Unfortunately this being a defensive core I can only give limited help but there a few things you can consider. Of course since you have 3 more members you can decide to use them to help check these threats rather then this core.
Standard CBHera (Adamant 252/252) can rip this core to shreds especially since 2/3 of your walls carry Toxic making it even more powerful.
No Guts boost Megahorn vs.
- 574 Atk vs 348 Def & 394 HP (120 Base Power): 426 - 504 (108.12% - 127.92%) OHKO, no rocks needed.
- 574 Atk vs 186 Def & 432 HP (120 Base Power): 399 - 469 (92.36% - 108.56%), OHKO with rocks, ~50% without.
- 574 Atk vs 284 Def & 534 HP (120 Base Power): 261 - 307 (48.88% - 57.49%), 2HKO always (well 98% of the time).
Alomomola is the only one of your walls which can survive two hits and factor in SR, prior damage, Hera getting a Guts boost beforehand or even losing your Alomomola beforehand. 1-on-1 you can PP stall it but any player with a brain will switch out.
So for one of your other three members I wholeheartedly recommend Chandulure. Why? Simple, it's a pretty effective check to Heracross as it's immune to CC, Megahorn does nothing to it, it can stay in on Pursuit (takes like 60% iirc) and can easily KO back with Fire Blast, Stone Edge is an issue however most CBHera users dislike locking themselves into it as it misses half the time and plenty of things can setup on it. There's little most teams can do against a well-played CBHera tbh, you'll just have to predict well.
Chandulure @ Leftovers
EV's: 48 HP / 208 SpAtk / 252 Spe
Trait: Flash Fire
- Fire Blast
- Shadow Ball
- Energy Ball
Very handy, it can switch in on fire attacks aimed at Amoonguss and it's Water weak is covered by Slowbro and Alomomola. Also gives you a nice WFG formation going.
Standard LO Zapdos (very common) will also cause this core a lot of problems, Slowbro and Alonomola die instantly to Thunderbolt, Amoonguss takes a hefty amount from Heat Wave.
To be honest I'm not seeing Alonomola's place here, it's not fitting in well. Slowbro walls better then it and two bulky waters is iffy. If you opt for Chandulure I suggest Umberon > Alonomola. More bulky and still wish passes while providing resistances to Ghost attacks which Chandulure and Slowbro can use.
Umberon @ Leftovers
EV's: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpD
- Protect / Toxic
- Heal Bell
Since this looks to be a stall team you want the other two members to have hazards and whatnot but I've leave that up to you.
