Okay so after much testing I've decided on my current team and i want to know what you all think
Parts of it are fairly traditional methods as you will see..

[email protected]
Speed Boost
Bold (nature could be better but it'll do)
Baton Pass
Sword Dance

Basic set up using substitute every turn and then using sword dance/baton pass when a chance shows itself - usually setting up marowak

[email protected] Club
Stone Edge

Standard Marowak Setup

[email protected]
Natural Cure
252 Sp.Atk / 252 Spd / 4 Sp.Def
Ice Beam

Standard Starmie Special Sweeper

[email protected]
252 Sp.Def / 252 HP
Dragon Pulse
Calm Mind

I'm using Latias as a pure special wall, takes hits such as Gengars shadow ball with ease needing a good 3/4 hits before KO plus the use of calm mind turns it into a decent powerhouse

[email protected]
252 HP / 252 Def / 6 Sp Def
Pain Split
Fire Punch
Ice Punch

Physical Wall

[email protected] Orb
Poision Heal
Seed Bomb
Focus Punch

Standard Breloom Build - used as a last resort

Still need to decide on items etc

Let me know what you think! :D

Smeargle is a better Baton Passer than Ninjask is because it has access to Spore to make the pass easier. Ninjask also has a nasty Stealth Rock weakness and bad defenses:
-Shell Smash
-Baton Pass
-Taunt/Magic Coat
Nature: Jolly/Timid
EVs/ 80 HP/96 Def/80 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Focus Sash
Ability: Own Tempo

Marowak is too slow to sweep effectively. Dugtrio makes a nice revenge killer for you to use:
-Stone Edge
-Sucker Punch
-Shadow Claw/Substitute
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 252 Atk/32 Def/224 Spe
Item: Choice Band/Life Orb
Ability: Arena Trap

Latias is better off with this spread to make it faster and bulkier: 252 HP/4 SAtk/252 Spe with a Timid nature. Hidden Power Fire, Substitute and Roar are also the better options over Psychic because Dragon Pulse has good coverage on its own already.

Gliscor or Skarmory are better physical walls over Dusknoir because of their good defensive typings:
-Toxic/Ice Fang/Stealth Rock
Nature: Impish
EVs: 248 HP/188 Def/72 Spe
Item: Toxic Orb
Ability: Poison Heal

-Spikes/Stealth Rock
-Brave Bird/Taunt
Nature: Impish/Careful
EVs: 252 HP/232 Def or SDef/24 Spe
Item: Leftovers/Shed Shell

SubPunching Breloom is no longer the standard Breloom as of B2/W2 due to the release of Technician, but it's still viable. Use the spread of 12 HP/252 Atk/244 Spe to give Breloom optimal Poison Heal recovery.
Ability: Sturdy
