Also, you pretty much have to run a Mamoswine or a faster scarfer, lest you get swept by Ditto. What are some other good partners for Mence?
Salamence is my personal favorite user of choice scarf, if you aren't having success with it then you are using it wrong. Usually I bring him in when he's the last member of my team, at that point hopefully everyone on the opposing team is within OHKO range, which isn't hard once Moxie starts building up. The only problem is Mamoswine, steels aren't a problem that late in a battle, he shouldn't be brought out until everyone is hurting, or too dragon claw another outrage locked dragon that you outspeed.
