Jellicent to start with, as requested, I picked scald over wisp because its nice to spam vs poison teams and is good for chipping and burning steel types like celesteela and ferrothorn, it's also more useful for 1v1ing bulky normal types like chansey because you can get chip while they're taunted. Then picked Pex because its naturally the best possible support for a pokemon like Jellicent running hex as its great at spreading status against most teams which can lead to Jelli putting in work later vs bulkier mons. Mega Sharpedo is a good companion to tspikes teams because it can hit hard but also wear mons down with protect and sub spam to support other pokemon later in the game, Psychic fangs coverage is really nice vs poison teams because you can set up substitute up on pex. I used Empoleon as my stealth rocker because you didn't want a typical Swampert mantine pex core, the advantage of Empo is that it can role compress as it can set rocks and defog them aswell. Toxic is useful vs flying teams as they cant be effected by tspikes. Gastrodon is the electric resist of the team and is a good initial switch vs kyurem B as it can tank ice beams well and isn't affected by fusion bolt. Greninja is speed control and gunk shot is there to stop you getting 6-0'd by Tapu Koko even though its still a big threat because it has limited switchins. Ice beam for dragon teams and Dark pulse for psychic teams.

Other options to run are spikes on greninja to wear down bulkier teams easier.
Also you can change haze to Baneful Bunker on Toxapex to help beat Bulu easier and scout choice mons. I'd reccomend putting roar on empo if you do that though.

I decided to use Poisonium Z over Black Sludge since it allows it to OHKO Pokemon such as Mega Diancie which it fails to OHKO otherwise. The Speed EVs lets it outspeed base 50 Speed Pokemon such as Alolan-Muk and Chansey. Next up I added mandatory Stealth Rock user in Garchomp with a Focus Sash Lead set. After that I added Kyurem-B utilizing Life Orb set to do well against matchups like Water- and Poison-type teams. I decided to use Hidden Power Fire over Roost so that this Kyurem-B set is an Anti-Steel set and can break Steel-type teams effectively. The reason why I decided to use Hidden Power Fire over Roost is because the team does not has Kommo-o or Hydreigon to break Steel-type teams so needed some way to patch up that matchup. Now since Kyurem-B lacked Roost, I decided on using Choice Scarf Latias since it can not only provide essential Defog support to the team but it can also provide Healing Wish support to help its teammates. Then Choice Band Dragonite was added since it is an amazing wallbreaker, providing powerful priority move to finish off threats like Greninja. Lastly I decided on using Mega Altaria King DDD set as it loves Toxic Spikes support from Dragalge to beat weakened teams and it is actually very bulky. The Sp.def EVs on it allow it to live Choice Scarf Greninja Ice Beam after Stealth Rock damage. While Defense EVs allow it to not be 2hkoed by non invested Poison Jab from Alolan-Muk. You can try Roost Kyurem-B if you are not too concerned about Steel-type teams. If you decide on using Roost Kyurem-B then change Choice Scarf Latias to Latios. If you have questions regarding this team, feel free to pm or vm me.


Edit: The OP has been updated with the teams posted and this is the current slate for unreserved sets:
Support Mega Altaria
Mega Aerodactyl Rock
Jellicent Water
Serperior Grass
3 Attacks and Roost Mega Charizard X Fire
