I haven't played Pokemon games further than Pearl so I only know the moves that's in the previous Pokemon games.

What I would do:
Ursaring'smoveset is pretty good.

Change Hitmontop's Rapid spin with something more effective since rapid spin doesn't really do much. It doesn't really do any damage to the opponent.
Maybe change Foresight too.

Since you're planning on fighting the Battle tower, You will need a varies types of move. You can Google "TM&HM list" then choose which moves that's best for your Pokemon. That's what I usually do.

Go with Bug bite over U-turn, with it's ability you will have a STAB move with 180 base power if I'm not mistaken (stab+technician) Pursuit works nicely so super power may not be needed. Considering I only play at the battle tower in times of extream boredom I can't say much.

I would leave them as is, they actually look fine to me, most types are covered. Only thing I suggest to watch out for is the stupid minimizing chancey's it seems funny and all when somebody else fails and can't hit it. When it happens to you it's just no fun :(
