Is there any reason NOT to run Charm over Tickle? I suppose it might be to keep the damage output to them equal, but wouldn't you be KO'd by a strong physical attack followed by a -1 of that same attack?
Ive been testing this team as well, and am too having troubles with Misdreavus, I had to finally resort to Aqua Jet to finish Misdreavus off.
Taillow is not doing much on this team often I find, since without proper support to remove the Rocks and Steels of Little Cup, as well as not having a means to prevent SR, Taillow has a hard time sweeping teams and only a full health Taillow can actually stop Misdreavus.
For this reason, I propose we replace Taillow with Munchlax. But, the unique thing about this Munchlax would be making it slightly mixed- i.e, running Shadow Ball. I saw that Bulky Misdreavus couldnt really handle taking a Shadow Ball after w-o-wing the Munchlax (it was 3HKOd). IIRC it was either iss or rolfkip who used the munchlax, so credit to them.
If nothing else, we could run Resttalk Lax or something along those lines, or even a Resttalk Clamperl, who Misdreavus fails to even 3HKO thanks to its gargantuan special defense stat of 30 or 32 and 23 HP, alongside a respectable 17 Def. Surf is a clean 3HKO on Missy, and Misdreavus will actually never KO you barring some hax, since every two turns one can just Rest off the damage. Ofourse this is a more shaky counter to Misdreavus, but it might be better for taking on bulky W-o-W variants which are becoming increasingly popular, and rightfully so.
Clamperl and Munchlax also help with the teams current incredible ice weak, and as of now Snover seems top run through this team without much problem outside of Wynaut.
If we choose to use Munchlax, I think the obvious scarfer to go with it would be either Scarf Gastly, who synergises well as well as giving us another way to avoid ground type moves. Maybe a Scarf Diglett would be good as well to trap problem mons we might come across, although it wouldnt really go well with the current team.
If we choose Clamperl, then i think Chinchou is a good enough partner, although we might possibly want a more defensively bulky scarfer, possibly Magnemite, as it takes all of Clamperls weaknesses.
If we really become weak to Cranidos, one might have to consider running Phanpy out of the lead position and using Counter instead of Stealth Rock to take on more bulky scarfers like Machop who Phanpy might not easily KO otherwise.
Thats all I can think of for now, but in general Taillow needs to go IMO :/
you could use my Munchlax, which does a good job luring WoW Misdreavus and killing it.
Munchlax @ Lum Berry
Thick Fat: Adamant
236 Attack, 36 Defense, 236 Sp. Defense
I think it's especially useful with Wynaut to take advantage of Fighting types, the only pokemon who can break through Munchlax without dieing in the process.
Jolly Cranidos Head Smash versus Wynaut:tbh, I don't see how we have such a scarf cranidos weakness considering we have WYNAUT, can it not live through EQ, stone edge etc.?
