You always EV for level 50. This means 8 EVs = 1 stat point after the first 4 EVs in a stat. This also means that for something that normally runs 252 HP and 252 in Atk, Spe, or SpA, you instead use 244 HP, 4 Def, 4 SpD (as seen below)
Former record: 59
New record: 86
Dragonite (M) - Choice Band
Adamant - Multiscale
244 HP 252 Atk 4 Def 4 SpD 4 Spe
Definitely the MVP, the amount of damage Dragonite can inflict is intense, and he can also take a good amount of hits, especially with Multiscale. In pursuing my record, I used Extremespeed once
but I can't come up with anything that would be more useful in general. The only things that took him down consistently were Jynx and Latias.
Latios (M) - Choice Specs
Timid - Levitate
252 SpA 252 Spe 4 HP
Good in the late game, but he often comes up short if I'm forced to use him early on. He outspeeds a ton, which makes him a great partner for Dragonite, and his defensive typing served surprisingly well for things like taking Fighting attacks for Magnezone.
Magnezone (N) - Leftovers
Timid - Magnet Pull
252 SpA 252 Spe 4 HP
Hidden Power (Fire 70)
Magnezone surprised me in its ability to take out things that threaten Dragonite and Latios other than Steel types, namely Rock and Ice types. I feel like I'm missing something when I use it, but it works rather effectively at what its meant to accomplish. In hindsight, it might not actually be benefitting so much from Magnet Pull, so I'll pay close attention to that aspect and I might try using a Sturdy Magnezone instead, feedback would help.
And the unfortunate match that ended my streak, number 87. (Which happens to be my lucky number T.T) Fast forward, Dragonite has taken out the first 2 Pokémon and he has low health, Cresselia comes in, Dragonite hurts itself and faints, Cresselia uses Calm Mind and keeps boosting and outstalls Latios and Magnezone with Rest. I almost beat it with a critical hit but it was still at about 15% so it had enough time to use Rest again. I ended up attacking it about 35 times but sadly I didn't get that second timely critical hit
