Best answer

Venasaur: looks good, but i would replace with:

Breloom @ Life Orb
Trait: Technician
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
EVs: 252 Atk/ 212 Spd/ 44 HP
- Mach Punch
- Spore
- Bullet Seed
- Bulk Up
Poison typing on Venasaur is a liability since its only SuperEffective on Grass. Switching to Breloom keeps a Psychic Weakness, but allows you to cover Normal, Rock, Ground, Ice, Steel, Water, and Dark types with the threat of a Supereffective hit, both STAB boosted to boot

Cloister: awesome, but give White Herb to cancel Shell Smash Def/SDef drop.

Gliscor: Good set. consider Facade though with Swords Dance and Toxic Orb Poison Heal trololol

Volcarona: not Bulky Enough to use Roost with a x4 Rocks Weakness, and needing to Set Up with Q Dance. basically, if it needs a Sash, recovery moves are useless.

Skarmory @ Leftovers
Trait: Sturdy
Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
EVs: 252 Def/ 212 HP/ 44 Atk
- Brave Bird
- Spikes
- Whirlwind
- Roost
move Stealth Rock to Ferrothorn. otherwise Taunt = Dead Skarm.

Ferrothorn @ Rocky Helmet
Trait: Iron Barbs
Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)
EVs: 252 HP/ 144 Def/ 112 SDef
- Thunder Wave
- Power Whip
- Stealth Rock
- Leech Seed
better.

hope this helps :)

Genesect kills half of this team :/
Bolt-Beam coverage kills half of everything. mix in Flamethrower to KO Steel types and U-Turn to f up Dark and Psychic types, plus Download... Genesect kills everything. name me one Type  combo that Genesect DOESN'T 2HKO with Ice, Electric, Fire, or Bug attacks??
You oculd still put a counter in their. Sayin that it kills everything isn't going to stop it from owning your face clean off your shoulders
Fire/Steel *Cough* Heatran *Cough*
DING DING DING!!!! SpumWack is correct! Heatran is the BEST Genesect counter (if not the only one). If Genesect us Scarfed (why wouldn't it be??), and is already locked into an attack not named "U-Turn", which is all it could be locked into, Blissey makes a fine check to Genesect, as well as Eviolite Chansey. Snorlax also makes a decent check.

Source: personal experience these last two hours researching.
in short: Fire/Steel typing shuts Genesect down.
side note: a Bulky Normal Type makes a good check, since Normal Types tend to have High HP.
thanks RyuenjinZ3RO, I took your advice and I just battled 2 teams and ko'ed them with you advice! :)
I was making a point, and I even said, "you could still put a counter in there" You don't have to write a 3 mile long comment about how there are counters to genesect.
:D lol
@AKS: glad i could help.

@Ben: come now, that comment was just over 1 mile long dear friend... lets not exaggerate :P hahaha
I measure it to be exactly 1.3 Miles long :P
Flying is x4 super-effective on Breloom
obviously. but the only common Flying type attacks in OU are Acrobatics, Hurricane, Aerial Ace, and Brave Bird. its not Earthquake or Ice Beam which you will guaranteed see on at least on Pokemon on EVERY team in OU.
and Breloom has Spore. 100% Acc Sleep? most Flying types have a secondary typing that negates Fighting resistance in OU (i.e. Skarmory's Steel cancels out Fighting Resistance from Flying). So Spore on something like Skarmory, Aerodactyl, can be 2HKO'd by Mach Punch, and catching a Landorus in Rock Polish can even possibly OHKO with a 5-hit Bullet Seed (Ground cancels Flying resistance to Grass).
