    Does that ProtectLax set really deserve the second spot? The main issue with Protect is other than Mienshao and Scrafty jerks using Hi Jump Kick, Protect isn't helping Snorlax all that much, since its pretty predictable when a Pokemon is ready to (attept to) smash Snorlax with a Fighting move. I'd say probably 3rd/4th slot, but maybe when this isn't a WIP I'll see its viability a bit more.

    As much as I love ProtectLax, CurseLax should definitely be second.

    Speaking of CurseLax; Crunch > Fire Punch, the latter to AC plz.

    Other than that, and perhaps some EV changes later, the sets look ok.

    I would slash Leftovers on the CB set (and call it tank or offensive) or offer a more offensive spread for ProtectLax in AC. Also, ditto to what they said about set order.
