Honestly when I first made this team I really didn't have any idea or strategy I was going for, but I chose these Pokemon because I liked them, and they are;

240 HP/216 Def/52 SpD
-Stealth Rock
-Ice beam

So I can throw up SR and then Roar the opponent if they are a bad match for Swampert, as well as for the SR damage.

Nujabes@Toxic Orb
Impish/Poison Heal
252 HP/184 Def/72 Spe

My favoured style of battle is a stall and Gliscor is a very good stall when it comes to Toxic stalls and its resistances(?).

252 HP/252 Def/4 SpD
-Sleep Powder
-Leech Seed
-HP Ice
-Power Whip

To take a hit in place of Gliscor and then switch back, I was also thinking of using a Choice Scarf'd Mienfoo with U-Turn/Regenerator, but wasn't sure, what do you guys think?

248 HP/252 Def/8 SpD
-Power Split

Shuckle is one of my favourite stall Pokemon so I couldn't help but use him. The moveset is either the same or similar to one I've read on here about in one of their battle logs they posted.

Nurse Joy@Eviolite
Bold/Natural Cure
84 HP/174 Def/252 SpD
-Seismic Toss

I just thought that Chansey would be a good addition to a stall, but when I saw the EV distribution for this (the 252 in Def), it didn't really make sense because of its low Def rating, so I decided to add a bit to its HP.

When I first used this in PO I forgot to add its EV's xD but it still did well to stall.

Adamant/Solid Rock
160 HP/252 Atk/96 Def
-Mega Horn
-Rock Blast

A definite favourite for me so I just threw him into this team. I used the 'Tank' Rhyperior on Smogon, but I decided to add all its Spe EV's into Def because I believe they are more useful there.

Your criticism is very much appreciated, I am open to changes of my team, but when it comes to tiers I am completely clueless. Also, if you talk with abbreviations please type out what they mean for me; new to that as well

And thank you.

Half your team is weak to Water moves, especially those from Drizzle teams. In addition, Swampert isn't as good as it used to be, though some people still use it. If I were you, then I'd replace it with Ferrothorn, who not only checks/counters Rain teams, but also provides hazards:
-Spikes/Stealth Rock
-Leech Seed
-Power Whip/Protect
-Gyro Ball/Thunder Wave/Protect
Nature: Relaxed
EVs: 252 HP/48 Def/208 SDef
Item: Leftovers

Rhyperior and Shuckle aren't seen often in OU (the standard environment) due to the prevalence of Drizzle teams; IMO, they're best in sandstorm teams, where their Special Defense is increased there. In addition to me adding Ferrothorn to help with rain teams, I'll throw in Gastrodon as an extra check to them, since it can use Storm Drain to raise its Special Attack (you'll have to take out Rhyperior or Shuckle in that case):
-Earthquake/Earth Power
-Scald/Ice Beam
Nature: Sassy/Calm
EVs: 252 HP/4 Def/252 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Storm Drain

Chansey needs max HP and max Defense to help it take physical hits more easily than Blissey can (factoring in the Eviolite boost). It could use Toxic over Protect or Softboiled to wear down Pokemon who don't seem to care about Seismic Toss.

Thanks Platinum, I've implemented your changes and my team does a bit better, I just need to become more adept at using them correctly, but what my team lacks is an efficient OHKO when facing Pokemon like Chansey or Gardevoir that get rid of my status effects.
