Frontier: Arcade, Single.
The top scores don't seem hard to reach until you start climbing...
People say the Arcade is relatively easy and that's probably because it is. In the end though I was screwed over by reaction time, especially seeing as though the match before got me a board speed increase. Anyways, the team!
Salamence Adamant 252Atk/252Spd/Def
Comment: You'll notice that this team is out of date, but these three are the only pokemon I've ever been attached to, and that's fine as long as they actually go somewhere. Don't use Stone Edge at a frontier...just don't. I think if I ever go through this hell again I'll use Aerial Ace over Stone Edge because evasion is a big deal in the Arcade.
Metagross Adamant 252Atk/112HP/12Def/132Spd
Comment: The obvious compliment to a Salamence. It might make more sense to make one a special attacker, or a mixed. Explosion is a brilliant way to make sure a match gets finished. Thunder Punch could fit somewhere to help with water types.
Milotic Bold 252HP/252Def/4Spd
Comment: You might think that with the chance of being statused before the match Marvel Scale is a godsend, but to be honest it rarely plays out that way once you get the rhythm of the board. Still, it's there at least. This defensive drake receives the added benefit of Salamences intimidate and sadly enough is my main way of dealing with water types. I just poison them and wait, which does actually work (empoleon and Tentacruel get Earthquaked)
My streak ended quite shamefully against a team of starters; Torterra, Charizard and Sceptile. The Torterra fell fast to Milotic, but the Sceptile used Double Team and Leech Seed and took my team downtown like a clown. I wish that I could say the board was against me, but it landed on Battle Points. I realise this post is a little long, and that the rankings for arcade aren't too competitive so that's why I got on, but I'm proud so shut up.
