Having said that, yes, I needed Dragon Claw somewhere on my moveset. Probably should have gotten rid of Dragon Dance for it. Had two ice attackers on my team, so I wasn't anticipating a situation where I needed Sala to take out a Zapdos. Hindsight is 20/20.
While there admittedly is no evasion clause at Nintendo tournaments, the effectiveness of these hax items is reduced due to the increased opportunities to hit a Pokemon with two Pokemon attacking and the prevalence of multi hit moves a la Explosion, Heat Wave, Surf, and Earthquake. As you stated, DD probably wasn't the best choice of move in a metagame where battles are much swifter and the margin for error is less.
Still, you're pretty good, and it'd be cool if you hung around Smogon and joined us.
