    I had to look up Glaciate and I am disappoint in Game Freak. It's Icy Wind with 10 additional BP >_>

    To be honest, while that is unique, I think you shouldn't make so much changes to standard sets with Kyurem as it really is a one-trick pony, and that's all it seems to work as. For item, I'd definitely go with either a Choice Scarf, Choice Specs or a Life Orb. I guess you could try out a Lum if you wanted, but it doesn't fear status (except Par) all that much and the boost in speed or power it would get is much more preferable.

    Change Modest to Timid. It's at that funny speed where you need to run a Speed boosting nature to survive.

    I'm not too sure about the EVs. It won't be taking all too many attacks, and I wanna know why you put so much in HP.

    As for moves, they're pretty good. If you want, Dragon Pulse can go over Glaciate as you probably won't get much of an opportunity to slow down sweepers and keep them in to be KO'd.

    lol, that is a smogon set. there are 4. the point is to switch in on something that would fear a scarf kyurem or whatever, then nail the switch in with a glaciate. the rest is self explanatory. except draco meteor. i want dragon pulse there.

    Yeah, just because it's Smogon doesn't mean it's a good set. The only things that will switch in on that, don't care that their Speed has been lowered. Special walls aren't very fast and don't care for speed nine out of ten times: take a look at Blissey, Chansey, Cress, bulky waters and Lax even. The set itself just seems much worse than the standard sets.

    you are just looking at this in one way. what if terrakion, scarftar, scarftran switch into kyurem? and most often they will.

    Well Terrakion dies to a Draco Meteor with easeso I see noreason why they'd risk sending this in unless completely desperate. Besides, the usage of ScarfTran and Scarftar have plummeted a lot. Ttar because of the prevalence of weather and how almost all sets now are bulky sets in order to keep the Weather setupper alive as long as they can. Scarftran is fairly meh, imo, and I rarely see it. Besides, even if you smacked a Heatran on the switch, with Glaciate, what then? You can't do anything to it without the Specs (or at least Life Orb) boost.

    focus blast kills heatran straight away. and scarftar's usage has infact increased greatly after excadrill's banning.

    Focus miss is Focus miss, but yeah I forgot about it. Then I guess Glaciate could work. It's interesting and has its uses.

    allright, i'm creating a rain entry-hazards team with a drizzle-toed, tentacruel and ferrothorn(and maybe gliscor for handling breloom)core. I want some suggestions for:
    1) a sr'er(don't suggest t-tar, duh?)
    2) spin blocker(don't suggest jellicent, since the rotom-w weakness is already painful)
    3) a phazer.

    1) Ferrothorn (just run dual hazards on it)
    2) none, unless you want Gengar or Sableye
    3) Dragonite or Latias

    1) Like Heath said, Ferrothorn works definitely, but consider Bronzong too. It has so many useful resistances for a Rain team, isn't too bothered by Fire moves in Rain, Screens, Hypnosis, etc.
    2) Eh, Sableye. It won't last long against Starmie, but beats Donphan, Hitmontop, Forertress and all other physical-based ones with WoW.
    3) Dragonite has amazing synergy with Ferrothorn and Rain teams in general.
