Yesterday, I went back to my second best team Hitmontop, Latios, Hydreigon, Metagross
that I got to 179 with on the first try (Iīve changed Hydra to DM and Chople).
OK, I donīt believe in coincidence when it comes to Subway...how come that the AI always pulls out a counter-team of some sorts everytime I continue my challenge after saving the game and switching it off? No wonder I always seem to lose during the first 2 sets the next day I play, which gets on my nerves a lot (spending the whole day before winning only to lose after waking up)...
Sorry for being an asshole, but itīs plain unfair fluffy if you get to 500 or 800 with your team with two Ice weaks, only because you donīt face Ice Trainers or Aboma+Snow Cloak leads, seriously. I woke up and the first battle today (#29) was against a Worker with an Abomasnow+Glaceon lead
, followed by Walrein & Vanilluxe. I somehow managed to win 1-0 if only because I didnīt miss Glaceon. Wonder what happened 15 minutes later? I faced another Worker at battle #39 with the same lead duo
of Glaceon+Abomasnow. This time, of course, I wasnīt lucky enough to hit...I actually missed Glaceon 3 times in a row (CC, Bullet & Thrower) and lost 3-0.
This game plain sucks.
Donīt get me wrong. I know how good your team is and how it owns 98% of the Subway. But the Ice Worker weak, thereīs no way to fix that, so you just play hoping you wonīt face those often and that they donīt start with Abomasnow or Hail Froslass and you donīt miss.
I donīt know what to do. Iīve used a Machamp, but even a Jolly Scarf is outsped by Froslass. I thought about using Aura Sphere, but it also wonīt be able to hit Froslass and Luca is outsped by Cryo as well. Also you canīt do a thing against QC Glaceon that will OHKO, CH or freeze you and avoid your attacks. Ice teams are a nightmare. Maybe I should teach Specs Latios Sunny Day or Rain Dance or something lol.
Also I lost at #156 yesterday because I didnīt attack the correct Pokémon turn 1, my fault. Now I believe I only got that far because I faced just 1 Ice Worker until then. The team had almost 0 trouble, there was maybe one close battle against a legendary trainer (Iīve faced like 10 of them) and one against a Harlequin.
#156 vs Pilot Artemas:
Moltres, Staraptor, Thundurus, Crobat
1. Fake Out Tres, Dragon Pulse Raptor, Raptor fainted, Tres flinched.

2. Top Sucker Punch Thund, Thund Dark Pulse, Latios at 60/156, Latios Dragon Pulse, Thund fainted, Moltres Air Slash, Latios fainted.

3. Moltres Protect, Top Sucker failed, Bat X-Scissor, Hydra at 73/167, Hydra Dark Pulse, Tres protected.
4. Hydra Protect, Moltres double Protect, Top Sucker failed, Bat Scissor, Hydra protected.
5. Top Sucker Tres, Bat Scissor, Hydra fainted, Tres Air Slash, Sash.
- me Meta
6. Top Sucker Bat, Bat Cross Poison, Top fainted, Tres Heat Wave, CH!, Meta fainted.
Yes I misplayed, but still, Iīve put Occa Berry on Metagross alongside Rock Slide exactly for these kind of situations. But hell no, in the 1 battle in 100 that I actually have to rely on Occa, the AI says FU and CHs Metagross. Thanks you.
By the way:
177spA Thundurus Dark Pulse vs 130 sD Latios = 82-98 dmg = 52-63% dmg
177spA Moltres Air Slash vs vs 130 sD Latios = 58-69 dmg = 37-44% dmg
177spA Moltres Air Slash vs 130 sD Hitmontop = 116-138 = 92-100% dmg
Why in the world did Moltres attack Latios instead of Top turn 2
and then double protect? I just donīt get the AI...
Donīt take this post too seriously, Iīm just being overly emotional about the game Iīm rather addicted to.
Anyway, good luck everyone, be strong, donīt let the Subway drag you down to the painful level Iīm currently at.
