Fill in the blanks?

I'm thinking CM offensive w/ LO will be the prevalent set, as rock/fire/grass is a very nice type combination and CM is a decent boost that also boosts its nice spdef, which is even nicer in SS. I might try some sets out later, and I suggest Paleo Wave over Ancient Beam

[SET]
name: Metal Sound
move 1: Metal Sound
move 2: Ancientpower
move 3: Flamethrower
move 4: Vacuum Wave / Hidden Power Fighting
item: Life Orb
nature: Timid
ability: Technician
evs: 252 SpA / 6 HP / 252 Spe

[SET COMMENTS]
The Metal Sound set is designed to force switches on special walls that come in and deal immense damage. Vacuum Wave provides priority and does 66-71% damage. Hidden Power Fighting is a guarenteed 2HKO on Blissey. Flamethrower provides coverage, and Ancientpower stat boosts will never be frowned upon.

[SET]
name: Tech Specs
move 1: Ancientpower
move 2: Flamethrower / Fire Blast
move 3: Air Cutter
move 4: Giga Drain
item: Choice Specs
nature: Modest
Ability: Technician
evs: 252 SpA / 6 SpD / 252 Spe

[SET COMMENTS]
The Technician Choice Specs set utilizes different coverage options that other sets. Specifically, it can OHKO Hippowdon guaranteed with Stealth Rock down using Giga Drain while regaining huge amounts of health. Air Cutter OHKOs Revenankh and other fighters, Flamethrower is more consistent, but only Fire Blast OHKOs Bronzong.

If you're going to start making a set at least finish it. I'm going to delete stuff that is obviously half-assed.

[SET]
name: Standard
move 1: Calm Mind
move 2: Ancient Beam
move 3: Earth Power / Focus Blast
move 4: Flamethrower / Ice Beam
item: Life Orb
ability: Levitate
nature: Timid
evs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe

[SET COMMENTS]
Utilizing <guy>'s copious Special Attack and Speed, this set focuses on sweeping the opponent's team once his/her special wall is gone.

As <guy>'s most reliable STAB move, after a Calm Mind, Ancient Beam will wreak anything that does not resist Rock. Earth Power is used to fill in the gaps, hitting non-Levitating Steel-types for super effective damage. Flamethrower is <guy>'s best option against Scizor, who threatens with STAB Bullet Punch off an excellent attack stat. Focus Blast hits Steels as well, though its shaky accuracy is doubtful considering <guy>'s less than stellar defenses. Ice Beam can be used over Flamethrower to hit Ground-types that resist Rock. Though it also hits the flying Dragons, Ice Beam is not necessary to hit them, as they are already covered by Ancient Beam.

This is kind of a mess. I'll make a new thread similar to the full-revamp threads in C&C.
