    Default Revised L50 Battle Arena Team

    Having experienced some recent successes and disappointing failures in battle arena in attempts of getting another gold symbol, I have modified my team as follows:

    Heracross, adamant, guts, holding focus band
    impressive in abilities, flawless attack/speed
    6HP, 252 attack/speed
    - Megahorn
    - Brick Break
    - Earthquake
    - Rock Slide
    * focus band helped it survive a drill-pecking dodrio and a salamence in order to save my run.

    Gardevoir, modest, trace, holding leftovers
    impressive in abilities, flawless Sp.Att/speed/Sp.Def
    6HP, 252 Sp.Att/speed
    - Calm Mind
    - Psychic
    - Thunderbolt
    - Will-o-wisp

    Aerodactyl, jolly, rock head, holding king's rock
    impressive in abilities, flawless attack/speed
    6HP, 252 Attack/speed
    - Rock Slide
    - Return / Double-edge
    - Earthquake
    - Aerial Ace
    * currently using return since I only have one move tutor left for double edge, needs to be jolly since adamant got OHKO'd by jolteon last time.

    or

    Slaking, adamant, truant, holding choice band
    (currently breeding for adamant & flawless attack/speed)
    6HP, 252 attack/speed
    - Return
    - Shadow Ball
    - Earthquake
    - Aerial Ace / Focus Punch
    * not certain whether focus punch can work ingame, aerial ace for accuracy at least, truancy alone may be of concern if opponent does protect/detect.

    choice band heracross

    kings rock + rock slide doesn't work so use liechi berry > kings rock and substitute > return

    As an update, I have a 2 adamant slakings in training with flawless attack/speed. While focus punch is recommended on smogon mainly in the event of switches, but since the computer rarely switches and the pokemon usually attack, I was wondering if it is worth it to keep focus punch instead of aerial ace. I intend to raise one of them with focus punch while the other will use aerial ace.

    Which move is better to use ingame: the more powerful focus punch or more accurate aerial ace?

    I like to use jolly breloom in arena (spore-puncher) just few pokemon has insomnia, and if some of them appears, use one of breloom other attacks and wait it faint, then, put in the next slot a pokemon that learns rock slide, a hidden power psychical and shadow ball (to cover flying, and ghosts)

    so prefer use breloom in the 2nd slot.

    slaking

    SE aerial ace = 120 power

    STAB return, normal effectivness: = 153 power

    super effective aerial ace is hardly benificial when satbbed return does more

    I think that slacking isn´t good in arena, because it attack only once or twice, and in this(ese) turn(s) the opponent can use protect.

    As an update, heracross' megahorn took out greta's umbreon while gardevoir's psychic took out gengar & breloom.

    gold guts symbol is now mine, now to focus on battle dome with similar team only I am using metagross instead of heracross there.
