One question before I start sorting through all this shit, does it have to be mono-Dark?

Before all those professionals come in and say the correct things you should do, I'd like to jump the line and give my 2 cents:

--Overall--
1) Looks too frail.
Yes, Hydreigon and Scrafty do have some bulk, but nearly all the others are frail attackers and just attack for attack(pardon my expressing abilities). So something with resistances or bulk will probably live through all that and start wrecking havoc. You might wanna add some bulky Dark-types such as Mandibuzz(Mandibuzz is recommended for Defog, see below).
2) Entry Hazards. Must take care.
Half of the team takes 25% damage from SR while none is able to stand long with poisoning. If you have nothing to deal with it, your team will wear off quickly if switching is often.

--Individual--
1) Crawdaunt
Since you have Sword Dance, you might want some longetivity (Leftovers) rather than just boosting STAB Crunch. (And Dragon Dance is better in this case for Crawdaunt's mediocre speed) For ability: Adaptability > Hyper Cutter (prevent Intimidate) > Shell Armor (just crits)
2) Honchkrow
Whatever you are dealing with using Shadow Ball, most of the time Sucker Punch can already take care of it. 252Atk/4SDef/252Speed and Adamant should let Honchkrow hit harder.
3) Weavile
Agility may be too useless considering Weavile tremendous speed(and too frail to even set up(?)) Focus Blast sounds great... until 45 SpAtk stat. Better do Brick Break or some physical things.
Ice Shard and Pursuit are definitely good things to consider too (Priority can be a deadly thing)
Weavile may also get Taunt for those entry hazard makers.
4) Houndoom
If you're not going with Rest, Flash Fire is much better for a free switch in and boost. Same as Weavile, try not to go with another attack format when you have a significantly better one (ie. don't Return) while that 4Atk EV and Nature can boost something else.
5) Hydreigon
Focus Miss gonna miss, and Flamethrower if you don't trust Fire Blast. Now you have a place for Leftovers or Choice thingies.
6) Scrafty
Split in 2 ways: Dragon Dance instead of Bulk Up if you want Scrafty to go offensive, while Drain Punch and Rest instead of High Jump Kick for defensive.

Now let's see how the professionals rate your team. I'm now off with my typing spree.

DS.

Kill Honchkrow. He's not pulling his weight on this team. Make him a Drapion or Spiritomb instead. If you need to keep him, delete Shadow Ball.

Crawdaunt should run Aqua Jet instead of Waterfall. And a Life Orb. Though honestly he should probably be a Sableye instead.

Weavile should be all physical. Pursuit/Ice Shard/Icicle Crash/Brick Break/Knock Off are your options for moves there. Also with a Life Orb.

Houndoom needs to be Flash Fire. Give him Focus Blast over Sludge Bomb and Sucker Punch over Return.

Hydreigon is ok I guess, but Wide Lens is a terrible item. Also you could probably EV him to outspeed Mega Garchomp, because that's probably all he's going to outspeed if you're not going to Scarf him. 196 speed EVs and a boosting nature will outrun standard Mega Chomp. Then you can dump EVs into HP and SpAtk.

Scrafty needs work. He'd probably prefer Drain Punch, because it's a focus sash set. Then again, he'd also prefer Lefties for the recovery per turn. I'd recommend changing both of those, and maybe the EVs to be more specially defensive because it's a Bulk Up set.

If you're trying to use a mono-dark team, you should be running Darkrai.

Okay, then stop making it. If whatever thing you're making it for has a no legends rule, they are obviously stupid and don't deserve the attention.

Really? I was gonna use for a league, but I guess I could just quit. I've seen people with out legendaries, and they're good! So do I really need that legendary?

Well, I understand it's not for Breakdown so Darkrai is probably Uber wherever you're going, but no legends is one of my least favorite rules for people to take seriously.

If you still want to compete, Honchcrow is usually much better than Drapion, maybe with a Razor Claw Super Luck set, and never run Spiritomb unless they've banned Sableye.

Oh...I was looking up old videos of teams, and I got some ideas so I thought I would try some of them pokemon on a team just mixed up. But thanks for fixing my team, because I need it for some laddering on Main.  Very Happy

Pretty sure there's no DW in main, You could try one of two replacements for Serperior that I think would be nice for the team.

Serperior (M) @ Leftovers
Ability: Overgrow
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Spd / 4 Def
Timid Nature
- Leech Seed
- Substitute
- Giga Drain
- Dragon Pulse

That can actually work, I've used it before, and occasionally, if you're patient it will stall out half of someone's team. Also, the seed support can be used to help Infernape set up.

Latios (M) @ Choice Specs
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 4 HP
Timid Nature
- Draco Meteor
- Ice Beam
- Thunderbolt
- Energy Ball

Specs Latios will hit like the truck that it's replacing, and with Energy Ball on the set, you won't have to worry about losing grass coverage from the team. Ice Beam can be replaced with Surf, HP fire, or Psychic depending on preference.

For the mono fire team, I would make these changes:

1. I would put Infernape first, and make it a Stealth Rock lead with moves like Fake Out and Stealth Rock in addition to other attacking moves. This way, you can have entry hazards aiding your team sweep the competition.
2. For Charizard, I would switch out Dragon Pulse for Solarbeam. This way, you can counter the Water Pokémon that generally would probably give mono-fire teams trouble. Also, Dragon Pulse doesn't really help Charizard out too much anyway.
3. I would put Rotom-H on this team somewhere, probably over Chandelure. Rotom-H hits Water Pokémon for good damage with its electric attacks, and it is immune to Ground moves, which is a major plus.
4. For Heatran, I would make it into a Flame Charge sweeper. I would probably make its moves Flash Cannon, Earth Power, Fire Blast, and Flame Charge.

No way Steel, Heatran's the only fire type that can go viably bulky. The team needs Heatran to be able to take some hits, otherwise it'll end up being the glass cannon it is already.

The rest of your suggestions are pretty great, though.

Thanks for the compliment, and I see what you're saying about Heatran. If Nats wants the bulky Heatran, then she should make it have something like a Calm nature, maxed HP and Special Defense, and have moves like Toxic, Lava Plume, Roar, Protect, and possibly Earth Power.

I still think that Rotom-H should be included here somewhere though, and that is kind of bulky also (not like Heatran though)

Also, I just thought about this, but Victini could fit well on this team I believe. It has those ridiculously strong V-Creates, and it actually gets Bolt Strike now (as opposed to the weaker Fusion Bolt). I'm not completely sure of the availability of Bolt Strike, as it was released for a Japanese movie event.
