I can forsee Lapras or Starmie taking this team out with ease, with the help of say... Machamp. Let's go with Zapdos... or Gardevoir... T-Bolt, Drill Peck, Psychic

So Salamence or an electric type it seems...I'd like to avoid both Zapdos and Gardevoir if possible...

How about,

Salamence@Modest

Dragon Claw
Flamethrower
Hydro Pump
Crunch

HERE (http://http://www.smogon.com/rs/strategies/salamence) are some other Salamence ideas at Smogon.

Salamence, as what they said, give it a Mild/Lonely Nature and Dragon Claw, Crunch, Earthquake and another move. Rock Slide maybe.

Maybe a Mr. Mime or Nisjask with a Baton Pass setup.

I don't see how a Physical Salamence would help my team out, seeing as T-tar as that covered...I was thinking Salamence could work if I made more of a mixed Sweeper.

Although the 4x ice weakness doesn't help...

I may pick him though. Does anyone else have some advice?

Alakazam perhaps?

I don't think you should put Salamence in there. You already have Tyranitar, choose a healer or maybe Snorlax.

Vaporeon or jolteon would be nice up there.

I'd say Jolteon to cover you for Electric.. Good Speed and Special Attack.

BTW, torkoal isn't really a tank. He can take physical hits, but not as well as forretress, skarmory, weezing, registeel, or regirock.

Are you sure about starting with Tyranitar?
Sand Stream'll destroy your own team. And it's just too slow (anything faster with Brick Break can own it), while Salamence has Intimidate, best speed, best attack, best special attack (if you're into mixed sweepers), and can be a deadly Choice Bander if you keep strike and running.
Anyway, for the sixth member, try something that can do more than one thing. Blastoise can Roar/Haze and absorb hits, Donphan can Roar and Rapid Spin, Forretress/Cloyster can do Spikes, Rapid Spin, and Explode.

T-Tar seems OK. It has the same power of Salamence, and better defenses. The ability maybe annoying but sometimes will help.
Maybe it have a 4x weakness, but hey, Salamence does too, and Ice moves are more common than fighting. When you face a fighting Poke, you can just switch.

And I don't think Spike and Rapid spin will help much in-game since AI doesn't switch or use spikes much.

Nah, my suggestion for the 6th...maybe something that can support. Baton-passer, Wish-passer, Leech Seed-passer or Light Screen/Reflect-passer.

I think you should get a water type pokemon in your team. Try snorlax teach it surf. Snorlax can learn water types and snolax is pretty darn strong.
