You're completely weak to sub sweepers like musharna. Completely. You have 2 psychic checks, pinsir and sucker punch, but sucker punch isn't going to get rid of Musharna, and while megahorn could, some sweepers might give it a burn so it doesn't KO it (lampent stopping stone edge for instance) so I suggest being able to combat psychic types better, possibly with shadow ball/ ominous wind/ hex on Rotom freeze!
The fact that Snover is on WhiteDMist's team means that it's a hail team. He's not just going to put 6 ice-types on a team and call it a day; that causes some very limited coverage and synergy issues and can't deal with a lot of threats to hail.
Disregarding the fact that Musharna will never use Substitute anyway, it's not a threat to his team because not only does he have Pinsir to kill it, Hail negates its Moonlight recovery to only 1/4 HP. The scenario you mentioned doesn't make sense because Lampent is slower than Pinsir (and even things that could burn it like SubWisp Gardevoir are stopped cold by Lum Berry). An extra ghost move on Rotom-Frost isn't a fantastic idea because STAB Blizzard outdamages even a super effective Shadow Ball.
Excellent team WhiteDMist. Luvdisc'd =)
