Heya, first time poster here. I'm Ash (no, seriously, my name is Ash) and I've played pokemon on and off since gen 1, though I only recently got in to the Battle Subway and making competitive pokemon (though I've never had a battle with another person yet). I've been breeding tons of pokemon for the subway and really enjoy making up different teams to play with. My fav pokemon for the subway is timid Gengar @ focus sash as lead, thanks to destiny bond he can 2 for 1 most teams leaving me with major advantage. My other favorite is jolly Infernape @ focus sash with Fake Out, Close Combat, U-turn and Flare Blitz. Fake Out is an epic move which lets me check if I can kill their pokemon with a Close Combat. Close Combat's cost goes away if I U-turn as well which is handy (and if I U-turn out and swap in later, I can Fake out again, gotta love recycling free damage). With Infernape's Blaze ability, if I get sash'ed to 1 HP, Flare Blitz become really damn powerful and can kill most opponents. Usually I run this with bulky pokemon that cover Infernape's weaknesses so I don't take much damage upon swapping in with u-turn (such as Ferrothorn, Garchomp, etc). Okay, on to my streak and team The member of my team were - Volcorona (Nickname Pending) @ Focus Sash Flame Body Modest EVs:6/0/0/252/0/252 Fiery Dance Quiver Dance Physic Bug Buzz Awesome lead that can sweep teams if it can get off a Quiver Dance or can luck in to a boost from Fiery Dance. Physic is there to get rid of Fighting threats to my team like Conkeldurr and Machamp. Ferrothorn (Auntie Dot) @ Leftovers Iron Barbs Impish 255/0/100/0/155/0 (I was a noob when I made this guy, thats why the EVs are off) Toxic Power Whip Leech Seed Protect I know, its a bit of a different built to most of the Ferrothorns I've seen posted on this thread, but I like it. Leech Seed is the move I primarily use, as well as Protect for scouting and effectivly doubling the effects of leftovers, leech seed and toxic. Power Whip is there for killing water types, who can otherwise mess up my team. Covers Chomp's Ice weakness and Volcorona's rock/water weakness. Garchomp (Chompers) @ Life Orb Sand Veil Jolly 6/252/0/0/0/252 Outrage Fire Fang Earthquake Stone Edge Pretty basic build for a Chomp, covers Ferrothorn's fire weakness and Volcorona's rock weakness Overall its a decent team, I mostly built it because I had just finished making up a Volcorona and wanted to test it out, he was better than I thought, though the rock weakness can be quite an annoyance. Right now I'm trying to come up with a good team using a Gengar lead. I've put Garchomp in too and recently made a Metagross which is quite fun to play with (I'm a giant fan of any pokemon with a priority, and on a Metagross it is quite powerful). Any suggestions for a Gengar team or the Volcorona team would be greatly appreciated. :) -- Haha, managed to get a slightly higher streak the day after i posted about my first streak. Gengar @ Focus Sash Levitate Timid 6/0/0/252/0/252 Shadow Ball Energy Ball Thunder Bolt Destiny Bond Garchomp (Chompers) @ Life Orb Sand Veil Jolly 6/252/0/0/0/252 Outrage Fire Fang Earthquake Stone Edge Metagross @ Leftovers Clear Body Adamant 252/252/6/0/0/0 Meteor Mash Bullet Punch Zen Headbutt Brick Break Sorry, its a bit hard to see as my laptop's webcam isn't that good, but it's a 98 streak. Mostly was trying Metagross out, to be honest, he isn't even that good, just a tank pokemon with good typing that has a priority. Considering trying it with Wide Lens because I had some problems with Meteor Mash and Zen Headbutt missing. How I lost - Battle VS Nurse Saisune Nurse Saisune sends out Cryogonal Meep sends out Gengar Meep recalls Gengar, Meep sends out Metagross Cryogonal used Icy Wind, its not very effective Metagross recovers with leftovers (on 169/180 hp) Cryogonal used Hail, it started to hail Metagross used Meteor Mash, it was super effective Cryogonal hung on with Focus Sash Metagross is buffeted by the hail Metagross recovers with Leftovers Metagross used Bullet Punch Cryogonal fainted Metagross is buffeted by the hail Metagross recovers with Leftovers Nurse Saisune sends out Marowak This is where I made a mistake and didn't swap out to Gengar, I thought Metagross could survive a Ground move, apparently not. Marowak used Earthquake, its super effective Metagross fainted Marowak is buffeted by the hail Meep sends out Chompers Chompers used Outrage (Marowak is like on like 1 HP) Marowak used Outrage, its super effective (fffuuuuuuu-) Chompers fainted Marowak is buffeted by the hail Marowak fainted Meep sends out Gengar Nurse Saisune sends out Emboar Gengar used Shadow Ball (does about 3/5) Emboar used Substitute Emboar's Salac Berry raised it's speed (cry) Emboar made a substitute The hail stopped Emboar used Flamethrower Gengar hung on with Focus Sash Gengar used Shadow Ball Emboar's substitute faded Emboar used Flamethrower Meep lost the game. Aw well, I didn't quite make it to 100 (which was my goal), but I got pretty damn close with 98, perhaps next time.
