-> charm+memento is godly (I think only gardevoir learns this combo along with trick)
-> memento is incredibly useful and I fell in love with it, I find myself using memento a lot more often than charm, because boy doesn´t survive much anyway
-> bred memento, wow, grudge and d-bond on baby ralts...it surprisingly can´t learn WoW through TM, which is crazy...
-> wow is there for gliscor and metagross4, on paper...it missed 4 out of 4 in my 2 encounters with these 2 pokémon (meta4 missed with its second MM so I was able to miss with WoW twice, for posterity sake - afterwards meta missed MM once against registeel but got 3 boosts out of 8 hits total)
-> I didn´t miss thunder wave so far (only 131 battles total), grudge could be a nice answer to a lot of troublesome stuff, but I don´t have a 4 turn set up poké in my team
I didn't know Gallade would work as a Trick lead. This is pretty cool. Especially the Charm+Memento combo. Awesome, man.
I was actually inspired by DrDimentio's Uxie lead team because of the Memento combo. But then I always lose at battle 120 or 135 everytime I use Uxie. I don't know why. I'm probably doing something wrong or maybe I'm just unlucky. So now I'm using either Latias or Cresselia as my Trick lead.

Perhaps I shouldn't play when I'm sick, because it may have impaired my judgement slightly... but then again, this kind of hax was particularly nasty. I won't give a turn-by-turn description of it since it was very long, but here are the main things that happened:
I'm using my normal Uxie set as a lead (now a flawless-IV one), AI sends out Breloom.
Trick gives me Toxic Orb, I then Thunder Wave, let Registeel stall out Stone Edge (not enough full paralysis to try and pull off a full Registeel set-up before it died from Struggle), then switch back to Uxie to try and re-Trick it to Facade or Thunderpunch... combination of Struggle crit and poison kills me after getting back the Scarf. Now against a non-Tricked Breloom... switch to Salamence for Intimidate, to Registeel, to Mence to stall out 5 DynamicPunch PP while weakening it more with Intimidate... of course, 4 of 5 hit and the 5th is a crit on Salamence, leaving it with about 9 HP. Registeel returns and fully sets up on Thunderpunches and Facades, but....
rather than waiting countless turns for it to use those 2 moves (it was paralysed too), I decide to Iron Head it... thinking it would have Poison Heal since it was the Toxic Orb one. No, it has Effect Spore... and of course, it activates... and of all statuses, I get Sleep.
Next is everyone's favourite Rapidash, the one with Brightpowder, Horn Drill, Flare Blitz, etc. Flare Blitz KOs my Sub, then Horn Drill obviously hits me on its first use (wouldn't expect anything less from the Tower). Salamence is slower...
I suppose I should've tried partially setting up Salamence after a few Intimidates, BUT I kept getting hit by DynamicPunch, and confusion is far too risky to play with. There goes yet another 300+ streak down the drain...
I can't believe I'm still trying to break 1000 >_>.
But it would encourage us to try for a Gold Print in the Factory, which is arguably harder and/or more time-consuming.
Darth Kaiser and Grissom are probably related.
I agree that people posting reasonably good streaks should at least show some level of participation in the Smogon community. I can't remember how I started off here, but I think I made a very short introduction, acknowledged the impressive streaks of people such as Peterko and Jumpman, then mentioned my progress before soon posting my first records, and later answering questions about my streaks.
Damn, that's a bad loss. Especially from a 1 hit KO attack. Definitely a hax. -_-
Are you still gonna give it another go to reach 1,000 wins?
As for me, I just got to 231 wins on my third try (losing to 190 on my second), using the same team I posted. I finally broke my 202 record. Hope I reach 300 wins. ^_^
