Shifting topics again, I'm going to take the opportunity to promote one of the best sets in the tier at the moment, both before and I believe also after drop of Hail. Calm Mind RestTalk (abbreviated as CroTomb) Spiritomb holds claim to being one of only two foolproof Cresselia counters I have come across (the other being RestTalk Escavalier). Spiritomb boasts remarkable bulk, allowing it to begin to set of on the majority of physical attackers one will face, as well as any special attacker lacking a behemoth attacking stat. Once it accruse two Calm Minds, even things such as Life Orb Moltres and Magmortar begin to struggle to break it. Most importantly, it has no shortage of opportunity to come in and begin setting up when Cresselia arrives, putting Pressure (hehe) on the opposing team, particularly given its lack of status vulnerability.
Going to second Texas on Crotomb, i saw him talking about it on irc a few weeks ago and decided "hey, why not build a team around this nigga, he seems like a pretty awesome mon". I built a semistall team that revolved on using Spiritomb as a glue for the popular Cresselia+Poliwrath core that had been running around at the time. While the team itself had some holes i never bothered patching up (bs no wish or heal bell), it was a really fun team to use and the combination of Crotomb and Calm Mind Cresselia was often too much for my opponent to handle. Spiritomb was perfectly capable of setting up on various Pokemon such as slowking, lanturn, clefable, poliwrath, cresselia, and even some gallade for god's sake. Spiritomb's typing really came in handy and made it much easier to consistently get up to +6 during battle, Ghost/Dark left Spiritomb with 3 good immunities as well as no weakness for my opponent to prey on to stop me from setting up. While Crotomb does need some team support to cover its weaknesses (powerful Steel-types like Aggron, Escavalier, and Klinklang, as well as Haze Cryogonal are good examples of things you need to cover when running crotomb), it still fits into most defensive teams pretty well, covering a wide variety of threats and giving the team a way to set up a sweep with Calm Mind, use it more guys!
