    I'd recommend you get a physical wall, maybe physically defensive Slowbro since he really complements Amoongus and in general is really good since fire and fighting types are so prevalent. I'd also recommend other bulky water types such as Blastoise, Suicune, or Milotic. Each of those will be able to cover Amoongus' ice and fire weaknesses while he covers their grass and electric weaknesses.

    Then I recommend either something that can revenge kill or something that can spin away hazards. Kabutops has priority, hazards, can spin, and gives you an answer to rain. He's very hard to use though, and especially with a set that does all the things I listed you will need to predict and bluff incredibly well to make use of him. There's also Hitmontop who I find kinda blah but has priority and Rapid Spin. Spinning or denying hazards should be top priority for you since hazards damage gives away Zoroark and you will need him for busting down walls so Hera can sweep (teams will be well prepared for Hera now).

    I'm going to be on IRC a bunch more now that school is over so all y'alls should challenge me for fights.

    edit: Physically defensive Arcanine is boss:

    Thanks this is really helpful, last time i used a simmulator i made a team having zero clue about anything, my first/only battle i got destroyed 6-0. I'll be sure to challenge you guys sometimes (and probably lose :D).

    as much as i use the moxiecross it does't get me nearly as many KO's as when i send out zoroark disquised as moxiecross, then wait for them to send out a physic XD

    oh and FYI contrary weather and entry hazards do not make zoroarks disguise break :P

    They don't literally break the disguise but the enemy can more easily tell it's Zoroark if there are hazards. For example if you've already sent Heracross in once he'll have already taken stealth rocks damage once. Then if you try to send in Zoroark later disguised as Heracross they'll see he hasn't taken damage yet and they'll know its Zoro. Also if you try to send him in as Chandelure they'll see he doesn't take as much Stealth Rocks damage as Chandelure would have.

    I think I'm going to try to learn to not suck at this stuff. I made lots of mistakes and the match wasn't really that entertaining, but its a start.
