Draconic Pokemon are King: My Deviant: http://xxd17.deviantart.com
Future Alpha Sapphire Team:
I'm playing around with ideas at the moment, but my current team for Super Single battles is as follows:
Choice Specs @Frisk
Sitrus Berry @Huge Power
(Mega) Lucario @Hasty
Lucarionite @Steadfast (Adaptability)
My strategy so far has been pretty simple: Noivern leads and scouts the opposing Pokemon's item. The first turn requires some prediction, but usually involves switching items to lock my opponent into their first move. If I think they're going to go for the OHKO instead, I switch in one of my sweepers depending on the type of attack I think is coming. I've found Azumarill and Lucario between them cover Noivern's weaknesses pretty well.
Azumarill can be tricky to set up safely, usually requiring my opponent to be choice-locked into a resisted attack before I feel safe enough to fire off a Belly Drum. Once that's done though, Aqua Jet sweeps damn near everything out there.
Lucario is easier to get in and set up in spite of its legendary frailness. Again, the plan here is simply set up and sweep. I'm going to try a few battles using Flash Cannon instead of Shadow Claw, as I find I don't really use the claw that often. The reason for my Lucario's unusual nature is that it's the same one I acquired from Serena during my playthrough. I'm currently breeding for a flawless Adamant version with Bullet Punch to take its place. At the moment Lucario feels a lot like filler in my team, and I'm open to the idea of switching it out for something else.
Any suggestions for improvements?

So right now I am at a streak of 17 in Super Triples... I am completely un-prepared. I messed around with a Banded Earthquake Garchomp in the center with Dragonite and Rotom at the sides, kinda worked. I tried MegaChomp for SlideQuake with Air Balloon Rhyperior and Dazzling Specs Gengar... barely worked. I tried a sun team with MegaYzard, Talonflame and Blaziken... too gimmicky. Triples is much more interesting than Singles in terms of preparations required. I need to find three Pokemon that work well together on the field at one time, that can hit multiple enemies without backlash and are strong with three more Pokemon in reserve to sponge/wall/switch-in.
I've been thinking about using a team like this:
Garchomp @ Garchompite -- Center
Adamant | 252 ATK / 252 SPE
Earthquake - Outrage - Rock Slide - Iron Head
Zapdos @ Life Orb -- Left (Don't have yet)
Modest/ Timid | 252 SPA / 252 SPE
Discharge - Thunderbolt - Ancient Power - Round (#2sweg4u)
Noivern @ Choice Specs -- Right (Telepathy) (Don't have yet)
Modest | 252 SPA / 252 SPE
Boomburst - Draco Meteor - Hurricane - U-turn
Dragonite @ Lum Berry -- Reserve (Multscale)
Adamant | 252 ATK / 252 SPE
Dragon Dance - Outrage - Roost - Fire Punch
Rotom-W @ Leftovers -- Reserve
Calm | 252 HP / 52 SPA / 200 SPD
Hydro Pump - Volt Switch - Thunder Wave - Hex
Aegislash @ Weakness Policy -- Reserve (Don't have yet)
Adamant | 252 HP / 152 ATK / 100 SPA
Automize - Shadow Ball - Shadow Sneak - Iron Head
From what I can think of right now, only a Scarfed Jynx would be able to damage my to the point of me fearing a loss. I'd appreciate feedback and / or help getting this team together in order to beat Triples and later on Doubles (Garchomp & Zapdos + Aegislash & Rotom-W).

I am looking for competitive shinies and trophy shinies. I can breed almost anything at this point. My Trade Thread; I EV train, level up and collect!
I've got a ton of IV Bred Pokemon, check out my trade thread and message me!
Challenge Count: 23 Wins / 3 Loss | Battle Maison Streaks: 53 Singles / 49 Doubles / 50 Triples / 20 Rotation / 22 Multi
Beat by: a random, Steezus x 2.
Those cheating computers.
They have a Dragalge with its Hidden Ability. What's its Hidden Ability? Adaptability. Say hello to Draco Meteor to the face.
And no, there's still no known way to own one, not even through Friend Safari.
They also use Pokemon with the B/W 2 move tutor moves.
Though that's not quite as unfair as having HA Pokemon we probably won't get until the next game is released.
Need help with my Battle Maison team. Basically, I've got these Pokemon via Wonder Trade, and I think they're quite good too. I still haven't checked their IVs, and they're freshly hatched from eggs, so I'm willing to EV train them using the ST. Anyway, I would really appreciate you guys helping me with them (no egg moves please, as I said, I don't really like breeding much). Comment away.
Adamant (+ Attack, - Sp Attack)
252 Attack / 252 Speed / 4 HP
- Power-Up Punch (does it have a double Attack boost due to Parental Bond?)
- Sucker Punch
- Fake Out?

Friend Safari: GHOSTLampent, Pumpkaboo, Drifblim
Yes, but even with the priority Aqua Jet, i wonder if Carracosta will be able to outspeed speedy foes after one ShellSmash if he will have to use his other move. So Im considering other member:
Gliscor @ Toxic Orb
Ability Poison Heal
Impish or Careful nature
Espeon @ Light Clay
Ability Magic Bounce
Timid (+Speed, -Att)
For gliscor i want to invest in his Sp.D to be able to take Sp.Hit decently. Specificaly agaisnt the Legendary of the super single chatelaine.
Sword Dance is to boost the power from ice fang, who's there to have a good coverage with earthquake. Protect is there to recover with Poison Heal and stall if the foes have been leech seeded, poisoned or burned by the two other member who cover his weakness.
With Espeon, he's there to give more protection to M-Venusaur and Rotom-H, and also reflect the statut move that are not covered by the other two. Psyshock his almost only there for Chansey/Blissey, Jellicent and other Special waller.
I will try both of them with venusaur and rotom, i've already breed the Timid eevee with 31/x/31/31/31/31 IV. Only have to do the gligar and the bulbasaur with Giga Drain..
Suggestion are appreciated!
All Haill King Saur!
OR: CT or Chuck Norris (Swampert),Torkoal,....
AS: Jean-Claude Van Damm or Boyka (Blaziken),Ludicolo,...
So I'm guessing there's no way to glass cannon through the thing ey?

It's highly recommended that you have a few durable Pokemon on your team that can take a hit or two, otherwise, unexpected Choice Scarf/Focus Sash users will cause a lot of trouble.
Higher levels are where the legendaries and unavailables start appearing, with good moves and proper equipment. Just a brute force strategy at that point will meet a team that is just faster and/or stronger than is currently available. At that point, you need to be stronger and faster than what a Pokémon normally is.
Anyone saying Red is a good trainer please explain to me how he can have a Jolteon get OHKO'ed by a Thunderbolt. From a Rhyhorn.

I got up to 50 with these 3 until I decided to take a break
Dragonite@ Lum Berry
252 ATK 252 Speed 6 HP
252 SPATK 252 Speed 6 HP
252 SPDEF 60ATK 198 HP
-Stone Edge(Actually came in handy against those annoying stockpile users)
-Thunder Wave(Helped out against an annoying Mandibuzz that abused Substitute, Roost)
I bumped into 2 Tornadus, I froze the first one with Greninja and OHKOed the one used by the #50 trainer with a crit with Dragonite. So I couldn't tell if any had Aeroblast or not. Aggron did surprisingly well. There were times where it was better to stay normal though(Like getting stab from Stone Edge to KO stuff easier). Cradily's were nothing but setup fodder against Dragonite. I'd go +6 using DD and sweep with ease. The Maison isn't as annoying as Subway or the Towers IMO
Yes that is a Female Dino Charge Red. It's a FanFic thing

Does anyone know if Sturdy is really necessary for Maison teams? I'm really paranoid about OHKO users and I want to reach the 200-battle streak. Sturdy is immune to these moves, but most Pokémon with Sturdy use up valuable slots in my team. Instead of Carracosta I sort of want to get a Cloyster instead, since it can break through Focus Sash and can sweep through Nita's team once you reach 50 battles.

Anyways I lost on 248 due to a Cobalion having Quick Attack and finishing my Sashed Pokemon off. All I can say is the Maison does create teams to counter yours the further you get on the streak, specifically from my experience a team designed to beat your lead Pokemon. I probably should of paid more attention to be honest as when I got to my Target of 200 for the Berry I didn't really pay attention.
I have now started a new streak with the same Pokemon and I am at 150 at the moment, I ain't playing as much as I was before but I'm aiming to beat my Streak.
No Mega Evolutions have happened.
I don't think having trainers Mega Evolutions would be that unusual considering that so many of them are packing legendary Pokemon and what not.
I'm guessing they'll probably have them in the next game.
