To be honest, this isn't a very effective lead because you only fully set vs Roserade and non-Choice Scarf Smeargle. And if you want this to work you need to support it with dual screens + a Rapid Spinner if you don't make this a lead.

Venomoth @ Choice Specs
Tinted Lens
Timid
4 HP / 252 SPD / 252 SATK
- Sludge Bomb
- Bug Buzz
- Psychic
- Sleep Powder

Choice Specs would be better in my opinion for the extra damage, and it will need it since this OU.

Poliwrath @ Leftovers
Water Obsorb
Adamant
252 HP / 252 ATK / 4 DEF
- Bulk Up
- Brick Break
- Ice Punch / Rock Slide
- Substitute / Rock Slide / Waterfall

Ice Punch or Rock Slide helps more with Flying-types, and Hypnosis has awful accuracy, so Substitute would do best.

Exeggutor @ Lum Berry
Chlorophyll
Rash
4 ATK / 252 SPD / 252 SATK
- Sunny Day
- Solarbeam
- Sleep Powder
- Explosion

With Tyranitar, SS will cut out Sunny Day, and honestly this would work better in full Sunny Day team. And you already have another sleep inducer, so I doubt it would work with Sleep Clause. Replace this with Celebi, Shaymin, etc whatever you would like.

Steelix @ Leftovers
Sturdy
Careful
252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpD
- Earthquake
- Gyro Ball
- Stealth Rock
- Explosion

You have all the defense you need, and more Special Defense helps with Draco Meteor and the like.

Tyranitar @ Leftovers / Babiri Berry / BlackGlasses / Life Orb
Sandstream
Jolly
4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Speed
- Stone Edge
- Dragon Dance
- Taunt / Fire Punch / Aqua Tail / Earthquake
- Crunch

Stone Edge offers more power and better coverage than Earthquake. Babiri Berry to survive Scizor's Bullet Punch, BlackGlasses so you can 2HKO Swampert without taking recoil, Life Orb for the added boost, etc. Jolly helps because Tyranitar is incredibly slow it at least helps him outrun Starmie, etc. Fire Punch for Scizor, Aqua Tail for Gliscor, Hippowdon, and the like, and lastly Earthquake for Steel-types.
Comments in bold ↑. Not a huge rate, just some suggestions, might come back to help with threats.

Since you're using Tyranitar, this team automatically becomes an OU team. Charizard, Venomoth, and Exeggutor don't work very well, and Poliwrath and Steelix are average at best, so you're better off either making it a full NU team (Rhydon instead of Tyranitar, Gastrodon/Primeape instead of Poliwrath etc), or going full OU. And as stated, Charizard is not a good lead in any metagame. Try something like Gligar, Sandslash or Typhlosion (Scarf, Eruption) in NU.
