I only used Lucario for my first run, I don't switch. I say Lucario/Lapras because 311 is my longest streak. I then had a 91-0 run with Lapras, switched to Gyarados and lost. I used Gyardos and had two HORRIBLE runs(really bad luck and the wrong moves on Gyarados). My first full Lapras run was 227. My second Lapras run is currently 147(I think we have similar playtime issues). Yes, Hippo has the new moves you mentioned. Fortunately, I can Yawn Clear Bodies, 4/5 are weak to Garchomp's EQ, Regice hasn't been a problem, either. I wasn't going to write up my Jolteon/Garchomp/Gyarados team unless I was able achieve a top 30 streak. But, since you asked. Jolteon @Focus Sash 149/67/79/123/135/200 Yawn Substitute Flash Charm Garchomp @Lum Berry Substitue Swords Dance Earthquake Outrage Gyarados @Life Orb/Leftovers Dragon Dance Waterfall Earthquake Taunt The basics, use the fastest Yawn in the BT to set up Garchomp. Much of the time, Jolteon cripples the opposing lead. About half of the time, it faints after it's done enough. I'm then usually able to get in three Sword Dances and sweep. So far, from battle 50, Garchomp has KO'd all pokemon, except one. The cool thing is, if Jolteon faints on turn 2, Garchomp comes in for free and sweeps. If Jolteon makes it to turn 3, it's over. Garchomp gets to eventually gets to face an opponent that can't do much to it. The biggest problem is, some of the strategies that Hippo renders useless, because of SS, have to be dealt with.
