Here. Too lazy to explain

https://pokepast.es/bdce14d73da99db9
I would like an explanation. Specifically, why specially defensive slowking?
Skarmory to handle Garchomp and Rillaboom and nearly all other physical threats

Specially defensive Tyranitar to handle Dragapult and Volcarona

Slowking to handle Tapu Lele and most other special attackers

Dracozolt and Tapu Lele as wall breakers

Excadrill as sweeper
