Someone tried to use Specs Zekrom with moveset Bolt Strike/Draco Meteor/Thunder/Focus Blast ? Because when I checked calcs, it looks surprisingly strong.

If I missed any important target to calculate, mention them and I'll edit this post ;). In other words STAB Thunder (and Focus Blast) allows Specs Zekrom to go through specially defensive steel walls (and bait physical ones), which other special based dragons struggle to beat. The only almost 100% counters to Specs Zekrom are Chansey and Specially Defensive Rock Arceus. If you add in Spikes (at least one layer) the number of counters drops to one, which is Rock Arceus. Well at least for me this looks promising ;).
