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
@Leftovers
Bold
252 Hp/ 252 Def/ 4 SpD
-Substitute
-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
Timid
4 Hp/ 252 SpA/ 252 Spe
-Energy Ball
-Overheat
-Shadow Ball
-Psychic*

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
Timid
4 Hp/ 252 SpA/ 252 Spe
-Hydro Pump
-Ice Beam
-Thunderbolt
-Recover

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
-Fireblast
-Taunt
-U-turn

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
Impish
252 HP/184 Def/72 Spe
-Fling
-Earthquake
-Acrobat
-Protect

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



Hitmontop w/t Technician
@Life Orb
Adamant
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.
