mmm If you really want to keep ratatta alive and it comes out with 1HP it will die to entry hazards so... maybe a rapid spinner??

The attempt to pull off FEAR with Rattata is kind of iffy, because Clefairy does it so much better thanks to Magic Guard. Add Clefairy with a weather user like Tyranitar and you should be guaranteed to net a KO. In Gen 5, Level 1 Donphan can also pull it off thanks to Sturdy now being able to act as a Focus Sash and Shell Bell restoring health. Use the following set (i believe this is right):
Donphan @ Shell Bell
Adamant Nature- Sturdy
252 Atk/meh
0 HP IVs

Ice Shard

Instead of sacrificing Vaporeon to supply wish, Clefairy/Donphan can work well with Leech Seed support. If this is Gen 4, Roserade and Celebi are your best bets. In gen 5, go with Ferrothorn or Whimsicott.

Bronzong and Gengar do not mix, especially with Bronzong utilizing Trick Room. I would drop Bronzong for Jirachi to spread paralysis support to help out Snorlax.

Gengar should not be tricking, no matter what. Anything that switches in on it has a Choice Band anyway.
Gengar @ Life Orb
Timid Nature- Levitate
252 Spa/ 252 Spe/ 4 HP

Shadow Ball
Focus Blast
Pain Split

^ Much superior to a choice set, because you can Sub to scout for Pursuits and beat out Blissey and Tyranitar.

Snorlax wants Curse/Body Slam/ Fire Punch/ Rest. Selfdestructing a setup sweeper is never a good idea.

For a last Pokemon, I would pick something that sets up Spikes, since you already have a spinblocker in the form of Gengar. Forretress, Roserade, and Skarmory work in Gen 4, Ferrothorn and Doexys-S work in Gen 5. keep in mind that Deoxys will be your lead in Gen 5, not Clefairy.

So, overall, changes:

Gen 4 version:


Gen 5 Version:

Ferrothorn (can provide Spikes, Seed, and T-Wave support)

Hope that helped!
I'm back. But not as active as before. 2 years has been too long.
