I think I can say this confidently that Dusknoir really isn't that good. You're far better off using Dusclops, even though it's Taunt weak. The main reason why I'm harping on Dusknoir so much is because a) Intimidate is everywhere, you already have a great damage-dealer to Cresselia in the form of Tyranitar, and c) non-STAB Earthquake is almost always pathetic. Even if you gave that Dusknoir max Attack, it still wouldn't be hitting Tyranitar or Terrakion that hard with Earthquake, for example. If you really want to use that Mental Herb, I suggest switching Dusknoir for Cofagrigus: it's got better physical bulk, a better ability, and can use Will-o-Wisp and Pain Split efficiently.
The other pressing issue I have with this team is Camerupt: Eruption Heatran is MILES better than Camerupt. Eruption Heatran hits harder, has much better typing (which in turn gives it a much better time against Latios), and much higher bulk. You can also use Skill Swap much more efficiently with Heatran for those reasons, so I say that you should most definitely get rid of Camerupt.

Hi, EV Doctor here to improve your spreads.
Be sure to make all the Speed IVs 0 for TR use!
Dusknoir: use Eviolite Dusclops, it has vastly superior bulk. 252 HP / 252 SpDef / 4 Def will work. Sadly, it doesn't have Levitate. If you really want the super bulkiness and Levitate, try eviolite Misdreavus like Enosh did.
Gastrodon: try the offensive spread in the Gastrodon for Dummies article
Landorus: try Scarf if you want speed. You can make it Adamant 228 Speed to creep Max Speed Thundy-i and still be really strong.

Heeey, EV intern/nurse here to suggest a few things. 0 Speed IVs on a TR team is good but make sure at least someone is speedy, just in case TR doesn't get set up. I saw a lack of priority moves on your team which can help in/out of TR.
Eviolite misdreavus would make an interesting replacement for Dusknoir.
Edit: Sorry, I was thinking of Icy wind on Cress. slipped my mind there

Hi, it looks like your team also has a slight problem if TR isn't set up. Most of your mons besides Lando-T are pretty slow. I would consider adding a slightly faster 'mon. Maybe something interesting like Choice Scarfed Kingdra > Gastrodon could counter Latios with a faster DM and even race around in the rain.
