riley1 if you were to try and hit the Rmt Guidelines more accurately, it would be easier for people to rate your team and help you out

Alright riley1, this is my first RMT response, we'll see how it goes...

Porygon2
Are you using Porygon2 as a special attacker? If so, you could try swapping Hyper Beam with Trick Room. But, if you're looking for a more powerful sweeper, something like Volcarona or Hydregion would work a lot better (I'm assuming this is an OU team...)

Togekiss
I've actually had great success with Togekiss in the OU tier. However, most of it has come from a ParaFlinch set...
It looks like you're using Togekiss as a Special attacker as well. I'm not sure what ExtremeSpeed is for, Togekiss's attack stat is so low that it probably wouldn't make a dent in most Pokemon without significant EV investment. You could try replacing it with Roost to give it some more staying power.

Magnezone
Well, it looks like you're using Magnezone as a special sweeper as well (I'm sensing a theme here ) Again, if you insist on keeping Magnezone, try giving him a Choice Scarf and switching out HP Psychic with HP Fire.

Ambipom
I wouldn't dare criticize one of Magnetboy's sets...

Breloom
This looks fairly good. I would recommend swapping Focus Punch out with Mach Punch though. You could use a Life Orb and Technician if you wanted to pack a bigger punch. If you did that, you could swap out Substitute with Swords Dance too. You could Spore, then get off a Swords Dance while they switch.

Garchomp
I don't even know what to make of this one. Since Metronome basically locks you into one move anyways, you might as well go for a Choice Band. Also, whats with all the investment in HP? I've never seen Garchomp run as a Bulky Sweeper. I'm sure you could find a set you like Here

Overall
The biggest weaknesses in your team are to Fire and Fighting. Not a good combo. Something like an Infernape would sweep the entire team (With the exception of Garchomp) Try swapping out Porygon2 with a Jellicent for a little more coverage. You can find some sets for Jellicent Here. It's cool that you're trying to do something a little different, but it's usually better to leave the sweeping to a real sweeper.
