You cannot get Crawduant or wailren before the national pokedex. Empoleon is not as good as torterra starter wise. Floatzel is great becuase it can out speed Cynthia's Garchomp and kill it with Ice beam/punch. Gyrados is cool but not very good for this elite for becuase Garchomp can out speed it before it can Ice fang it.

Cannot? Even with GTS?
Nope they are not in the sinnoh pokedex sorry :(
I used Floatzel and won
Thanks dude.and gastrodon
What moveset and item should I use?
Icicle plate Ice punch, Waterfall, Brick break, Bulk up
He said POST National Dex, not PRE National Dex. He is able to get these guys after. As for Empoleon being worse than orterra, I hate to break it to ya but you're in the minority there.

Well, GREAT is Empoleon (Aaron, Bertha, Flint)
Other good options are:

Ice Beam
Drill Peck
Earthquake / Flash Cannon

The first time I went through the Elite Four, I had a Golduck. It has
Surf-Good vs Bertha and Flint
Ice Beam-Godd vs Bertha, Aaron, and Cynthia's Garchomp
Hydro Pump-same as surf
Zen Headbutt-generally a good move
