    If you really want this to be competitive, you need to know about Effort Values, or EVs. This page has all you need to know about EVs.

    Now lets look at your team:

    Weavile is best as an all-out physical attacker, not a Focus Sash lead.

    The following is Weavile's best set

    Weavile @ Life Orb / Choice Band
    Jolly Nature / Pressure
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
    -Swords Dance / Pursuit / Ice Shard
    -Night Slash
    -Ice Punch
    -Low Kick / Brick Break

    Don't use Swords Dance if you choose to use Choice Band.

    Empoleon works as a better lead than Weavile.

    Empoleon @Focus Sash / Leftovers / Chople Berry
    Modest Nature / Torrent
    EVs: 156 HP / 252 SpAtk / 100 Spe
    -Stealth Rock
    -Surf / Hydro Pump
    -Ice Beam
    -Grass Knot / Aqua Jet

    Stealth Rock is a must-have here, as it gets up Entry Hazards, which are a must in competitive battling.

    Cresselia's moveset is good, but give it the following EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpAtk

    Togekiss is a better user of Life Orb than Choice Specs.

    Togekiss @Life Orb
    Timid Nature / Serene Grace
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpAtk / 252 Spe
    -Air Slash
    -Aura Sphere
    -Shock Wave / Flamethrower
    -Roost / Nasty Plot

    Air Slash + Aura Sphere (which are both learned via Heart Scale) grants perfect neutral coverage against every type. It doesn't need Hidden Power Fire when it gets Flamethrower. Roost can heal off Life Orb's recoil or Nasty Plot can boost your SpAtk.

    Scizor is good, but you have a couple options when it comes to EVs.

    Bulky-Offensive: 248 HP / 252 Atk / 8 Spe
    Pure-Offensive: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe

    The Pure-Offensive EV spread might be more useful to you since you have a Jolly Nature.

    Your Gyarados is good, although you can go with BulkyGyara to increase its survivability. Entry Hazards, the commonly used Sandstorm, and other damage really take its toll.

    BulkyGyara: 156 HP / 72 Atk / 96 Def / 184 Spe
    -Dragon Dance
    -Earthquake / Stone Edge

    Taunt can shut down things trying to cripple Gyarados with Roar, Thunder Wave, and other status moves. This gives BulkyGyara opportunity to set up with Dragon Dance and hit back hard. Earthquake destroys Electric types and Stone Edge targets Dragonite and other Gyarados.

    If you don't want to go with BulkyGyara, go with the basic 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe EV Spread.

    Leafeon @Life Orb
    Adamant or Jolly Nature / Leaf Guard
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
    -Swords Dance
    -Leaf Blade
    -Return / Synthesis

    That's going to be Leafeon's best set. It doesn't have a very large movepool, so your attacking options are kind of limited.

    One other thing: With Togekiss, Empoleon, and Gyarados, you have a major weakness to Electric types. I highly suggest replacing Togekiss with something like Electivire or Jolteon, since their abilities nullify Electric attacks when they switch in on them.

    Hope that helps.

    BTW, I noticed you mentioned Leafeon with Chlorophyll from Dream World. Dream World is 5th Gen, but you posted in the 4th Gen Forum...
