Infernape
Infernape @ Life Orb
Trait: Iron Fist
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 SAtk
Hasty Nature
- Close Combat
- ThunderPunch
- Mach Punch
- Hidden Power [Ice]

Classic HP Ice Infernape. Life Orb adds some juice to the Special and Physical Moves.

Gengar
Gengar @ Leftovers
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 4 HP
Timid Nature
- Focus Blast
- Giga Drain
- Shadow Ball
- Thunderbolt

This set truly is spooky. Giga Drain does amazing damage even against Vaporeon, and no Pokemon resists all of these moves. That's right, no Pokemon. 255 are hit normally, and 420 are hit super effectively. Still feel confident?

Mamoswine
Mamoswine @ Choice Band
Trait: Thick Fat
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 HP / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature
- Earthquake
- Ice Shard
- Icicle Crash
- Stone Edge

Speedy Hard-Hitter. Mamoswine's natural Bulk along with Thick Fat allows it to get away with only 4 HP EVs and still survive a hit or two.
Ice Shard allows Priority in case a faster Pokemon comes along.

Scizor
Scizor @ Occa Berry
Trait: Technician
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 HP / 4 SDef
Adamant Nature
- Bullet Punch
- U-turn
- Pursuit
- Superpower

An excellent trapper. Pokemon won't know if he'll U-Turn or Pursuit, and with Technician powering up both, who needs a Band?

Hydreigon
Hydreigon @ Choice Specs
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 4 SDef
Timid Nature
- Dark Pulse
- Dragon Pulse
- Fire Blast
- Focus Blast

Classic Specs Hydreigon.

Keldeo
Keldeo-Resolute @ Life Orb
Trait: Justified
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 4 Atk
Hasty Nature
- Aqua Jet
- Calm Mind
- Secret Sword
- Hidden Power [Ice]

Mixed Keldeo that can hit Super Effectively on 406 Pokemon. Between this, Life Orb and Calm Mind, few Pokemon can resist its wrath.

Note from Poke'slash: Sorry for the short descriptions, I've been writing all day.

Why is it that every single one of your Pokemon has a fighting type move :p
lol idk xD
There we go.
BTW, this is Hyper Offense. Right?
if you ask me you need some defenses most of your team is offensive but its a good team anyway
Hello, i have changed your answer to a comment. Why? Well, for one thing, it's too short. :) That should be a comment, whereas answers should be 4 to 6 paragraphs long, at least.
Also, there is a type of team called Hyper Offense. In most cases, yes, this would need defenses. But this is the style of the team.
Have a good day.
~Poke'slash
I do believe I shall give this a rate.
Actually, this is just strict offense. A Hyper Offensive Team is a team with a lead who either puts up hazards or screens (hazards are better, because screens ware off quicker and the lead should be more of a suicidal lead) and every thing else is a sweeper to cover every Pokemon in the game. It also kind of stays away from choiced Pokemon because it always looking to switch.
Bulky waters may give you trouble

Best answer

So after looking and noticing a couple things I commented, but then I noticed more stuff that I think the team would benefit from. So here we go.

Your Current Team
This is your current team before any changes.
Weaknesses:

  • Ground
  • Fighting
  • Flying
  • Psychic

Otherwise not too bad. Let's take a look at the pokes now.


Infernape

I love Infernape, I truly do. It is a beast to be reckoned with. However with my ideas for the team I think it would be neat to fake a choiced set. So here is a choiced EBelt set.

Infernape @ Expert Belt
Trait: Iron Fist
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd / 4 SAtk
Hasty Nature
- Overheat
- Close Combat
- Mach Punch/U-Turn
- Hidden Power [Ice]

So a couple things here. Overheat is extremely powerful already and means you can invest more EVs in attack. Now I think the best thing to do is to fake a Scarf set. To do that it is preferred to keep U-Turn > Mach Punch. This also allows for more coverage. The key thing to remember is when you hold the advantage of surprise in making them think you are choiced is to only use one move. So this means lead with U-Turn, or if you lead with OP Overheat, then switch out, don't use U-Turn. This guarentees that they will think you are choiced. CC and HP Ice are for coverage and will hit quite hard. HP Ice is for smashing Gliscurr's face apart mostly. And lando... :3


Gengar

Gengar is a great pokemon. I used it in my first ever team. However I needed to balance the water weakness whilst still keeping a fighting counter. Jellicent was my instant thought. But what set to use? You have a hyper offensive team and I'd like to keep it that way so, we will be abusing Jellicent in a very interesting way.

Jellicent @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Water Absorb
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 4 HP
Timid Nature
- Water Spout
- Shadow Ball
- Ice Beam
- Giga Drain/Trick

So two nice tricks here. ScarfJelli is A) unexpected, and B) when you play your cards right you can get her healed back up to reabuse Water Spout. With its great bulk the hits it takes won't be doing a huge amount of damage so you can easily switch out and then switch into a water move for healing. Giga Drain if you want to hit other water types and heal so you can use Water Spout some more, or you can utilize trick thus allowing you to destroy those sad little walls like Blissey.


Mamoswine

I love Mamoswine, especially BandSwine. But I had some ideas and after Scarfing Jelli I decided to go for a SRocks setter + 3 attack Mamo.

Mamoswine @ Leftovers
Trait: Thick Fat
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 HP / 4 SDef
Adamant Nature
- Earthquake
- Stealth Rock
- Icicle Crash
- Stone Edge/Superpower

Stealth Rock when predicting a switch and then abuse his outstanding attack stat. No Priority on this guy as with Bulk he lives an attack to reply with his own. Thick Fat is a god send for this fella allowing some heavy resistances simply through the ability. My decision was to eliminate his speed as you have several other pokes who can do speed sweeping for you.


Scizor

With only one weakness and several resistances this guy does quite well on the team. I can suggest two sets, both should work fine. I would prefer the first one, but whatever works for you.

Scizor @ Choice Band
Trait: Technician
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 HP / 4 SDef
Adamant Nature
- Pursuit
- Superpower
- Bullet Punch
- Bug Bite

BandNician is truly horrendous to deal with. With is already heavy attack, boosted by Technician and STAB, and then boosted even further by Band, Bug Bite and Bullet Punch will be dealing massive damage to those that dare attack you. EVs are same principle as Mamo, you have speed sweepers so Bulk is preferred. Unlike Mamo I gave you priority to abuse ;)

Now of you don't like Choice Items then you can run Swords Dance Scizor. This provides strong attack and allowance for mistakes.

Scizor @ Leftovers
Trait: Technician
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 HP / 4 SDef
Adamant Nature
- Pursuit
- Swords Dance
- Bullet Punch
- Bug Bite

Essentially the same with different item and Swords Dance > Superpower.


Hydreigon

Going to be keeping Hydreigon to deal with psychic and ghost weaknesses but it does mean Keldeo is getting a replacement.

I like the idea, SpecsDreigon. Try Surf > Focus Blast so you don't miss so much but still hit everything.
Also Draco Meteor > Dragon Pulse as with Specs your going to be switching anyway so the stat drop won't affect you.


Keldeo

This Unicorn is very good, but I need to replace it with someone who can handle fighting types. At first I thought psychic type and my mind eventually wandered to the Lati twins. I was going to suggest Ltios first, but Latias seemed to do the job better.
Here is a CM Sweeper set which I have used and thoroughly enjoyed.

Latias @ Leftovers
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 HP / 4 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature
- Calm Mind
- Dragon Pulse
- Substitute
- Hidden Power [Fighting]

SubCM mind set. YOU NOOB yeah yeah after the first 100 RQs you'll want to use another poke because this Lati has just meant that you have nothing left to do. I use HP Fighting to hit very nearly every steel type and those who are purely defensive, aka Skarm. Otherwise simply aboose Dragon Pulse.

ok thanks mr.K. I will surely be using this team. I think I will use mine once in a blue while though. Thanks a lot. It really helped
Jojo gave you BA, so I had no choice but to up vote to show my awe of the rates.
"I had no choice"
Yeah you had a choice but thanks anyway Slash.
I suggest a CM Latia's and Hydreigon as a Sub + 3 attacks variant. If you really want to stick to MK, I think SubCM Jirachi over Latia's would be the better suggestion. Yeah yeah you get three Ground Weaknesses, but they are covered by the other three well. And if you don't even want to take that suggestion, then go for 252 HP / 252 Spd / 4 SpA. This set gives you many chances to Sub, and takes Latias' good speed to great, so that with one CM it can actually start a sweep. Also, WHERE DAT ICE SHARD ON MAMO >.< Try this set: Stealth Rock, Ice Shard, Endeavor, Earthquake, Stoe Edge. Great set, and I use it all the time. You badly need SR for your Pokemon ti sweep, Equake and Stone Edge give the EdgeQuake, and Ice Shard, bro the hell is your problem? To OHKO any thing that's 4x weak to Ice (aka Dragons which are faster than you and carry Fire Blast and all that) is great. It's also a STAB. Oh, and if you take the Jirachi suggestion, give a Band to Scizor. I just wanted to give my input, I think the team is a bit imbalanced, and gets swept by many common threats once Mamo is down. This is what the opponent will aim for. So if you see a Dragon, make sure to keep your Mamo safe.
Hope I helped :)
There is nobody to cover the flying weakness?
You surely did Flare :3
