Gorebyss can't be your only Baton Passer on the team. You need more Baton Passers, like Espeon. Espeon's Magic Bounce ability reflects most status moves back at the opponent, so it's very useful. I'd put this over Metagross since you already have a Steel Pokemon in Scizor:
-Calm Mind
-Stored Power
-Hidden Power (Fighting)
-Baton Pass
Nature: Bold
EVs: 252 HP/252 Def/4 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability Magic Bounce

Take note that Haban Berry only weakens super effective Dragon moves, and Scizor isn't weak to Dragon; it RESISTS the type.

Bronzong (who's occasionally seen in OU) still walls Garchomp, so Fire Fang (to hit other Steels like Ferrothorn or Forretress) or Aqua Tail (for use against rain teams and to get a big hit on Hippowdon and Gliscor without having to resort to Outrage) are preferred coverage options over Stone Edge.

A true Baton Pass team needs 2-3 members who are capable of using Baton Pass, with the rest of the members being able to abuse those boosts.
