I've been updating my team for a while. I'll post the current lineup below with the intended switches in bold. Aside from the two I'm intending to swap, I'm fairly happy with the rest of it.

Charizard @ Charizardite X
252 ATK / 252 SPE / 4 DEF
Ability: Tough Claws
Nature: Jolly
Dragon Dance
Flare Blitz
Outrage
Earthquake

Jolteon @ Choice Scarf
252 SPA / 252 SPE / 4 SPD
Ability: Volt Absorb
Nature: Timid
Thunderbolt
Shadow Ball
Volt Switch
Hyper Beam (I'd rather have HP Ice, but had better luck breeding 5 IVs on this than I did breeding that. I'll come back to this later, I guess)

Weavile @ Life Orb
252 ATK / 252 SPE / 4 DEF (or HP or SPD I don't remember)
Ability: Pressure
Nature: Jolly
Fake Out
Ice Shard
Brick Break
Icicle Crash


Roserade @ Black Sludge
252 SPD / 252 HP / 4 SPA
Ability: Natural Cure
Nature: Calm
Toxic
Synthesis
Sludge Bomb
Leaf Storm

Gardevoir @ Leftovers
252 SPD / 252 SPA / 4 SPE (I think it's divided differently but it's a mess and I'm getting rid of it)
Ability: Synchronize
Nature: Modest
Hypnosis
Calm Mind
Moonblast
Psychic


Excadrill @ Air Balloon
252 ATK / 252 SPE / 4 HP
Ability: Mold Breaker
Nature: Jolly
Earthquake
Rapid Spin
X-Scissor
Rock Slide

The two I'm planning on switching in are:

Scrafty @ Assault Vest (for Weavile)
252 HP / 252 DEF / 4 ATK
Ability: Shed Skin
Nature: Impish
Fake Out / Dragon Tail
Payback
Ice Punch
Drain Punch

Slowbro @ Leftovers
252 HP / 252 DEF / 4 SPA
Ability: Regenerator
Nature: Bolt
Scald
Psyshock
Ice Beam / Thunder Wave
Slack Off

I'm especially concerned about Scrafty. I don't think it'll put out enough damage with the current build, even if I intended it to be a tank. Regarding EVs, I've always had issues with picturing how best to divide them outside maximum thresholds (252 for two stats, 4 for one).

I have had a lot of success with Weavile, but my overall build has almost no defenses the way it is now, which is why I'm trying to build it in... Basically, I don't know if replacing Weavile (who has saved my skin with Ice Shard and Fake Out) will be a huge mistake. On the other hand, I also realize I need more balance than I have now.

Thanks for the insight.

I meant choice specs on Jolteon, not Scarf.
