Still, I'll give your suggestions some thought. Feel free to make any additional suggestions or modify your previous one.

EDIT: Why Flash Fire instead of Flame Body on Chandelure?
Flash Fire is there on Chandelure because it gives it another opportunity to switch in. Even though it's already resistant to Fire, Flash Fire boosts its Fire moves when hit by a Fire move instead of damaging it. That, and Flame Body doesn't activate whenever you want it to all the time.

Ice Beam is Froslass' lone attack because if it opts to use Shadow Ball as its only move, it's walled by Normal Pokemon. Also, the Froslass set I posted isn't meant to sweep, only to support.
