I usually use the name "Flynch" in games so I figured I'd make a flinch team for fun. I'll be looking into ideas but I was curious if anybody here had some! I already have the cloyster and togepi. Also I'd prefer not to use king's rock again since It's on my cloyster.

Is there any restrictions to the Pokemon you can get? If not, then Jirachi is a very good fincher.
Jirachi @ Leftovers
Ability: Serene Grace
Nature: Jolly
EV's: Attack and Speed
- Body Slam/Thunder Wave
- Iron Head
- Zen Headbutt
- Fire Punch

This set is one of the most annoying in existence. Thunder Wave is for paralysis, although alternatively Body Slam can be used if you want to Paralyse Ground type and/or are worried about Taunt. Serene Grace gives it a 60% chance to paralyse. Iron Head and Zen Headbutt are STAB, and both have their flinch chance doubled by Serene Grace. Fire Punch is coverage, and can be replaced by something else if there is something you prefer.

There are a few more candidates for Serene Grace flinchers.

Cinccino @ Kings Rock
Ability: Skill Link
EVs: 252 Atk, 252 Speed, 4 HP
Nature: Jolly/ Adamant
-Bullet Seed
-Rock Blast
-Tail Slap

Same as Skill Link Cloyster, Cinccino has 41% of flinching something with a 5 hit move. It has wider coverage as well, and more moves to make use of Skill Link.

Shaymin-Sky @ Leftovers/ Sharp Beak
Ability: Serene Grace
EVs: 252 Sp. Atk, 252 Speed, 4 HP
Nature: Timid
-Air Slash
-Seed Flare
-Leech Seed/ Earth Power/ Synthesis

You can't use Shaymin-Sky in wifi battles as of Gen V, but maybe Gen VI will change that mechanic.

Dunsparce @ Leftovers
Ability: Serene Grace
EVs: 252 HP, 252 Sp. Def, 4 Sp. Def
Nature: Careful
-Glare/ Body Slam
-Headbutt/ Rock Slide

Hey, it works; what can I say. Dunsparce is susceptible to status like Toxic & Burn though, since it's slower than all the others.

Aerodactyl outspeeds almost everything especially outside of ubers.

aerodactyl w megastone or razor fang
either adds power/speed or flinch %
ice/fire/thunder fang 10%freeze, burn, or paralyze + 10%flinch
iron head/rock slide 30% flinch

Weavile, just take a look at the set
Weavile @ Razor Fang
Ability: Pickpocket
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Fake Out
- Foul Play
- Fling
- Thief
Fake out = guaranteed flinch
Fling = guaranteed flinch
thief for other fast king's rock/razor fang flinchers
foul play to destroy all-out attackers, as they are generally faster than weavile

This can only force the opponent to flinch twice before it has to switch out. During those two turns, the damage it deals is usually less than the damage it can deal with knock off or icicle crash in one turn. Therefore, this set is almost completely outclassed by the more common knock off sets.
