    I remember beating this team once but I got damn lucky. Great team, and NP Mew is a force to be reckoned with.

    First of all congrats on the ST8 win. You obviously know what your doing so feel free to completely disregard my suggestion which is to replace Virizion with a standard bulk up Breloom. It puts a stop to Rotom-W which could otherwise destroy your team, as well as preventing rain stall from toxicing you and stalling you out to put you into KO range for revenge killers. Overall though great team and once again congrats.

    That seems really solid, I'll try it out, thanks.

    SD LO is worn down very quickly by recoil + tspikes, and I can always bail myself out with Sturdy Forretress. Not sure how Psyshock Mew would lure Latios in, I understand CM Latias though, but the Conk weakness it would create is not worth it. Ice Beam Mew beats CM Latias if Latias switches in on NP, so I'd rather try that than Psyshock.

    I also run some speed creep on Tran but I took it out for this RMT.

    I'll try out Ice Beam instead of Shadow Ball because they both hit Lati@s but Ice Beam also hits Gliscor and Dragonite. Mew and Reuniclus aren't big enough issues to use Shadow Ball.

    Forretress can take a +2 EQ even with Life Orb. I'll try out Bluewind's Specially Defensive Rotom-W suggestion for this as well because I dont think you need a lot of defense to survive +2 Stone Edge anyway.

    Rotom-W isn't a weakness in practice, my pokemon have the bulk to take super effective hits from it and my opponent really needs to constantly predict correctly for Rotom-W to do much damage. Breloom over Virizion is interesting but I really need the speed that Virizion offers to outspeed everything from Heatran to Hydreigon, and Mach Punch Breloom is too weak.

    @ French - if you guys have suggestions please post them.
