    Jeez, what a waste of a POTW...
    Ninjask has one usable set, with a SD set to go for the surprise factor potentially (not that it would be very efficient). It's sole purpose in life is to send Attack and Speed boosts to random pokemon on your team. I mean, with those stats, that's what he was made for.
    Honestly, nothing left to say that hasn't already been said.

    Doubles usefulness level: Low. Yanmega typically outshines him because he isn't phased by Intimidate, has a more versatile and effective movepool, and is less likely to be pwned by Priority. Baton Pass is nice for Ninjask, but thanks to TR, Tailwind, and generally bulky Pokemon in the doubles field, it's not a very good idea.

    So, the bug of speed is up. The big downside with this pokemon is it's a bug flying type, a typing that has been done into the ground. Which means that almost everyone knows it weakness, which I will recap. 2X Damage to Fire/Electric/Ice/and flying, with 4X Damage to Rock type attacks.

    After pondering for a while i finally found a pokemon that is a great partner for ninjask.

    XATU
    Magic bounce is the biggy here. it reflects back rocks, taunt, spikes and other entry hazards and even stops phasers (tried and tested on heatran) . also the boostes can then be abused by stored power variants of xatu (which is what i use). a 6+ speed is good, but any boost is fine, especially for stored power.

    Espeon is actually the preferred partner here. Not only does it still have Magic Bounce, but it also has Baton Pass as well for continuing the chain. Espeon is almost a must on BP teams for those reasons alone. It also has Stored Power, so once it gets a few speed and SpA boosts, it can bowl over teams with such a powerful Psychic STAB. Let's also not forget that Baton Pass protects a user from Pursuit, which Espeon loves.

    I still prefer Xatu, but i see your point.
    EDIT: oh, and xatu can hold its own against scizor and ferrothorn, which espeon can't do. thank goodness it has heat wave

    That actually depends on a lot of factors. If a 4 SpA Leftovers Timid Espeon, the standard for Baton Pass, gets just one SpA boost, CB Scizor is easily OHKOd and standard Ferrothorn is 2HKOd (OHKOd 25% of the time after SR) by HP Fire. Even if you don't have a Sub up, both CB Scizor and standard Ferrothorn fail to OHKO Espeon, so she still comes out on top. Even without boosts, Espeon's HP Fire has about 92% as much power as Xatu's Heat Wave.

    Of course, there's still almost no reason to use Xatu over Espeon if you want a focus on Baton Pass, since most of Xatu's advantages are eclipsed by the fact that Espeon has Baton Pass and Xatu does not. Of course, I'd usually choose Xatu over Espeon as a Magic Bounce user, but Espeon definitely has the edge as a partner for Ninjask.

    Did not see Ninjask getting a PotW discussion this short...should've, but didn't. Take away the Speed advantage and it's just another generic Bug Type. Realizing the creator of the Pokemon phenomenon was an avid bug collector, it's no wonder why we're...eh-heh, swarmed...by so many generic ones...

    Ninjask have.. one set what's there to discuss? the only difference is with X-scissors or without X-scissors.. there is nothing left to really talk about.. most pokemons like BP from him too...

    All too true. It's not bulky enough for lengthy combat like Armaldo, Volcarona, or Escavalier, nor does it have the raw punch that Heracross, Pinsir, or Accelgor have. Speed is all one can really use Ninjask for, especially with the Baton Pass option. A pity, but it does its limited combat and support options well enough.
