Allow me to elaborate (your post was sure a good cue for the post I've been sitting on for a while).
Yeah I've found that Scizor works quite well as a back-up, since it deals with most of the Psychic/Ghost types nicely (I have to watch out for things like Chandelure though). I'm also running leftovers but I don't have a Scizor with Roost yet (I'm too lazy to get one now and I'll probably just wait until Black and White 2 come out to see if Roost is made into a move tutor). Still using Superpower. I rarely use it and something like Substitute is probably better but I don't want to delete Superpower only to regret it later (again, maybe it'll be made into a move tutor in Black and White 2).
I tried Hydreigon as a fellow back-up but I didn't like it much. It wasn't bad since the type coverage it offers is excellent, but pairing a fire weak pokemon with a fighting weak pokemon is just asking for Infernape and Blaziken (and anything with fire/fighting coverage really) to stomp all over you. Honestly, Hydreigon has a terrible set of weaknesses anyway which is why I tend to avoid it, at least in singles.
So now I'm using Dragonite again lol.
EDIT: Just hit 70 wins with Sawk/Dragonite/Scizor, so looks like I have another team to write up! Let's see how far I can take this. Hating how the opponent keeps throwing Gyarados as a lead (4 times now), this team hates those...
