Ok looking for another poke :P

Requirements:
- Has synergy with Tentacruel
- Can sweep, preferably physical, but Special will work as well
- must be resistant or immune to ground, neutral won't do
- Not reliant on weather to boost attacks or whatnot

Thanks a lot guys.

i got this guys]
I know you've selected your answer mr k but hydreigon is another possibility, but as your running hail it likely isn't the best in this case. The main reason I mention it is because it is immune to **psychic** as ground, while resisting electric. And tentacruel can take ice, fighting and bug moves for it, plus help handle opposing dragons with ice beam
Yeah I saw someone mention it in chat earlier. The only problem with Dreigon is he doesn't have the bulk to effectively wall. But nonetheless he would norm work well.

If you ever fought me you would know why I use Tenta and gliscor in
the same team (wait you have fought me..does that mean your a noob?).
They make a good core together, being able to block all each other
weakness apart from Psychic with is easily fixed. Although most gli
are defensive nowadays, you can go full offence if need be. I'll post
a small check list and a set below, see what floats your boat.

enter image description here

Gliscor @ Flying Gem
Trait: Poison Heal / Hypercutter
EVs: 252 Atk / 186 Spd / 70 Def
Adamant Nature
- Acrobatics
- Earthquake
- Ice Fang / Roost
- Stone Edge

Gliscor @ Toxic Orb
Trait: Poison Heal
EVs: 184 Def / 252 HP / 72 Spd
Impish Nature
- Earthquake
- Protect
- Stealth Rock
- Taunt

For the offensive, you could ad in S-dance if you wish so, but try adding a little more bulk with it. with the defense, sub can be a very good idea with protect and toxic to stop virtually any attack.

Lets go through the check list..

Has synergy with Tentacruel

As explained, they cover each other very well, one with high Def, one with high Spdef and cover each others weakness bar psychic.

Can sweep, preferably physical, but Special will work as well

Offensive Scor can work as a potent sweeper with acrogem. Edgequake gives it very high coverage and S-Dance boosts that attack to riduclous levels.

must be resistant or immune to ground, neutral won't do

Despite being ground type itself, it packs flying power as well, so no ground can touch it.

Not reliant on weather to boost attacks or whatnot

Although it works well in sand stall, it does not need weather to boost it's attacks or effectiveness.

I hope I was helpful, if not then I am a massive noob. :D
