I am having some trouble in the Battle Frontier with my team. Here are the six Pokemon I use in there. I will tell you the Pokemon, Type(s), and their attacks (Because I don't always have my Game Boy). Please help me.

Tyranitar:Rock/Dark
Fire Blast
Thunder
Blizzard
Earthquake

Crobat:Poison/Flying
Sludge Bomb
Steel Wing
Giga Drain
Aerial Ace

Metagross:Steel/Psychic
Earthquake
Meteor Mash
Psychic
Brick Break

Steelix:Steel/Ground
Double-Edge
Earthquake
Iron Tail
Crunch

Salamence:Dragon/Flying
Hydro Pump
Flamethrower
Dragon Claw
Aerial Ace

Aggron:Steel/Rock
Fire Blast
Thunder
Blizzard
Iron Tail

I also have the Kanto and Hoenn starters (all 6 of them at their max evolution) and I have Entei too.

Tyranitar @ Leftovers
Trait: Sandstream
Adamant Nature
- Dragon Dance
- Rock Slide
- Earthquake
- Ice Beam

Tyranitar is better as a physical sweeper. Ice Beam is only to hit things lňike Flygon hard.
Fighting types should faint to Earthquake/Rock Slide after Dragon Dances.

Crobat @ Choice Band
Trait: Inner Focus
Adamant Nature
- Sludge Bomb
- Shadow Ball
- Aerial Ace
- Steel Wing

Crobat is best as a Choice Bander. Don't use its SAtt stat.

Metagross @ Lum Berry
Trait: Clear Body
Adamant Nature
- Agility
- Meteor Mash
- Earthquake
- Explosion

After one Agility, it can out speed every one you encounter in the BF (excluding Electrode). Brick Break is useless on Metagross.
STAB Meteor Mash's power = Super-effective Brick Break's power

Steelix @ Leftovers
Trait: Sturdy
Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
- Earthquake
- Iron Tail
- Rest
- Toxic

Physical wall. Crunch is useless coming from its Base 55 SAtt.

Salamence @ Leftovers
Trait: Intimidate
Modest Nature
- Fire Blast
- Hydro Pump
- Dragon Claw
- Crunch

Special sweeping Salamence.

Aggron @ Choice Band
Trait: Rock Head
Adamant Nature
- Double-Edge
- Iron Tail
- Rock Slide
- Earthquake

Choice Bander. Aggron's SAtt is only 60. Not worth giving it special attacks.

Salamence is your only special sweeper. All others are physical.
A Pokémon with Surf/Ice Beam or Earthquake/Rock Slide hurts your whole team badly.
You need Pokémons that don't share weaknesses with other team mates like Starmie (special sweeper) or Dusclpos (mixed wall).

A good water pokemon such as starmie or milotic wrecks almost your whole team consider mixing up your types!

Agr33d, you wont stand a chance against a Bulky Water.

Iirc. Get another special sweeper.

Considering this, I think that will leave my teams how they are. They are doing pretty well in the Dome.

I always want to have what I call a "Triple-Elemental" Pokemon (That means they know Fire Blast/Flamethrower, Thunder/Thunderbolt, Blizzard/Ice Beam, and another powerful move that depends on the Pokemon).

^Thats fine, but you are using the wrong Pokémon for that purpose. Best if you get:

Starmie@Shell Bell
Modest Nature
- Psychic
- Surf
- Ice Beam
- Thunderbolt

Starmie carries BoltBeam (Thunderbolt + Ice Beam), which is a common combo on many Pokémons since its hits lots of foes for super-effective damage.
Surf and Psychic are for STAB purposes.

Make your Salamence into a CBer

Salamence@Choice Band
Naughty Nature
- Aerial Ace
- Rock Slide
- Earthquake
- Fire Blast

Earthquake and Rock Slide is standard for any physical sweeper. Aerial Ace is for STAB.
Fire Blast is to take care of physical walls like Skarmory.

And finally get a mixed wall:

Dusclops@Leftovers
Careful Nature
- Will-O-Wisp
- Pain Split
- Shadow Ball
- Seismic Toss

Careful nature protects Dusclpos from Special Attacks, while Will-O-Wisp cuts foe's Physical Attack's power in half. Shadow Ball for STAB and to hit Ghosts, while Seismic Toss hits other types. Pain Split is for damaging and recovering at the same time.

This type of team can ensure a much better success rate than your current choices.
