Yea exactly what sora said. I get a better overall coverage out of AT/EQ than I do out of SR/EQ and this Aerodactyl is a bluff (Not to mention a LOT of people will switch out to soemthing that could eat an SR with NVE damage, since they dont expect aquatail it is a great neutral move to hit a lot of switchins with). he is ment to hit the opponent first NOT try and prevent their set up. the Taunt build is something to consider but not my first choice for this team. If anything I would rather pick up a new lead.

Since you've also mentioned Gyarados as a potentially difficult threat to handle, I'd like to suggest trying out a Celebi over Gengar's spot. Good luck with your team!
Cool suggestion, I'll try this out tonight HOWEVER it may be to much of a bulk based Pokemon and not enough in the way of offense, this is a HO based team so everything in it must be an immediate threat capable of sweeping. If i drop gar for a different poke i think the best bet is a scarfed RK'er.
Thanks so far for all the suggestions and comments. Please keep them coming!
