After a year or two of not playing at all, I picked HG up again and tried my hand at the Frontier. Most of my Pokemon are still in Diamond, so I just threw a team together from the IV-bred and EV-trained ones I had transferred to HG. Then I found out this team worked surprisingly well. :D
Unfortunately I have forgotten the exact IVs and EV spreads... But, feel free to suggest some spreads, 'cause they can still be re-trained.
(IVs can't be changed, but i recall them being high in the right stats.
(Brackets on items because this will also be used at the Arcade)
Leading off with...
If the opposing lead is something non-threatening, I just
up and usually sweep the rest of the team with
. If it's something somewhat threatening (or a special attacker Latias laughs at) I take a hit and
away. If I expect a strong Fire-type hit, I switch to either Latias or Salamence (duh). Latias if it's a special hit and Salamence if the hit is physical. And considering we're talking about the Battle Frontier,
should be self-explanatory.
it smashes Double Teamers to bits and
It also gets a nice boost from Technician.
Latias comes in on something it has no trouble taking hits from and
s one or two times. Then it's sweeping time with near-perfect neutral coverage from

And last off...
Mixmence. This feels like a filler. :D
If I feel like both Scizor and Latias would have trouble setting up, or I'm not sure with which one I should set up, I try to get this thing in and try to deal massive damage without setting up. I usually start with
away, depending on the defences and typing of the opponent of course. (Steels get a special treatment from either
, and if the defences of the opponent differ greatly from each other, I pick a physical or special move accordingly.)
Yeah, that's it. Feel free to suggest anything and also ask for any sort of extra info. =)
