On the topic of Scolipede and Hitmonchan, I wouldn't really call it a balanced trade. As others have said, Hitmonchan is likely not spinning against Ghosts without Foresight, and it is not much better than the spinners we have now anyways. I think SmashKoal would be more effective to better deal with Spikers such as Scolipede and Garbodor, along with the fact that it can bust through more Ghost-Types after the boost. Scolipede, however, would be a very powerful Spiker. It's very fast, and thus could guarantee a few layers of Spikes with a suicide lead set. SD sets would also be pretty powerful imo since they could take advantage of its great Speed and good coverage to rip through teams. As EBeast's calcs show it's extremely powerful with minimal hazards support. I'm not sure how good a BP set would be, if only because I think the frail nature of most sweepers in NU would make it difficult to get one in safely consistently. I think it'd be better off trying to sweep on its own. It's already capable of doing it anyways, so BPing seems sorta unnecessary.
