Simisage doesn't seem very needed with 2 other Special Sweepers. And it seems that Emboar is your only physical fighter. If I may suggest this Tauros:

Tauros @ Life Orb
Trait: Sheer Force
EVs: 252 Atk/ 252 Speed/ 4 HP
Adamant Nature (+Atk, - SpAtk)

-Double Edge/Return
-Zen Headbutt
-Rock Slide
-Earthquake

Nice coverage and Rock Slide and Zen Headbutt get the Sheer Force boost.
Forgetting emolga?

Best answer

Well well. I feel insane answering this. I know you're making a new one and i'll try to answer that one as well.

Miltank

First of all, make Miltank your lead. He has the bulk to set up Rocks and not getting KO'd. Run Sap Sipper instead of Thick Fat for absorbing Grass attacks directed towards Gorebyss. Everything else is perfect on him.


Gorebyss

Long time ago, in the ancient ruins of Alpha, there was hieroglyphs on a wall. They were written by a sage and they said: '' HP Electric over Grass due to a lack of Quagsire in the tier. It get x4 on Mantine, more important I think than x4 on Seismitoad.'' So take HP Grass off and put HP Electric. All else is perfect.


Haunter

I, by far, prefer Substitute on Haunter than Trick. If not Substitute, give it at least Disable. T-Bolt is not the best option on him. I suggest HP Ground for more coverage. Everything else is good.


Emolga

Physical Emolga, huh? Well, i suggest an Emolga moveset that may not deceive you.

Emolga @ Leftovers
Trait: Static
EVs: 192 Spd/ 160 HP/ 156 SAtk
Modest Nature (+SAtk,-Atk)

  • Charge Beam
  • Substitute
  • Air Slash
  • Roost

Substitute + Charge Beam combo. I guess you know what it is. Air Slash is STAB and has this awesome chance to flinch and Roost is a reliable way to heal yourself.
Sure, you can keep your Emolga.


Emboar

That Emboar is close to perfect as i suggest Earthquake over Head Smash for less recoil. Nothing else to change.


Simisage

Simisage? No thanks. You already have too many Special Attackers in your team. I suggest a Support Pokemon. Audino should do the job.

Audino

Audino @ Leftovers
Trait: Regenerator
EVs: 252 HP/ 252 SDef/ 4 Def
Calm Nature (+SDef,-Atk)

  • Wish
  • Heal Bell
  • Toxic
  • Protect

The basic Audino Cleric. I would have happily suggested Alomomola but you already have a Water type. Wish is for healing teammates and Heal Bell is for the Status Problems. Toxic is for Stalling and works well with Protect.


I hope i helped you a bit! I know the advice is minor but still.

Audino is way to predictable that a good ol' Taunt pwns it ;)
Flareon might work. It has wish heal bell protect and space for one STAB move....
But then he gets a Rock weakness.
