You can only have 510 EVs xD
What the heck kinda EVs are these?!
They were why the Q was originally hidden. I unhid the question on the terms that he fixed up the EVs. I believe he's working on them now.
Freeze shock, everyone doesn't hate your team, it has potential, just people on this site sometimes have an odd way of giving advice..
Just needs a lot of quirking but you should be fine after that.

OK, this is gonna be a little harder since you gave no specific tier, so im gonna do this short, straight and to the poin. Your EV spreads are incomplete and what is there is usually in serouis need of changing, as they usually do not help that pokemon at all. Also, you have 3 pokemon weak to fighting types on your team, and 2 of those 3 have 4X fighting weaknesses instaed of regular fighting weaknesses.



Aggron- I'm not sure what you are going for here, but there are a few ways to use aggron, and this is not one of them. What EV's you do have on him are in the right stat, but the razor claw is banned in competitive play. You can either run this set:

Physical mono-attcker
EVs: 252 atk, 252 def, 4 spdef
Nature: adamant
Ability: Rock head
Item: Choice Band/Leftovers
Moves:
Head Smash (Great power, STAB, no recoil from rock head)
Double-edge (Decent power, no recoil from rock head)
Earthquake (Not even gonna say why)
Iron tail (Good power, STAB)

That set is the set that I prefer, but you could run this one:

Fatso Aggron
EVs: 252atk, 252 def, 4 spdef
Nature: Adamant
Ability: Heavy Metal
Item: Focus Sash
Moves:
Heavy Slam (with his wieght after heavy metal, look out)
Earthquake (Because)
Stone edge (STAB)
Dragon Tail (Switches away resisting foes)

Or you could run this set:

Metal Burst Aggron
EVs: 252 def, 252 atk, 4 HP
Nature: Impish
Ability: Sturdy
Item: Leftovers
Moves:
Metal burst (with sturdy plus his stellar defense, your gonna be hitting hard with this)
Earthquake (yup)
Stone edge (STAB)
Iron Head (STAB)



Your hydreigon is OK, but it could use some help, again, not sure what your doing with the EVs but its wrong. I see you were going for spatk boosts with charge beam, but it's not as efficient as specs hydreigon, which usually look something like this set from smogon:

EV's: 252spatk, 252 spd, 4 HP
Nature: timid
Ability: Levitate
Item: Choice specs
Moves:
Flamethrower (Covers bug and ice types)
Dragon pulse (STAB)
Focus Blast (Coverage)
Draco meteor (Hits like a cannon, great for revenge killing)

This hydreigon hits really hard and is a great sweeper.



This is where your EVs are really starting to make me wonder, you have more attacks than special attacks, and yet you have special attack EVs, and no attack EVs. Brightpowder is banned in competitive play, and a special attack on weavile is a bad idea. Calm mind on a weavile? Really?. Try something like this smogon set instead:

EVs: 252atk, 252spd, 4 HP
Nature: Jolly
Ability: Pressure
Item: Life orb
Moves:
Swords dance (boosts his attack for sweeping)
Ice punch/ice shard (STAB, power VS priority)
Night slash (STAB)
Low kick (hits steel and rock types)



Gengar - Your'e doing it wrong. What EVs you have on him are in spdef, two words: mental hospital. Gengar is a sweeper, and defensive anything (bar black sludge or sash) is a bad idea on gengar. I use this set and it works very well:

EVs: 252 spatk, 252 spd
Nature: Timid
Ability: Levitate
Item: Focus Sash
Moves:
Focus Blast (Coverage)
Shadow Ball (STAB)
Giga Drain/Taunt (Giga Drain is mostly just because, while taunt makes him more of a suicide assassin, as well as stopping foes from setting up)
Destiny Bond (Once your sash stops the KO, use this to take the opponent with you, works especially well after the enemy is taunted)
