I'll bold the changes.

Ferrothorn @ Leftovers/Rocky Helmet
Trait: Iron Barbs
252 Def / 252 HP / 4 Atk

Impish Nature
Leech Seed
Thunder Wave
Power Whip

That is the most basic Ferro set. It's a staller.

One Psychic Type is enough, and you have a Ghost weakness, so let's replace Gallade with someone who can shine here without a Baton Passer.

Gliscor @ Toxic Orb
Trait: Poison Heal
252 Def / 48 Atk / 204 HP
Trick/Ice Fang
Earthquake
Protect
Substitute

Alakazam

Use Hidden Power Fire instead of Ghost, and replace either Psychic or Psyshock with Shadow Ball.
Change the Ability to Magic Guard if you can.

Magnezone

I'll finish my rating later.

For singles, I'd probably give Alakazam a Focus Sash or Expert Belt and Shadow Ball instead of Hidden Power if you want a Ghost move. Also, I'd use Recover over Psyshock. If you use Alakazam you need coverage on Bugs, so I'd use Arcanine.

I don't think Arcanine needs the Quick Claw. Maybe Leftovers. I'd also probably give him Flash Fire instead of Intimidate to cover Ferrothorn's 4x Fire weakness, just for that extra boost in Attack, but that's just me, idk.

To round out the team, I'd use Ferrothorn. I'd use Power Whip over Energy Ball because Ferrothorn is more of a physical attacker than special. I'd also give him Rocky Helmet instead Big Root for extra damage with Barbs. Shadow Claw over HP Ghost because of the reason I stated before. Soo uh yeah

Actually I run Psyshock and it works great to scare out Blissey. Also Alakazam is so frail recover is no good.
well having the arcanine to cover alakazam's bug weakness kind of allows to use any fourth move of your choice
Alakazam is best running Psyshock, Focus Blast, Shadow Ball, and Hidden Power Ice.
Yeah HP ice would cover the ground weakness didn't even think about it
