    Is psychic viable on ReflectLax instead of Ice Beam/Earthquake?

    - Body Slam
    - Reflect
    - Rest
    - Psychic

    Ice Beam means Snorlax gets walled by Gengar, and Earthquake means being walled by another ReflectLax.
    While psychic doesn't pack a punch like IB/EQ it covers everything - Gengar, Rhydon, Snorlax. And of course you have the special drops on Snorlax. Perhaps in an environment where you're unable to anticipate your opponent's team, such as the PS! ladder, psychic isn't such a bad option?

    Or am I missing some glaringly obvious drawback to using psychic?

    Main issue AFAIK is being unable to play for freeze on (Reflect) Chansey (this is the point of IB over Blizzard, as the latter is otherwise superior due to the 2HKO on Rocks).
