I feel that paralysis support could be important for your team. Running Stun Spore > Toxic on Amoonguss would be the easiest way to include this support.
Hi Jimbon. Thank you for the feedback.
I tried running your suggestion, and it netted me a win against a Tornadus-T rain team rather comfortably. Oh the joy when Tornadus was all alone and could do nothing but to eat my outrage. Muahahaha.
Stun Spore on Amoonguss is awesome.
Specially defensive Heatran checks more things now, and has a lot more room to lay down SR; but I still feel his contribution to be lacking. Not having access to recovery kinda sucks. I wonder if running protect over roar is a good idea?
Dragon wise, Forry can barely take a Draco Meteor from Latios, and can only 3HKO Dragonite at full health. So that's something I have to look out for.

I think Specially Defensive Jirachi would go very well on your team in the place of Heatran, since Sun teams can be dealt with by Dragonite and Salamence very well, and it resists Stone Edge.
Ah a self advocator. Nice.
You are right about the stone problem, though.
To be honest, I find sun teams to be more and more tricky to deal with thanks to the omni-present Venusaur. It's hard because I almost have to sacrifice a pokemon to find out what set it's running - put in a pokemon to get sleep powdered, or risk being setup fodder? Heatran is my only check against V-dawg once it sets up since it outspeeds Salamence.
While Jirachi may solve my rock problems (which I haven't found to be much of a hassle yet), it means I will get absolutely destroyed by Venusaur under the sun. Thoughts?
