The reason I picked Shaymin is because of it's strong seed flare with the added bonus of doing 2X damage the next time (80% chance of -2 special defense drop) and its 60% flinch rate with air slash. In addition, with its blazing fast speed 127 base speed it makes a great sub seeder. I've considered thunderous in the past, but after taunting walls or t-waving something thunderous can't dish out much damage without a nasty plot boost and tends to get killed the instant they decide to attack. With the concern about weather sweepers, Giratina O can usually tank a hit and KO back, those that I can't wall with Giratina O (i.e omastar) I can revenge with my terrikion (provided they don't have swift swim in conjunction with a shell smash)
