Even if it's an in-game, you should still be aware of the natures, although, you can still relax a little.

What's with Brick Break and Secret Power on Golem? Starmie also doesn't need Psychic when it already has that BoltBeam coverage and some STAB on the side.

Anyways, Double-Edge is an option on Golem in the case that you have Rock Head as your ability.

Yeah, well, I don't have Rock Head... and I also don't have Natural Cure on Starmie, which is why I was contemplating putting Skill Swap on it. Only realised that AFTER I'd put T-bolt and Ice Beam on Starmie...
I will put Explosion on Golem as well. And I'll also put Leftovers on Sceptile when I can as well.
So, so far, I've got Substitute instead of Slash on Ninjask and Shadow Ball on Slaking. Anything else I should do? Except natures of course...

So, Subseeding Sceptile, and then Slash stays on Ninjask? And I don't really want to get rid of Dragon Claw considering it's quite a rare move in-game.

Silver Wind>Aerial Ace>Slash

That's what I think anyway. Bug moves always are cool considering they are in their rarity D:

Yeah, I spose. *sigh* I guess I'll be re-breeding Ninjask then. And if I do that, will the egg still have Aerial Ace, or because its a TM it won't carry it on. Actually, I need to get a female Nincada/Ninjask first...
Well, I dunno. I guess I could leave Dragon Claw there instead of Thunderpunch, and have Ninjask with Aerial Ace and Silver Wind... but I can't get Aerial Ace to carry on... this is quite confusing really. Please hold while I see if I still have Aerial Ace on another game so I can trade it over...

Ninjask cannot get Aerial Ace by breeding, but it can get Silver Wind. Like *Ryan* said above, Silver Wind has a priority over Aerial Ace, so breed for that.

You could, of course, try to pass a Sub to Sceptile and Seed from there, though once the Sub is broken, there goes your strategy. If you want to keep SubSeeding Sceptile, put Protect in place of where Substitute would be on Ninjask, since you still get the Speed boost. It would be great to pass a Sub, though, and you need that Sub to Swords Dance.
