It still KOes things like Scizor, Genesect and Terrakion but even in Rain, Aqua Tail hardly achieve a 2HKO on Gliscor any longer.
That EV spread is terribly inefficient. What is this supposed to outspeed? Jolly Breloom right?
Go 280 for Adamant Luke, Timid Heatran, +Smeargle, Jolly Breloom, etc.
EVs 101.. Any defensive set Maxes HP first. Jolly nature is best here, because speed is a higher base stat than defense on Garchomp. Your current spread is 401 HP / 314 Def / 263 Speed. Change the EVs to 252 HP / 196 Def / 60 Spe, Jolly.
Now you have 420 HP / 275 Def / 280 Speed.. Probably take physical hits much the same, special hits better.. and outspeed a few more things.
