    i haven't had any chances to test things out yet, as i haven't been able to connect to any servers for the past few days. but can you guys spot anything that can be easily fixed? it seems as though blissey gives this team a real hard time, so should i try to add in dugtrio somewhere?

    Your team doesn't really need Wish support, so you can do something else with Salamence. CBAero, Tyranitar, or Regirock seem like winners to me.

    A CBer would really help with the lack of Physical Attack Strength. I say lead with Swampert and use CB cross.

    Looks fine, but you could add something to hit Special walls hard, and knock down walls.

    Looks good defensively.

    You should keep wish support from Salamence to Jirachi. Jirachi is your only sweeper and it's important to keep it healthy.

    If Jirachi dies you lose all sweeping potential. Stalling out the other team won't be too successful because you lack spikes and are generally weak to sandstorm.

    Watch out for Starmie's spin being blocked by dusclops. Most or your pokes hit skarm hard anyway, so why not lose starmie for a more dangerous sweeper and tack a fire move on weezing over sludge bomb or w-o-w.

    In place of starmie add taunt gyrados with hp rock. You can taunt spikes, resist meteor mash, and hp rock allows you to beat zapdos and other gyarados.

    Don't worry about Blissey, that Jirachi is designed to beat her one on one. If serene grace doesn't go your way, send a wish to him and try again.

    theres not enough offense imo. Why not make Jirachi wish support and use Salamences spot for something with some more offense? Jirachi can still sweep with wish..
