    Yay it's that stupid ice thing nobody likes
    ...
    I like it

    Regice

    [Overview]

    - Super-high Special Defense
    -Good Defense and Special Attack
    -Decent movepool
    -Cursed by Ice-typing
    -Many prominent Pokemon wreck it (Sawk, Magmortar, etc)

    [Set 1]

    name: Never Melt Ice
    move 1: Ice Beam
    move 2: Thunderbolt
    move 3: Rest
    move 4: Sleep Talk / Toxic / Seismic Toss
    item: Leftovers
    ability: Clear Body
    nature: Bold
    evs: 248 HP / 184 Def / 76 SpD

    [Set Comments]

    - Huge Special Defense requires little investment
    - High enough uninvested SpA to make it pack a punch
    - RestTalk is it's best option for staying alive
    - Rapid Spin support is a must
    - EVs give it the best physical bulk while also having an easier time standing up to Fire-types

    [Additional Comments]

    - Thunder Wave is an option to slow down foes that Regice (or it's teammates) can capitalize on

    [Set 2]
    name: Charge Beam
    move 1: Charge Beam
    move 2: Ice Beam
    move 3: Focus Blast
    move 4: Toxic / Thunderbolt
    item: Leftovers
    ability: Clear Body
    nature: Modest
    evs: 248 HP / 8 Def / 252 SpA

    [Set Comments]

    - Bulky enough with Max HP and uninvested SpD
    - Max SpA gives it good starting power
    - After a couple of Charge Beams, it gets very powerful
    - Requires a ton of team support to be effective

    [Additional Comments]

    - Can use Hidden Power Fighting if Focus Blast's accuracy is not preferred
    - Life Orb is an option, but it's usually better to keep Regice healthy

    [Other Options]

    - Choice Specs set is possible, but outclassed
    - Amnesia can further boost it's SpD, but is really unnecessary

    [Checks and Counters]

    - Stealth Rock
    - Powerful Fighting-type moves
    - Sawk, in particular
    - Taunt prevents him from healing
    - Toxic ruins any Regice without Rest

    Sorry, but I gave this to DragonTamerChris.

    First of all, you didn't post a skeleton at all. Then, when tennisace contacted you about it, you seemed to ignore it, still not posting a skeleton. And now you post the skeleton on the last day, possibly to avoid an infraction. I talked to tennisace about this and he agrees that DTC should get to keep it.

    Sorry, but this is going to get locked.
