You're right about the Gengar scenario, I should have noticed that myself really. I'll try having a life orb instead of leftovers, and then experiment with the ghost gem also. I wonder if a fighting gem for the surprise focus blast would be useful...
And as for Blaziken, once again, you may be right. I've used Blaziken in singles and it has always done me well, but in VGC it might not fit, as you said. But Infernape isn't much of an option either in my opinion due to how frail it is - What about Lucario? (Both are frail, but Lucario might be a better choice due better attack? Also, I could get the +4 Beat Up boost due to Justified, but that would require me removing ANOTHER pokemon. Then again Infernape is faster)
A mixed set Blaziken actually sounds quite interesting - I'll try that out before I get rid of Blaziken entirely. If I get rid of Blaziken, I could go back to Thundurus. Perhaps I could teach Trick Room to Porygon2 like you suggested, but then what do I get rid of, Ice Beam or Thunderbolt? Either one makes me unable to counter one more pokemon, but to be fair Porygon2 is more support then anything else.
Another thought, What if I replaced Staraptor with a leftovers drizzle Politoed? I've tried it a few times and it seems to work, but what's your thoughts? It's mainly to counter sand teams.
