This is my team:

Blaziken:
-Flare Blitz
-Hi Jump Kick
-Thunderpunch
-Swords Dance

Flygon:
-Outrage
-Earthquake
-Stone-Edge
-U-Turn

Manectric:
-Thunderbolt
-Flamethrower
-Signal Beam
-Volt Switch

Absol:
-Sucker Punch
-Psycho Cut
-Stone-Edge
-Superpower

I still need to find a spinner, I think I'm going with either Forretress, or Excadrill, depending on weaknesses. I'm trying to get an offensive Walrein, but a status move is good too. Wat would work better?

Walrein:
-Surf
-Ice Beam
-Signal Beam
-Toxic

or

Walrein:
-Aqua Tail
-Ice Fang
-Earthquake
-Curse/Crunch

His STAB special attacks are much better, but Earthquake is just so good....

Since you do want Earthquake, I suggest using the special set and have Excadrill for your Spinner:
[email protected] Balloon
EVs: 252 Atk, 252 Spd, 4HP
Nature: Jolly
Ability: Mold Breaker
-Earthquake
-Rapid Spin
-Swords Dance
-Rock Slide

This set is good for Spinning; even if you're blocked by a spin blocker, you can still take most of them out. Gengar, for example, is hit by Earthquake because of Mold Breaker. Aegislash is hit with Earthquake. The only real threat is Trevenant/Gourgeist, but that's why you have that special Walrein, eh?

[email protected]
EVs: 252 Sp. A, 252 HP, 4 Def
Nature: Modest
Ability: Thick Fat
-Surf/Scald
-Ice Beam
-Toxic
-Signal Beam

Hope I helped!

But flygon has Earthquake as well, so it doesnt really matter in that regard. Would you still suggest Special Walrein?
Does Walrein get any other good status moves that work for a tank, but aren't only useful for stallers?
