So I was thinking about whether or not I should bump the thread with another low record, and then I decided to. Feel free to not include this in the records.
75 streak in Single Subway this this team:
Jolteon / Volt Absorb / Modest @ Choice Specs: Thunderbolt / Volt Switch / HP Ice 70 / Shadow Ball
Togekiss / Serene Grace / Timid @ Lum Berry: Flash / Toxic / Roost / Charm
Suicune / Pressure / Bold @ Leftovers: Calm Mind / Substitute / Surf / Rest
How I made the team:
I went like this. I was just looking at what I have in my boxes, and then semi-randomly trying to pair things up and see how well they do, so for the first 5 sets of 7, that was what I did. Semi-randomly, just because I still try to make the team function and have some sort of synergy, but otherwise, it was pretty much whatever I had in my box. I tried Choice Scarf Reckless Staraptor for the first time in this streak too (it was ok, but when paired with Jolteon, the team's kind of frail). Tried other usual things like LO/Specs Latios, Metagross, Scarf Haxorus, Scarf Chandelure, Trick Scarf Rotom (with attacks), DD Scrafty, Eviolite Porygon 2, SD Scizor, etc.
After 35 streak or so I decided to just stick with this one, just because it seems to be doing ok. The Togekiss used to be a crippler set (with Twave instead of Toxic), but then I figured I'll try something and make it a Toxic staller + crippler for Suicune and see how that goes, and it turned out to be decent.
I knew the streak wasn't going to last too long when about 1/3 of the battles after 49 relied heavily on Suicune being able to set up without help from Togekiss (i.e it fainted already). Synergy-wise, obviously Togekiss takes the Ground attacks for Jolteon while Jolteon absorbs the electric ones for Togekiss, and Suicune takes physical hits well and Ice moves aimed at Togekiss decently.
How I lost:
Jolteon vs Snorlax.
1. Volt Switch to Togekiss, Earthquake no damage.
2. Charm, Belly Drum (guess I should have flashed, heh... I don't usually look at subway pokemon table... I dunno, probably should, but w/e).
3. Flash, Double-Edge Togekiss faints. Snorlax Sitrus activates.
4. Suicune Sub. Double-Edge breaks sub.
5. Suicune Sub. Double-Edge breaks sub.
6. Suicune Sub. Double-Edge breaks sub.
7. Suicune Sub. Double-Edge breaks sub.
8. Surf did not KO, Double-Edge KOs both Snorlax and Suicune.
Jolteon vs Vaporeon (looks like I still have a chance depending on the last pokemon!)
9. TBolt KO.
Jolteon vs Glaceon
10. TBolt, slither of health left for Glaceon. Blizzard KOs.
I probably will think about a more well-planned team next time, but it was fun.
It's hard to have a decent non-crippling team without Suicune. :P
O yeah, recently I've tried out Cobalion @ Leftovers: Calm Mind / Sub / Flash Cannon / Rest (i.e. "same moveset" as Suicune)... It's not bad, but Suicune was still better I think.
@atsync: I think you should try it out and see how it goes. Off the top of my head, I can see you will have probably some issue vs Curse (and maybe even non-Curse?) Ferrothorn. I was thinking maybe Heatran might give trouble too if it burns Cloyster (or Cloyster fainted already) and outspeeds Metagross. Similarly quiver dance Volcarona will be deadly too if Cloyster is dead already or sash is broken (without any Shell Smashes).
Of course, most of the time Cloyster will have one Smash by the time its sash is broken, so probably most of the time it's fine, but priority moves, quick claw, sand, focus sash, and brightpowder/lax incense will prevent Cloyster sweeps. Latios and Metagross are good backups, but plenty of things can still threaten the combo.
