Honestly, I think Infernape is the better partner. It takes the same hazards damage and its ability doesn't give a visual cue, and both also take damage from Sandstorm and Hail. The two also have some moves in common, such as Nasty Plot and Focus Blast. Both can also run a Swords Dance set.
i doubt so. Haxorus can still use Rivalry, thus when they don't see Mold Breaker 99% of all players will assume its Rivalry. Come on, who will predict that the Haxorus without MB is Zoroark? Zoroark isn't used at all in the metagame, the only people who have a small chance of catching on are those who have a Zoroark and know how to use it. Anyway, its not like Gliscor/Skarm can threaten Zoroark anyway
