Slaking @ Choice Band
6hp/252 atk/252 speed
Giga impact for STAB (It always K.O 1-2 Foe's pokemon, if not, in the other turn that he attack, he finish his job). Earthquake for Fires, Rocks and Steels.
Shadow Claw for ghost types.
Volcarona @ life orb
2hp/ 252 S.Atk/ 252 Speed
Hidden power rock
My special sweeper. Quiver dance to boost his Sp. Atack and Speed so he can hit harder and faster. Bug Buzz and Fiery Dance for STAB. this thing hits really hard if the foe's pokemon it's not resistant agains it.
Serperior @ leftovers
4 hp/252 sp. attack/ 252 speed
Hidden Power Rock
I wanted to test a contrary serperior, so I hacked one (as you can see, with legal ev training and all), And I Love it. He was my "finisher"....I always send him after a oponent KO one of my Pokemon and his hp was low, so I finished it with a leaf storm and gained a +2 sp. attack boost. and then wreak havoc with him. Hidden power rock save me a lot against flyers, some dragons (Dragonite and Salamence), and fire types. I Used dragon tail for force a switch out against a rival that it can't kill yet.
How I Lost: Against a Garchomp....I started with my Slaking, Use Giga Impact, Garchomp Avoid it, it uses swords dance....Slaking needs to recharge, Garchomp uses Dragon Claw...Slaking faints...I send out my volcarona. Garchomp uses swords dance, Volcarona uses Quiver dance...Volcarona uses Hidden power Rock...Garchomp Avoid it -.- .....garchomp uses earthquake...volcarona faints....I send out my Serperior...It uses leaf storm...garchomp uses fire fang, serperior faints.

I wouldn't say so, really. A carefully EV'd Volcarona can outspeed pretty much everything it needs to with spare EVs to dump into HP and it doesn't have to be Timid either. Imo making a Max Spe Timid one is just huge overkill when you don't need it.
Politoed @ Choice Scarf
EVs: 252 SpA/252 Speed
Hidden Power: Electric | 70 power
Same as before. Sets up rain & usually KOs the first Pokemon and does decent damage to the second so Ludicolo or Scizor can come in and clean up. HP electric is only for Gyrados, Ice beam is for Dragons and Torterra. Psychic is strictly for Toxicroak and can be replaced by focus blast or something else.
Ludicolo @ Life Orb
Ability: Swift Swim
EVs: 252 SpA/252 Speed
Hidden Power: Psychic | 70 power
Again, OHKOs most things that aren't ridiculously bulky. HP Psychic is for Toxicroak.
Deals with pesky ice types, Tyranitar and sometimes dragons. Aerial Ace was never used so you can replace it with...idk. It only needs 4 speed to outspeed neutral base 65s who have no speed EV investment.
Notes: Lead Jolteon, Lead Zebstrika, Tyranitar, Venusaur (see below) and the OHKO Walrien are problematic. Swift swimmers are slightly troublesome too.
734 | Venusaur | Bold | Black Sludge | Leech Seed | Substitute | Sludge Bomb | Protect | HP/SpD <--scared me a few times.
Lost: Battle video #: 24-20775-70374
Lost because of hax Walrien. I guess I could have aerial aced with Scizor but I wasn't expecting such a huge amount of hax in that battle. *sigh*
Flare Blitz is monstrous. Rock Slide is mostly for Archeops/Aerodactyl. Hammer Arm & Earthquake were mostly used when they were 4x effective.
Latios @ Life Orb
Hidden: Fire | Power:70
EVs: 4 HP/252 Sp.A/252 Speed
Draco meteor is used when I can 2 hit/OHKO the opponent and the opponent can't KO me before. Otherwise Draco Meteor is used for some hot OHKOing action. HP fire for steels obviously. Psyshock can be used over Psychic but I didn't really see a need for Psyshock in the 100 battles.
Can't remember too much about this streak. I know Vaporeon was huge pain. Scarfed rock slide Pokemon were problematic too.
Video #: 25-08496-48322
2 fire types basically screwed me. Maybe I could have switched to Latios to save my Darmanitan or maybe switch to Scizor to take Raikou's shadow ball. Meh, another case where it's important to run damage calcs and weigh your options before making a move.
I'm only posting the second record in case someone else wants to try out that team. I'm sure it can get 100+. If anyone has any suggestion for tweaking the second team that would be cool too. I thought about replacing Latios for Dragonite but Dragonite's kinda slow compared to Latios plus it would make my team completely physical. Maybe I could replace Scizor with Magnezone but then I have a dragon problem.
I lose Fire attack protection for Ferrothorn that Latios gave me, but he gives me something that outspeeds Froslass and Gengar. Opinions on which I should choose?
Prankster Taunt allows me to stop non auto-weather changers from changing the weather. (I'm thinking Froslass changing the weather to Hail)
Grass Knot gives me coverage against heavy Rocks, Waters, and Grounds. (Yeah, I'm looking at you, Milotic..)
Credit to Beck for the RNG userbar.
As of August 18th 2012, I resigned as a CG leader.
Typical Ferrothorn, and has been working really well with Tyranitar and Garchomp, switching into threats with ease. Tried a Curse set instead of Power Whip, but I really missed the Grass move as my team can't handle Water-types very well otherwise.
Can OHKO or 2HKO pretty much anything with Outrage, and also outspeeds almost all of the Subway as she has a 30 Speed IV. Was desperately missing a Fire move on my team, and Fire Fang fills the niche quite nicely. Going to sub out Life Orb for a Choice Band once I have enough BP.
Just faced off against a Legendary Trainer as my 35th battle and thought it was all over... But then! Garchomp 2HKO'd his Virizion with Fire Fang, then 2HKO'd Regice with Fire Fang and got a flinch, then OHKO'd Latias with Outrage. So surprised I beat him, but also super excited!
EDIT: And then, I got killed the next battle ._. seriously? Bah.. Anyway, lead with Tyranitar, and he lead out with Frosslass. Switched to Ferrothorn, and Gyro Ball missed twice allowing Frosslass to get my health down to low yellow. Finally killed Frosslass with a Gyro Ball, then he sent out Abomasnow, which killed Ferro with Blizzard. Switched in Garchomp, Fire Fang'ed, but Abomasnow had a damn Focus Sash and killed Garchomp. Sent out Tyranitar and killed Abomasnow with a Crunch, after he got my health down to low yellow with a Hammer Arm. Last Pokemon was a Beartic, and of course Stone Edge missed, and he killed me with a Blizzard. Grr. Oh well, 35 is still way better than I was expecting. Team seems to be a good match for one another so far.
You could always use Skill Swap. Xatu is a decent partner thanks to it's
4x fighting resist, although when in doubles it's highly likely that all of
the fighting attacks will be aimed elsewhere. All in all, it's a pretty
gimmicky strategy, but if you can pull it off you can wreak some havoc.
Ugh, I hate the troll Meganium with double team and no damaging attacks. All my damaging attacks missed and I've been switching between my 2 Pokemon for like 50 turns now just waiting for it to struggle to death. -__-
