252 SpA Tapu Lele Hidden Power Fire vs. 252 HP / 252+ SpD Ferrothorn: 92-112 (50.8 - 61.8%) -- 96.5% chance to 2HKO after Leftovers recoveryHello again. Here's another.. ahh screw it, you know by now.
If it seems like I'm a little irritated, that's because I am. I not going to go to much detail into it, but I do not feel like having my streaks being on the board anymore.
Anyways, let's get to this streak.
This team is hacked. Do not put this on the leaderboard, or any of my teams in general. And since people do not like irrelevant detail, I will make the explanations on why I used the Pokemon simple.
Envy [Choice Scarf] (Tapu Lele) @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Psychic Surge
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
IVs: 0 Atk
- Dazzling Gleam
- Hidden Power [Fire]
Yea. Shiny Tapu Lele. Great. With a Choice Scarf, a Timid nature, 252 Speed EVs and its great 130 Special Attack and 252 Special Attack EVs along with Psychic Terrain it summons thanks to Psychic Surge, it can abuse its Psychic-type move, Psychic, allowing it to run wild. Dazzling Gleam simply breaks Sturdy, Focus Sashes, and hits Dragons hard. Moonblast, while it hits only one target, it is also more powerful and breaks Dragons like Garchomp, Mega Latios, and Dark-types like Tyranitar. Lastly, the choice of Hidden Power went to Fire. Otherwise, this team has no possible way to deal with Ferrothorn other than directing all attacks to it. It does not like dealing with Steel-types like Mega Aggron and Ferrothorn. And since it somewhat does not do well against Ghost-types, I considered putting Shadow Ball over Hidden Power Fire. But then again, I need someone to deal with Ferrothorn.
LandMaster (Landorus) @ Life Orb
Ability: Sheer Force
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
IVs: 0 Atk / 30 Def
- Earth Power
- Sludge Bomb
- Hidden Power [Ice]
Landorus-I with Sheer Force is a ridiculously powerful Pokemon with its trademark Earth Power and other secondary effect attacks. A Timid nature and 252 Speed EVs makes Landorus-I super fast as well as super powerful with 252 Special Attack EVs. With a Life Orb, it can gain extra damage ignoring the Life Orb recoil damage that it would usually get. (But it still gets recoil from HP Ice) Earth Power is its main tool and dents through Rhyperior and Suicune. Sludge Bomb hits Fairy-types and Grass-types such as Whimsicott and Lurantis, while also hitting Virizion and Florges. Hidden Power Ice hits Dragons like Mega Garchomp and other Landorus. Protect because Doubles. Landorus does not have the best bulk though, and Water- and Ice-types usually always carry Ice-type coverage. So, Vaporeon, Vanilluxe, and Glaceon would be able to easily deal with Landorus.
Deception [Doubles Set] (Aegislash) @ Leftovers
Ability: Stance Change
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpA
IVs: 0 Atk
- Flash Cannon
- Shadow Ball
- Wide Guard
- King's Shield
Aegislash is one of the best Pokemon to use in the game and it also does very well in the Battle Tree. Its typing defensively is amazing and also has one of the more interesting abilities as well in Stance Change. Flash Cannon and Shadow Ball are its only attacks, being STAB Attacks with the same BP. Wide Guard blocks Heat Wave from Mega Charizard Y, Rock Slide from Mega Swampert or Tyranitar, Blizzard from Abomasnow and Articuno, and Earthquake from a lot of different Pokemon. Lastly, King's Shield. I do not even have to explain. But I'm going to. As a protecting move, it not only buys Aegislash a turn of Leftovers recovery, but it also lowers the attacks of physical threats if their attack was gonna make contact. Aegislash's 0 Speed IVs and Quiet nature making it super slow is, no pun intended, a double edged sword. It might keep Aegislash in shield forme until it attacks but it also means, well, it's slow so that means a lot of Pokemon could potentially try to KO it. But it is very hard to kill, which is why Aegislash is something to consider.
Rampage [Doubles] (Gyarados-Mega) @ Gyaradosite
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
- Dragon Dance
Mega Gyarados is one of my favorite Mega Pokemon to use, even if it was unconventional. It's just fun. A Jolly nature and 252 Attack EVs and 252 Speed EVs makes Mega Gyarados super fast, especially after setting up with a Dragon Dance, which is the main niche of this set. Intimidate as usual, is a great ability to use in Doubles, which lowers the physical prowess of certain physical threats like Slaking and other Gyarados. Mold Breakser does not do much for Mega Gyarados but it does shut down Storm Drain and Water Absorb and other abilities. Waterfall and Crunch are Mega Gyarados' main STAB choices, with decent coverage alongside each other. Protect because yadda yadda yadda. Also, a Gyaradosite is required to make Gyarados Mega Evolve. It does not like Electric-types like Raikou especially, and Grass-types aren't usually the friendliest either. Also, Mega Alakazam outspeeds Mega Gyarados even after a Dragon Dance.
This team broke through 100 wins so, I guess that's cool.
On the Singles side, I'm not gonna lie, the Pokemon I am using are not genned, or at least I don't think they are, but I'm still not going to have them on the leaderboard. Sure, it might put me in the Top 5, but meh. It's just a game.

It was strongly recommended against running that set by multiple people for a reason.
I hope this is the last time I'll say this. Using genned pokemon is the least of the reasons your credibility on a 1k streak will not be accepted. Be upset, sure, but no unnecessary drama, please. You are laying in the very bed you made. Dismissiveness and passive aggression isn't going to alleviate any of that.
I care because there was nothing dissuading you from passing off a 500+ win streak as genuine. You then spoke casually of going for 1000 wins in singles. It's pretty reasonable to expect this from you in the near future.Alright, Repto. Who cares if I do not have the knowledge to even get to a thousand wins? You know I'm never gonna get to a thousand and why the hell do you think I try to convince people that I reached it?
You advertised something as having a purpose which multiple discord posters informed you it *does not* fulfill that purpose, advice you clearly ignored. Pretending a move provides coverage is not the same as having real coverage. Possibly 2HKOing a wall you hard counter is one thing, but Lele is swatted away and your remaining teammates lack the muscle to finish Ferrothorn off before that can happen.I do not care if the team is flawed. At least Lele has a weapon, what do you want, no weapon? Surely that will fucking solve it of dealing with Ferrothorn. And who cares if I have to double target it? I don't. And you do not have to either.
I care because it obviously was not stopping you from posting them. You had been admonished more than once by your peers for continuing to post streaks involving genned pokemon without bringing attention to that fact, which clearly shows intent to be credited for the streaks, not to mention disregard for the rules. Again your use of hacks is not the biggest problem here; it is your writeups containing buckets of bogus info which portray scenarios that could not have happened and are among the clearest indicators of phony streaks. ie save restoration.Again, who cares if I can't reach high milestones? In fact, I've already DMed NoCheese to remove my streaks solely because you keep bothering me about my illegitimate streaks, which they are. Is that enough to keep you quiet?
One particularly effective way to ensure this is to cease and desist posting illegitimate streaks at all. Continuing to post them while hiding behind a shield of "it's okay because I don't want credit and it's just a game" is not the same, and will not stop your posts from being questioned.Now do me a favor and keep your mouth shut.
Here are some quick insights for your Scizor questions. I've been on-and-off attempting a 200-streak singles run through a team ultimately inspired by Echskiry's two teams (Mimikyu, Kartana, Garchomp and Mimikyu, M-Scizor, Garchomp). I tried the first team for a while but M-Scizor's bulky capabilities were more handy than Kartana's offensive prowess. I am currently using the second team with a little variation to M-Scizor. I know that our teams are different but I think that M-Scizor can play a similar role with your team.Long time no post! I didn't come to post a streak, because I have nothing to show yet, but to ask for some advice. I'm working on the super singles format in the tree, and I want to be able to earn a respectable streak (100 or so) on my Ultra Sun cart before the new games drop, and this is what I'm working with right now:
Greninja (M) @ Life Orb
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
- Ice Beam
- Grass Knot
- Dark Pulse
In many ways, I regard Greninja as the spiritual successor of the Starmie that carried me far into the Battle Subway in gen five, and even back then it was paired with the same team mates as this Greninja. There isn't much to be said about the set itself, it's very self-explanatory.
Scizor (M) @ Scizorite
Ability: Technician -> Technician
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SDef
- Bullet Punch
- Swords Dance
Scizor switches in on many ice types and dragon types as well as grass attacks aimed at Greninja. I used to run Bug Bite over Superpower but reconsidered after reading a lot of posts in this thread, using Superpower provides better coverage against stuff like Ferrothorn and the plethora of bulky normal types in the tree (Snorlax, M-Kangaskhan, etc.). Otherwise it's all standard stuff.
Garchomp (M) @ Dragonium-Z
Ability: Rough Skin
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
- Swords Dance
Sub-Chomp rounds out the team well and switches in on some things neither of the other two want to touch with a ten-foot pole. I used to run a team of DD-Dragonite/Suicune/M-Scizor, but I lost to random things like Magnezone (admittedly with some hax), and Rotom-Frost of all things. I needed an electric immunity it seemed, and it made me reconsider the team in its entirety. I've seen some others use Dragon Claw on Garchomp, but I think the immediate power of Outrage is needed with Jolly, though I hate locking into it without a sub up. Thankfully, it doens't happen very often.
I lost my streak at 59 hilariously to Sina who used Glaceon-3, in a loss involving both getting my Scizor frozen and her getting Snow Cloak hax. :( I know that the team is capable of a longer streak, at least to my goal of 100 wins, since others have cleared 100+ wins with the same team (more or less), so I'm back at it and I just beat Red.
Before proceeding though, I wanted to ask the experts here on whether or not I could fix something with my team before I keep going? My main questions are:
- I've only PP-Up:ed Scizor's Roost; are there any other moves you think I need to PP-Up? None of my mons are going to stall anything out, bar Scizor stalling out some 5 PP moves, most notably Stone Edges and Focus Blasts. Is there any use using any PP-Ups?
- The EV-spreads are super simple, and while both Garchomp and Greninja are pretty self-explanatory, I don't think Scizor's EV:s are optimal. Should I spend more in SDef for example? Are there any useful speed tiers I could hit with some investment?
There's an NPC on the right side of the Battle Tree Area who tells you your highest and ongoing streak numbers for each mode.How does one see what their streak record is in the battle tree? I just lost in super singles in battle #98 and want to post the team, but not sure if the game tells you what your record is.
It's a good idea to get into the habit of saving loses as replays in case you ever want to submit a run that's below your high score.How does one see what their streak record is in the battle tree?
