IMO, Tyranitar is better off choosing between setting up SR or doing Dragon Dance, but it can't really do both, since it really needs coverage. This set is best for using Tyranitar's excellent special bulk while hitting hard:
-Stealth Rock
-Fire Blast
-Ice Beam/Superpower/Stone Edge
Nature: Sassy
EVs: 252 HP/64 SAtk/192 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Sand Stream

I don't think Seed Bomb should be Cradily's lone offensive move. It could use a move or two, preferably over Protect:
-Rock Slide/Energy Ball/Giga Drain/Seed Bomb
Nature: Impish/Relaxed
EVs: 252 HP/252 Def/4 SDef
Item: Leftovers

On Starmie, use Thunderbolt over Ice Beam so it isn't walled by other Water Pokemon.

I'd switch out Aerodactyl for Terrakion or Landorus:

-Swords Dance
-Rock Polish
-Close Combat
-Stone Edge
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb/Rock Gem/Air Balloon

-Stone Edge/Rock Slide
-Hidden Power (Ice)/Hammer Arm
Nature: Naive/Jolly
EVs: 252 Atk/4 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Scarf
