Yeah, Psychic-types and Dragonite are shaping up be the tiers biggest threats. I can definitely see triple, perhaps even quadruple Psychic being a legitimate and even deadly strategy. There are so many good Psychic-types in the tier, such as Alakazam, Mew, Slowbro, Starmie and Exeggutor. The amount of Psychic-types makes Machamp unviable, which is a shame because its Dynamic Punches hit really hard, when there isn't some Slowbro there to take it.
Some Pokemon I've enjoyed using include specially defensive Dragonite, while it doesn't have the sheer power that DD Dragonite packs, it's great for taking on sun thanks to its resistances to both Grass and Fire. The set I've been using is Dragon Claw / Dragon Tail / Roost / Thunder Wave, while this probably isn't the most effective moveset, it gets the job done. It's very effective alongside hazards. Some hazard setters that synergise well with Dragonite include Cloyster, it can take Ice-type attacks, while also taking on Dragonite.
Speaking of Dragonite, it can easily afford to run a mono-attacking set, although this easily gets walled by Slowbro and Cloyster. I was thinking in one of its spare moveslots it could run Thunder/Thunderbolt to take them both out, although I'm not sure how effective this would be in practice.
