Here is my team for Pokemon black:

Dragonite - dragon dance, outrage, fire punch, fly

Gyrados - ice fang, waterfall, earthquake, stone edge

Rotom (fire) - overheat, thunderbolt, shadow ball, thunder wave

Tyranitar - crunch, earthquake, stone edge, fire punch

Excadrill - x scissor, shadow claw, earthquake, swords dance

Gliscor - earthquake, stone edge, ice fang, swords dance

Any tips for hold items, move sets, or anything would be appreciated.

Thanks so much!

Gliscor - hyper cutter

Dragonite - inner focus

Tyranitar - sand stream

Excadrill - sand rush

Gyrados - intimidate

Gliscor, Could have either leftys or Life orb?

I have my leftovers on Rotom right now.

How does the team look, move sets and all?

Should I change out any of the Pokemon? I think they all work pretty well together but any feedback would be great

Anybody have any suggestions?

Nobody has any more advice?

EVs for those Pokemon would be helpful too.

Dragonite could use Roost instead of Fly for recovery.

You can consider Dragon Dance on Gyarados (over Ice Fang).

Heat Rotom is best with:
-Pain Split (from the HG/SS move tutor)
Nature: Modest
EVs: 120 HP/252 SAtk/136 Spe
Item: Leftovers

-Volt Switch/Hiddne Power (Grass)
Nature: Modest/Timid
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Specs/Choice Scarf

Use Rock Slide instead of Shadow Claw on Excadrill.

If you're willing to re-breed or transfer again from Gen IV, try out this Tyranitar set:
-Stealth Rock
-Fire Blast
-Ice Beam/Superpower/Stone Edge
Nature: Sassy
EVs: 252 HP/64 SAtk/192 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Sandstream

...and natures are good to include too. :x

I suggest re-breeding Gliscor, or getting a Dream World Gliscor. That abillity really isn't good at all - however, while your set (other than Stone Edge) is mostly suited to a Toxic Orb+Poison Heal Gliscor, technically you could still make use of the Acrobats set:

Gliscor@Flight Gem
252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
- Swords Dance
- Acrobatics
- Earthquake
- Substitute (though I've found that taunt can work - and if you really want to, you can use ice fang because no opponents really predict in-game)

While this is suited to the sand veil ability, it can still be used on its own and really hurt the opponent, giving Gliscor a free kill basically.

As previous posters have alluded to, this definitely violates the rules because it lacks necessary detail:

— Teams must include six Pokémon, along with their item, ability, nature, EV spread, and four moves.
If you cannot think of how to fill a few item or move slots, that's fine, but teams must be mostly complete or they will be locked. Please use something resembling the following format when listing each Pokémon:

Pokémon @ Item
Ability (if required)
- Move 1
- Move 2
- Move 3
- Move 4

For now, I'm going to lock this. You can always repost or PM me and edit and I'll just unlock the thread for you...just make sure you include the necessary information. ;( If you need assistance with filling in those blanks, the Simple Q&A sticky is a good place to start.
