This is getting annoying...please include EV's and natures as well OK?

Ingame team's are not allowed as well so please hide this Q or include EV's.
Welcome to the site Aakasharun! I hope you like the site, and I know you haven't had a whole lot of time to get aquainted, but please make sure you have read and understood the rules before posting. Your team is missing EVs and Natures, and that isn't anything super major, but if you do not add EVs and Natures your team post will be hidden, and then no one will be able to help you as no ne will be able to see it. If you don't know what EVs and/or Natures are, I can give you a link from this site explaining them, or you can add roles, (i.e. wall, special sweeper, physical sweeper, etc.).

Forretress is a much better spiker than aerodactyl:

Forretress@ leftovers
ability: sturdy
role: spiker/ physical wall/ rapid spinner
EV's: 252 def/ 252 hp/ 4 sp def
nature: +def -sp att
rapid spin
toxic spikes
spikes
counter
He works well as a physical wall. Especially with counter. He is specifically a physical wall, though.

instead of metagross as a wall, I'm going to recommend one of my personal favorites:

Reuniclus@ leftovers
ability: magic guard
role: wall
EV's: 252 def/ 252 hp/ 4 sp def
nature: +def -att
calm mind
recover
psychic
focus blast
He is very good defensively. With calm mind, he can take and deliver some very powerful special attacks.

I'm only going to change a few things on your Weavile:

Weavile@ life orb
ability: pressure
role: physical sweeper
EV's: 252 speed/ 252 att/ 4 hp
nature: +speed -sp att
fake out
night slash
ice punch
brick break
He is very powerful, especially against dragons. Fake out is for some free damage. Night slash and ice punch are STAB. Brick break is for coverage.

I think that Dragonite would be better than Salamence in this case:

Dragonite@ life orb
ability: multiscale
role: setup sweeper
EV's: 252 att/ 252 speed/ 4 hp
nature: +speed -sp att
dragon dance
outrage
fire punch
extremespeed
You start with dragon dance. Lum berry and multiscale will help you not get paralyzed and you will rarely ever get one hit ko'd. Fire punch is so that you don't get walled by ferrothorn or forretress.

Milotic isn't a bad special wall, but I think that Heatran would be better for you:

Heatran@ leftovers
ability: flash fire
role: special wall
EV's: 248 hp/ 252 sp def/ 8 speed
nature: +sp def -att
roar
stealth rocks
toxic
lava plume
This is a tested and effective moveset. Roar stops set up sweepers. Toxic can cripple sweepers.

Alakazam is a good sweeper, but I think that Gengar has better synergy with your team:

Gengar@ life orb
ability: levitate
role: special sweeper
EV's: 252 speed/ 252 sp att/ 4 hp
nature: +sp att -att
shadow ball
giga drain
hidden power fire or ground
focus blast
Gengar can switch in on fighting and ground attacks aimed at weavile and heatran. Giga drain is good for healing life orb damage.
