I'm not sure where to go from there, or even if this is a good idea. I'm looking to throw Spikes and/or Toxic spikes in there somewhere also. Which means I'll need better speed on a dragon tail/roar/whirlwind user I guess. I think I posted this in the right place, correct me if I a wrong.
Garbodor can set up Spikes/Toxic Spikes for you:
-Drain Punch/Toxic Spikes
-Gunk Shot/Rock Blast
-Clear Smog/Giga Drain
Nature: Impish
EVs: 252 HP/240 Def/16 Spe
Item: Black Sludge
Ability: Aftermath

-Gunk Shot
-Toxic Spikes/Drain Punch
-Seed Bomb
Nature: Adamant/Jolly
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Black Sludge/Air Balloon
Ability: Aftermath

Once hazards are up, Meganium can also make use of Dragon Tail:
-Leech Seed/Dragon Tail
-Giga Drain
-Toxic/Synthesis/Dragon Tail
Nature: Bold/Relaxed
EVs: 252 HP/252 Def/4 SDef
Item: Leftovers

Here are some options for Roar/Whirlwind:

-Heal Bell
-Dragon Pulse
Nature: Calm
EVs: 252 HP/4 Def/252 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Natural Cure

-Heal Bell
-Thunder Wave/Taunt/Focus Blast
Nature: Calm
EVs: 252 HP/4 Def/252 SDef
Item: Leftovers

Eelektross gained a bunch of useful moves in B2/W2, so take advantage of those, please:
-Drain Punch
-Dragon Tail/Aqua Tail

EVs: 252 HP/4 Atk/252 SDef
Item: Leftovers
