Here it is. Sorry for the format, I will fix it if anyone says it's horrible to read >_>
I've made some offensive calcs, should I send them to you too?
The Sp. Attack may be a little low, but that's needed if you want to stop the fiery monkey. Its set is:
EVs: 252 Attack / 96 Sp. Attack / 160 Speed
Stats: 329 Attack / 288 Sp. Attack / 347 Speed
~ Bug Buzz/Hidden Power [Fire]/Discharge
The Speed is needed to beat the damn monkey. Megahorn and Blizzard are here for the STAB, Earthquake is for the Steels and Infernape. Bug Buzz comes here for... Well, because I don't know how will be its movepool. Discharge is specially for Gyarados (although, as I've just said, I'm not sure about the movepool), and HP Fire is for Scizor and Forretress.
It can survive a Band'ed Earthquake from Garchomp, taking 64-76% damage. Not good enough, due to SR weakness. So, this guy is going to be either a lead, or something which will need a huge Rapid Spin support. But at least Blissey is a goner.
Aerodactyl is faster and has Rock Throw. Don't even try.
A 252 HP/0 Defense Metagross (Bander) takes 40-46% damage of Megahorn, while a 152 HP (Agility) takes 42-50%.
The least damage Tyranitar he takes from Megahorn is 61-72%, when Impish, max HP/max Defense.
104 HP (Double Status) Gengar takes 70-82% from Blizzard. Strange...
Infernape falls to Earthquake. You just need to be faster (you are.) and come in a Nasty Plot. Or let it switch in on you.
Max/max Bold Suicune takes 29-35% from Megahorn.
Ninjask MAY survive an Ice Shard (lol), but it needs at least 28 HP EVs. Ok, not that much.
Lucario is 2HKO'ed by Earthquake, if it's the Bulky Dancer version. Otherwise, it's an OHKO.
Steelix is 2HKO'ed by Blizzard (53-62%), so fuck this snake.
Bulky Gyarados takes 72-85% of Discharge. If we won't give it to him, then we have a Gyara weak, which can be resolved on the topic that will be created for its movepool.
Heracross, Togekiss, Claydol, Porygon-Z, Machamp, Jolteon, Shaymin, Cradily, Slaking, Snorlax, Skarmory, Porygon2, Lanturn and Scrappy Miltank are 2HKO'ed either by Blizzard or Megahorn.
Raikou may be a problem (38-45% on the Sleep Talker, 43-50% on the Calm Minder), along with Starmie (it's OHKO'ed, but may be faster than this EV spread I gave to the Ice/Bug pokémon).
Hariyama takes 40-47% with 76 HP/252 Defense, Impish from Megahorn. Blizzard would be a good option, but there's always the risk of facing a Hariyama with Thick Fat.
Calm Zapdos is the only version this pokémon needs to be aware of (takes 66-78% from Blizzard). The other ones... Heh. OHKO.
Swampert is on the verge of a 2HKO most of the time. You need to discover its Nature and EV spread to 2HKO him properly.
Scizor needs 140 EVs in HP to survive HP Fire. The problem is, the Support, Baton Passer and Dancer Orb all have more than just 140 EVs...
The standard Forretress dies to HP Fire, while the "No Magnezone Fear" set survives with ONE HP. Bitch.
Dusknoir is a bitch, taking only 35-40% from Blizzard.
Bold 216 HP/252 Defense Slowbro takes 75-88% from Bug Buzz, and 64-75% from Megahorn.
Careful max HP/max Defense Regirock takes 32-37% damage from Blizzard, and has Rock Throw. WATCH OUT!
Heatran might survive an Earthquake... With a huge EV investment on HP and Defense. So, it's an OHKO.
If you don't have Earthquake (please...), Heatran stops the Ice/Bug guy completely.
Max/max Bold Cresselia has a, huh, <1% chance to survive two Megahorns. Die, bitch.
Calm max HP/max Sp. Defense Regice takes 40-46% from Megahorn. And has Thunder Wave.
Max HP/max Defense neutral Registeel takes 33-39% damage from Earthquake, and has Thunder Wave/Toxic. Now THAT'S a problem.
The Standard Jirachi (Impish, 240 HP/76 Defense) takes 43-50% damage from Earthquake. And it has Reflect and Wish... At least he isn't faster.
Max HP/max Defense neutral Empoleon takes 45-53% from Earthquake, while a 252 HP/0 Defense (which is much more common) version takes 58-68% damage.
Careful 252 HP/112 Sp. Defense Spiritomb is is 2HKO'ed by even Blizzard (56-66% damage).
Hippowdon is OHKO'ed by Blizzard if it doesn't have any EVs on the Sp. Defense. Otherwise, we have a 2HKO.
Uxie and Mesprit go down to Megahorn. Pretty simple.
Max HP/Max Defense Bold Milotic takes 39-45% from Megahorn. On the verge?
252 HP/98 (Sp.) Defense, + Nature Bronzong takes 27-31% from Bug Buzz, and 40-47% from Megahorn... Ok, I think we have a counter.
The truth is, if you give it either a Specs or a Nasty Plot/Calm Mind, Compoundeyes and Blizzard, you're set for the majority of the Standard metagame.
