Wait.... Grass Knot is terrible in NU. Why does your Pokemon have this?
I recommend Samurott instead of Wartortle. More.... He's just better, IMO.
At the very least, don't use Wartortle as an attacker if you're going to use it. It works great as a supporter of the team. Haze, Yawn, Scald, Rapid Spin... all are moves that help out. And Wartortle has awful offenses. If it weren't for those supporting moves, we would find it in the lower end of NFE.
I used grass knot on accident didn't realize I had it instead of energy ball until I fought trachy. Switched that. I wasn't sure what to use on wartortle until I saw your set thanks.
Wartortle needs to be using Eviolite.

Best answer

I think i battled this team more than anybody here. I'll do my best to answer!

Murkrow

That Murkrow completely destroys Physical attackers with FeatherDance. I have to say, that Murkrow is perfect.


Regigigas

At first, that Regigigas caused me some problems. But then, i put Golurk and noticed that he completely walls him. I got an amazing set to use:

Regigigas @ Leftovers
Trait: Slow Start
EVs: 252 HP/ 176 Def/ 80 SDef
Impish Nature (+Def,-SAtk)

  • Return
  • Thunder Wave
  • Confuse Ray
  • Substitute

With a Thunder Wave and a Confuse Ray, the foe has a 37.5% of hitting you. This set is completely walled by Ghosts, like your previous set. After 5 turns, Return will hit extremely hard and it's STAB. Substitute is there for it's usual use.


Rotom-S

That Rotom is perfect. I liked him so much that i put him in my team.


Kabadra

That Kadabra is good. I would replace Energy Ball for Substitute and HP Fighting for Signal Beam. HP Fighting is there because it covers more types for 5 less damage. Everything else is good on him.


I am not sure about Wartortle. He.... can work well as a support but still, i suggest Samurott. Here is the moveset i use for him (and yes, i already used that moveset.)

Samurott

Samurott @ Life Orb
Trait: Torrent
EVs: 252 Atk/ 144 Spe/ 112 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk,-SAtk)

  • Swords Dance
  • Waterfall
  • Aqua Jet
  • Megahorn

You can make him your Swords Dance sweeper! Swords Dance and then Waterfall for STAB, Aqua Jet as STAB Priority and Megahorn as coverage against Grass types.


Probopass

That guy is perfect. With Magnet Pull and Earth Power, trap Steels and kill them so Regigigas can sweep effectively without being resisted. The only problem of the team will be Ghost types but Murkrow can take them out with a STAB Sucker Punch.


Hope i helped you!

You said that regigigas set and I have used it. I replaced drain punch with payback for the annoying ghosts like golurk.So I still might retry your set though.
Ok, perfect.
