Scarf latias still counters Gyarados and Vaporeon and the Pursuit weakness it not 2 bad because Lucario can set up on a poke locked into Pursuit anyway.
Ahh crap that's true... but if i drop rotom i lose the ability to stop gyarados. It also gave me a solid fire attack + spin blocker. There's nothing else out there with the ability to blow up salamences that can replace forretress? Can i stick a choice banded weavile in to Ice shard it to death? Or am i going to need to drop forretress for another dragon and then drop Rotom for something else to counter gyarados?
There's also the other suggestion of putting explosion on forretress and use it to blow salamence (provided i don't get fire blasted from a mix mence) into the abyss.
