Default Normal/Steel Team

I'm trying to make a normal and steel type team.

Ferrothorn @ rugged helmet
252 HP/ 188 Atk/ 64 Def
Ability: Iron Barbs
Nature: Brave
Moves: Leech Seed, Power Whip, Stealth Rock, Gyroball

planning to lead with this to set up leech seed and stealth rock then switch if i can't hurt the opponent with power whip or gyroball

Bronzong @ light clay
252 HP/ 152 Atk/ 8 Def/ 216 Spdef
Ability: Levitate
Nature: Relaxed
Moves: Reflect, Light Screen, Earthquake/Gyroball, Explosion

set up screens to help with defenses, not sure which will be better out of Earthquake or gyroball, and explosion is for last ditch efforts

Porygon2 @ evolite
252 HP/ 100 def/ 156 spdef
Ability: trace
Nature: Bold
Moves: t-wave, recover, icebeam. t-bolt

supposedly a very good defensive pokemon with broad coverage and healing possibility

Snorlax @ leftovers
188 HP/ 104 def/ 216 spdef
thick fat
curse, return, crunch/earthquake, rest/selfdestruct

Scizor @ life orb
4 Hp/ 252 atk/ 252 speed
Ability: technician
nature: adamant
Moves: Swords dance, bullet punch, brick break, u-turn

main attacker, set up swords dance and hopefully do some priority damage with bullet punch and use u-turn to bring out my powerhouse

Slaking @ choice band
4 Hp/ 252 atk/ 252 speed
Ability: traunt
nature: adamant
moves: Return, Fire Punch, Pursuit, Earthquake

powerhouse, will use scizor first and scout then u-turn and bring out slaking if i need to. pursuit is to hit them before they flee. gonna hit and switch.

any help will be appreciated or even a replacement pokemon. Im not attached to any of these pokemon yet cuz i havent started building this team yet.

Default Re: Normal/Steel Team

No special sweeper and a typing bottleneck make for a very unsuccessful team. Fighting types will plough through your entire team with just their STAB attack, and any physical wall will laugh in the face of anything you through at it. Scrap Slaking and Bronzong. Dual Screen setup is a lot worse this generation given how hard everything hits now and the popularity of taunt, and Slaking is just plain crap. Bring in Jellicent for the Fire resist and Fight immunity, and bring in a special attacker in the final slot. I'd recommend Latios for its Fighting and Ground resistances, and for generally being awesome.
