- Ferrothorn -> Leech Seed over Protect might do you better on occasions, but Protect is probably ok too. Maybe give both a try.
- I see no good reason to not have Lum instead of Chesto. Yes, of course I know why you use Chesto instead, but you'll really appreciate it if you get frozen or get fully paralyzed for a few turns and lose. True, you don't care much for the burn, but chances are, you will be able to beat most things that can burn you regardless of berry.
Hope that helps!
The thing is, I don't have access to any egg, tutor or past generation TM moves along with perfect IVs - I'm literally just using my Pokemon White game, no RNG abuse. I managed to obtain a perfect IV Gastly from the GTS (it had a Hardy nature, so I'm fairly sure it's legitimate), so I simply bred that for a Timid Gengar with Max SpAtk/Speed. This means I don't have a perfect Hidden Power or any other moves that aren't available in Generation V. I may think about using Psychic for the Fighting types however, even if it means that it can't touch Steel/Ground types.
Again with Ferrothorn, I don't have access to egg moves so I can't use Leech Seed, I'm just using my in-game Pokemon who happen to have the max IVs I want to give Ferrothorn as much bulk as possible. Also I was lucky to get a Suicune with a max IV in Def from the GTS, I have another Quirky Suicune that I'm going to trade at the next chance I get.
I was considering Energy Ball on Gengar for Water/Grounds but in most cases I was planning to just switch to Suicune anyway, since there aren't many Water types in total that can beat Suicune one on one (Lanturn and Ludicolo being exceptions, and their STABs are resisted by Ferrothorn). Scald gets rid of the Freeze status and if there's a possibility of paralysis, switching to Ferrothorn would probably be the best choice right? Unless you mean if Ferrothorn has been taken out already - in any case, I haven't had many problems with Suicune being fully paralyzed since Sub blocks it and Rest removes it.
Thanks for the input though, it helps a lot!
