Shadow Ball over Psychic on Lucario, for better coverage.

Return over Iron Tail on Breloom. Iron Tail has less power, less accuracy, and doesn't actually covers anything. Return doesn't really covers anything either, but at least it has higher power (102 on max happiness) and higher accuracy.

Rock Slide/Ice Punch over Poison Jab on Medicham, for better coverage.

A Dragon dance Scrafty would be better since you boost your attack.

-Dragon Dance
- Crunch
- Hi Jump Kick / Drain Punch
- Ice punch

Medicham is probably better as all physical. Swords dance over Aeriel ace on infernape and Flare blitz / fire punch over flamethrower. Close combat also works over brick break. Nasty plot on Lucario because you need a special attacker at least. Dark pulse / shadowball over psychic and NP over earthquake. A calm mind virizion can also go over breloom for another special sweeper.

Personally, I don't like non-damaging attacks, but I was thinking of replacing my Poison Jab with Ice punch. I've thought about Flame Charge, but doesn't it cause self-damage? I like to stay as far away from those as I can (I only barely tolerate Head Smash).

I like keeping Psychic on Lucario to cover her weakness to fighting, but I might consider the dark move. That way, Reglius, Effie (she DID have Shadow Ball previously, I just got tired of it, since I never use it anymore), and Hephaestus for Psy/Ghost cover. I just wish I had better cover for Flying. :( GF needs to get on a Fighting/Electric or Fighting/Ice poke, but I digress.

Not a big fan of Return, but I Looooove Iron Tail. It always lands a crit for me (don't know why, but it does). It's been doing that since I first taught it to her in Emerald.

Infernape can't learn Fire Punch outside of Egg move, and I form attachments, so I don't want to replace him with a clone.

Also, does anyone have any idea what item I should give Hephaestus? He's at level 94 right now, and I won't be needing Lucky Egg on him, soon. I don't want to opt for a copy item (like, giving him one that is already held by someone else...I'm OCD and can barely stand the Scrafty and Lucario having a name that starts with the same letter).

(Sorry if this sounds weird, my meds have kicked in, and I'm a tad high right now).

Flame Charge doesn't cause recoil, that would be Flare Blitz, which floatzel98 did suggest.

Dark Pulse instead of Shadow Ball for Lucario is fine, considering Dark & Ghost has similar coverage anyway.

Quiet Hitmonchan is really bad, but I guess you won't want to replace it.
I know you dont want to replace Hitmonchan, but you could at least breed for a better nature. Quiet hurts Hitmonchan more than it helps(which it doesn't). I would actually suggest doing this for most of your team except for Infernape because they all have useless natures (except for Infernape. Breed for Adamant or Jolly natures, however Lucario prefers Modest or Timid). I would also suggest getting Poison Heal on Breloom as Effect Spore is not as useful as Poison Heal. Hope I helped! :)
