Sorry it's not too pretty this time. I'm in a rush. I'll fix it up later. All help is greatly appreciated

Cloyster @ Life Orb [Water / Ice]
Jolly Nature
Ability: Skill Link
EVs: 48 HP / 252 Attack / 208 Speed
- Shell Smash
- Icicle Spear
- Rock Blast
- Shell Blade

The powerhouse and the main member of this team. Gen 5 has made this pokemon great. I used to use him RBY and now he is useful enough to use competitively.

Magnezone @ Leftovers [Electric / Steel, x4 Ground Weakness]
Timid Nature
Ability: Magnet Pull
EVs: 40 HP / 252 Sp. Attack / 216 Speed
- Substitute
- Thunderbolt
- Hidden Power [Fire]
- Flash Cannon

Magnezone is here to cover Cloyster’s biggest weakness. Empoleon. Since Empoleon can resist all of Cloyster’s moves and OHKO him with a Grass Knot. I figure Magnezone would be the best switch in since his ability and keep Empoleon from switching out and I can quickly get rid of him. Flash Cannon is there just in case someone wants to switch a Tyranitar on something I don’t have trapped.

Forretress @ Shed Shell [Bug / Steel, x4 Fire Weakness]
Relaxed Nature
Ability: Sturdy
EVs: 252 HP / 176 Defense / 80 Sp. Defense
- Toxic Spikes
- Spikes
- Rapid Spin
- Earthquake

Forretress is for a Defensive Wall and to be able to set up Spikes and T. Spikes and also blow away entry hazards.

Jellicent @ Leftovers [Water / Ghost]
Bold Nature
Ability: Water Absorb
EVs: 248 HP / 216 Defense / 44 Speed
- Scald
- Will-O-Wisp
- Recover
- Taunt

Jellicent comes in on predicted Rapid Spin and can stall many pokemon. Taunt is there to stop pokemon using moves like Blissey. Will-o-wisp is there for anything that can resist the poison from Toxic Spikes or if Toxic Spikes gets blown away.

Hydregion @ Life Orb
Modest Nature
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Sp. Attack / 252 Speed
- Dragon Pulse
- Fire Blast
- Taunt
- U-Turn

Going to try this one. Fire Blast for Steels and U-Turn for Celebi and Reuniclus

Terrakion @ Leftovers
Jolly Nature
Ability: Justified
EVs: 50 HP / 252 Attack / 252 Speed
- Swords Dance
- Substitute
- Sacred Sword
- Stone Edge

A end game sweeper and can take down the likes of Gyarados, Herracross, Hydreigon, Conkeldurr, Heatran, and Rotom-W. Also and experimental Pokemon.

Not here for an incredibly detailed rate but tbh your team has a hugehugehuge issue, especially if Cloyster is your key sweeper - you're Conkeldurr weak. I think the only things it doesn't OHKO with a +1 Mach Punch is Magnezone and Jellicent, and Jelli loses to Guts-boosted Payback where Magnezone hits with with Thunderbolt and then dies to Drain Punch and Durr gets all its health back. I'd try something like Reuniclus or Gliscor over someone - right now, you simply cannot avoid getting beaten by Conkeldurr entirely.
