Lately, I've bveen using a pretty decent team based around Sweet Jesus' Specially Defensive Gothorita along with a slew of powerful physical attackers. While it doesn't exactly take Gothitelle's place in the tier, it does have more overall bulk. Reflect is such a nice utility to wall several physical attackers with, especially the likes of Gurdurr and Sawk. But the main utility of Gothorita has been to remove almost all the physical walls of the tier.
I've also been using Agent Dell's brainchild of SD Spiking Cacturne with Dark Gem. This set allows Cacturne to either set up Spikes or SD when opportunity knocks, while still having a powerful Sucker Punch that OHKOs Cinccino and even Standard Skuntank after a boost and Rocks.
In a similar boat, I've been using a Shell Smash SR Carracosta to decent effect. I set up Rocks first usually, but if I set up a Shell Smash then I can set Rocks up almost any time I choose. The only problem is giving up Waterfall for Aqua Jet, but priority is hard to ignore.
I'll also ask a question to everybody: Do you guys feel that Ice types are still anti-meta, or has the recent influx of Ice types make them common enough to be a meta threat? We've seen a rise in Regice, Articuno, Piloswine, Rotom-F, and other Ice types. Is it worth preparing for Ice types, or should you just count yourself blessed if you happen to have an Ice check/counter on your team?
