This is my team so far...I'd like to keep it as offensive as possible and not swap any Pokemon out unless I really need to. Also trying to decide on a last Pokemon, so suggestions/setup for one would be great. As I am missing a mega...that would probably be best. I also know that I am missing hazards so I was thinking of switching out one of my Greninja's moves to Spikes (was bred w/ it)? Thanks in advance!

Greninja looks fine, but HP Fire > U-Turn if you can get it. EBelt would also work very nice.
I suggest converting your Talonflame to a SD set, SD > U-Turn
TTar would like Sassy > Careful, and Pursuit > Earthquake
Mold Breaker > Sand Force because of the weather nerf, and lets it hit Rotom with an Earthquake
A last good move for Jolteon would be HP Ice if you can get it or Signal Beam

For other members I would suggest something physically defensive such as Skarmory as your team has some trouble with physical attacks
Okay, I'll take your suggestions for my current Pokemon. Thanks!
But are there any other bulky physical resistant megas that would fit on my team? Skarmory would work but
ideally I'd like a mega in my team too. Plus I already have Talonflame as a flying type so wouldn't that open me
up to rock weakness?
Skarmory isn't weak to rock since it's a steel type

You might have some success with a physically defensive Mega Venusaur, but idk how good it is since I haven't used it yet. Other than that there aren't really any Megas who are fit to be dedicated walls
Mega Venusaur is excellent. Just remove Talonflame and Mega Pinsir before you use it though. Tyranitar counters both, so it fits well.
