Does anyone feel like rating my current battle frontier team?

I've been doing pretty well so far. I've got all the silver symbols except one (in the battle tower, I think).

I especially need some help with items, since I have no idea what to give them.

OK, here we go:

Smeargle
Timid nature
252 hp; 252 spe; 6 def
Spore
Agility
Belly drum
Baton pass

Dragonite
Adamant nature
76 HP; 252 Atk; 180 Spe
Dragon claw
Aerial ace
Earthquake
Dragon dance

Swampert
Impish nature (I bred him for D/P, but decided to use him in the BF)
36 HP; 56 Atk; 120 Def; 96 SDef
Earthquake
Surf
Ice beam
Rock slide


Other Pokemon I sometimes use:

Umbreon
Impish
252 hp; 176 def; 80 sdef
Baton pass
Toxic
Curse
Wish

Aerodactyl
Adamant nature
252 Atk; 252 Spd; 6 hp.
Rock-slide
Double-edge
Earthquake
Aerial ace

Shiny Latios
Calm nature
236 sp att; 216 spe; 56 hp
Psychic
Thunderbolt
Ice beam
Recover


I seem to have a serious lack of special attackers, but I'm not sure which one to use.

Any suggestions?

Dragonite doesn't need Dragon Dance if Smeargle can Baton Pass Agility and Belly Drum. Better to give it Rock Slide instead. Also Fire Blast over Dragon Claw to stop physical walls like Skarmory.

Swampert is better with Rest over Rock Slide.

Umbreon isn't so effective in-game. If you want a wall, you may try Dusclops.

Dusclops @ Leftovers
Careful Nature
- Shadow Ball
- Pain Split
- Will-o-Wisp
- Seismic Toss

The best special sweeper is Starmie:

Starmie @ Shell Bell
Natural Cure Ability
Modest Nature
- Thunderbolt
- Ice Beam
- Surf
- Psychic

Lum Berry can be a useful item for sweepers like your Dragonite, while Aerodactyl can hold Choice Band.

I think you should not keep a Dragonite because of its 4x weakness to Ice type moves.You can replace it with other Physical Sweepers like Metagross or Heracross.

Don't use Smeargle in the BF, Baton Passing fails. You need 2 pokemon for it to work, and if one dies, the other dies too.

Stick with SubNite/Aero, Starmie and Dusclops/Swampert.
