I understand that there is a difference in tiers and what not but need help find out what will work well with others.

You'll need a different team for the different areas. Battle Tower, I used special sweeper Starmie, Calm Mind Suicune, and some CB Attacker for the last slot. This won't work for the Arena has you need to attack hard and fast there to get a good Judgement.

Suicune still isn't crap. 15 stat points (on average) isn't that much of a difference.

For example, 115 Defense (Suicune) with 0 IVs and max EVs is 298.
105 Defense (Escavalier, if you want confirmation) with 15 IVs and max EVs is 294.

So Suicune is above the average 105 Defense pokemon - and that's a good enough Defense to begin with.

The rest of its stats are similar - since we're talking about a defensive pokemon, even Speed is pretty irrelevant.

Plus, it's only against the AI.

You mean the AI that uses hex-flawless IVs?

No amount of flawless IVs can make up for a human's (generally) superior intelligence.
