    OK, made a new team, would like to hear your thoughts as it's a work in progress :D

    All Pokemon with Leftovers (cba to write it 6 times :P)

    Umbreon - Mean Passer
    - Baton Pass
    - Mean Look
    - Rest
    - Charm/Substitute

    Yeah, it's standard and probably boring. Idea being trap, pass to counter, repeat when necessary and rest off damage.
    Not sure about whether to have Charm to out-stall Curselax and otherwise mess up physical attackers, or use Substitute for something to Baton Pass.

    Machamp (Set 1) - Physical Attacker 1
    - Submission
    - Rest
    - Fire Blast
    - Earthquake

    Machamp (Set 2)
    - Cross Chop
    - Fire Blast
    - Earthquake
    - Rock Slide

    For either set, EQ and the fighting attack are the main form of attack I'll be using. Fire Blast for Skarm if need be, although it won't like a CH Cross Chop much either. Unsure which set to go for, basically I don't like the inaccuracy of Cross Chop, so Submission is a possible replacement. Because of the recoil, that set has Rest. Rock Slide for fliers/flinching possibly.

    Heracross - Physical Attacker 2
    - Megahorn
    - Earthquake
    - Rest
    - Sleep Talk

    Megahorn destroys Psychics, grasses etc. Earthquake for coverage. Resttalk for survivability.

    Starmie - Special Attacker 1
    - Ice Beam
    - Surf
    - Thunderbolt
    - Recover

    Hits practically everything apart from the special walls, and I have other pokes for those. BoltBeam + STAB Surf provides coverage and power. Recover is a given.

    Exeggutor - Special Attacker 2
    - Giga Drain
    - Psychic
    - Leech Seed
    - Explosion

    Decent sp.attacker. STAB attacks hit most thing reasonably hard, Explosion is almost guaranteed to take something with it. Leech Seed on a trapped enemy is just evil. But I like it!

    Blissey - Heal Beller
    - Softboiled
    - Heal Bell
    - Toxic/Light Screen
    - Ice Beam

    Pretty standard Heal Bell Blissey really. Needed as I am using a rester without Sleep Talk (possibly 2 depending on Machamp set), and just to get rid of any other statuses my Pokemon pick up. Not sure about the last move though.

    Thoughts:
    - Plan is to trap-pass what the opponent has out. so keeping Umbreon alive is pretty important. Thankfully, it has decnt defenses, and Heal Bell support for when it is sleeping.
    - Only 4 attackers, so I need to keep them alive really. Hence they all have recovery moves. (depending on Machamp set, and Eggy's options aren't as direct)
    - So far untested. (By me anyway :P)
    - Not sure if I should keep Blissey. Opinions on this please, and if no, suggest a replacement :D

    Rate away!!

    Hope I helped out a bit. I'm not an official team rater so you don't need to take my advice.
