Cinccino

Well I can't replace this one soo ;] looks good to me, no suggestions. ( except like riles said maybe kings rock )


Skuntank

Well I can't really see what he's contributing to your team, other than removing Musharna / Misdreavus so Sawk can spam close combat easier but he's kind of useless outside that role. Your team is lacking hazards, which are pretty vital in this tier seeing as Swellow, Braviary and Pinsir are everywhere. I have a replacement for him though.

Golurk @ Expert Belt
Trait: No Guard
EVs: 76 HP / 252 Atk / 180 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Stealth Rock
- Earthquake
- Shadow Punch
- DynamicPunch


Sawk

I know two scarfers is your thing lol, but this guy is kind of redundant since rotom can revenge kill pretty much everything. So I'd give him a band. Since you're banded adamant > jolly, it doesn't let you outpace much except jolly braviary & timid gardevoir which threaten you out anyway.


Rotom

No problem.


Gorebyss

Looks fine. However, it's sad to say, but Gorebyss is kind of outdated in NU now. So much can revenge kill it even at +2, there's stuff that walls it cold and KOs it back like Amoonguss, the tier is infested with priority, you'll find it very difficult to pull off a clean sweep ( especially against members of this site where every team has scarf rotom ). So let me introduce you to my friend Ludicolo. :3

Ludicolo (F) @ Life Orb
Trait: Swift Swim
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Rain Dance
- Hydro Pump
- Giga Drain
- Ice Beam


Tangela

With Ludicolo in he really screws up your synergy, 3 pokes weak to flying and only one frail resist is a death sentence. Musharna is an epic physical wall & synergises great with your team. Seeing as your other members are more in sweeping roles this can be more of a support set, your team kinda dislikes status one way or another, but passing +2 to Ludicolo is pretty much GG no re.

Musharna (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Synchronize
EVs: 240 HP / 252 Def / 16 Spd
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Calm Mind
- Psychic
- Moonlight
- Heal Bell / Baton Pass / Signal Beam
