I'll be answering this when School ends. This team needs it.
There's a rather large Grass and Electric weakness :/
Its a mono-water team Spoink. Does water have any weakness besides grass and electric?
xD that was a joke lmfao
I was hoping as much :P
Despite it being a Monotype team, a good Monotypist can still construct a team of Dual Types sharing type Syneregy. For example, both Lanturn and Gyarados compliment each other well, forming a Defensive core (Intimidate Gyarados with HP investment and Specially Defensive Lanturn), even though they are still both Water type. This team has a large space for improvement.
I beat a Mono Electric with this team. It didn't have Galavantuala luckily.
My experience with Monotypes *puts on sunglasses* puts me on top BD(B=sunglasses)

Best answer

Cloyster: Switch to an Impish Nature to help it live longer. Also you could consider swapping White Herb for an Ice Gem. STAB 25 BP x1.5 x5 hits doesn't tickle...

Gyarados: you need Waterfall. I would ditch Dragon Tail since you have no Entries to abuse it with anyway.

Gastrodon: needs Storm Drain. Sticky Hold is oy useful against Trickers.

Politoed looks good.

Rotom: if Poli has Drizzle give Rotom Thunder to abuse

Tentacruel: Scald over Knock Off.

Wow the one question I reserved and someone answers. Nice.
You might have a better answer. post away
Oh I will. Im planning to. I have some additional advice, some that you don't agree and / or don't have.
Im actually making my own Mono Water Team lol. I started last weekend, STILL haven't finished it.
Yeah i was on my way to work so i posted quickly. if you have more go for it. idc about ba i just wanted to help
Keep white herb. Without it he dies ibstsintly. And ice gem? Reall? No offense, I upvoted cause i like the rest.
I agree with the white herb. Ice gem was an option albeit a rather gimmick one.
my cloyster doesnt have white herb yet it still lives and sweep. just becuase its standard doesnt mean its always right
