This is the team I have planned for Pokemon White.

I'm open to all suggestions about what I have here, but don't recommend me dropping any actual Pokemon for something else (though there is a possiblity I could switch out Zebraika for Shibirudon). I want to use these Pokemon (give or take Zebra/Shibi). No items are listed as I haven't decided who gets what (I don't just throw Leftovers on every Pokemon). I have been bouncing back and forth between Zebraika and Shibirudon. Shibirudon is clearly much better than Zebraika. Zebraika has a shallow, horrible movepool and inferior stats, but I personally love it tenfold over the derpy Shibirudon. I love Luxray, and Zebraika reminds me of it. A lot.

Rock Slide > ZenHeadbutt for Zekrom. It hits Ice types and generally more and better supereffectives than the Psychic type.

Surf gets field use, perfect accuracy and a lot more PP than Hydro Pump. I strongly recomend it.

Giga Impact = nonono. Rock Slide as well please, it gets awesome coverage with Earthquake.

Volt Charge = Wild Charge? Either way Volt Charge doesn't exist.(Unless some crazed fan wants Volt Tackle and Wlid Charge added together to make a 210 power-never- missing-no-recoil-ultra-smexy-Haxorus-beating-game-breaker. It should also have a Nuaghty(+atk -def) nature that doesn't hurt Overheat's power.

Earthquake over Drill liner on Doryuuzu. There are very few doubles and about six triples even in White. EQ gest moar power and accuracy. 'Tis da win. Sandstorm only hurts the rest of your team and is not worth using therefore. Swords Dance and a Jolly(+spd -spatk) nature should be enough to KO most.
Actually Wargle, Zekrom and hihidaruma could all use a jolly nature too.
