    Or you could go play the Battle Factory forever and find the exact same information. :v It just saves time,like RNG Manipulation.
    156 Pokemon in the Unova dex. 6 of them are event Pokemon.
    151 Pokemon in the Kanto dex. 1 of them is an event Pokemon.

    When you see it...

    You wouldn't necessarily HAVE to know what Pokemon specifically you'd be encountering, right? You'd just need to know all the threats your team would have to worry about, since the Battle Tower most likely has every possible move, ability, and item you'd have to worry about; for example, instead of searching all of the OHKO move users, just find something to prepared for OHKO moves in general.

    The trouble is with the BT you CAN'T be prepared for everything, its why they limit the teams to 3, more strategy because you can't have a contingency for every single situation. One one hit ko pokemon isn't too bad. Run into an entire team on the other hand, all of whom have perfect accuracy somehow... That's the BT.

    There will always be that one Pokemon...that destroys you...there's a name for it, it's called Quick Claw Rhydon. With Horn Drill.
    But wait, skarmory's physical defense and a sturdy ability would block that very well, especially with roost.

    Never met that rhydon, or if I have its quick claw didn't activate.

    Though I have met the crawdaunt, dewgong, walrein, goldeen, and probably a couple others i forgot. I had the dewgong, walrein and another all on the same team earlier -.-

    Yes, that skarmony counters one hit ko's, but it leaves you open to other things depending on your other pokemon. It is truly impossible to cover every base with only 3 pokemon, sadly .

    In my 88 streak, I met several QC Rhydon. Every time, their Horn Drill missed when the Quick Claw activated while Scizor set up a Sub. Tip: spam Sub until they run out of OHKO move PP.

    Also, isn't Latias a better lead than Cresselia? Gets all the moves listed, still has massive special bulk, and can Charm physical attackers. I use:

    Latias @Choice Scarf
    Timid
    252 HP/172 Def/84 Speed
    Levitate
    Trick
    Thunder Wave
    Charm
    Flash

    Trick the Scarf, T-Wave to cancel out the Scarf, spam Charm against physical attackers, and continue to cripple with Flash. The EVs outspeed Adamant Garchomp if I've already Tricked away the Scarf, and Latias needs to come in again after they kill somebody.

    That Dewgong is DREADFUL. RestTalk + 2 OHKOes is annoying. I lost at 42 once when I was a noob at the BT with a Garchomp/Suicune/Infernape.

    She's not necessarily better, it just depends on which will benefit your
    synergy better. You may have pokemon that don't wanna take any ice
    moves, so in that case Cresselia/Uxie/etc may be more fitting.

    Don't forget who gave you that set ~.^

    Default The AI's hax saga (Part I)

    I remember meeting a unfortunate situation in Emerald's BT where AI hacked a ton.

    Battle Streak 19-20
    Brendan vs Lass (B****!)
    I used Blaziken, Flygon and Metagross
    The Lass (B****) used only a single Pokémon
    Golem@Chesto Berry
    Focus Punch
    Double Team
    Substitute
    Rest

    You know what happened!

    Things do start to pick up after you beat Palmer the first time, but it's certainly not impossible. Hopefully the tips in this guide help you out, good luck!

    Also, hello everyone, glad to see the forum is still alive and well!

    My new streak is 36 while using Starmie, Metagross and Dragonite.
    Quick Claw is what got me :/ Hax just dominated, so I think I might start using subs, honestly.

    My battle tower team is:

    Metagross
    +attack, -spattack
    Zen headbutt
    Thunderpunch
    Earthquake
    Meteor mash

    Heavy hitter, maxed attack and speed evs, he gets hard almost anything ive seen. Almost impossible to OHKO from what ive seen.

    Tyranitar
    +speed, -spdefence
    Thunderpunch
    Icepunch
    Earthquake
    Stone edge

    The backup. Has ice punch and earthquake to deal anything that took out metagross by chance. Havent, but am thinking of redoing and ev training

    Heracross
    +attack,-spattack
    Superpower
    Stone edge
    Mgahorn
    Swords dance

    Maxed attack and speed again, i use him to counter any dark, psychic, and fighting types that ruin tyranitar. Thanks
