I've been using Scarf Salamence like pretty much everybody else. Its an excellent Pokemon to use. Yes, I agree it lacks the raw initial power but Salamence builds up momentum like really quickly. After 1 kill, its attack stat hits like 550 something. Like I said in my earlier post, its all about creating the win condition for Salamence to function. If you can create the win condition Salamence can easily crush a unwary team. So, I got to like 1320, wanted to hit 1350, but lost an easy battle due to a misplay so whatever.
The basic idea around the team is pound the opponents team with Dialga throwing around Draco Meteor's and Thunder. Usually, even if the opponent has a Xatu, I practically can assure myself Stealth Rock. I use Dialga mostly as a suicide lead. Nearly every match I get at least one kill from Dialga and at least 1-2 lose over 50% of their health. Trying to switch around an LO Dialga is the stupidest thing ever (unless you are another LO Dialga lead). Just sac whatever mon, and revenge kill it. Once, Dialga is dead, phase 1 is over. After that I go into defense mode with Ghost Arceus, Kyogre and Ferrothorn sponging hits and laying Spikes. Palkia is often used as a pivot to get several important switch-ins. The main idea in phase 2 is to get down Spikes and take down whatever Steels the opponent has. This is not too difficult to be frank. Once the steels are down, I usually sac Ferrothorn (idc about Ogre) bring in Mence on a weakened mon. Its basically check mate. I already outlined this in the earlier post.
