Okay first of all, before you go -______- at Judgment Steel, let's remember that no Pokemon are immune to it and with STAB and Plate boost, it can still dent stuff even when resisted. Steel Judgment is also his strongest option vs Wobbuffet and Mewtwo, and a neutral hit is almost as powerful as an SE Ice Beam. Oh and it hits Tyranitar SE =)
Roar allows it to run over other Calm Minders and Bulk Up Dialga, and helps it scout for potential threats. Along the lines of that, it abuses entry hazards and can really cause a mess before it finally finds an opening to sweep with Calm Mind and Judgment Steel. Being immune to Toxic helps it immensely as well, and being a Steel type and having access to Recover grant it many, many opportunities to come in.
I've used this set and it's a great counter to Lati@s. A +1 Dragon Pulse won't do much and you can just set up with them and force them out once you have enough boosts. Steel is resisted by a lot, but at +6 it will easily OHKO things that resist it. It's a much better counter to things like Lati@s, Shaymin-S, and Darkrai (provided it's slept something already) than Scizor.
My Trick Room team peaked at 6th out of 2668
in the Wi-Fi ladder on Pokemon Online.
