ok after a long time of breeding i have trained my favorite pokemon (i have a feeling they don't work well all together in one team :( )

i have:

Charizard
Ablility: blaze (drought when mega)
Nature: Modest
Item: charizardite y
perfect 6 IVs

252 satk/ 252 speed/ 6 hp

air slash
flamethrower
solar beam
fire spin

Tyranitar
Ability: sandstream
Nature: Admant
item: most likely going to be assault vest (but can switch up for mega tyranitar for different team setup)
perfect 6 IVs

252 hp/ 236 atk/ 20 speed

crunch
stone edge
earthquake
Ariel ace

Scizor
Ablity: Technician
Nature: Admant
item: don't know what he should hold (can go mega for different team setup)
perfect 5 IVs missing satk

252 hp/ 252 atk/ 6 def

Sword dance
U-turn
bullet punch
brick break

(i have another scizor but with only atk iv perfect and 30 on speed that i transfered in from black 2 as i was learning about breeding and move building that has super power....)

Gengar
ability: levitate
Nature: timid
Item: same as Scizor have no clue but could go mega on different team setup

perfect 5 IVs missing attk

252 spatk/ 252 speed/ 6 hp

sludge bomb
shadow ball
dazzling Gleam
thunderbolt

i do have legendaries like yveltal with 31 on speed and satk and near perfect zekrom but im trying for a team without legendaries

i have 2 more slots that i need to fill up but i don't know if my existing pkm will even work well in the same team.

any ideas on what other 2 pokemon i should add or what i should take out for another? as i think i have too many sweepers.....

i could not think of another move for charizard so when he learned fire spin i replaced growl with it haha

edit: i also heard it was a good move to trap pokemon with but that is not my ideal build as i think he is too fragile to trap

Use Earthquake on Zard so you don't get walled by Heatran.

I think you should use X-Scissor instead of U-Turn on Scizor if you're gonna be using Swords Dance

Common set on Charizard Y is Fire Blast, Solar Beam, Focus Blast (for the same reasons as Earthquake but is a Special Attack and can hit Air Balloon users), and Dragon Pulse (to OHKO most Dragon types).

Pokemon like Rotom-W and Ferrothorn are great choices for Physical Walls but might not work well with your Charizard Y's Ability. I would recommend Gliscor or Mandibuzz.

SD sets are meant to be sweeping,not scouting.If you plan on Scout Scizor,replace SD with something else.
