110/75/85 means most attacks do a lot more damage percentage-wise, but you're right about Deoxys having terrible HP. Max Speed is an interesting idea. Banded TTar can't quite OHKO with Crunch though.

So, as we all know, Flareon's physical movepool is terrible, with Fire Fang being his strongest physical STAB. I use Flame Charge because it sacrifices a bit of power for the ability to boost Speed. Anyways, with a base 130 Attack boosted by Guts, Facade hits hard. Like, really really ****ing hard, easily 2HKOing almost anything in the tier that doesn't resist it. Superpower breaks down Rock and Steel types, but Steel types are normally hit almost as hard by two consecutive Flame Charges than by two consecutive Superpowers, and then the last slot is a toss-up. Quick Attack lets him nail weakened threats that outspeed him, while Protect ensures the Toxic Orb activates.
Also, after trying Weather Trapper Heatran, I decided to make a Rain equivalent. Tell me what you think.
Tentacruel @ Air Balloon / Black Sludge
Timid - Rain Dish (Clear Body if using Whirlpool)
252 Sp. Atk, 252 Speed, 4 Def
-Wrap / Whirlpool
-Hidden Power (Fire) / Rapid Spin
Tentacruel is probably Rain's best option as a weather trapper. Very respectable bulk backed by a usable Speed and Sp. Atk stat make him great at beating weather starters, plus he's a commonly seen sight on Rain teams as is, so he's rarely ever expected to be a weather trapper. Whirlpool is his best trapping move but unfortunately is illegal with Rain Dish, so I use Wrap. Then, after their Tyranitar or Ninetales has been trapped, you use Rain Dance and fire off Hydro Pumps until it's dead. Conveniently, 3 out of 4 of the other Weather starters are weak to Water. Hidden Power (Fire) is purely for Abomasnow, but you could carry Rapid Spin for utility if you aren't worried about Hail teams. Abomasnow is arguably the easiest weather starter to take down.
