    A common Psych Up user on minimize Blissey/Chansey is Calm Mind Suicune (potentially with Chesto Rest). I have not tried it myself, though I have battled and watched said teams (involving Shuckle, Chansey, Suicune) in action before. It will probably work ok in the subway, but not like...

    If you can wait until closer to the end of September when I probably will have more time, sure, but you can probably find a female DW dratini elsewhere sooner than that.

    I got my Dream World female dratini from Dream World in BW1. I can possibly trade, but my current schedule of availability for trade is pretty horrible as I'm fairly busy with other things like work (I only play pokemon when I'm resting, and I'm not going to use my rest time to trade). I got to...

    Jolly Life Orb Mamoswine was actually something I thought of and tested out when I was preparing for VGC Nats and Worlds, and even though Sash was the more popular set (back then anyway), I liked Life Orb a lot more, after testing both. The thing is, Mamoswine isn't OHKO'd by that many things...

    I wouldn't even give Toxic Boost Zangoose a try, to be honest. It is at an unfortunate middling speed which makes it hard to sweep a lot. I used Jolly Quick Feet Ursaring (long ago), and I'd imagine even that works better because of much better speed even if it doesn't attack super hard without...

    Ah, ok. As long as you have a Poison Heal Gliscor, it's all good. Otherwise, Hypercutter Gliscor is probably ok, but in that case, you'd want sub/roost instead of protect/sub... I doubt it will be as effective though. ... Roost would require previous Gens if you do not have BW2 move tutor...

    Life Orb Starmie is fine as well. You will less likely need to make switches, although I think it is good practice to try out Choice Specs Starmie, as Choice items actually really forces you to make decisions on switches. While Life Orb makes decisions easier, it also gets fewer KOs while...

    If you are up for changing your team entirely, then I'd recommend one with more defensive synergy - as in a team where team members can somewhat easily switch in and out on predicted moves that your switch in will resist. This is most easily done by having a Dragon type, a Water Type, and a...

    @Flaming Facepalm: Here are my thoughts: For starters, there are sort of two main types/categories of teams that do well in Single Battle Subway: 1) Crippling teams 2) Non-crippling teams that make use of good offensive and defensive synergy 1) Crippling teams will involve 1 or 2 pokemon for...

    I'm at 70 with that team now. I'm a bit surprised I haven't lost yet, but I don't know if I should be (70 isn't that great yet after all). I was thinking I'd for sure need some sort of priority to make the team more well rounded. ... something like the CB Scizor Jumpman's using :P I guess, but...

    I thought about Band Scizor and changing Landorus to Scarf, but I did not do it, because I see little point to using Jolly Landorus-T if it is scarfed. I don't have an Adamant one. :P I suppose I could try out Scarf Scizor.

    Landorus-T is pretty nice. That said, I have used the exact same set with an incarnate Landorus (which is as easy as using reveal glass to change it back, so convenient), and that actually might even have been better because of the number of extra things it outspeeds. Here I get way more power...

    I thought about using Dodrio before, but the few damage calculations I did (I don't even remember what they were) were not very impressive. I think it will be difficult to set up even if all 508 EVs are used into defenses and HP. Like, you sort of have to bank on 1) full paralyses, 2)first...

    The Shuckle I used was Stealth Rock / Struggle Bug / Power Split / Final Gambit. I think I used Flash over Stealth Rock for a while, but Stealth Rock is definitely a good assurance for your set upper. Struggle Bug is great though, doing minimal damage but makes shuckle not care about taunt as...

    Interesting team and streaks! But yeah, that PP problem is huge I think for mono-attack Glalie to function extremely well. But wow, you have some persistence getting this going 5 times! If it was something else like DDnite, sure, but Moody is such a slow way to set up, so props for that! I'm...

    Black & White Battle Subway Records (now with gen. 4 records!)

    Yeah, you're right about Regirock. I think the Careful Leftovers Regirock one is pretty much autoloss for my team. The others I can still maybe stall out PP and set up on full paralysis turns (which Dragonite is actually pretty good at doing). It's certainly a reason why I think suicune is...

    I don't think I've ever had problems with Latias/Latios. For what I know (i.e. if I were using that team today), I most likely would Twave. Then switch if it used Trick (likely switching to Volcarona). If it used Draco Meteor instead, I'd just let my puppy faint and either Volcarona or Dragonite...

    Hi DrDimentio, I remember you! You had some pretty good streaks going. As for Suicune/Volcarona core, that sounds like something I have done before... Let's see, Oh here it is! But heh, that was not a very high streak (only 84, with Flamethrower / HP Rock / QD/ Sub Volcarona). I did much better...

    When we talk about Pokemon/teams "drawing" certain types of attacks, we are merely talking about type weaknesses/resistances/immunities. For example, Whimsicott is weak to fire, ice, and bug, while it resists water, grass, and electric, and so Whimsicott draws fire, ice, and bug attacks, while...

    I am trying something else now (yeah, I do this a lot). Something slightly more similar to what I used in the past. Whimsicott / Prankster / Bold @ Focus Sash - Taunt / Encore / Charm / Cotton Spore Rotom-H / Levitate / Bold @ Choice Scarf - Trick / Thunder Wave / Flash / Sunny Day Metagross /...
