    I have used two different teams to win 100 battles in a row, here are the details for them.

    The first one was for Diamond and Pearl, for Double Battles. This was from quite a while before Platinum existed, so it is rather outdated. The team is as follows:

    Bronzong @ Lum Berry
    Ability: Heatproof
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Att / 6 Sp.def
    Nature: Brave
    - Trick Room
    - Gyro Ball
    - Earthquake
    - Explosion

    Lv1 Starly @ Focus Sash
    Ability: Keen Eye
    EVs: Zero
    Nature: Can't remember but it doesn't matter
    - Protect
    - Endeavor
    - Rain Dance
    - Foresight

    Dusknoir @ Leftovers
    Ability: Pressure
    EVs: 252 HP / 58 Def / 200 Sp.def
    Nature: Sassy
    - Will-O-Wisp
    - Night Shade
    - Protect
    - Rest

    Exeggutor @ Life Orb
    Ability: Chlorophyll
    EVs: 190 HP / 100 Att / 220 Sp.att
    Nature: Quiet
    - Leaf Storm
    - Psychic
    - Trick Room
    - Explosion

    Credits for this team goes to Team Rocket Elite from Smogon. An updated and better version of the team he uses can be found here. The ones I used have quite bad IVs which I never bothered to check exactly, but they got the job done anyway.

    The strategy is rather simple. Use Trick Room+Protect on the first turn, the opponent will usually target Starly as it is the weakest. Thanks to Trick Room, it will be faster than everything on the second turn and on. Then it is just to use Endeavor to get the opponent down to low HP so Bronzong can kill them. Then it is usually Explosion on the third turn while Starly uses Protect, the opponent will usually by then either be down to 1 Pokemon or have lost. I can explain more in detail if anyone would be interested.

    For Platinum I went for Singles instead, using the following team:

    Latias (F) @ Choice Scarf ** Rosa
    Ability: Levitate
    IVs: 31/7/31/31/31/31
    EVs: 252 HP / 182 Def / 76 Spd
    Nature: Timid
    - Trick
    - Thunder Wave
    - Charm
    - Recover

    Registeel @ Leftovers ** Metal Man
    Ability: Clear Body
    IVs: 31/31/31/7/31/31
    EVs: 252 HP / 100 Att / 146 Def / 12 Sp.def
    Nature: Careful
    - Iron Head
    - Curse
    - Amnesia
    - Substitute

    Salamence (M) @ Lum Berry ** Nate
    Ability: Intimidate
    IVs: 31/31/31/31/31/31
    EVs: 252 Att / 6 Sp.Def / 252 Spd
    Nature: Adamant
    - Outrage
    - Earthquake
    - Substitute
    - Dragon Dance

    Credit for this team goes to Bozo from Smogon.
    A pretty standard TrickScarf team, use Trick and cripple the opponent with Latias (in some rare occasions, you'll want to go for Charm/Thunder Wave instead or switch). Then set up Registeel or Salamence and destroy everything... hopefully.

    For HG/SS I haven't tried the Battle Tower this seriously (I got past Palmer in battle #49 in SoulSilver with a bad team, but that's it) and I don't think I'll ever try the Battle Tower again in them.
    September Blue, Thy sorrows be forgotten
    October Auburn, Let this season pass
    November Gray, Restore with thy rain
    December White, Thy beauty ever last

    I haven't faced the Battle Tower yet, at the moment I'm just training my team up some levels before taking on the tower.
