OMG So Many Decisions!

OK well, I had a team chosen, but I was having second thoughts as to my type coverage.

Here is what I was thinking at first:
Meteor Mash
Zen Headbutt

Blissey@Focus Band
Seismic Toss

Double Team

Bronzong (levitate)@??? (maybe the berry that lowers fire weakness)
Toxic (or Stealth Rock)
Block (or Calm Mind)
Confuse Ray (or Safeguard)

Tangrowth@White Herb
Leaf Storm
Sludge Bomb
Focus Blast
Sunny Day

Tyranitar@Salac (liked Crunch too much)
Stone Edge
Dragon Dance
Ice Fang (was EQ but needed an Ice to take care of dragons)

I wasn't sure about it at first. I didn't like TTar having Ice Fang. She would have nothing to do against Steel Pokemon. I was thinking of replacing Tangrowth with PorygonZ. Then I could give TTar EQ.

PorygonZ@(the item that increases special)
Ice Beam
Tri Attack
Shadow Ball/Psychic/Nasty Plot

Then I didn't like it because TTar would be WAY too OU. Then I thought about Mamoswine. I'd then give PorygonZ Dark Pulse instead of Ice Beam/Shadow Ball,etc.

Stone Edge
Avalanche/Ice Fang
??? (maybe Return/Stealth Rock/Bite)

I am being overwhelmed by this. I have a Tournament in two weeks. Finals are also adding some stress onto me. I just need to decide on whether to use TTar/Mamo or Pory/Tang (or any other Physical and/or Special Sweepers). The other four are defintely on my team. I just need a moveset for Bronzong.

I'd appreciate if someone could give me some tips and pointers to help me. Thanks in advance.

I'm tired, so I'm not going to rate the entire team.

Metagross should have leftovers, so should blissey. Shuckle sucks.

Stealth Rock
Reflect/light screen.

TTar also needs leftovers, as you don't need the speed with DD.

Last slot on mamoswine (who should hold either leftovers or a CB) should be ice shard.

I might update this later, I probably won't, but just DON'T USE SHUCKLE!

Thanks for the Bronzong moveset.

However, I am definitely going to use Shuckle. I don't care if he sucks. He (or she in my case) is one of my favorite Pokemon.

The only thing I really need is a Special Attacker and a moveset.

Thanks for your comments aquasuicune. I really appreciate them.

Explosion > Zen Headbutt on Metagross. Or Thunderpunch so you don't get walled by Skarmory.

I wish I could give Metagross Thunder/Ice/Fire Punch. I can't because there is no way it can learn them on DP. The only way was from Emerald, but it's already Pal Parked, so unless there is another way, I will probably go with Explosion. It had Sludge Bomb, but that became special, so I just filled it in with Zen Headbutt.

Also, I can't give Blissey Leftovers because Shuckle already has Leftovers. I can't (and don't want) to give the same item to my Pokemon.

Thanks for the tips though.
