I actually used Garchomp atthe number 3 spot and you wrote that I used Salamence. The reason I think Salamence is doing better is because of 2 main reasons: 1. Intimidate is a life saver against Scyther and Sharpedo who are both problems to Garchomp users (Weavile is going to OHKO with Ice Punch no matter what). 2. Being part flying means Scyther is no threat at all because you resist it's STAB move. Garchomp suffers a OHKO after a Swords Dance.
