Hey fellas. I have been playing the battle subway a little bit lately, and I used this team with some success:
Item: Life Orb
EVs: 4 Def 252 SpA 252 Spe
Standard specially offensive Starmie. I have her as my lead because of coverage. She can often quickly sweep entire teams in the battle tower. She is especially useful when the computer leads with a pesky dragon. If I still have her in reserve, I can switch her into a fire attack against Scizor or an ice attack against Flygon.
Item: Choice Band
EVs: 252 HP 252 Att 4 Spe
Pretty standard bullet punching choice band Scizor, except for Aerial Ace. I put that in because Pursuit isn't really that useful since the computer very rarely switches, and I wanted a perfect accuracy move because the computer has no problem spamming double team (I had a bad experience in Platinum with Tangrowth spamming double team, causing me to miss 12 fucking turns in a row, losing me a battle tower match after a streak of like 60). He is my switch in for grass, dark and bug attacks against Starmie, and ice attacks against Flygon.
Item: Expert belt
EVs: 4 HP 252 Att 252 Spe
The reason I haven't been using choice scarf on him is because I didn't have a choice scarf, and also because I didn't really want 2/3 of my team to be choice users. He has a free switch in to any electric or ground attacks, which is really nice.
So basically these fellas all cover each other's weaknesses really well. With a team of three pokemon I really just wanted to get the most coverage possible out of each move slot, and it basically worked out. One thing to note is lack of fire coverage, but between Aerial Ace, Earthquake and Ice Beam I can hit anything that would also be weak to fire super effectively, bar that annoying Bronzong.
So I have had some success with this team. I made it up to a 74 win streak in the super battle subway before a Feraligatr switched in on Scizor locked in BP and he was allowed to get two dragon dances up. HOWEVER, when I moseyed on over to the wifi subway, my team was promptly swept in the fifth battle by a Starmie (presumably Timid), which had no trouble outspeeding and killing everyone on my team in one hit.
So yeah, there are a couple obvious solutions that I have considered.
Obvious solution #1: Raise a Timid Starmie. This might work, but that's still the speed tie, so I'd still be vulnerable to getting swept.
Obvious solution #2: Give Flygon a choice scarf. This would allow me to get a hit in on pretty much anything, but then I'd have two choice users on my team.
So what do you say, guys? Is there a simple solution, or do I need to completely revamp my team? Thanks in advance!
