its a very good team i battled it :D
Give Flygon U-Turn or Thunder/Fire Punch over STeel WIng.

Reniclus might be better with Focus Blast over Hidden power or Energy Ball. Recover and Calm Mind are helpful too.

Otherwise good Job!

Hippowdon: Give it Leftovers for more recovery.

Excadrill: Air Balloon? Give Excadrill Focus Sash, as it is frail. This will guarantee survival. For sweep!

Gastrodon: Give it Lefties for recovery. If there is item clause, go for Sitrus Berry instead of Enigma: They do the same thing, different effects. I recommend: 252 HP / 128 Def / 128 SDef. Moveset looks good.

Flygon: Give it Choice Band with: U-Turn instead of Steel Wing.

Reuniclus: Try: 252 HP / 128 Def / 128 SAtk. Use Calm Mind over Shadow Ball. Use Psyshock over Psychic. Also, Focus Blast can deal with Darks, so maybe switch out Energy Ball for that.

Registeel: This thing' s bulky. Mad bulky. Use: 128 HP / 128 Def / 252 Def with Careful Nature. Use Curse and Hammer Arm instead of Rest and Seismic Toss.

Yes, there is Item clause. Ive never really liked Choice Items And U-turn. And I see Registeel as more a staller than an attacker of any sort. But these are helpful
