I've made a lot of revisions to my team, so here it is.

Cloyster (M)@ Pink Bow - Ice Beam, HP Fire (70), Spikes, Explosion

Spikes starter. HP Fire is a suprise for starter Scizor, Forretress and other Cloyster. Pink Bow to add some extra oomph to Cloyster's Explosion.

Electabuzz (F)@ Leftovers - Thunderbolt, Ice Punch, Psychic, Thunderwave

Special sweeper and support Pokemon. This thing needs Thunder Wave more than it needs Cross Chop, and it covers a lot of types. Psychic is mostly for Machamp and Heracross and Ice Punch is for Zapdos, Dragonite and incoming ground types.

Magmar (M)@ Leftovers - Fire Blast, Sunny Day, Cross Chop, Confuse Ray

Cross Chop is for Blissey, and since I don't have any water moves on my team, Sunny Day seemed like a good fit. Fire Blast over Flamethrower because Magmar's Special Attack is nothing special and Confuse Ray for extra annoyance.

Noctowl (M)@ Nothing - Thief, Wing Attack, Reflect, Whirlwind

My Leftovers thief. Wing Attack is there for Fighters who dare to stay in against Noctowl. Reflect is for passing and Whirlwind is for pseudohazing and Spikes damage.

Hypno (F)@ Mint Berry - Seismic Toss, Attract, Thunder Wave, Rest

Major annoyer. Psychic is pretty much a waste on it since it has crappy Special Attack, but this thing can be a tank, especially with a Reflect passed to it.

Golem (M)@ Leftovers - Rock Slide, Earthquake, Counter, Explosion

Pretty standard. Another Exploder and a Physical Sweeper. Leftovers is there so it can use Counter more than once. I've had a lot of success with this so far.

So, rate away and enjoy.

Cloyster
Could work

Electabuzz
Ok, CC sucks on it anyway, Barrier or Attract over Thunderwave if needed

Magmar
Looks ok, but its moves have 10 pp or less, might go with Flamethrower

Noctowl
Works

Hypno
Good annoyer

Golem
Standard

I would watch out for your weaknesses. Half your team is weak to rock and ground, and only one pokemon that isn't weak to either.

I was thinking of replacing my Noctowl with a ThiefSkarm. Noctowl is like my signature Pokemon now, but it's jst too frail. Is Skarmory a good idea or is there a better suggestion out there?

ANY Flying type is better than Noctowl, with the acception of Murkrow. Maybe a Xatu could be good here for a nice touch to a Flying type mixed with Psychic, in which case you should lose Hypno because without any Psychic backup it's not doing much good here. People have way too many Skarmory counters by now, so I say go for Xatu.

Xatu
Psychic, Drill Peck, Confuse Ray, Haze @Leftovers
