Is skarmbliss combo still the best?

It's not as useful as it used to be because we now have physical Pokemon (Terrakion) and special Pokemon (Keldeo) that can break through that core on their own. Oh and more stallbreakers like Mew, Sableye and Jellicent makes that core their *****.

I don't get it. Blissey walls nasty plot thunders like they're nothing, and skarm shrugs off most physical attacks. How is the introduction of stuff like terrakion changing this?

The only unboosted psyshock blissey fears is from choice specs latios. It can nerver be ohkoed by it anyway.

The problems with this core are terrakion, conkeldurr, keldeo, gen 3/4/5 fire starters and rain. There is no way skarmory is going to resist rain boosted surfs and repeated strong fighting attacks really makes it suffer.
