Dunno what advice to give you about steel types, but don't worry, Probopass isn't banned. If you look him up on Smogon, you'll see he's only in Nu and Ru.

Go with variety. There are multiple Steel types that are dual types. Empoleon, Bisharp, Skarmory, Magnezone, and Aggron are good examples. Also, Steelix is a MUST. I have one that is EV trained in Defense and Attack and holy s**t can it take a hit. What would be one hit KOs with my Aggron or Empoleon takes ten hits with my Steelix.

you might want to try using weather to your advantage.
sandstorms up the special defense of rock types, which would help aggron and probopass. Probopass and excadrill also have abilities that benefit them in a sandstorm.
additionally, rain dance weakens fire type moves.

Go with dual-types that cover their weaknesses, like Skarmory, Empoleon or Heatran. Also, be prepared to experience earthquake a lot, including those that take 4x damage, like Aggron. Oh, and if you want a strong steel type, go with Metagross.

I'd suggest a Lucario, but sadly, it's a glass cannon, so I don't know.
