I would say a Rotom, I'm not completely knowledgeable in OU at the moment so I can't say which one but it seems to fit good and also has levitate.

Played with the same core and added slowbro for the fighting weakness as well as scarfed magnezone but I'm not entirely sure with it. It helps trapping opposing steel types aswell against pelipper and togekiss. 

 

Edit: did not read correctly I used excadrill over garchomp cause I played the team pre sinnoh

No point in running chople berry with those moves, you legit do 0 damage to every single fighting type in OU, or anyone with a strong enough fighting coverage. Zam isn't all that common, and you outspeed reuni, and still tank an unboosted focus blast if you're with those EV's.

SE>rock slide, Superpower> Low kick, and make a choice for the last 2, Stealth rocks and a coverage move, albeit special or physical, can do fine there, depends on what you need.

No protect needed, especially since no lefties or the fact that you're not running any stall to benefit from the free protect turn. Make it a sdance set or a scarf revenge killer, both are rather op.

Yikes, just no, why both flame and hp flying? Only thing hp flying would be more beneficial than the other 2 would be vs volcarona. If you fear volc so much, scarf jolly chomp can help you with that.And again, no need for protect, same situation as before.
