    Hey, this is another team I made, with pretty good synergy. Hydreigon is supposed to be the spearhead of the attack, with the others as support.

    Hydreigon @ Choice Specs / Scope Lens
    4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    - Fire Blast
    - Dark Pulse
    - Focus Blast
    - Dragon Pulse
    I call this set the 'PulseBlast' which is pretty obvious if you look at the last word on each move. This set has great coverage, and they all have great power. Some of them don't have as good accuracy though. Overall, one of my favourite Hydreigon sets.

    Infernape @ Choice Band / Life Orb
    Iron Fist
    4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
    - U-Turn / Focus Punch
    - Mach Punch
    - Thunder Punch / Substitute
    - Flare Blitz
    This set is pretty good, I think. Thunder Punch can deal some nice damage to Jellicent, one of this pokemon's main counters, as well as Water-types it can outspeed. Mach Punch is a great move thanks to Iron Fist, which boosts its power by 20%. SubPunch combo isn't bad, especially how Iron Fist makes Focus Punch's power soar, but it comes at the price of the Choice Band, U-Turn and Thunderpunch. But FP's power is 266, so... Yeah, still not sure what to do there. Infernape resists Hydreigon's Bug weakness.

    Jellicent @ Leftovers
    Water Absorb
    252 HP / 8 SAtk / 248 SDef
    - Scald
    - Shadow Ball
    - Ice Beam
    - Recover
    Pretty standard, really. King of the 'stache, Jellicent has a place in almost any team. It's good SAtk allows him to go in for the kill, while also being able to fend off opponents with his SDef and HP. Scald is a great new move that lets Jellicent burn his attackers, while getting a nice STAB move in. Shadow Ball is another STAB, and Ice Beam allows him to hit Grass-types hard. Recover is basic in that Jellicent likes the recovery. This Pokemon covers Hydreigon's Fighting weakness.

    Ferrothorn @ Leftovers
    Iron Barbs
    128 HP / 128 Atk / 252 Def
    - Leech Seed
    - Stealth Rocks / Thunder Wave
    - Power Whip
    - Curse
    Ferrothorn is one of my favourites in this new generation. It has great attacking and defensive abilities, as well as an awesome move pool. This set allows Ferrothorn to combine these factors together to make a Sweeper-Wall. If Curse once or twice, Power Whip is a great move that can hit a lot of Pokemon hard. Leech Seed provides with a small amount of healing each turn, coupled with Leftover recovery, and Thunder Wave can allow Ferrothorn to go first! Ferrothorn resists against Hydreigon's Dragon weakness.

    Mamoswine @ Focus Sash
    Snow Cloak
    252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def
    - Ice Shard
    - Endeavour
    - Earthquake
    - Icicle Crash
    This set is a bit gimmicky, but eh. Focus Sash may seem like a strange item, but using Endeavour first turn can be lethal if there was a potential OHKO. Ice Shard has +1 priority to clean up after Endeavour. Icicle Crash and Earthquake are both powerful STAB Attacks. Mamoswine covers more Dragon types.

    Tornadus @
    4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    - Hurricane
    - Rain Dance
    - Psychic
    - Hidden Power (Ground)
    This looks like a strange set. It probably is. This is the first time I've ever used Tornadus, but I'm taking on the challenge. Hurricane has 100% accuracy in the rain, which is brought on by priority Rain Dance. The rain lasts for a while, and if Tornadus doesn't make full use of it, I'm sure Jellicent can. Psychic an put a damper on Fighting and Poison types, especially Toxicroak, and Hurricane covers Fighting, Bug and Grass. HP Ground is used to counter two of Tornadus' weaknesses, Electric and Rock, as well as Fire, Poison and Steel. Not bad, all in all. It covers the Fighting-weakness that half the team has.
