Bolded are changes I'd make, as well as comments.

- Toxic Spikes
- Rock Blast
- Icicle Spear
- Rapid Spin

Rock Blast utilizes Skill Link and beats dangerous Fire-types such as Volcarona and Talonflame.

Dragonite @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Multiscale
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature
- Stone Edge
- Dragon Claw
- Earthquake
- Fire Punch

Edgequake is always a nice combo. With the advent of the Fairy type, Outrage has become a risk - go with Dragon Claw. Fire Punch literally torches Skarmory.

Venusaur @ Venusaurite
Ability: Chlorophyll (becomes Thick Fat)
EVs: 252 Def / 4 SAtk / 252 SDef
Calm Nature
- Sludge Bomb
- Leech Seed
- Giga Drain
- Synthesis

Behold: the Great Wall of Kalos. Incredible survivability, neutralized damage from Fire and Ice, three moves that heal... simply a mighty defensive stalwart.

Umbreon @ Leftovers
Ability: Synchronize
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SDef
Careful Nature
- Protect
- Toxic
- Moonlight
- Confuse Ray

I think you already know how Protect and Toxic work on this one. Moonlight and Confuse Ray serve to make it even tankier.

Chandelure @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Flash Fire
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature
- Dark Pulse
- Shadow Ball
- Flamethrower
- Energy Ball

Reckless? Probably. Worth it? Definitely. Off that monstrous 145 base Special Attack, Chandelure can afford to take chances. Although Dark Pulse's coverage is the same as Shadow Ball's, the flinch chance is always nice to have.

Mienshao (M) @ Life Orb
Ability: Regenerator
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 HP / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature
- Drain Punch
- Fake Out
- Stone Edge
- Knock Off

Knock Off's BP is now 65, making it a viable option. Life Orb, Regenerator, and Drain Punch form a nice combination.

See you on Saturday. (Sunday for me, but you know...)

There had been a vital mistake on my last bill, and so I was being refunded for overcharges on my voice minutes. Later that day, I found one of those special vending machines from Coca-Cola's viral marketing campaign. It was a very memorable day.
