My Drapion in platinum knows toxic spikes and my Lopunny knows protect, so should I teach Lopunny toxic to go with protect, or just have Drapion in front so I always use toxic spikes?

Are you using this against other people, the Battle Frontier, or in-game trainers?
The battle frontier and in-game trainers.

Toxic and spikes don't work. So toxic spikes drapion and to replace toxic dizzy punch. Double whammy.

The 3v3 battles in the Battle Frontier are much faster paced than the 6v6 battles you might be used to. I don't think there's any good reason to spend a move slot and 2 turns using toxic spikes when you can just attack the opponent, partly because you're not playing volleyball :P. I also don't think there's any good reason to use Drapion and Lopunny when you can use stronger Pokemon, like Tyranitar and Infernape.

In-game trainers are easy if you're using a high-level Infernape and spamming reasonably strong STABs.
