    I have Roar on Arcanine rather than Espeed due to Psychic terrain, I use it to remove TR (or Evoboost) users.

    I'm running ExS Arcanine in a team with Lele and it's running extremely well. No other Tapus. If Eevee teams are an issue Haze works great on Drifblim in order to force opponent to forfeit the game. I'm running an offensive team with support Arcanine and it works great: ExS, Flare Blitz, Roar and Protect with Mago Berry.

    As far as sixth member is concerned I'd go for someone else hitting Celesteela hard, such as Magnezone or Tapu Koko because your team except Arcanine seems pretty weak to it.

    Oh well another question: I see your point on Drifblim is to outspeed adamant Pheromosa. What about trying to outrun common scarf users? I'd go up to adamant scarf kartana maybe, in order to surprise cripple it with wow before it does bad things to your team.

    Haze instead of Protect I guess? Could do, that would be nice. Magnezone would be my preferred from those as I wouldn't want to reset terrain if possible.
    Yeh I'll have a look at that, thanks.

    Apart from Lele under Tailwind, your team has very little to check Garchomp, which outspeeds Lele under normal circumstances. You also could use a check to common Trick Room teams, since apart from Muk everything on your team is on the speedier end. I would recommend something like Snorlax, as you have great counters to fighting types like Pheromosa and Hariyama. A nice Curse set can work wonders, as can a Belly Drum set. Either way, it deters potential Trick Rooms from the opponent, and can still operate fine under normal conditions. Best of luck with this team! It looks really cool!

    Thanks guys. I've been testing with Magnezone and I'm enjoying it. I'm going to have a play with Lax aswell and see which I think works better.
