Ferrothorn

Don't waste this guys attack stat, instead of Toxic, go for Power Whip!


Scizor

This boy doesn't need Vacuum Wave, give him Roost so he can heal himself, and give him Bug Bite instead of X-Scissor, Technician makes Bug Bite more powerful, and Bug bite can steal berries :]
Consider defensive Ev's since he's using Bullet Punch and doesn't have that great of speed.


Lucario

Water Pulse should be taken out for Dark Pulse, and Flash cannon for Nasty plot.


Metagross

Go Adamant instead of Brave, with 70 Base speed, he can still outspeed a hand full of things.
Switch out Ariel Ace for Ice Punch.


Empoleon

You have Defiant ( Raises Attack if any stat is lowered ) and Cell Battery ( Raises Attack if hit by an Electric move ) And you're using a Special Attacker.

Change the ability to Torrent, and forget using Cell Battery, Try Life orb.
Change nature to Modest or Timid.


Registeel

I like this guy, but he needs to go.

Your team desperately needs some kind of fire protection.

Get a Heatran

Heatran (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Flash Fire
EVs: 252 Def / 4 SAtk / 252 SDef
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Fire Blast
- Earth Power
- Dragon Pulse
- Hidden Power [Grass]

Fire Blast works better than Flamethrower due to PO making those kind of moves hit a bunch.
Earthpower gets great coverage, Dragon Pulse takes out Dragons, HP Grass takes care of most all of his weaknesses! He has the ability Flash Fire meaning Fire moves won't even touch him, with good Prediction he can be the All-Star of your team!

Ferrothorn

Looks pretty good.
i would however change the EV spread to: 252 Hp, 128 Sp.Def, 128 Atk. can't forget Power Whip, it would be more useful than toxic.

Scizor

Vaccum wave!? it's special attacking, replace it with Superpower. Replace x-scissor with bug bite.
Since you will mostly be using Bullet Punch anyway, I would suggest an EV spread like this: 252 HP, 252 Atk, 4 Sp.Def.

Lucario

I suggest Life Orb as item instead of wise Glasses. Go with Jolly nature, replace water pulse with nasty plot.
Dark Pulse is also an option.

Metagross

Aerial Ace only has 60 base power, replace it with Ice punch and use adamant nature.
I would replace zen headbutt with agility.
with EVs: 144 HP, 252 Atk, 112 Speed.

Empoleon

Cell battery hightens the Atk stat not sp.atk, and im not sure how well he'll be taking electric type attacks anyway. go with absorb bulb, leftovers or life orb.
The set looks good, i would however suggest EVs like this: 248 HP, 252 Sp.Atk, 4 Def, 4 Sp.Def. your EVs works too though.

Registeel

Not sure about the curse set, however if using it I would suggest having Careful nature and EVs: 252 Sp.Def, 128 HP, 128 Atk.
Also Consider Earthquake.
