Woah, whoever added the sprites and made this all fancy, thanks a bunch! But I still need my 6th member :(
it's actually Blobby-Olo apparently ^.^
Well, since no one suggested anything, I came up with my own:
Blastoise @ Focus Slash
Trait: Torrent
EVs: 252 SpA, 100 Atk, 156 Spd
Mirror Coat
Ice Beam
Also I thought I'd note that 50 EVs aren't a multiple of 4 :P
i noticed that u need a fourth move for Magmortar for mine the moves i used were Flamethrower, thunderbolt,focus blast, and psychic

I recommend you choose a water type pokemon as your sixth team member. If you want a pokemon that can take hits choose vaporeon but if you want an attacking water type choose starmir in hg/ss or floatzel in d/p + platinum.
If you don't want a water type choose a great fighting type. Heracross in hg/ss or Machamp or lucario. Don't want a fighting type choose a grass type such as roserade.
Moveset for these pokemon:

Vaporeon: Surf, Blizzard, Shadow Ball, Toxic
Starmie: Surf, Thunderbolt, Psychic, Ice Beam
Floatzel: Surf, Brick Break, Ice Beam, Bulk Up
Heracross: Megahorn, Close Combat, Earthquake, Stone Edge
Machamp: Dynamic Punch, Earthquake, Stone Edge, Bulk Up
Lucario: Close Combat, Dragon Pulse, Flash Cannon, Psychic
Roserade: Sunny Day, SolarBeam, Sludge Bomb, Swords Dance

Overall I'd choose Floatzel because it is a great pokemon that can sweep through a team when it uses bulk up. But it is your choise. I hope this helps

Choose Starmie! It gives you a great, diverse moveset. It has great speed and good Sp. Attk. which helps with all the Sp. moves it would have and average Def. and Sp. Def. so it can take a few shots throughout the fight. It overall would benefit your team the best
Good Starmie set here.

Starmie @ Life Orb
Trait: Natural Cure
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spd
Timid Nature
- Surf/Hydro Pump
- Psyshock
- Ice Beam
- Thunderbolt

Your team has two pokemon (Muk/Magmortar) that are weak to ground. Earthquake is one of the best moves, and it really helps to have one pokemon with flying/levitate that you can switch into earthquakes. Tangrowth is going to help somewhat here, but it still gets owned by stray coverage moves (like poison jab Terrakion) and doesn't have enough attack investment to reliable take down pokemon like Taurus.

I would recommend adding Skarmory, because he provides a counter to physical dragons and is immune to ground type attacks. The standard Skarmory set works fine.

Skarmory @ leftovers
Sturdy | Impish
224 HP / 252 Def / 32 SpD
- Brave Bird
- Whirlwind
- Roost
- Spikes

Also, Tangrowth should run AncientPower instead of Rock slide, and re-invest the Atk EVs. The set would look something like this:

Tangrowth @ Leftovers
Leaf Guard | Relaxed
252 HP / 100 SDef / 100 Def / 56 SAtk
- Sleep Powder
- Giga Drain
- AncientPower
- Leech Seed

The added SDef EVs give Tangrowth the ability to survive a specs Latios Draco Meteor, among other things.

1. Skarmory was OU in gen 4. This is a UU team.

2. 252 SpA Choice Specs Latios Draco Meteor vs. 252 HP / 100 SpD Tangrowth: 501-591 (124 - 146.28%) -- guaranteed OHKO
Terrkion did not exist, and Latios was confined to Ubers
