    kingdra seems like the best alternative so far with its 4x resistance to water and only weakness being dragon. the main issue i had was trying to find something that could easily fight back after switching into the water types. after it sets up though kingdra can probably kill them off

    Typhoon1 Tides have turned.

    It would have sub+protect and taunt, to stop other taunters and pokes who try to set up. Although I'm having trouble deciding between them.

    what is the best salamence counter that is easy to fit into a team? I was thinking bronzong cuz he can absorb para and switch in on a lot of mences but he doesn't do well against fire blast. and he has no recovery. Does anyone else have some ideas?

    Cress is really the only thing that can switch in reliable on all mences without extreme predicton. Although once you find out what type of mence it isn't as hard

    Gyarados and P2 make reliable Mence switchins, though they have to be incredibly bulky to do so. Bronzong does well. But usually the best option is to Lure out Outrage or Draco Meteor, then switch to a steel
     
  6. In my Battle Frontier team I have a Dragon Dance Gyarados and a Calm mind Cresselia. Basic stuff but I need one more pokemon, preferably a special sweeper.

    Porygon 2 can easily wall a mence as trace will weaken it and ice beam will kill it.

    Porygon2 can't take boosted Draco meteors to well though

    Scarf latias outruns +1 speed and OHKOs with dragon pulse.
     
  10. I'm just afraid of running into something like a Electrivire. Perhaps I'll just put EQ on Gyarados and hope I have a DD off already. But still, any other ideas for special sweepers?

    What is the best strategy for a 3v3 Single Battle?
    I have a Lunar Dance Cresselia, DD Mence, and a SD Lucario.

    I think the best strategy is to use a physical sweeper a special sweeper and a tank or mixed sweeper.Walls In 3vs3 are a bit useless in my opinion.Your team is good but you might want to change Lucario to a CM set.

    My strategy is to start with Cresselia and Salamence, Salamence sets up and Cress sets up the screens, then Salamence sweeps until he dies, only to be revived with Lunar dance, then both Lucario and Mence sweeps.

    Hidden Power?

    You don't really have much options...
    Ominous Wind can work.

    Either stick with Hidden Power or Have hyper beam as a last ditch move? :s

    Then use Hidden Power.
