Okey dokey pig in a pokey.....
Hmm..maybe a mira berry isn't needed, but it would sure help. Yet, rest is new on this poke, and with reflect could well work. Crunch is good for those psychics, alakazam *cough*, and you rarely see a ground starter.
Absolutely fine. See no probs here, but you may get hated for using this poke! Protect is nice and original, and allows you to see if they, the opposing poke, are sporting a fire/electric attack. Good.
rhydon@leftovers (haven't tested yet)
This will need quick claw to get horn drill working in any way, so ditch the protect/lefty combo. You could try rest on this poke, so it can last longer for more horn drills, and boy does it need a long time to get those working!
Baaah seen it all before. Really is quite dull, and screwed against a mirror coater. Having so many pokes with rest is, in hindsight, a bad idea, but if this is torney and you want to win I suppose you could try it. Give this return at least.

cross chop/cross chop
Go with primeape, the lovable pig-ape. HP rock will not do a lot of damage, rock slide can be learned by 'ape I think so go with that. Meditate is nice, and I think this team needs some good speed. Cross chop and reversal are good. Beware of hazers/roarers.
This poke is getting remarkably popular with this set, so why are people not afraid of physical attacks to the extent that they encourage them with light screen??? I'm not sure if reflect is possible, but this will take a hit when it switches in to heal bell, and another as it is slow on the turn it wants to 'bell. 700 odd hp runs out very quickly with a 110 odd defense.
Underused you want eh? I'll go over it here:
raikou - use raichu!! It can have reflect, t-bolt, rest and a nice status changer like attract/charm/sweet kiss to irritate the opponents. Does really the same thing, and if you want it to be like raikou with crunch, there's always dark hp...
skarmory - can't really be replaced, much as many people would like to...
rhydon - isn't overused, someone should do an underused report on it....(hint - someone do one for it!!)
suicune - very overused. There are loads of roarers out there, you already have a whirlwinder so how about a golduck???
:give it psych up, surf, icebeam, rest and nevermelt ice, it is very similar, but much more playable!
Primeape - underused, yaaaaay.
Blissey - if you want a heal beller that isn't common, go with granbull, a good poke, give it:
anyway, that was still a good team, and I can see it doing very well in a torney.
