I'm so close to finishing this team for ORAS WiFi Singles, I just need one more Pokémon to fill in the last slot. This is the team so far:

Heatran@ Air Balloon
Ability: Flash Fire
Nature: Modest
EVs: 252 SpA / 244 Spe / 16 HP
- Earth Power
- Lava Plume
- Taunt
- Stealth Rock

Tangrowth@ Leftovers/Big Root
Ability: Regenerator
Nature: Bold
EVs: 252 HP / 232 Def / 44 SDef
- Giga Drain
- Knock Off
- Earthquake
- Leech Seed

Breloom@ Toxic Orb
Ability: Poison Heal
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 HP / 4 Spe
- Spore
- Swords Dance
- Mach Punch
- Seed Bomb

Azumarill@ Assault Vest
Ability: Huge Power
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 252 Atk / 240 HP / 16 Spe
- Play Rough
- Aqua Jet
- Waterfall
- Superpower

Scizor@ Life Orb
Ability: Technician
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def
- Bullet Punch
- Roost
- U-Turn
- Knock Off/Tailwind

The final slot should go to a Special Attacker. I was considering Mega Latias for power, or Gengar/Mega Gengar to Spinblock. This Pokémon should be able to counter some of the team's major flaws, as well as not add any. Preferably, it should be somewhat bulky, which is why I considered Latias. It doesn't necessarily need to be a Mega, Scizor can always take that spot. Also, I have to catch/trade for this Pokémon myself, so try and keep the answer simple. Egg Moves are also difficult to obtain, so please try to steer clear of those. Also note that, of necessary, Lefties can be taken from Tangrowth and given to the suggestion 'Mon. Thanks a mil!

Why not try Mega Sableye?

It has plenty of bulk with an extremely good Ability in Magic Bounce, which bounces back any form of status moves thrown at this team, and also prevents Stealth Rocks on your side of the field. Mega Sableye just sits there and sets up on so many things its ridiculous. It needs the Egg Move Recover and the Hidden Ability Prankster though, thus it may be a bit of a pain to find, but it will be worth the effort.

Heres a set that you can try out:
enter image description here
Sableye(F) @ Sablenite
Ability: Prankster
EVs: 248HP, 252 Def, 8SpDef
Bold Nature (+Def,-Atk)
-Dark Pulse
-Will 'O' Wisp
-Calm Mind
-Recover

This set is pure evil. On the first turn of Mega evolving, you get the Prankster priority and can go for Will 'O' Wisp/Calm Mind depending on what you predict your opponent to do. See a potential Stealth Rocker? Proceed to Mega Evolve and boost in their face as their rocks, taunts, whirlwinds just get bounced right back at them. The bulk that this thing gets is insane. It put a lot of pressure on your opponent as they want it dead as quick as possible. Just pivot around your two Steels and take out the Fairies that threaten it and proceed to Boost to +6 and sweep. I cannot count how many forfeits I caused with this thing. Seeing as you have Sableye as an Avatar, I see it as a (perfect?) fit.

1) Very observant of you!

2) This is perfect. I have a Mega Sableye with Prankster and Recover! Impish nature though, but I can breed for that. Thanks!
Thanks! Great that I could be of assistance :)
