Has anyone else heard of the GTS Shock Exchange?
Spoiler Alert!I made my way through route 23 avoiding as many trainers as possible. I got Flamethrower and taught it to Camerupt and Manectric. When I got to the beginning of Victory Road, I didn't bother healing because I had only had a couple of battles. I charged through Victory Road battling only the 4 necessary trainers (5 if you count Hugh).
Before I attempted to beat the E4, I stocked up on lots of healing items (revives, full restores, max potions).
I beat the E4 without too much difficulty and battled Iris.
I beat her Hydreigon, Lapras and Aggron easily. Then she brought in her Focus Sash Haxorus. It Dragon Danced and swept my whole team.
I decided to do some extra training before I attempted to battle Iris because I knew her Haxorus woule be a pain in the ass
I levelled everyone up to Lv. 69 (please excuse my immaturity) and I am currently waiting outside the E4 about to enter.

Protip: the key t' trashing Iris' Haxorus is t' OHKO it. If you knock it down to it's Focus Sash in one hit, she'll use a Full Restore guaranteed next turn (if she has any left), allowin' to you hit it again. 'Course, this time it won't have a Sash t' save itself.
Though I'm sure ya already knew that...
Uh, if you can get 'er to bring in Cloyster somehow, Sandslash might be able t' take one Dive and get in two extra Swords Dances/X-Attacks.

No, after one use Focus Sash disappears. It's a consumable item.
... Taunt works too. I always forget it's an option since my Pokes never use it.
This is the first time I've actually used Taunt on my team.
FINAL BLACK 2 SCRAMBLE UPDATE
I did the puzzle to get TM12 (Taunt) and went back to the E4. I challenged Marshal first. I OHKOed everyone except for Sawk because of Sturdy.
Shauntal was beaten with mainly Jellicent. So was Caitlin.
I beat Grimsley with mainly Camerupt. I used Jellicent for Krookodile.
Now comes Iris.
Before I started the battle, I taught Jellicent taunt to use against the Haxorus.
Hydreigon was annoying to beat. He was either resistant or immune to most of my attacks. I beat it by spamming Swift with Espeon.
I tried to beat Aggron with a Thunder from Manectric. It hit but left it with a sliver of health (Iris used the full restore on Hydreigon). I finished it off with a Discharge.
I switched into Jellicent as she sent out Haxorus and taunted it. I went into Camerupt to attack it. Unfortunately Camerupt was KOed by EQ. I went to Manectric and used Discharge to break the Focus Sash. Somehow Manectric just survived the EQ so I Max Revived Camerupt on the next turn. I finished Haxorus off with a Ground Gem boosted EQ. As Iris sent out Lapras, I switched into Jellicent to heal Manectric. I switched into Manectric as Lapras used Thunderbolt, raising my special attack. I OHKOed it with Discharge.
I beat Druddigon with an EQ from Camerupt and switched back into Manectric for Archeops. I OHKOed it with a Discharge and became champion of Unova!!!

She didn't use her Full Restore once (twice?) in my battle with her, even though I was OHKO-ing all of her Pokemon up to Haxorus.
She used the Full Restore on Lapras.
