Hippowdon (F) @ Leftovers

Trait: Sand Stream

EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Sp.Def

Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)

  • Earthquake
  • Stone Edge
  • Stealth Rock
  • Roar

He sets up the sand which is useful for this team, and Stealth rocks because this team doesn't appriciate switching that much.
Adamant max attack and 2 attacks for doing damage after setting up stealth rocks.
Roar gets the game running a little bit.

Gigalith (M) @ Leftovers

Trait: Sand Force

EVs: 252 HP / 196 Atk / 60 Def

Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)

  • Stone Edge
  • Earthquake
  • Heavy Slam
  • Curse

Gigalith is awasome, He gets 50% Sp.Def boost by the sandstorm, Moves boosted by ability, Curse brings his physical stats to high levels.
Stone Edge is STAB, Earthquake coverage. Heavy Slam is just a filler, Not really sure what else.
Heavy slam doesn't give any coverage earthquake and stone edge doesn't, I'm not however sure what else move i should have though.

Gliscor (M) @ Toxic Orb

Trait: Poison Heal

EVs: 252 HP / 184 Def / 72 Spd

Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)

  • Earthquake
  • Ice Fang
  • Swords Dance
  • Protect

Gliscor has serious tanking going on with max hp and nearly max defense, Protect stalls with the sandstorm and toxic heal heals Gliscor.
Ice Fang for dragons.
Swords dance to boost his attack to a nice stat of 452 after 1 swords dance, STAB Earthquake.
Gliscor's typing is immune to ground type moves and recists fighting type moves which is useful for the Registeel rock-types in this team.

Chandelure (F) @ Choice Scarf

Trait: Shadow Tag

EVs: 4 HP / 252 Sp.Atk / 252 Spd

Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)

  • Shadow Ball
  • Fire Blast
  • Energy Ball
  • Psychic

This team is pretty much only physical attackers, So here's a special attacker.
He also serves another role though: After getting my weather up with the hippo the opponent can either switch to save their weather layer if they have one, If that's the case I'll save the hippo for later after finishing off their weather layer, If the opponents WL stays in though and attacks hippowdon, Chandelure can come in, trap that motherf*cker and hopefully finish it off.

Registeel @ Choice Band

Trait: Clear Body

EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SDef

Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)

  • Iron Head
  • Earthquake
  • Hammer Arm
  • ThunderPunch

Nice coverage, Recists grass type attacks and can hit water types with choice banded max attack Thunderpunch, Flying types too.
Just an awasome Pokemon.

Regirock @ Leftovers

Trait: Clear Body

EVs: 252 HP, 4 Attack, 252 Sp.Def.

Careful Nature (+Sp.Def, -SAtk)

  • Stone Edge
  • Drain Punch
  • Ice Punch
  • Curse

Stone Edge offers high power STAB with increased chance of a critical hit landing, Drain Punch provides Healing and coverage.
Ice Punch hits dragons for the KO.
Curse boost Regirock's good 100 base attack stat and Sky-High 200 defense stat which is nice.
This is Regirock's physical stats after 1 Curse: Atk 355.5, Def 654. The HP at full is 364 and combined with a Sp.Def of 492, Gives nice bulk.

If suggesting any replacement, Do NOT suggest Tyranitar or Sand Rush Excadrill.

My only suggestion is to have one more special attacker.
I agree with Mew, I would either Run Special Registeel, or... yeah.
Focus Blast.... ;/
Id Run Alakazam, due to no sandstorm damage and life orb, and id go with careful nature on the gigalith
