Another gimmick shown off in Pocket's match v. Earthworm: Counter Rhydon. Though imo it's really more for Zapdos and its Hidden Power than it is for Snorlax since a lot of Snorlax don't even bother with EQ anymore, and those that do use Belly Drum and can OHKO after the boost anyway. I'm not the biggest fan, simply because Curse lets it act as a dependable check to Snorlax instead of relying on Snorlax to play risky against it (Curse, the standard, is usually pretty good incentive for Snorlax to just get out, even with EQ, instead of staying in to let Rhydon boost its Attack). Plus Curse lets Rhydon clean up in the endgame by letting it muscle past non-Toxic Skarms.
Also, I think on that team, Dnite (which is also fairly little-used in high-level GSC play) might work better than Buzz as the mixed attacker. Granted it's slower, but it's immune to Spikes and actually has the attacking stats to do damage to pretty much any switch-in instead of relying on Screech and switching around possible CC crits to build up Spikes damage. CC not 3HKOing Lax without a crit and Raikou only being scared when it's Screech'd are major bummers. Plus, without a Ghost, Starmie's existence means that the team as it stands is hardly guaranteed to keep the Spikes that Buzz relies on so heavily. Buzz is cool, and can certainly be effective at times, but ultimately I find that there's always just better things for mixed sweeping.
EDIT: Buzz does have real nice Speed, though, and wrecks most mixed walls with a combination of being able to outspeed and its STAB Thunder - Miltank and Zapdos being prime examples. It's just that most teams either have a Curselax or a Raikou waiting in the wings, and needing to predict so much for what's often so little reward necessitates Spikes too much for such a frail Pokemon imo.
