The 3/6 Pokemon I'm going to have so far are my sweepers.

Cobalion @ Leftovers/Life Orb
252 Atk, 252 Spe, 6 HP
-Swords Dance
-Close Combat

Volcarona @ Leftovers
Flame Body
240 HP, 216 Def, 52 Spe
-Quiver Dance
-Fiery Dance
-Bug Buzz

Hydreigon @ Life Orb/Expert Belt
-Draco Meteor
-Fire Blast
-Super Power
-Earthquake/Dark Pulse

So, yeah I've got no walls really, Volcarona is somewhat but takes a bit of setting up, and can't rely on it for defense. I was thinking having a Jellicent and Skarmory combo, but that still leaves me with no Spinner.
Cobalion's role is better done by Terrakion because of the latter's superior Attack and offensive typing:
-Swords Dance
-Rock Polish
-Stone Edge
-Close Combat
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb/Air Balloon

If you still want to use Cobalion, you'll have to play to its strengths, which are its high Speed and Defense, as well as a good support move pool:
-Thunder Wave
-Stealth Rock/Roar
-Close Combat/Volt Switch
-Hidden Power (Ice)
Nature: Impish/Bold
EVs: 252 HP/208 Def/48 Spe
Item: Leftovers

Jellicent has very good synergy with Volcarona; it switches in to the Water moves it's weak to:
Nature: Bold
EVs: 248 HP/216 Def/44 Spe
Item: Leftovers

-Shadow Ball/Ice Beam
Nature: Calm
EVs: 252 HP/36 Def/220 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Water Absorb
