Thanks again for the replies guys.
@NoJohns - You bring up a very valid point about Toxic being able to hit most of the switchins I don't like and prevent them from abusing me. However, I'm not going to drop VC for it for two reasons: 1, that I can typically VC after setting hazards on the switch if something something comes in that my team can handle after a boost, for instance getting Tales or the frail Sawsbuck in safely. If there's something extremely threatening then I can simply VC off the bat (against Magnezone etc) to escape and deal with it. 2, that getting Tales in unharmed is very valuable even when running Rest. I will however try out Toxic over Spikes, since I don't always get a chance to use them and as you point out it has a lot of utility.
Sawsbuck I'm not too keen on the CB simply because he's so fast he likes very much to be switching moves around, and can heal off recoil from LO with Wood Horn. Aromatherapy is also gonna be restricted by a CB, sadly.
@Dezza Laa - Since I play in Wifi/OU I don't have to worry about Shadow Tag Chandelure XD.
You are right, I don't have a rock resist which is a pain. However, I often find that the number of Rock attacks hitting my team are few and far between, given that their main abuser TTar also carries Ice Beam to hit my very threatening Grass-Types, so I don't usually have to cope with them (especially if I can burn TTar).
Arcanine really needs the raw power to deal with threats like Reuniclus, Heatran, Latios and Blaziken who otherwise give my team pretty massive problems. I'd love some more bulk but I really cannot spare it with the role he plays for me, especially now he may be using Intimidate over FF.
EQ unfortunately nets me poorer coverage and less powerful hits than SB does, which is why I let the rest of my team deal with Tran and Chandy so he can pull off a sweep. I tried EQ for a very long time and it just seems much less useful than SB, especially with Balloon around.
@Jaroda - Haha no worries, I'll give Landorus a whirl when I get the chance, I'm thinking of a Sub set atm, and if that doesn't work I'll try out RP.
@Alphatron & Jaroda - When I'm not using Landorus instead of Tran/Cress I'll certainly try Intimidate, thanks for backing up my thoughts.
