I don't think we do. If we did I feel like I would know about it. Hey Drizzle, you play a lot of VCG stuff right? Well I hear that Trick Room is a big thing there and I'm working on a UU trick room team, I'm wondering if you had any insight about it.
I've got 5 trick room users right now and its still in testing. The big sweepers are Porygon-Z, Cofagrigus, and Mixed Crustle. The Crustle may seem strange but I love the set so much, it lets me OHKO Riaku with Earthquake and at the same time OHKO Evolite Gligar with HP(Ice) shell smash lets me boost up if I have the oportunity and Stone Edge gives me great coverage. I had down Blastoise instead of Slowbro but it really wasn't helping me so I'm testing out Specs Slowbro.
Uxie is great because it just has such god like bulk and can set up rocks for me. Heal Bell is amazing too. Brozngong is really self explanitory, duel screen support allows so many of my pokemon to just laugh at my opponents. Gyro Ball lets me take on Hail teams that like to run around UU. Those two make up my defensive core (Although their shared type is saddening I can't swap either of them because they work so well)
What I really need right now is a good person to put in instead of Slowbro that can resist Dark and Ghost type attacks without sharing Bronzong's weakness to Fire, because Chandelure is just running all over this team, I have to sacrafice someone to take it out, or hope I have enough bulk to get up Trick Room before dying. Zapdos is also causing me trouble with Heat Wave to take out Bronzgong and enough power to muscle through my other members other than Uxie, but Uxie can't don anything in return so its a mute point.
Porygon-Z's power is just ungodly, and when it can snag a SpAttack boost is just rips through teams. Being able to set up its own Trick Room is also helpful because it gives me more turns to wreak havoc if the opponent puts in a bulky set and thinks they are just going to stall me out of Trick Room. Discharge was chosen over Thunder Bolt because of the 30% chance to paralyze which is just great. Ice Beam gives me Bolt-Beam coverage and Tri-Attack is a great stab with 20% chance to give you a status.

Perhaps you have too many special attackers:Crustle's longevity will tend to diminish after a shell smash,so once it's gone you'll be quite vulnerable to special walls.
And you can always use Heatproof on your Bronzong to overcome the fire weakness,or even activating rain.
Nobody's going to waste a turn checking whether your Bronzong has levitate or not by using a ground move on it.Unless this is a doubles/triples team,where that sort of thing is harder to hide.
Nope I'm doing this in singles UU play so Heatproof would be viable. I know I am running a lot of Special Attackers but the only Special Walls in UU that are really viable are Umbreon and Snorlax, both of which I do not have counters to right now. I also really want a rapid spinner. Would Hitmontop be viable?
