If Froslass is using Lefties, use the EV spread of 248 HP/8 SDef/252 Spe.

Forretress has a serious case of 4-moveslot syndrome; it needs a coverage move alongside Volt Switch to prevent it from being total Taunt bait. Specially defensive Forretress doesn't do as well as physically defensive variants, as Forretress still takes loads of damage from Special moves regardless:
-Spikes/Stealth Rock/Toxic Spikes
-Rapid Spin
-Volt Switch
-Gyro Ball/Hidden Power (Ice)
Nature: Relaxed/Bold
EVs: 252 HP/252 Def/4 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Sturdy

Another Rapid Spinner you can consider instead is Tentacruel or Starmie because of their Fire and Fighting resistances:
-Scald
-Rapid Spin
-Toxic/Toxic Spikes
-Protect/Substitute
Nature: Bold
EVs: 252 HP/236 Def/20 Spe
Item: Black Sludge
Ability: Rain Dish

Starmie:
-Hydro Pump/Surf
-Blizzard
-Thunderbolt
-Rapid Spin
Nature: Timid
EVs: 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Natural Cure

Cloyster's preferred item is White Herb to negate Shell Smash's defensive drops.

You really need a 'mon that can check Fire Pokémon well, like Heatran or Chandelure:

Heatran:
-Lava Plume
-Stealth Rock/Roar
-Will-o-Wisp/Toxic
-Protect
Nature: Calm
EVs: 248 HP/252 SDef/8 Spe
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Flash Fire

or
-Fire Blast
-Earth Power
-Hidden Power (Ice/Grass)/Dragon Pulse
-Stealth Rock/Flame Charge/Taunt/Substitute
Nature: Timid/Modest
EVs: 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Air Balloon/Leftovers
Ability: Flash Fire

or
-Overheat
-Flamethrower
-Earth Power
-Hidden Power (Ice)/Dragon Pulse
Nature: Timid/Modest
EVs: 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Choice Scarf
Ability: Flash Fire

or
-Overheat/Fire Blast
-Earth Power
-Dragon Pulse
-Hidden Power (Grass)/Flamethrower
Nature: Modest/Timid
EVs: 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Choice Specs
Ability: Flash Fire

Chandelure:
