Forretress-Very nice, lure in a Hazer and kill it! That's a good strategy. But I suggest using HP-Ghost over Rapid Spin, since some people use Gengar as a Hazer.

Aerodactyl-Has too low Spc Atk to use Fire Blast. Take Ancientpower and Wing Attack over Fire Blast and Sandstorm. Sandstorm isn't a good idea unless you have 3-5 Ground, Rock or Steel types in your team since you might need to bring out one that isn't one of those types at the wrong moment, and the opponent can just switch to something that isn't effected by it. Make it a Mintyrest too over Roar, you have two others.

Lanturn-Nice.

Meganium: A Protecter Meganium. I say go with Curse, Ancientpower, Earthquake, Razor Leaf @Leftovers. Your set is pretty good, I just usually use that set.

Typhlosion: Standard. By the way, why do you have 3 Roarers?

Tyranitar: You already have a Typhlosion psuedohazer, so make Tyranitar all out attacking for two reasons:
a) Being a sweeper here it should have an arsenal of attacks and
b) You need a Water move somewhere, as well as Earthquake, and you can't put only one on because you'd need both.
So put Surf and Earthquake over Roar and Double Team.

Thank you for your time, Pokemaniac Will...Now, is there any more sudgestions/rates/flames for this team before I finalize it, because I've been thinking of a Jumpluff instead of Meganium that has a set like:
@Miricle Berry
-Leech Seed
-Encore
-Stun Spore
-HP Ground?(Because Meganium's original purpose was to discourage Pokemon like Jolteon and Umbreon.)

I've been considering a Cloyster instead of Forretress. What do you think?

Jumpluff is teh ultimate annoyance tool. Leech Seed, Stun Spore/Sleep Powder, Double Team, Encore, @Leftovers. It will discourage the enemy if they get a Mean Look or Agility Encored while being sapped by Leech Seed. Then if their Jolty or Umbreon passes it on to the next Poké. (I think it is passed)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Give Forretress Sandstorm, Spikes, Protect, Explosion, @Leftovers if you like to stall. It has worked for me many times against my friends, eventually they just give up. ^_^
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Cloyster is more or less a lay down the spikes, fight if you can, otherwise explode kind of Poké, unless you can manage to save him. My Cloyster knows Surf, Ice Beam, Explosion, Spikes, @Quick Claw. It saved my against a Lugia once by exploding, so that Jolty could clean it up.

Why use Foretress for Hazer luring? Nothing on your team can power up anyway..I'd just explode on the first available target.

Typhlosion isn't a viable Pokemon and neither is Meganium (though he could _possibly_ function as a support platform and nothing more). Lanturn isn't going to last long enough to do much without some sort of protection (I'd drop Attract for Rest and get a Heal Bell user in there). DT on Tyranitar isn't going to accomplish anything (he won't survive long enough to power it up), I'd give him Fire Blast or Curse.

You have a serious weakness problem. I'm hoping that you don't intend to bring this team near GSbot. Two Pokemon weak to Fire, three weak to Ground and three weak to Water..the individual movesets are okay but as a whole I can't see this team working. The typical JoltWak combo will tear this team up, and that's before bringing in other common Pokemon like Suicune and Snorlax.

Meeh. Apologies for being harsh. If you were trying to be original, then sorry, but if you're putting a team up for suggestions here it should be about one thing only: winning.

Marginally, but you still have a sizeable physical problem.

If you wanted to use those particular Pokemon, try this:

Forretress: Spikes, Explosion, Curse, Rapid Spin (as it was the first time)

Jumpluff: Sleep Powder over HP Fighting.

Alakazam: Psychic, Barrier, Recover, Counter

Blissey: Counter, Softboiled, Reflect/Defense Curl/Curse, Light Screen.

Kazam and Blissey should give you a bit of protection against Snorlax, but personally I'd throw in a Skarmory over Aerodactyl just to be certain.

EDIT: I hear that Kazam learns Counter..
