Tbh, I haven't gotten a 50+ win streak in the Battle Maison yet, but I can still help you with this.

Gliscor should use an Impish nature and an EV spread of 248 HP, 244 Defense, 16 Speed. Gliscor's special bulk is pretty bad, so there's little point in trying to boost it.

Mega Kanga needs Earthquake; you can't rely on PUP to deal with Rock and Steel types. So you have to choose between Crunch and Sucker Punch. The EVs should be a simple 252 attack, 252 Speed, 4 HP.

As the 3rd member, a Water type special tank would probably be good.

That looks like a pretty solid team so far. If I were you, though, one change I would make is, as Zekrom said, replace either Sucker Punch or Crunch for Kangaskhan with some other move; these two are basically the same type, so it'd be a good idea to stick with only one. Also, since this thread would fit better in Battle Center, so I'm moving it there. ^^"

Moved.

For Water based special tanks, I have found these pokemon! I will list stats and I need you guys to help me choose which I should use and with what moveset, item, ability and EVs! Here we go:

Blastoise: 79HP-83ATK-100DEF-85SPATK-105SPDEF-78SPD
-- Tentacruel: 80HP-70ATK-65DEF-80SPATK-120SPDEF-100SPD
-- Vaporeon: 130HP-65ATK-60DEF-110SPATK-95SPDEF-65SPD
Politoed: 90HP-75ATK-75DEF-90SPATK-100SPDEF-70SPD
Slowking: 95HP-75ATK-80DEF-100SPATK-110SPDEF-30SPD
Mantine: 65HP-40ATK-70DEF-80SPATK-140SPDEF-70SPD
- Ludicolo: 80HP-70ATK-70DEF-90SPATK-100SPDEF-70SPD
Swampert: 100HP-110ATK-90DEF-85SPATK-90SPDEF-60SPD
- Milotic: 95HP-60ATK-79DEF-100SPATK-125SPDEF-81SPD
Walrein: 110HP-80ATK-90DEF-95SPATK-90SPDEF-65SPD
-- Jellicent: 100HP-60ATK-70DEF-85SPATK-105SPDEF-60SPD
- Rotom: 50HP-65ATK-107DEF-105SPATK-107SPDEF-86SPD
Empoleon: 84HP-86ATK-88DEF-111SPATK-101SPDEF-60SPD

These pokemon are the ones I could find with decent SPECIAL DEFENSE. Which one should I add to my team of kangaskhan and gliscor? The ones with double dashes are pokemon I have never used and would like to use but can only use one, and the ones with dashes are ones I never used and wouldnt mind using but not as cool or interesting to me as the ones with double dashes. I will, however, use any of the pokemon listed if its the recommended pokemon for the team. I would love to use Tentacruel or Vaporeon as stallers just like I did for my Gliscor with Knock Off, Earthquake, Toxic, Roost; thats IF one of those two are recommended! (Would LOVE Tentacruel, but any of those pokemon I listed are usable!)

Thanks so much for the help!

Mantine has 140 base Sp.Defense? Too bad it sucks othewise.

Politoed and Walrein were great last gen, but the lack of perma-weather hurts those 2 a bit. Ludicolo's a bit rain dependent as well. Out of the ones on your list, these are probably the best candidates:

Tentacruel, Vaporeon, Milotic, Jellicent, and Rotom-Wash

Ability: Water Absorb
EVs: 248 HP, 252 Defense, 8 Sp.Defense
Moves: Scald, Wish, Protect, Toxic/Ice Beam/Roar

-Milotic w/Leftovers
Nature: Bold
Ability: Marvel Scale
EVs: 248 HP, 252 Defense, 8 Sp.Attack
Moves: Scald, Recover, Ice Beam, Haze/Dragon Tail

-Jellicent w/Leftovers
Nature: Calm
Ability: Water absorb
EVs: 252 HP, 32 Defense, 220 Sp.Defense
Moves: Scald, Will-o-Wisp/Toxic, Shadow Ball

-Wash Rotom w/Chesto berry
Nature: Bold
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 252 HP, 252 Defense, 4 Speed
Moves: Hydro Pump, Thunderbolt/Volt Switch, Will-o-Wisp, Rest

or
