No legendaries.
Can survive physical and special attacks easily.
For each type, 1 Mega and 1 Non-Mega.
Don't do the same Pokemon twice.
No outrageous amounts of weaknesses( ex. Tyranitar, Exeggutor), Avoid 4x weakneses if you can.
Provide movesets please.

Providing movesets for every single one of them will be a lot of useless work, it's easier to just look up their sets.
I feel like this question is very abusive. I guess it's fair though.
A bit excessive :/

Can you change celebi to a non-legendary please?
There we are.
Efforts pay off very well. Good job Flafpert.
Change sableye to confagrigus
Change sableye to confagrigus
I choose Sableye over Cofa because of its Ability and reliable recovery. Although the Cofa have more raw bulk and is capable of setting up, it's ultimately can't stall as well without healing. Overall Sableye is just better at utelizing it's bulk.

didn't provide amega and anon-mega for each and had legends and tyranitar. But helped quite a bit
Note that I clubbed together both Megas and non-Megas because there are just so many Mega pokemon in one type, and the number wasn't sufficient enough for a good list.
Milotic, Suicune and Vaporeon for Water
Possibly Hitmontop for Fighting
Definitively Druddigon for Dragon
Eh I've never really seen a Druddigon in action before, but I guess it counts as bulky.
Mega Diancie is not bulky
Yeah I wrote Diancie, not mega.
