I'm just planning ahead for a competitive Gen V team. The team was very offensive but I switched Scrafty and Gyarados for Gliscor and Hitmontop and I'm trying to take advantage of the paralysis that Whimsicott can spread with stun spore.

Whimsicott w/t Mischievous Heart
252 Hp/ 252 Def/ 4 SpD
-Leech Seed
-Encore/ Taunt
-Stun spore

Chose a bulky EV spread so it can at least take a hit. Not sure what to choose between taunt or encore. Taunt can prevent rocks and spikes, but encore can punish rocks, spikes, and setup moves.

Chandelure w/t Flash Fire
@Choice Scarf
4 Hp/ 252 SpA/ 252 Spe
-Energy Ball
-Shadow Ball

Chandelure resists moves that are SE on Whimsicott, especially if its a fire move. I didn't want to be completely dependent on Whimsicott to spread status, so I chose a scarfed set. *I am not sure what to run for the last slot. I was wondering if psychic could inflict some serious damage on a Conkeldurr, but I'll have to do a damage calculation. I was also wondering if there are any notable pokemon that Chandelure would not be able to outrun if I chose a modest nature?

Starmie w/t Natural Cure
@Life Orb
4 Hp/ 252 SpA/ 252 Spe
-Hydro Pump
-Ice Beam

Pretty standard. Offers a lot of the coverage the rest of my team lacks.

Hydreigon w/t Levitate
@Life Orb
Modest/ Timid
4 Hp/ 252 SpA/ 252 Spe
-Draco Meteor

Chose a stallbreaker set so Blissey won't be that much of a problem and for the option to scout.

Gliscor w/t Poison Heal
@Toxic Orb
252 HP/184 Def/72 Spe

Resists fighting type moves which Hydreigon doesn't appreciate and checks both Conkeldurr and Excadrill.

Hitmontop w/t Technician
@Life Orb
252 HP/ 252 Atk/ 4 Def
-Fake Out
-Rapid Spin
-Mach Punch
-Sucker Punch

An offensive Hitmontop with the option to spin away hazards (rocks of which will ruin Chandelure's day).

I see a lot of Life Orbs, so if anybody think that will be a problem, I am open for suggestions on other items. And I was wondering if it would be more advantageous to run Whimsicott as lead or Hitmontop.
The voices tell me I'm not insane.
