No I'm not "indulging you ad hominem". And I'm not gonna bother nominate every single Magic Coat user. You want a good answer to Deoxys-D using Magic Coat that fit on many teams ? Quick example, use Jirachi. Usually in a SpD set you have a remaining slot, so go for Wish/BodySlam/IronHead/MagicCoat. It can even be useful to not let annoying staller like Ferrothorn put their hazards, or to not let Rotom-W burn your Achi.. something like that. Overall, it HAS surprise power and can be useful in almost any situation. I don't see why you want status and set-up.. to set-up on Deoxys-D? Once again, why in the world would you use a slot just for this specific situation. "Yes there is a Deoxys-D I can finally set-up !" There are many good pokemons that can set-up on Deoxys-D. For instance, I start Deoxys-D and there is a Terrakion against me.. I'll assume it's a Lead set and Magic Coat because I'm afraid of the taunt. He did substitute and he SD the next turn while I realise that I'll probably have to sac almost half my team.
