well, for tyranitar. it learns thunderpunch, so unless you're just really attached to thunder fang, that would be a good replacement there. even with adamant, you're gonna want dragon dance. while tyranitar has a pretty good attack stat, that boost is still nice. especially considering you aren't going to find many pokemon in super singles that have a full 252 speed evs in them.

this isn't competitive, so items are whatever you want. meaning i would highly suggest a scope lens for his item, for a high crit rate with night slash and psycho cut. leaf blade is also a fair replacement for stone edge if you want to cover up more types ( already have rock coverage on t-tar )

you worded things a bit weird, so i can't tell if you were saying you really wanted suggestions for emolga, or what was going on there. but anyway....
i would replace it. you aren't sticking to any tiers ( once again, super single! ) so you're pretty open to use whatever, ( except banned pokemon ). this being the case, the flying / electric type rotom would do a much better job then emolga to mix with your team.


i would give it --- thunder wave, air slash, thunderbolt, and hex / shadow ball

you don't have any conflicting status in your team, so thunder wave cripples things ( gallade is still a bit slow for a sweeper, and t-tar ( if you take my suggestions ) will have slightly less speed with d-dance ) so he'll do great with that. air slash makes for annoying flinch hax ( king's rock or wise glasses / life orb for item ) with thunder wave. thunderbolt is STAB ( can possibly be replaced with electro ball due to thunder wave being there ) and hex / shadow ball is coverage. hex gets the thunder wave boost, but shadow ball is for if you run into a place where you haven't inflicted status and don't want to.

those are my suggestions! hope you do good with your team.

Great answer
maybe go for Scizor  instead of emolga?

Scizor @ Metronome/Focus Sash
evs 252 atk/4 hp/252 spd

Fury Cutter/U-turn
Bullet Punch
Night Slash
Swords Dance
it takes a bit of time to set up, but if you swords dance on the first turn then use fury cutter with the metronome, it racks up to a OHKO pretty quick.
Thanks for the suggestion but I already got a good answer :)
no problem :)
