Since you have a pretty big problem with Water Pokemon, you can try out Ferrothorn over Bronzong, since Bronzong and Machamp will be the only Pokemon who will benefit from Trick Room; the rest of your team is a bit too fast for it:
-Spikes/Stealth Rock
-Leech Seed
-Gyro Ball/Protect/Thunder Wave
-Power Whip/Protect
Nature: Relaxed
EVs: 252 HP/88 Def/168 SDef
Item: Leftovers

On Machamp, change it to the Substitute set to help against status, or make it an attacking lead:
-Stone Edge
-Payback/Ice Punch
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 128 HP/252 Atk/128 Spe
Item: Leftovers
Ability: No Guard

-Bullet Punch
-Stone Edge/Ice Punch
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 240 HP/248 Atk/16 SDef/4 Spe
Item: Lum Berry
Ability: No Guard

Since you're relatively weak to Stealth Rock, I suggest you make Starmie your Rapid Spinner for the team to go over either Salamence or Dragonite; it's up to you which one you want to take out. It also has decent synergy with Ferrothorn:
-Hydro Pump/Surf
-Ice Beam
-Rapid Spin
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb
Ability: Natural Cure

If you do decide to keep Salamence, change its set to this. Even though Dragon Rush doesn't induce confusion like Outrage does, it's rather inaccurate:
-Draco Meteor
-Fire Blast
-Brick Break/Earthquake
Nature: Rash/Naive
EVs: 100 Atk/176 SAtk/232 Spe
Item: Life Orb
Ability: Intimidate

-Draco Meteor
-Fire Blast
-Earthquake/Brick Break
Nature: Rash/Naive
EVs: 64 Atk/192 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb

Jirachi is a bit too fast for Trick Room as well. It's well-known as one of the most annoying Pokemon to face off against, courtesy of Serene Grace, and you should take advantage of that:
-Thunder Wave/Body Slam
-Iron Head
-Protect/Stealth Rock/Fire Punch
Nature: Careful
EVs: 252 HP/224 SDef/32 Spe
Item: Leftovers

Sorry if I took apart Trick Room on the team, but most of your Pokemon are just too fast for it.
