Wouldn't Trick Room be an amazing strategy to use because you save bst because your speed is low.
Is it me or does this bit contradict itself? You can't use ubers but you can use ubers?
Budgetmons is a meta where you can use every pokémon (except Ubers). It seems relatively normal, however...
There's a twist.
The BST of every single one of your pokémon combined needs to be Equal or Lower than 2300. This way, if you want to use, say, Arceus and Palkia, your four remaining pokémon will need to have less than 400BST in total.
I've found that Purrloin is extremely good value at 281 BST while being able to put the hurt on unprepared teams.

Using this as a lead really helps as most people don't expect you to send this in first, especially if you run a weather setter on your team (as a trap of course).
If they send out a mon with no offensive pressure, start with a sub as they usually try and status you or switch.
If they send out a mon with offensive pressure, use Twave before Swagger as then you're in maximum hax mode.
Most people assume this is filler but it is definitely not.
I can see how that Volcarona set could be devastating. Sub'd and +1 would make it basically invulnerable. I haven't used it in a hwile, but I'm guessing destiny bond is blocked by substitutes?
Also, would a FEAR Aron w/ Sand support take down that Volcarona?
I've been using that exact same set but with leftovers over lum berry. Truly a destructive force when backed up by support from Vulpix and Natu, especially since Heatran is rarely seen.

You see this?
This single-handedly destroys 90% of Budgetmons teams.
Ability to setup on the most common fillers (Ferroseed/Bronzor/etc) while being able to sub against lead smeargle and QD up is amazing, but the best thing about it is the fact Ditto can't transform if you use substitute!
You can easily switch on a filler, sub up, QD one or two times, and then destroy the opposing team with bug buzz+fiery dance. Seriously, use Volcarona, or something like Haxorus that can use approximately the same strategy.
