    I'd prefer Toxic, but I can see the argument for the other options.

    Running double status seems pointless other than winning last Pokemon stall wars.

    It has its uses, but it's all dependent on prediction. I can understand the hesitation, though, so I'll lay off it.

    Night Shade works too to prevent it becoming complete set-up fodder.

    I like the EV spread, I guess 3 immunities works but 30% chance of disabling an opponents move is pretty useful.
    I suggest Will-o-wisp to slow down physical sweeping taunt... maybe...
    I'll vote for shadow ball because we already have two ice types




    Edit: Night shade's not a bad Idea either

    I'd advise against Night Shade, Shadow Ball does enough already.

    Shadow Ball's useful for taking down Starmie's, which helps to keep our hazards up.

    Yep, Shadow Ball is definitely the better choice. I read on Smogon the benefits of Shadow Ball over Scald. However, I am a bit iffy about putting Scald and Will-O-Wisp on the same set, just because it seems a bit redundant to have two burn moves. Still, I can see the benefit, which is to make the Physical durability of the team better.

    Thanks for reading.

    I think Toxic might actually be the best move over Shadow Ball because it gives us a check to Volcarona who wrecks Hail, whilst the other moves are still their to annihilate Terrakion.
    The problem with Taunt is that we have to sacrifice speed and only really check a few extra Pokemon who don't really threaten us right now. If we run Heatran as a wildcard Shadow Ball will be a good last option.
    I see no reason not to have Scald. It is one of the best moves in the entire game.

    Scald is good on volcorona as well,

    or you can fight fire with fire (hehehe puns) and use heatran's flash fire to block volcorona and follow it up with a rock slide, stone edge, or ancientpower.

    With that in mind, it looks like our current team members are
    Mamoswine
    Abomasnow
    Jellicent
    Jellicent is currently with possible moves:
    Scald
    Shadow Ball
    Will o Wisp
    Taunt
    Toxic
    Recover
    We need to decide on these. Possibly Scald over Will o Wisp? Pokémon immune to Scald are normally bulky enough that burning won't make a huge difference, with a few exceptions.

    Jellicent should have definitely scald and recover.

    @Angad; I think we should just leave a slash at Toxic, Taunt and Shadow Ball and move on to the other members.

    Reasonable solution. I'm for it.
