my usual gimmick team is 6 pokemon with water absorb & surf (poliwrath / lapras / vaporeon / politoed / quagsire / mantine) in fact here are some of my random battles: http://www.youtube.com/user/siburke939 (recorded by others)
lol i only use gimmick teams so i lose quite a bit - i'm training a black team (snorlax / houndoom / seviper / claydol / honchkrow / dusknoir) & a white team (zangoose / absol / pachirisu / togekiss / gallade / frosslass) right now - they should be okay
i've got a modest one (+SpA/-Atk) & a hasty one (+Spe/-Def) ready - i'll trade both over next weekend
let me know which one you want nicknaming (Magus) & which one you want to leave without a nickname (so you can trade it to someone else) i'd recommend using the hasty one for a mixed attacker or the modest one for a special attacker but it's up to you dude - you could always think of another nickname & i'll name both
as for the items - they were an absolute pain to hatch & the 2 items i need the most at present are a Life Orb & an Expert Belt - if you've got them i'd be more than happy!
