Cool team. I think that putting primarina here is an interesting concept. However, I do have one small suggestion. In sun, the power of surf is halved. I think that a coverage move such as Psychic might be a good replacement.

Some calcs on surf:

252+ SpA Primarina Surf vs. 252 HP / 136+ SpD Heatran in Sun: 120-144 (31 - 37.3%) -- guaranteed 4HKO after Leftovers recovery
252+ SpA Primarina Surf vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Landorus-Therian in Sun: 188-224 (49.2 - 58.6%) -- 68% chance to 2HKO after Leftovers recovery
252+ SpA Primarina Surf vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Victini in Sun: 156-186 (45.7 - 54.5%) -- 47.3% chance to 2HKO
252+ SpA Primarina Surf vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Volcarona in Sun: 152-180 (48.8 - 57.8%) -- 93.8% chance to 2HKO
