Here is my 4th attempt at a random battle team, for singles. Seems to be working well so far, about a 75% win ratio, still could use some work. Although most of my loses, seems to be from misplays outside of getting destroyed, which I can live with.

1. Cloyster @ White Herb
Trait: Skill Link
EVs: 252 Attack, 252 Speed, 4 Defense
Jolly Nature (+Spe, -SpA)
- Shell Smash
- Icicle Spear
- Rock Blast
- Razor Shell

My main lead, I took razor shell over Ice shard for coverage, not sold on it yet, but it's helped me a few times, and times I needed a priority I was able to surive a hit to get off icicle spear.

2. Togekiss @ Choice scarf
Trait: Serene Grace
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature (+Spe, -Atk)
- Thunder Wave
- Air Slash
- Flamethrower
- Roost

Mostly used as a Flinch Machine, simple but effective.

3. Porygon2 @ Eviolite
Trait: Trace
EVs: 252 HP / 184 Def / 72 SpD
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Thunderbolt
- Ice Beam
- Thunder Wave
- Recover

Good All around tan, Able to stall out a lot of pokemon and win the war of attrition.

4. Blissey @ Leftovers
Trait: Natural Cure
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Spd
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Aromatherapy
- Toxic
- Softboiled
- Flamethrower

My Special wall, haven't used much, probably a prime candidate to be replaced.

5. Tentacrue @ Black sludge
Trait: Liquid Ooze
- Rapid Spin
- Toxic Spikes
- Scald
- Protect

Another member I haven't used a lot, haven't ran into much worry from hazards yet, but he is basically my rapid spinner.

6. Breloom @ Toxic Orb
Trait: Poison Heal
EVs: 236 HP / 252 Def / 20 Spe
Impish Nature (+Def, -SpA)
- Substitute
- Spore
- Focus Punch
- Leech Seed

SubSeed breeloom. I love this guy but barely ever use him also, so maybe another candidate to replace.

So far I use the members in order of list, 6th being the least (5% or less)

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Choice Scarf should only be used on Pokemon with 4 attacks or 3 attacks + Trick/status, since it locks Togekiss into the move it last used. Give it Leftovers or Sitrus Berry. Replace Flamethrower with Aura Sphere, since Flying/Fighting has better coverage than Flying/Fire. Also, make Togekiss more defensive; this set should show what I mean:
-Thunder Wave
-Air Slash
-Aura Sphere/Nasty Plot
Nature: Calm
EVs: 252 HP/4 Def.252 SDef
Item: Leftovers/Sitrus Berry
Ability: Serene Grace

A specially defensive spread is better than a physically defensive spread on Blissey because while a physically defensive spread helps Blissey take physical moves more easily, it makes Blissey more susceptible to special moves when it shouldn't be. The preferred nature/EV spread should be 4 HP/252 Def/252 SDef with a Calm nature.
