    Typical stall team with Skarmory (and Wallceus to a lesser extent) forces SubCM Ghostceus out.
    - Chansey switches into Ghostceus either CMing or Subbing.
    - Chansey Wishes while Ghostceus CMs again or Subs.
    - Skarmory switches in, gets healed to full HP. If no rocks are up, he is guaranteed to survive, if not well I think a +2 FB can OHKO but even then it can miss.
    - Ghostceus attacks, Skarmory survives with 1 HP and Whirlwinds away.

    Surely is not a 100% method against it but I've seen it happening

    If something faster than Skarmory gets blown in, Skarmory will be gone for the match, allowing Ghostceus to setup later.
