Hard to rate this team. Slaking is best as a Choice Bander.
Looking at the three TM moves Salamence has, it seems Slaking's options are limited.
Its possible to breed some of those moves on to Slakoth:
Slaking @ Choice Band
- Shadow Ball
- Brick Break
- Fire Blast/Hyper Beam
To get Shadow Ball and Brick Break on to Slakoth, use the following breeding chain:
Heracross (Brick Break - Lv. 23) -> Volbeat -> Sableye (Shadow Ball - Lv. 41) -> Spinda -> Slakoth
Registeel is the worst of the three Regis. I suggest using Regice:
Regice @ Leftovers
Trait: Clear Body
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Ice Beam
Its a nice special wall/sweeper.

Unfortunately I don't have a choice band (It's a random battle tower reward).
The reason I chose Registeel was it gives me soo many resistances (Normal, Grass, Ice, Poison, Flying, Psychic, Bug, Rock, Ghost, Dragon, Dark, Steel), and its weaknesses (Ground, Fighting, Fire) are all 1/2 damage or 0 damage to Salamence. The two just complement each other so well.

Slaking moveset is fine. When you obtain a Choice Band, you may make it hold it. For EVs 252Att/252Spd/6HP would be better.
I understand Registeel's role, (Metagross could have done it better) however it seems somewhat messed up. With Ancient Power alone as a damaging move and Jolly Nature + Curse. I feel the 252 EVs in SDef, would be better in Def, since physical sweepers are a greater threat since they have Choice Band/Swords Dance. If its a special sweeper, Registeel can quickly increase SDef with Amnesia. Not sure on how to improve Registeel's moveset.

Thanks for the suggestions Scepgatr. I've updated the original post.
I put metal claw on registeel for now so at least he has STAB now.
Ditched Slaking - replaced with Regice to cover my huge Dragon weakness.
edit: I do have a Metagross but he sucks. Quirky nature and random EVs because I leveled him years ago when I was a newb. No idea what IVs are either.

Why did you put an smily of a Slaking when it was actually a Regice?

You viewed the post when I was in the middle of editing it. It's fixed now :)
