By 'all-out attacker' I mean that I don't want it to have any status moves, and I want it to do as much damage as possible to most of the types. I've already sorted Dialga, it's moves are:

Ariel Ace - for Fighting, Bug, and Grass
Ice Beam - Dragon, Flying, Grass, and Ground
Earthquake - Electric, Poison, Fire, Steel, and Rock
Iron Tail - Fairy, Ice, and Rock

It does Super-Effective damage on 13 of the 18 Types (including its weaknesses: Fighting and Ground), with STAB and the Adamant Orb for Iron Tail, and does neutral damage on the other 5 types, so dual types shouldn't be much bother. I just need something like this for Palkia, and I'll probably need Dragon Claw, Aqua Tail, or Spacial Rend for the STAB/Lustrous Orb. I know this is very specific, but any help will be appreciated.

All-out attacker you say? What's with those moves?! No offense, but Dialgia can't run Aerial Ace for crap. And a special attacker would be much better. A good item would be a Life Orb and the suggested set (my suggested set) should be:
Dialgia @ Leftovers
EVs: 252 Hp/252 Sp.atk/4 Spd
Ability: Pressure
Modest Nature
-Draco Meteor
-Flash Cannon
-Fire Blast
-Aura Sphere

Here's the Smogon set:
Dialga @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Pressure
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Modest Nature
- Draco Meteor
- Fire Blast
- Flash Cannon
- Thunder

And for Palkia:
Palkia @ Life Orb
EVs: 252 Sp.atk/252 Spd/4 Hp
Ability: Pressure
Timid Nature
-Spacial Rend
-Hydro Pump
-Fire Blast
-Aura Sphere/Earth Power

Smogon's set:
Palkia @ Lustrous Orb
Ability: Pressure
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Spacial Rend
- Hydro Pump
- Fire Blast
- Thunder Wave

Which set you use is up to you.

Ah, yes, the updated Dialga moveset. That was a great touch. +1 :D
thnx rex! :D
Dragon Pulse instead of Draco Meteor because sp atk drop forces a switch for you.
Ice Beam or Power Gem instead of Aura Sphere on Palkia if teamed up with dialga for more coverage.
Thanks for this, in hindsight I can tell really wasn't using the best movesets. I don't know why I put Ariel Ace there, or how I forgot that Dialga's a Special Attacker. The movesets for Palkia you suggested weren't bad either.
