Hi all! I've been a lurker to this website for quite some time! First I would like to take a moment to thank you guys for the guides and useful information about each Pokemon in each tier! It's helped me SO much!

I saw another post that was using a very similar team. With over 600 wins. I was surprised when I saw it as I made this team before even coming to the site. I am hoping my team can ultimately out do the other similar team.
Blaziken -Starts with Rotom-W (a more bulky version) at his side. Blaziken is a power house and with wide lens can use hi jump kick and stone edge alot better then before. I tried this build with earthquake over stone edge but stone edge was used more, and saved me more then earthquake ever did. Blaziken sets up with protect and gets the speed boost. Works wonders save 130 base speed pokemon, which take 2 boosts to out-speed. With his high damage STAB attacks he can obliterate nearly any non-study/focus sash Pokemon that are weak to him. He can even OHKO some with neutral damage.
Rotom-W -Fantastic partner to Blaziken, with powerful STAB water and electric moves, protect (I can use this when Blaziken protects to do some effective scouting) and hidden power ice for those pesky x4 dragons you see everywhere, and the occasional Gliscor, Rotom holds his own with the boosted defesive stats, and outspeeds who he needs to. Rotom checks Blaziken very well and they can kill most everything just the 2 of them. With some rare exceptions which i'll go into in my team issues section.
Latios -Great choice specs user. Amazing moveset pool. Near-perfect coverage. Basically setup for a revenge killer WITH scizor. I opted to use energy ball as ive lost several times to water/ground pokemon with ice attacks. The only issue Latios has is the rare 2v3 where i have to choose what he gets stuck with... Usually pick Dragon Pulse if that's the case due to its universally great coverage for at least neutral damage.
Scizor -The best Pokemon. Period! While I do LOVE Scizor as my favorite Pokemon, I am SO happy that she's actually great in my team! Arguably the best revenge killer in the game! Mostly use bullet punch, but I find myself using Bug Bite quite often as well, as the rest of my team doesn't have much for pychic types. I'm thinking of passing Aerial Ace for Pursuit... But the never miss of Aerial Ace seems like it could be better... But my team does have a blatant lack of offense vs psychics and no super effective attacks vs single type ghosts... so idk... What do you think?
While I don't know all the trainers pokemon by heart, there are really 2 types of trainers that really hamper my team. Psychic trainers, especially trick room. And Legendaries. I've been lucky to have less psychic trainers with ghost types so far. But one one streak I got 5/7 trainers were veteran. 2 with legendaries. I was down to 1-2 pokemon every battle.
I hate Zapdos. He's way too bulky and eat Scizor alive with heat wave. Rotom and Blaziken can't OHKO it either... I nearly lost to a double team Zapdos in that 7 streak. (Blitz got a lucky stone edge off)
Pure fighting teams can be a pain too, at least until I get Scizor and Latios out. Then I (hopefully) breeze through them. there's always the scare of Scrafty to my latios, and when i'm choiced into psychic he renders me useless.
Delay/Defensive teams... I nearly lost, 1v1, Scizor vs Cradily. Like a retard I let it stockpile 3 times and my Scizor was having issues even with bullet punch. So lucky Scizor is x2 resistant to grass, otherwise that would have been the end. Don't remember the rest of the team but I do remember they were all defensive pokemon. Also I lump ghost types into here. Dusknoir, Cofigrigas, spiritomb, they can all be a royal pain in the behind. Especially in trick room.
My worst trainers would have to be veterans, and Psychics, no question. With the rest of the trainers I find that Rotom and Latios can take nearly all of them with the help of Blaziken and Scizor ready to jump in. Sometimes Psychics are easy due to bug bite but more often then not there is at least 1 ghost type which can be a pain. Gengar is destroyed by Latios, but also faster... So if his shadow ball kills Latios i'm in serious trouble. I usually have to kill him with a flare blitz blaziken, lame I know.
Well that's it for now. I recorded my 70th battle, but i'm not quite sure how to upload it... Any comments would be appreciated! Game on!
