    How 'bout this, I cant see any obvious flaws.

    Also what about switching skarmory for

    Iron Barbs
    252 HP / 88 Def / 168 Sp Def
    Relaxed
    - Leech Seed
    - Stealth Rock

    or this

    Sassy
    - Stealth Rock
    - Crunch

    and do legendary pokemon have much better stats? Is it worth it to use them?

    Also since in my pokemon online test runs Mienshao normally faints fast, should I switch it for
