Well, there are a lot of terms, I'll just explain some of the "popular" ones.

Wall
Walls have very high defense. They are usually used to block physical moves.


Sweeper
Sweepers try to quickly knock out ("sweep") the opponents Pokemon. They have high Speed and Offensive stats.


Tank
A Pokemon that can take hits, and fight back, like a a "tank"


Staller
Like a tank, a Staller takes hits and fights back. It stalls.
