it can't be stalled and it has the most resistances, second to magnezone(I think). Lava Plume is to attack and get in a burn, if you wanna burn head on, use will-o-wisp. If espeon manages to bounce some rocks, then you can troll with roar, or if you are gonna use alakazam then put in rocks for the sweepers to have an easier time, breaking sashes and providing the extra damage that can make a KO. Protect once burned, will stall hurt the opponent for one turn and then heal you in the same turn. Special defensive Heatran is definetely the poke for you and I guarantee you'll like it.


Nice team happy winning :D
