Shell Smash Omanyte
An extremely underrated Shell Smasher. The main thing I like about Omanyte is that 100 Base Defense, allowing it to set up on even neutral STAB moves. Murkrow also gives it pretty much free setup, and it doesn't fear Sucker Punch due to that high Defense. Earth Power makes it different enough from Clamperl that it actually is worth it, and the defenses and typing help out too. All in all, Omanyte is a very underrated Pokemon and definitely worth a look in this CCAT.
Also ResTalk CM Misdreavus actually loses to even non-Charge Beam Porygon most of the time, as Shadow Ball has 24 PP, meaning a critical hit will usually happen (which OHKOes or comes very close to it). Ice Beam / Blizzard variants (which suck now that Gligar is gone) can also hope for a freeze.
ResTalk CM Misdreavus
This is actually ridiculously ridiculously good, as lategame nothing is going to beat it. Getting six CMs up is really surprisingly easy, and it doesn't fear Toxic. Also, it's a fantastic sleep absorber. Even though the above paragraph is true, you should obviously play to remove Porygon.
