    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. -__-

    Aerial Ace is your friend against that thing...

    Other than that, there isn't much else you can do tbh.

    Mwahaha! I will be on that leaderboard! My current team's at 63 straight wins, and I haven't faced any big problems yet. I'll post back with my final record and team details when my streak ends.
    Hey Serebii, how you doing? Not sure how many of you guys from way back are out there, but just to let you know that I'm back, though I'm not sure how regularly I'll be on. Thanks for everything, and I hope I can continue to enjoy my time here!

    Ok, so I got a 69 win streak, but no way of uploading proof yet. So you can either believe me, put me in the rankings and I'll post my team, or wait until saturday when I can upload proof

    On Super Doubles I just went through 34 battles sweeping through w/ Thundurus, Garchomp, Cresselia, and Breloom, when I lost to a team of Cresselia, Virizion, Suicune, and Heatran. Worst luck ever. D:
    No!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    What about going with a partner Pokemon with Simple Beam? Would that work to counter Truant or even Regigigas' Slow Start (and also make it so stat boosts/cuts go double)?

    Regigigas is rly easy counter. I use my Lucario with close combat or aura sphere
    possibly my Poliwrath with EQ

    Yes, but that is competitive, not Battle Subway (which is what this thread is for).
    I do agree that he has his weaknesses, but could be a nasty surprise if played right, especially since he'd be running slow, so Simple Beam would hit him first, then have him use Double Team (his only boosting move), and good luck touching him (Barring that can't miss Aura Sphere... is it even used in the Subway?).

    Battle Subway Singles. Win Streak: 69

    Battle Video Number: 23-05957-77741

    The Team

    Politoed @ Leftovers
    Drizzle
    Sassy
    Evs: 252 HP, 196 Def, 60 Sp.Def
    Moves:
    --Toxic
    --Protect
    --Encore
    --Scald

    Sets up rain, obviously, then toxic stalls. Encore is helpful for locking an opponent on a move such as amnesia then setting up with Poliwrath. Scald is quite powerful in rain and there's a chance to burn.

    Poliwrath @ Life Orb
    Swift Swim
    Adamant
    EVs: 252 Att, 184 Speed, 72 HP
    Moves:
    --Bulk Up
    --Brick Break
    --Waterfall
    --EQ

    I opted for poliwrath as I really needed the extra coverage. Bulk up is to set up (specially when opponent is encored) Brick Break and Waterfall are STAB. EQ is for coverage.

    Kingdra @ Choice Specs
    Swift Swim
    Modest
    Evs: 252 Sp.Atk, 188 HP, 68 Speed
    Moves:
    --Surf
    --Dragon Pulse
    --Draco Meteor
    --Ice Beam

    Specs kingdra is awesome in rain. Surf is scary powerful with STAB, Rain and Specs. Dragon Pulse is additional STAB, Draco Meteor is there if I really need something KO'd and Ice Beam is coverage.

    I'm surprised, all this time, and I've still kept a solid #4.

    And about Aura Sphere being used in the BS, there's at least one Lucario set with it, I've run into it.

    There are actually 2. They both get great neutral coverage, and
    if the first one hits you with Metal Sound on the switch you
    could be in for some trouble if you don't outspeed and OHKO.

    347 | Lucario | Modest | Black Belt | Metal Sound | Dark Pulse | Aura Sphere | Heal Pulse | Spd/SpA
    872 | Lucario | Modest | Expert Belt | Aura Sphere | Psychic | Shadow Ball | Follow Me | Spd/SpA

    A big flaw with Lucario is his lackluster base 90 Speed.

    I say the second one looks quite scary with the coverage it gets, but can be beaten by a good ol' Focus Blast or a rain bossted Surf from Ludicolo thankfully.

    Hi, I've recently tried out a sunny day team in the super singles (Ninetales as lead and volcarona as setup sweeper). With that I tried using a Sizor to give some assistence as my two biggest fears, water and rock. However, this left me terribly open to counter fire types.

    Ninetales @ Wide lense
    Trait: Drought
    EVS: 252 HP 96 SpD / 160 Spd
    IVs: 31 / 12, 13 / 29 / 31 / 31 / 31
    Timid nature
    -Fire Blast
    -Energy Ball
    -Will-o-Wisp
    -Protect

    Volcarona @ Leftovers
    cant remember evs or ivs(but they are pretty good), but it's defence oriented, and bold natured.
    moves are
    fiery dance
    bug buzz
    quiver dance
    morning sun

    And final my sizor who's evs or ivs i cant remember at all but impish in nature, he is ev trained but not iv breed.
    moves:
    bullet punch
    night slash
    bug bite
    sword dance

    I realy want to keep my first two mons, and im asking for a suitable replacement for sizor, from what i've noticed so far, his main job will be to deal with rock types and other fire types, as water types hasn't proven that much of a nuisance in the sunny weather. Andvice, i mostly need a pokemon advice, but any further help (as to nature, evs and moves are also appreciated).

    I forgot to mention, since I'm using sunny weather I fear that using a water type wont cut it, or am i wrong?

    Perhaps try a dragon pokemon, such as haxorus or garchomp?

    You shouldn't be too afraid of Water types on a Sun team, as they'll be powered down by a half. And Scizor is a somewhat bad choice on a sun team, as some average Fire Attack will demolish it.

    To be fair, most Fire attacks will kill Scizor in 1 hit unless it's Raining anyway. Sun also essentially gives it a Water resistance too.

    Well, sizor did work pretty good with the team as he could counter rock, and to some extent water, the main problem simply was other fire types. Ninetales with a fire attack and grass, and a volcarona with a fire and a bug type attack aren't going to be making any big holes in fire types (unless fully buffed, but then again, havn't I allready won then? :P)

    I've tried replacing sizor with Garchomp, and had some success i guess, reached a 36 winning streak (still going), which is good for me, hopefully i can get it high enough to earn a place in the ranking hall in this thread

    There it ended at 38, not quite close enough to face the subway champ

    I've nearly finished EV training my second Pokemon for my Super Singles first attempt, this is what I got going atm...

    Mienshao - Fighting
    Ability: Regenerator
    Nature: Jolly
    Item: Wide Lens
    EVs: 252 Att/252 Spd/4 HP
    Hi Jump Kick
    U-Turn
    Rock Slide
    Fake Out

    Coverage - Normal, Fire, Ice, Flying, Psychic, Bug, Rock, Dark, Steel
    Weak - Flying, Psychic

    Gengar - Ghost/Poison
    Ability: Levitate
    Nature: Modest
    Item: Expert Belt
    EVs: 252 SpAtt/252 Spd/4 HP
    Shadow Ball
    Psychic
    Thunderbolt
    Energy Ball

    Coverage - Water, Poison, Ground, Flying, Fighting, Psychic, Rock, Ghost
    Weak - Psychic, Ghost, Dark

    Now, obviously, I need something to wall up these two sweepers. And while my plan was for this:

    Metagross - Steel/Psychic
    Ability: Clear Body
    Nature: Adamant
    Item: Leftovers
    EVs: 252 HP/252 Att/4 SpDef
    Bullet Punch
    Ice Punch
    Earthquake
    Meteor Mash

    Coverage - Fire, Electric, Grass, Ice, Ground, Flying, Rock, Dragon, Steel
    Weak - Fire, Ground

    ... my issue has landed in being unable to as of yet find someone to work with to acquire said 4th Gen Tutor'd Metang/Metagross (I have a Metang on my Diamond ready to trade to get taught, but not had any luck with aid).

    So, I am looking for an alternative wall/staller, to use either after a U-Turn into a threat he can handle, or if one gets knocked out, to wear one down.

    looks good, but be careful with the high jump kick cause it'll sometimes miss when you need it the most because its the subway.

    idk but air balloon heatran might work for your question
