My problem is with three of them, everyone else works great. I put florges in there to heal my team and its a pretty good special defense wall and can take physical hits pretty well too. Gogoat is up in the air. I didn't have coverage for ground or water. so i through in Gogoat, it seemed to work OK but then i had two fire weaknesses. Then there's Aggron, i just cant figure out the best EV spread with moveset. He's either strong but slow and weak defense or high defense but low attack. Maybe i should invest into a water type? Oh and also i need a rapid spinner because those stealth rocks kill me. Maybe Tentacruel could be a good choice? I'm not sure. I'll leave that up to you guys

Firstly, I think that Tentacruel would be a good substitute for Gogoat if you put HP Grass on it and speed EV's (as to cover the ground weakness), along with a STAB water move for the fire types and all, and rapid spin. Last move is up to you, but I would go with Sludge Wave or another poison type for Fairy's. And then you can put on an assault vest if you'd like.

For Aggron, try using him with Rock Polish, Fire Punch, Earthquake, and Iron Head (or Heavy Slam if you like) with 252 in HP and ATK, and 4 in DEF, and an Adamant Nature. It's what works for me, but I won't tell you how to run it.

I think you should swap out either Toxic or Aromatherapy for Moonblast on Florges. so that it's not full support. It's never a good idea for full support pokemon.

Lastly, you might try swapping out one of your physical attackers for another special attacker (especially if you decide not to follow my advice above). All of your attackers are physical attackers and if you come across a physical wall like Deoxys-D it could prove a difficult obstacle to get over. Chandelure could fit nicely, and it could be your Choice Scarfer, which is another thing I think would fit nicely into any team.

Careful. It is always a good idea to include support Pokémon such as pink blobs, Sylveon, Umbreon or Florges. They hea the whole team freely.
