Nobody uses NP MixApe anymore, they're all HP Ice.

You're weak to Mixed Mamo. He'll 2HKO Skarm with Blizzard. Garchomp, Infernape and Blissey are destroyed, and everything else is 2HKO'd.

I would add Bronzong over Skarm in to remedy this, unless you really want those Spikes. Bronzong can also use Stealth Rock, which clears up room on Blissey's set for Protect or something.

Good team otherwise though.

I'm not sure the point of WishBliss, since nothing really needs the support. D: I'd just go with Softbolioled. Gengar should run Mild. I don't like running Brave Bird on Skarm, seeing as I hate the recoil, and I'd rather just have Drill Peck.

Yeah run Mild. Also, you're going Choice Scarf, max Spd is certainly not needed, I never really use Scarf on anything under 100 Spd. Probably get enough to outrun 100 Base Spd Pokemon that are holding Scarf and put the rest in Atk.

And yeah, Brave Bird just isn't worth it on Skarm.
