1) Ho-oh teams have spinners so its unlikely you can keep SR up 2) You're a CMset and 2 of the pokes you listed are special attackers... you can CM in their faces. Scizor and Palkia(Outrage) can't do more than 50% to you. The only thing you have to worry about for those three is Mewtwo exploding in your face then something revenge killing you but Thunder wouldn't save you anyway there because Mewtwo outspeeds. 3) People don't use Thunderbolt over Thunder because the main target of Thunder is Kyogre. Well Kyogre, Manaphy, and Steels in the rain. But point is Thunder is primarily used to hit Kyogres Primary users of Thunder are: Kyogre Mewtwo Palkia Lati@s Dialga Giratina-O All of them carry it to hit Kyogre and Manaphy for SE damage since they're the only pokes weak to it.
