    After two years of RBY and GSC I have decided to make a comeback in RSE. I played it 2 years ago, but I used to play without any sense / strategy and without understanding the meta; I just knew basic pokemon, enough to win more than half of the battles with some prediction though, but nothing more, so I know I can't (shouldn't) use my past RSE knowledge now.

    As far as I read here, I have here the list of main threats but I don't actually know if I'm missing something important.

    Ttar - Celebi / Swampert (+ Claydol) [depending on the set]
    Flygon - Celebi / Swampert (+ Claydol) [depending on the set]
    Gengar - Dusclops
    Jirachi - Swampert / Blissey / Claydol [depending on the set]
    Aerodactyl - Swampert + Skarmory
    Metagross - Swampert + Skarmory
    Mence - Swampert / Skarm / Claydol / Dusclops [depending on the set]
    Heracross - Skarmory + Dusclops [prediction]
    Zapdos - Celebi / Swampert + Blissey
    Snorlax / Slaking / other CBNormals - Skarmory (+ Dusclops / Celebi etc [depending on the set]). With Maggy support prediction with Dusclops (is there a reasonable way to avoid Maggy?)
    Gyarados - Skarm / Dusclops [depending on the set]

    Yeah CalmCune. Also I don't know if there are some other threats for which a secondary phazer like Swampert is needed. Thoughts?

    Also, going to Battle of the Week's team, variations to play with? (like Gengar / Jirachi etc).

    jynx wins
    but also swordcross with a decent support, and for a stall team aren't good things :(

    international mg is anyway as this team, or very similiar, other variantas are sdnacepassbi+dactyl/meta or cbmence + ttar+ cune... (and dugtrio/magneton are in 100% of teams)

    is noious :(

    your team would have to fight an uphill battle against the very common tss team. zapdos stalls you forever, that celebi set is weak. i don't think this kind of team is worth using anymore, it went out of style in 2006.
