also, gene just ensures you're weak to them. most teams have to have a check for venu if HO
unless you're reffering to timid, which is seldom used, but admittingly effective '-'
I said +Spd, so, mainly Timid.
Ok, I forgot to answer this:

this being said, i have not tried sdef meloetta in OU, so it's all theory
She has almost to use Perish Song to defeat it or CM by itself and even in this case CM Psyshock which never uses it defeats her, but the most important, CM Reuniclus is pretty rare since a very time ago. That shouldn't exclude that it's a threat, but it's preferrable to cover common threats than pretty rarer ones. Anyways CM Reuniclus has a hard time against offensive teams with the absourdly huge power these days. Only stall should be worried about it and not that much since I said, it's pretty rare.
