    Snorlax @ Leftovers
    Thick Fat
    Adamant 4/252/0/0/252/0
    - Return / Double-Edge
    - Pursuit
    - Superpower / Fire Punch
    - Ice Punch

    Another fun mon designed to fuck up Chandelure. Chandelure can't do dick to this thing, so Snorlax can easily KO it as it flees with Pursuit. STAB Return hits pretty hard, though Double-Edge is also an option if you don't care about longevity. Superpower fucks up Tyranitar and Heatran, but Fire Punch nails Genesect and Ferrothorn, so it's dependent on what your team has more trouble with. Ice Punch is for smashing Gliscor and making sure Dragonite / Garchomp don't get cocky and try to set up on you. The EV spread probably isn't optimal, idk. Either way Snorlax has some insane special bulk going for it so it's really handy against sun and rain teams.

    Tyranitar @ Choice Scarf
    Nature: Hasty / Naive
    EVs: 196 Atk / 60 SpA / 252 Spe
    -Crunch
    -Stone Edge
    -Superpower / Earthquake
    -Ice Beam

    MixScarf sounds like a bad idea at first, but Tyranitar's Speed comes in handy, and its ability to always OHKO Gliscor on the switch (or revenge kill it!) is priceless. It also does 89.4% - 106.1% to Garchomp if you're REALLY feeling ballsy and with Spikes/SR support it's going down. You're screwed with a Sand Veil miss or against Scarf, though. Naive undermines the SpD boost, so Hasty is listed first.

    Forretress (F) @ Custap Berry
    Trait: Sturdy
    EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SDef
    Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk) (Or Sassy if you're using Explosion)
    - Stealth Rock
    - Spikes
    - Rapid Spin
    - Volt Switch / Explosion

    This thing is meant to be played as a suicide lead, rather similar to Deoxys-S. Custap Berry + Sturdy make for an interesting combo, which usually allows Forretress to get up Stealth Rock and a layer of Spikes. Admittedly, Deoxys-S is probably better for this job, but Forretress is cool if you really want Rapid Spin ore if you're using Deoxys-S as an attacker already. Volt Switch provides momentum (although it's likely it won't get to use it), while Explosion is something that I just thought of; however, it can be useful for taking out a troublesome mon in a pinch. The ev spread is kinda irrelevant, but a SpD spread lets you take weaker special moves and absorb Draco Meteors I guess.

    Exeggutor @ Life Orb
    Trait: Clorophyll
    EV's: 252 Atk/208 Spe/48 Hp
    Adamant Nature

    -Swords Dance
    -Wood Hammer/Seed Bomb
    -Zen Headbutt
    -Nature Power/Low Kick

    Exeggutor has incredible special attack, but his respectable base 95 attack stat should not be ignored. With clorophyll, a physical set suits him well. Wood hammer and zen headbutt are your main stab attacks, and destroy anything that doesn't resist them. However, seed bomb can be used in place of wood hammer if the recoil bothers you. Nature Power hits steel and fire types hard, but low kick is also worth considering if pokemon such as ferrothorn, hydreigon, and tyranitar are causing you problems.

    (If my math is correct) The given speed EV's put exeggutor at 396 speed in the sun, allowing you to outpace the fastest pokemon in OU, jolteon. You obviously want to maximize his attack so 252 attack EV's is a must. The remaining EV's should be put into HP to make him a little bit bulkier.

    Bulky psychic types will cause problems for this set. Celebi, latias, and latios resist every move that exeggutor commonly carries. For this reason, it is advised to pair him with a strong u-turn user, such as scizor. Skarmory also doesn't really mind any of the moves exeggutor has in it's arsenal. Pokemon such as heatran and magnezone are useful partners for exeggutor as they will make short work of skarmory. Like most pokemon, exeggutor needs support in order to do well, but when played correctly, he can destroy unprepared teams.

    Starmie @ Leftovers / Life Orb
    Trait: Natural Cure
    EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
    Timid Nature
    - Psychic / Psyshock
    - Ice Beam / Thunderbolt
    - Hidden Power Fire
    - Rapid Spin

    At first glance, this variant of Starmie may seem odd, as it does not carry a Water-type move, which is one of its STABs. However, this Starmie is meant to be used on a sun team. I've discovered this set while searching for a good sun spinner, and Starmie fits the job perfectly. It is fast, decently powerful, resists Water-type moves, and has an excellent movepool. Psychic absolutely destroys Breloom, Keldeo, and any other Fighting-type, Ice Beam hits Dragon-types, particularly Dragonite and Garchomp, both of which are extremely common in the Dream World metagame. Hidden Power Fire is the kicker here - it hits Ferrothorn and Genesect for 4x effective damage, usually 2HKOing the former and OHKOing the latter. If used in a sun team, it will likely OHKO regardless. I absolutely love using this set, as it destroys conventional counters, and doesn't require one to resort to switching to their Fire-type such as Volcarona or Blaziken in order to deal with Ferrothorn, just to get paralyzed. Try it out, no?
