Spheal would still have to tank the previous 4 turns of Ice Ball to use its fifth, disregarding its Defensive increase with Defense curl.

If a Physical Wall/Special Sweeper were to switch in (ex. defensively beefed up Magnezone), a STAB Thunder/Thunderbolt would roughen up your Spheal severely before the final Ice Ball and potentially KO it with ease.
