    Cloyster (M) @ Leftovers
    - Rapid Spin
    - Rest
    - Spikes
    - Surf

    Pretty boring Spiker/Spinner.

    Suicune @ Leftovers
    - Rest
    - Roar
    - Surf
    - Toxic

    Yawn, I used to use atmacune for fun over this though Curse, Return, Rest, Roar :-o.

    Raikou @ Leftovers
    - Crunch
    - Rest
    - Sleep Talk
    - Thunderbolt

    Raikou is a pretty sturdy wall in gsc, This Helps my Tena weakness...

    Misdreavus (F) @ Leftovers
    - Attract
    - Mean Look
    - Perish Song
    - Protect

    Attract Misdreavus is so cool, being able to kill Rhydon and Skarmory is pretty cool with a little luck. Even through Roar Raikou, and Suicune lol at it it's pretty decent.

    Skarmory (M) @ Leftovers
    - Drill Peck
    - Rest
    - Toxic
    - Whirlwind

    Meh I'm thinking of using Sand Attack over Toxic, any thoughts?

    Snorlax (M) @ Leftovers
    - Belly Drum
    - Double-Edge
    - Earthquake
    - Rest

    Maybe you know this guy. I should probably use Curse > Belly Drum since I lack a Beller. Meh.

    This team is pretty boring but it has a very big Kangaskhan + Houndoom weakness. Also End-Game Curselax + Houndoom [Or any other Pursuiters] beat this team badly thus I'm thinking of using Sand Attack on Skarmory to help Both problems but Toxic is very useful.

    I think you have too many Resters without a Heal Beller tbh....I'd rather have a Fighting resist somewhere...if only Celebi was legal...but I think Misdreavus is too flail for the team...It also seems to be like a half stall team half nothing else team so I'd add in like Tenta over Cune or go back to Atmacune or something.

    I'd take Sand-Attack as you said, and use Return on Snorlax. Recoil is more often your demise than an 18 base power difference.

    Well I could always use Zapdos over Raikou for my fighting problem [and my nidoking weak] but then I'll be vulnerable to Gengar.
    Ok, I'm going to use Sand Attack then, Double Edge ohkoes Suicune, and 2hkoes Skarmory on the switch unlike Return which only 3hkoes it.

    Then that's a whole different team considering Lax is his main actual hitting offense!

    Thief will work alot better than sand-attack with switching and is probably a better choice, as if it lands on kanga, at least you can wither its hp down easier.

    Basically, but I thought he uses Blissey over Snorlax.
    I'll try using Thief over Toxic then. Any more suggestions?

    Yeah... Houdoom and Pursuiters in general [Tyranitar, and Umbreon] screw this team over meh... Maybe I should use Zapdos over Raikou just for it, but as stated before I'll lose protect vs Gengar. Thanks for the posts guys :jump:

    Yeah I still have Snorlax to counter it but Raikou's the best counter for Gengar; It can also screw me over it uses Hypnosis on Snorlax. Nidoking also might give me problems as stated before I'll Try using Zapdos over Raikou then just to see how it works.
