You have a good team but here's some improvements.

I think on tyranitar you shoul get rid of crunch for earthquake.

On cacturn get rid of your speed and get rid of seed bomb for revenge. It's stab and good.

Ferrothorn is good as it is.

I think you should get rid of hammer arm for outrage. It make it easy to deal with dragons, which could sweep you with their move pools.

Terrikion is great and need no improvements.

Vaporeon is great too, but have in mind that getting a wish vaporeon with a good nature is hard. It took me 2 weeks for Umbreon with wish.

In fact, Wish is very good on Vaporeon.
Your right, dig gives them a free switch.
