With Smeargle Spore the opponent put up a substitute, dragon dance and baton pass to breloom, then keep using spore and substitute until your opponent’s asleep and you have a substitute up then attack, cresselia is for pokemon that are faster than smeargle, I chose Cresselia because she can switch in on a lot, set up and then take down your opponents whole team.
The baton pass smeargle doesn’t work against all pokemon so sometimes I need to switch to Cresselia: when the first pokemon in the opponents team has a speed higher than 152, if their first pokemon is Tyranitar, Hippowdon or Abomasnow, holding a lum/chesto berry, lax incense, bright powder or quick claw, if any of the opponents pokemon have insomnia, vital spirit, early bird or taunt. Usually when I switch to Cresselia I lower the first pokemon’s level to make sure that she can set up, when I send out Cresselia I start by using double team and moonlight untill her evasiveness is maxed then I use charge beam until her Sp.Att is maxed. I skip trainers that have pokemon that I have to switch to Cresselia that I know she will lose against like anything with crunch, shadow ball, toxic or any move that raises Att or Sp.Att, or that can lower your Def/Sp.Def and Tyranitar will always win against Cresselia even after she’s set up.
When I don’t need to switch, I raise the opponent’s 2nd and 3rd pokemon’s levels for extra points, if they have pokemon with: a base speed of 120 and higher or a nidoking, nidoqueen, claydol, cresselia, dusknoir or hippowdon I use dragon dance twice before I baton pass, and their first pokemon has less than 124 speed I raise its level and if it has between 139 & 152 I lower its level.
Since Breloom's Poison Heal restores 1/8 of his HP every turn, he can keep on using spore and substitute forever without running out of HP, that way if your faster than your opponent (which Dragon Dance does), then your opponent can't hit Breloom. Breloom has wake-up-slap and stone edge because it gives him great type coverage, and I gave him wake-up-slap instead of focus punch because with its lower priority Breloom is sometimes left without a substitute and if the next pokemon sent out has a lum or chesto berry Breloom will be knocked out.
With healing and restoring PP, I usually heal Smeargle once he gets to half HP and if he needs to use Dragon dance twice before Baton Passing. I never need to heal Breloom's HP, Poison Heal does that for me, and I ussualy don't need to restore Cresselia's HP. For PP I restore Breloom and Smeargle's PP when it gets low, or if Breloom needs to face a Dusknoir, and I restore Cresselia's PP after every time she battles just incase something goes wrong.
My points vary a lot, because my strategy depends on luck, whether I battle or skip a trainer all depends on their first Pokemon, so my points varied between 100 and 1100 during my streak.
I lost to a trainer with a Crobat, Zapdos and Moltres, I left Crobat’s level and raised Zapdos and Moltres’ levels. I switched to Cresselia and maxed evasiveness and raised her Sp. Att a few levels before knocking Crobat out, I knocked Zapdos out and he sent out his Moltres, used overheat but missed, I took out about half of its HP, then it hit me with a critical hit overheat and knocked out Cresselia, and used air slash to knock out the rest of my pokemon.
