Id look into something faster to help deal with those, which seems to be this teams main problem. Its rather slow.
I've had problems with Gliscor ever since the start. I've tried countless ways of trying to counter it like sending out Tyranitar/Magnezone for an Earthquake bait and switch in Heatran, hoping that HP Ice will hit. If it has a sub, and Heatran doesn't outspeed, then I'm probably doomed.

As for Haxorus, I've forgotten about it! Although I don't see much Haxorus while laddering, someone pops in with a choice set and the only 'mon that can hopefully bring pain to it.

Ugh, I really need a check for these two. Thoughts anyone?

I actually had Earth Power over Scald. But I'll consider Earth Power over Ice Beam.

The reason I used Drain Punch is because I wanted to keep the LO, and with that, my only other resort of healing is the HP drain of Drain Punch. And Shed Skin is pretty much what a Lum Berry is, except it doesn't take effect immediately and has multiple uses. But I'll consider Lum Berry, Moxie, and Hi Jump Kick. :3
