Default need some Psychic on team... (Offensive)

My team is (for now): I want to incorporate a Psychic type move or two into my team, whether that means switching one of my sweepers out, or whatever. I'd like for a replacement to make up for what got taken out, but without being able to deal super effective damage to fighting types will be very hard.... especially when a lucario or machamp gets thrown out, or something...
thanks everyone!!!

i noticed 2 things: 1) two of the pokemon on my team know Ice Fang. 2) no one knows any bug moves. so i am replacing Drapion's Ice Fang with X-Scissor, with STAB, and a nice base damage...

Please delete all the god-awful underscores, stars and lines- It makes it much harder to rate. Just use the standard layout:

Pokemon@Item
Nature (Ability)
EV Spread
Move 1
Move 2
Move 3
Move 4

I'll rate when that's done.

Currently, I don't think any of your pokemon can learn a Psychic type move. Personally, I like to add Alakasam to my team due to his extremely high Special Attack. (3rd highest, only losing to Mewtwo for second and Deoxsys (Attack form) for first) Although I think possibly one or two of your pokemon can learn a move of that type. I'll try to look it up and tell you later...

These movesets need smogon.com re-working. The Luxray, Drapion, and Poliwrath in particular need to be re-thought. Drapion needs toxic spikes, that's his niche. It generally takes skill and experience to use ambiguous pokemon like Poli and Luxray in the competitive format. Judging by your movesets (6 sweepers?), you're just beginning. I think smogon.com is where you should be spending time for now.
