Volcarona is better off setting up Quiver Dances then smashing things. It's also too physically defensively weak for support:
-Quiver Dance
-Fiery Dance/Fire Blast
-Bug Buzz
-Hidden Power (Rock/Ground)/Giga Drain
Nature: Timid
EVs: 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb

or
-Quiver Dance
-Bug Buzz
-Fire Blast/Fiery Dance
-Roost
Nature: Timid
EVs: 252 HP/240 Def/16 Spe
Item: Leftovers

or
-Quiver Dance
-Bug Buzz
-Fire Blast/Fiery Dance
-Rest
Nature: Modest
EVs: 160 HP/236 SAtk/112 Spe
Item: Chesto Berry

Tyranitar has a wide movepool to take advantage of. Never use Hyper Beam-style moves competitively; they leave you a sitting duck the next turn:
-Stealth Rock
-Crunch
-Pursuit
-Fire Blast/Stone Edge/Superpower
Nature: Sassy/Careful
EVs: 252 HP/4 Atk/252 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Sand Stream

or
-Crunch
-Pursuit
-Stone Edge
-Superpower
Nature: Adamant/Jolly
EVs: 180 HP/252 Atk/76 Spe (Adamant) or 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe (Jolly)
Item: Choice Band (Adamant)/Choice Scarf (Jolly)
Ability: Sand Stream

Terrakion needs some serious redoing. It has stronger STABs in Close Combat and Stone Edge:
-Rock Polish
-Swords Dance
-Close Combat
-Stone Edge
Nature: Jolly/Adamant
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb/Air Balloon/Rock Gem

or
-Close Combat
-Stone Edge
-X-Scissor
-Quick Attack/Sacred Sword/Rock Slide
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Band/Choice Scarf

or
-Stealth Rock
-Taunt/Swords Dance
-Stone Edge
-Close Combat
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 252 Atk/4 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Focus Sash

or
-Substitute
-Swords Dance
-Close Combat
-Stone Edge
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Rock Gem/Life Orb/Salac Berry

Garchomp learns Earthquake. Use it:
-Outrage
-Earthquake
-Fire Fang/Aqua Tail
-Dragon Claw/Dual Chop
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Band/Choice Scarf

or
-Swords Dance
-Earthquake
-Outrage
-Fire Fang/Aqua Tail
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Haban Berry/Yache Berry/Lum Berry

or
-Substitute
-Swords Dance
-Outrage
-Earthquake
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Leftovers/Salac Berry

or
-Stealth Rock
-Outrage/Dragon Claw
-Earthquake
-Fire Blast/Swords Dance
Nature: Naive/Jolly
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb/Focus Sash

or
-Stealth Rock
-Dragon Claw/Dragon Tail
-Earthquake
-Fire Blast/Aqua Tail/Protect
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 252 HP/196 Def/60 Spe
Item: Leftovers

Looking at this team, you're vulnerable to bulky Waters. Ferrothorn fills in both Amoonguss' and Aggron's roles in one slot:
-Stealth Rock/Spikes
-Leech Seed
-Power Whip
-Gyro Ball/Thunder Wave/Protect
Nature: Relaxed
EVs: 252 HP/88 Def/168 SDef
Item: Leftovers/Shed Shell
