Default Team Advice?

I want to join the online battling scene, so I wrote out a plan for a team that I want to use. I haven't actually made this team yet, and it's not really complete, but it's something I plan on doing once I have enough time. I don't really care about Pokemon Tiers as I'm more concerned about using my favorite Pokemon.

Here's my team so far:

Spoiler!


Salamence is just a last-minute addition to fill-in for the 6th Pokemon. I'm not even sure if I really want to use him or not. I'm considering another Pokemon with Trick Room since my fighters are so slow, but I want to avoid having too many Pokemon with the same weaknesses It's probably inevitable, though.

So any suggestions? Thanks.

I would suggest shell smash white herb carracosta over your build if you want him to sweep

He looks like he plans on using trick room. So cursing is just better.

Thanks for the replies.
Personally, I think both the White Herb/Shell Smash and Curse movesets are good. Curse, since it will increase a Pokemon's speed under Trick Room, and Shell Smash since it doubles a Pokemon's Attack and Special Attack at once. Since I would already be using a Nature that decreases Speed while also avoiding Speed EV's and IV's, it would still have use under Trick Room.

Hmm, with its Hidden Ability Dragonite could probably make a good Tank/Sweeper, too.

Yeah, use Dragonite.
