seems solid enough.

Glaring weaknesses I can see (yet they can be played around) are darmanitan/arcanine and taunt hydreigon. Luckily, first two are not that common in our metagame.

You might have some issues against hp ice mienshao but still able to play around it.

What?!? Sand veil and hyper cutter are useless =.="

Is it still worth using gliscor?

No they aren't.

 

Sure, Poison Heal is infinitely better but they aren't bad at all.

Ok maybe they have their uses but I'm using reuniclus and gliscor to sweep thinking they'll be immune to statuses..

Sand veil is not useful for my comp.

Any replacement?

voltturn cores should avoid pokemon that kill momentum like chansey or skarmory

Pretty good team, but I would change a few things.

 

That Gliscor seems to have a bit of an identity crisis. Not sure if he wants to be a tank that sticks around or a sweeper that hits hard. Swords dance (sweeper setup) but not going all in on attack seems strange. You are willing to invest 1/4 moves for sweeping but almost none of the EVs (not max speed or attack). Then you plop on roost which means 2/4 moves are dedicated to setup/heal/stall. I would go all in for attack if that is what you want out of it. If sweeping is what you want (I assume since you already have tanks), then try out flying gem + acrobatics (a VERY strong attack) along with swords dance (obviously), substitute (serves a similar role to roost, but better for offense) and earthquake (STAB bonus). Throw in max attack EVs and max Speed EVs. Your team doesn't need another flying tank, you already got skarmory after all. Also go with adamant for that extra attack

 

If you change Gliscor, drop brave bird on skarmory for taunt. Skarmory is not the ideal flying attacker (you got gliscor after all), might as well double down on that tanky support role. Or maybe use spikes and get a spikes + stealth rock combo going since you got lots of pokemon that can force a swap.

 

Also I would take Psychock over Psychic but that choice is more personal and neither is a bad choice

Initially, I wanted to make a offensive voltturn team but there aren't many great voltturn cores on pokemmo so I made it semi-stally with scizor jolteon for some momentum.

 

My plan was to use chansey skarmory to stall against offensive team and using toxic, stealth rock+whirlwind to wear it down.

Against stall team, I would target its hazer and setup with bulky offense gliscor or reuniclus but since gliscor doesn't get poison heal, it's not going to fit this role.

For VoltTurn, the best mons I can think of are Darmanitan, Magnezone (scarf), Jolteon, Scizor and a few other U-Turn users. Chansey and Skarmory are a good defensive core, pretty solid in general. Against a stall team, reuniclus is a great pokemon to setup with.

 

If you want bulky offense, I find conkledurr a good, if slow, fit. Able to take a hit and deal out powerful priority attacks is always desired.
