Pokémon Professor?
Trick Room Team.

Dusknoir @ Leftovers
Trait: Pressure
EVs: 252 HP / 76 Def / 180 SDef
Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)
- Thunderpunch
- Trick Room
- Pain Split
- Will-O-Wisp

Lead. Sets up Trick Room, causes Will-O-Wisp, etc.

Bronzong @ Leftovers
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 HP / 152 Atk / 8 Def / 98 SDef
Relaxed Nature (+Def, -Spd)
- Gyro Ball
- Earthquake
- Trick Room
- Hypnosis

The second Trick Room set-upper. Gyro Ball because of how slow it is, Earthquake for stuff like Metagross etc, Hypnosis because it's there.

Tangrowth @ Leftovers
Trait: Leaf Guard
EVs: 252 HP / 200 Def / 36 Atk / 20 SAtk
Relaxed Nature (+Def, -Spd)
- Earthquake
- Focus Blast
- Grass Knot / Power Whip
- Sleep Powder / Hidden Power [Ice]

Tangrowth is like, anti-metagame. Not particularly sure which moves to choose though. Power Whip provides some help against Gyarados, but Grass Knot is overall a good move.

Tyranitar @ Choice Band
Trait: Sand Stream
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Crunch
- Stone Edge
- Earthquake
- Pursuit

CBTar, works with Trick Room well, good Physical attacker, and helps Cradily.

Cradily @ Leftovers
Trait: Suction Cups
EVs: 252 HP / 164 Def / 92 SDef
Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)
- Toxic
- Rock Slide
- Recover
- Stealth Rock

Sets up Stealth Rock and walls stuff, especially when Sand Stream is in play.

Slowbro @ Leftovers
Trait: Own Tempo
EVs: 216 HP / 252 Def / 40 SAtk
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Slack Off
- Hidden Power [Electric]
- Ice Beam
- Surf

Main Gyarados counter, also useful due to the low speed.


Brains for brawn
People who hate Choice Band Teams lol
IMO give everything a -Speed Nature to help you go first.
Fighting_Master does have a point, though- you are Heracross weak. Bronzong takes a whopping 74%-86% damage from Megahorn, and everything else but Dusknoir takes a beating from it as well.

I'm actually going to suggest a Weezing or Cursing Muk over Tyranitar, as it isn't helping any. Or you could whip out a Vespiquen.

I'd go Grass Knot over Power Whip on Tangrowth, and focus more on Special.


Pokémon Professor?
Cradily is kinda designed to go with the Sandstorm though. I might swap that out too for something else if Tyranitar is taken out. Maybe.

I wouldn't mind giving Vespiquen a try :x
