Current Ladder Standing on Pokemon Showdown!: 1867
I would also like to say that stall works much better higher up on the ladder than it does lower. High ranking players use the best strategies, and a smart player can counter all of those strategies. It is impossible to stop all the bad offensive threats, but it is feasible to stop all the relevant threats.
Okay, so currently I'm working with a team of Skarmory, Chansey, Sabelye, Politoed, Tentacruel, and Jirachi.
ALL of these Pokemon are defensive. I've gone 10-1 on Showdown so far. Some notes:
Sabelye is very good as a spinblocker. I find Substitute works well to scout peoples moves and count as a pseudo-protect
Starmie + Terrakion + Breloom + Hazards is absolutely brutal. I need all 6 of my Pokemon except for Politoed against them. I lost when I did because Sabelye got slept early, so I was unable to get a burn on their SD Terrakion -- clean sweep. It's also easy to wear Skarmory down, since I have to run shed shell, otherwise Magnezone + Haxorus/Moximence takes an enormous crap all over my team.
Thinking of switching to ScarfToed just to revenge kill stuff. However, I would still need him to have Perish Song.
Vaporeon is almost unbeatable. Any thoughts on how to get past him?
