    -causes 1/16th opponents HP/turn
    -Rock-type Sp.Def*1.5
    -Sand Rush Speed*2
    -Sand Veil Evasion*1.2(?)
    Hippowdon @ Rocky Helmet/Sitrus Berry
    -Stealth Rock
    -Fire Fang

    Hippowdon mainly to bring in sandstorm and SR. Roar to counter StatUps, Substitutes, and cause SR damage. I like Fire Fang because it has chance to burn->cut opponents atk in half. Earthquake is good STAB.

    Aerodactyl @ Power Herb
    Rock Head
    252/hp 252spe
    -Sky Attack
    -Rock Slide
    -Fly(?) suggestions?

    Aerodactyl is fast and hard-hitting with STAB Sky Attack with Power Herb. STAB Rock Slide that can also flinch. I have tailwind in there to throw in there maybe right before Aerodactyl is about to get KO'd.

    Excadrill @ Life Orb
    Sand Rush
    252atk/ 252 spe* *edit:ev's were in atk, NOT hp, as stated in initial post.
    -Swords Dance
    -Rock Slide

    Here for obvious reasons.

    Tyranitar @ Leftovers
    -Curse/Iron Defense
    -Stone Edge
    -Fire Punch/Focus Punch

    Sandstream in case opponent changes the weather. Since it's rock type it gets the SpD boost, Substitutes get hard to break after turn or 2 of Curseing. STAB Stone Edge, Fire Punch is super effective on Steels and Grass types, and has a chance to burn. Leftovers.
    Garchomp @ Brightpowder(?)
    Sand Veil
    -Swords Dance

    Stoutland @ Silk Scarf
    Sand Rush
    -Thunder Wave

    Sand Rush makes it a great revenge killer, especially with STAB Retaliate. Thunder Wave is also awesome because of Sand Rush. STAB Return, and Crunch to deal with Ghosts

    I feel like there's something missing.

    you need Descriptions for all your pokemon and more moves for Stoutland. You should get rid of either tyranitar or hippowdon since you don't need two pokemon with sandstream.
    i would put a ferrothorn in there as well. for your excadrill put those HP ev's in attack instead. i think bright powder might be illegal to use, so put a choice scarf on chomp. take fly off aerodactyl as it is a bad move.

    If you can edit those descriptions into the OP, that would be great!
