So! I decided to continue my Single Battle Arcade
streak today (it was at 49 since I didn't bother playing it after getting goldprint). I was just using random (mostly) hard attacking teams for #1 - 49 (see: http://www.smogon.com/forums/showpos...&postcount=776
), involving Porygon-Z / Milotic / Gengar / Metagross / Starmie / Gyarados.
Today I just decided to use the team I used for Double Battle Castle earlier on this page though (2nd post on this page). But of course, in Single Detect and having 2 electric moves on Zapdos is a bit stupid, so I got my Zapdos to have Thunderbolt / Heatwave / Roost / Toxic instead. After a while, for some reason I decided to use Heatran over Metagross, for no apparent reason. My Heatran was Timid with Flamethrower / Dragon Pulse / Earth Power / Substitute (usually it held leftovers outside of battle arcade) and I stuck with that.
Timid Zapdos: Thunderbolt / Heatwave / Toxic / Roost
Timid Heatran: Flamethrower / Dragon Pulse / Earth Power / Substitute
Adamant Flygon: Outrage / Fire Punch / Earthquake / U-Turn (Roost would have been better since it's not choiced in arcade anymore, but then I don't want to waste my Roost TM just for battle arcade)
I just have to say Zapdos is amazing. Even without sub (which works so well with pressure + roost), Toxic + Roost lets me stall out a ton of stuff. Flygon without that Scarf wasn't nearly as good, but o well. Heatran's resistances come in handy. Anyway, I got 68 streak
... and lost to Trick Room.
Trick Room was what I got on my roulette and I already knew I was in trouble because I see Lapras as one of my opponents. Zapdos OHKO'd something I forgot but took some damage. Lapras was slower than all my pokemon, so it ice beamed Zapdos for the KO and Flygon (easy OHKO) and Surf critical hit and OHKOd Heatran, and that was that.
Hm, interesting that that's 3rd on the Battle Arcade record list. My team obviously isn't that well constructed. I suppose not many people like Battle Arcade either.
