We need moves and natures and so on. But just looking at this, I'd imagine that you want a wall, like Steelix.

Go for Steelix, because you don't have any kind of tank on your team, and Scizor isn't that good anyway.

Steelix @ Leftovers
Sturdy/Rock Head
- Earthquake
- Rock Slide/Double-Edge
- Rest/Explosion/Toxic/Double-Edge
- Roar

Since this is probably ingame, you can lose Roar and put one of the other options in the last slot. I would say Double Edge with Rock Head, but it's your choice.

Steelix = Yes w/, Earthquake/Rock Slide/Explosion/Roar IMO
What he says you dont have any kind of tank
Steelix with Scizor you cant really compromise them....
It relies on the other team members

GOod luck,

The predator awaits.
Iron Tail could be an option over RS.

Toxic and Rest / Explosion in the last two moveslots.

Dragonite and Salamence do different things; that's up to you.

Salamence@Leftovers
-Dragon Dance
-Earthquake
-Rock Slide/Aerial Ace/Fire Blast
-Rock Slide/Aerial Ace/Fire Blast

Dragonite@Leftovers
-Substitute
-Focus Punch
-Ice Beam/Dragon Claw
-Thunderbolt/Flamethrower

BoltBeam or FlameClaw.

yea i like salamence hes extremly strong and is a good sweeper and has a good effect intmiedate but thats what annoys me about him at the start of every battle he does that annoying sequence, and it bugs but on the other hand dragonite is a god special sweeper

Your team looks like it wants a physical sweeper more than a special one, as Charizard has only a mediocre attack stat and gengar's better suited to special sweeping.

so do u think i should replace charizard? for salamence or slaking? and put more power. or should i go the opposite and put blissey or torkoal? or a more defensive pokemon maybe another tank?

I think you'd be better off using Salamence over Dragonite, or else you have two dragon/flying Pokemon. Slaking would be possible over Charizard if you want, but I don't think it's necessary.

Your Worst Nightmare
I say Steelix... it could save your a*s if an electric pokemon comes becuase a good Electric type could knock out half your team (Dragonite, charizard, Cradawnt)

Steelix @leftovers (rock head prefeered)
- Eartquake (STAB)
- Iron Tail (STAB)
- Double Edge/Rock Slide if no double edge
- Toxic/Protect/Rock slide (Go with Toxic, but if you really need it use Rock slide... but be advised Steelix is slow and might not be able to take a strong defense trained Fire type)
