Super Double Subway Streak: 143
I've gone n got myself a new high record and my personal best :)
This is using the team i was asking questions about few days back and i've been playing none stop with it last few days. At first i didnt think it would work due to some low streaks but in the end my luck came through and i got used to the team and ploughed on.
So onto the team:
politoad@ Focus sash
what a great little lead, chosen due to only really lead for a rain team lol. its way bulkier than i would have thought and have to admit i like him now haa! The move set is simple, HP for amazing stab, surf to double hit and activate absolb bulb, ice beam for dragons and toxic is just for when i cant take something down quickly so the passive damage helps, also good for stat abusers specially CM or any other SPD boosting moves.
Manectric @ Choice Scarf
A great abuser of drizzle 100% acc stabed thunders coming off a base 105 special attack?? yes please! Again its simple, i went for the scarf cause wanted something quick from the start and he out speeds all the standard subway pokes. He is amazing due to he can take the electric attacks aimed at toad and toad can OHKO most ground types stopping manectric. The moves again are basic, the only moves i use are Thunder and VS when needed, flamethrower has a few uses but doesnt hit hard enough and SB was only used once i think but that was to take out a exeggutor before it could get TR in. I'm going to try this team again soon and this is main moveset i'm looking at improving, was thinking about HP Ice or Fight, or maybe switcheroo any ideas?
The Back up:
Ludicolo @ Absorb Bulb
Focus Blast (should i replace with ice beam?)
This poke is just amazing, loved him since the Mayors one on the GC lol, and glad i finally got around to using one :). Once again its standard so wont go into detail. I chose GD due to liked fact it regained health and since none my team are bulky or have any means of recovery its the only way :), also best way to handle lanturn. Fake out is important due to lets me take out a threat and let toad use surf to activate my bulb, ludi also switches in when manectric VS out and takes the earthquakes and toads surfs. Once got the +1 its amazing!
and in truth most the battles only involved these 3, the amount teams the front two swept was unreal, Its so fun getting free stat boosts in doubles and wiping the floor with them lol. so my fourth poke is the cleaner-up-a lol, and it is obviously....
Scizor @ Metal Coat
Again its standard, i really didnt wana use scizor cause hes on most my teams and bored using him but he does the job so cant really complain. When i go again i'm going to replace swords dance due to was never used so guna look into a new move there, likely be AA or Night slash, possibly roost due to fact coulda used that match i lost lol.
So how the team lost...going from memory due to it was early this morning it happend (need to learn to be calm and patiant when lost and save vid ha)
toad and man vs frozel and Vileplume
Frozel Waterfalls man CH and man faints
Toad Ice beams Vile for less than i thought but decent amount
Vileplume absorbs light
i switch in ludicolo
Frozel Protects and i GD him
Toad Toxic vile (miss click :@)
Toad KO'd by Solar beam
I switch Scizor in
Frozel Protects and i once agian GD him
Vile uses some posion attack and KOs Ludicolo
Scizor Swords dances
Scizor BP Frozel
Frozel Waterfalls leaves me with around low red HP
Vile finishes me off with stored power
was fustrating! tiny bit haxy and a bad match by me :(, Why i shouldnt overplay the game and get tired lol. It was such a winnable match aswell. If i got my thunder off i would have won and if he didnt get lucky with the double protect i would have likely won. My miss click also cost me :( o well it was a fun run which brought me my personal best this year and really like the team so looking for improvements and defo guna try it again soon ( duno when tho due to arkham city and football manager out this month whoop whoop)
Cheers for reading people :)
