Thanks for the support! Trick Room isn't really an issue for me because priority Encore will ensure that that pokemon will only get to use Trick Room, and it will be a relatively easy decision for Heatran to decide to attack either or both pokes or just switch out, knowing that on Turn 3 the speed will be back to normal.
Flash Fire is a tad annoying but only when you can't really be sure a foe poke has it, and even then they usually can't even threaten Heatran at all. Some even use fire moves on it directly or by default (e.g. Chandy4, which has Heat Wave) which makes the battle easier for Heatran anyway. Sturdy can also be annoying but with Whimsicott's Endeavor it's manageable, especially since a lot of Sturdy pokes like to use Curse or Sandstorm first turn, or EQ which is equally exploitable.
It's all really a testament to Whimsy's ridiculous movepool that I can actually be happy with my Tailwind/Fake Tears/Encore/Endeavor set. Tailwind's a lock, Fake Tears is really the best way to support Heatran's goal of pissing on stuff with Eruption outside of Endeavor which has just as much utility if not more as it's an actual attack, one that works so well with a Focus Sash that was already strongly recommended without Endeavor. And Encore completely handcuffs pokes I can't kill easily or don't want to anyway, like DD Gyarados or Curse Swampert. With Togekiss, and the fact that Whimsy does die fairly often, Flash Fire and Sturdy are virtual non issues due to what I'd said about foes actually liking to take Hyper Voice/Eruption, even if they're rock types. I do still look for ways my team could be better but it doesn't seem like any changes would be on Whimsicott.
You're welcome but in the end .... there is the fact that Whimsicott is in my oppinion UBER in the Subway because of Prankster and the infamous movesets....dang! I totally forgot that Whimsicott is able to learn Sunny Day too xD That move is actually a really important move in my oppinion:
1.Water attacks lowers the strange
2.Other Weather pokes are really bad like Abomasnow with Frosslass and their SnowCloak which really sucks >.< and their 100% Blizzard would hurt much if you only have Togekiss and Latios left but if you have SunnyDay up ...maybe the Blizzard won't hit your pokes and the win is yours without much hax after that
3. Boosts the FireAttacks (Mainly for Eruption)
4. Against Sandstream/SnowWarning which would make your Sash useless...
There are too many options so ... I leave it with that :)
