If Yanmega hacks them with Hypnosis/Air Slash they can't attack it. and none of those things can easily swap IN on Yanmega. Some Yanmega carry Substitute instead of detect too. So that stops all status moves. after 1 turn Yanmega outspeeds Scarf Moltres, and it's usually so obvious when the opponent is going to use Stealth Rocks. Just swap in when they use it.
