Magically Delicious!
Crobat@ Sharp Beak?: Lead/Scout
Inner Focus
Jolly
4 HP/252 ATK/252 Spe

U-Turn
Brave Bird
Cross Poison
Roost/Hypnosis

Pretty simple lead, stick around for STAB moves, bail with U-Turn if needed, heal with Roost or speed sleep with Hypnosis, depending on which rout I go.

Tyranitar@ Leftovers: Mixed Wall/Midling Phys. Sweeper
Sand Stream
Relaxed
108 HP/200 Def/200 SpD

Curse
Earthquake
Stone Edge
Crunch
OR
Tyranitar @ Life Orb: Phys. Sweeper
Sand Stream
Adamant
4 HP/252 Atk/ 252 Spe

Dragon Dance
Crunch
Stone Edge
Fire Punch
Can’t decide which to use. Curse set works for a solid wall, still keeping some fair attack power. DD Set has some great sweeping power, and fair coverage.

Porygon-Z @ Wise Glasses: Special Sweeper
Modest
Adaptability
4 HP/252 SpA/252 Spe

Nasty Plot
Psychic
Ice Beam
Tri-Attack
Special sweeper, fairly standard, gets the job done.

As yet untested, just an idea right now, looking for that 100 win streak. I ran a Starmie-Electivire-Metagross set to 104 in my Pearl game, thinking this one has a shot to out do it. I can't decide which Tyranitar to use, or what item to use with Crobat. I thought Sharp Beak for added power to Brave Bird in case the other 2 fall and I need a hail mary.

I think you should replace T-Tar or PZ because they share a fighting weakness which doesn't help you at all. I suggest replacing T-tar with another physical or mixed sweeper, because his ability hurts your team. Also, PZ with Nasty Plot doesn't work too well. He's not exactly bulky, and his speed isn't outstanding. A Scarf set would work better, IMO. Psychic gets pathetic coverage, replace it with T-bolt and replace NP with Dark Pulse to hit ghosts. Makes a fine revenge killer. (Keep your Nature and EVs, btw)

I'll come back to this later, probably.

I thought about running a Extremespeed Dragonite rather than Tyranitar, but I haven't yet been able to come up with one through a trade. I like the Scarf idea for PZ, that'll help eliminate the need for set up.

What about:

Gyarados @ Choice Band

Adamant

4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spd

Aqua Tail/Waterfall
Bounce
Earthquake
Stone Edge

As a replacement to Tyranitar?

Suggestions are, as always, marked out in the clichéd bold.

Crobat@ Life OrbLead/Scout
Inner Focus
Jolly
4 HP/252 ATK/252 Spe

U-Turn
Brave Bird
Cross Poison
Roost/Hypnosis
As to that, I can offer no assistance. I would take Roost to counteract the Life Orb, but then again. Hypnosis would be useful for Sleep. If you're willing to resign Crobat to an early grave, then go with Hypnosis, purely because Roost leaves you open to that ever-common Earthquake.

Go with that Gyarados. That particular set, it inspires me somewhat... One thing I might point out is that Bounce is predictable, and may induce a switch, but the CPU isn't that smart... are they...?

Porygon-Z @ Wise Glasses: Special Sweeper
Modest
Adaptability
4 HP/252 SpA/252 Spe

Nasty Plot
Psychic
Ice Beam
Thunderbolt
Just for type coverage, the tried and true BoltBeam combo. If you want to keep Tri Attack over Psychic for the STAB boost and Adaptability boost.

This is a pretty good team, I'll have you know.

^ what are you talking about?
how is a FLYING/poison type weak to EQ (ground attack)

also: bounce = no it takes 1 charge turn and has only 85 accuracy

gyarados
adamant
252 atk 252 spd 4 HP
life orb
intimidate
waterfall
earthquake
stone edge
dragon dance

crobat
jolly
inner focus
expert belt
252 spd 252 atk 4 HP
aerial ace
hypnosis
cross poison
u-turn

aerial ace because otherwise you are HAX weak
hypnosis for sleep
roost is useless because its defenses arent that good without EV investment so it is likeley to be killed quickly anyway
(both defenses are 85 at lv 50 with no EV investment)

the only thing that needs changing on porygon z is the moves
ice beam
thunderbolt
dark pulse
tri attack

perfect coverage as far as i know (plus you can now hit ghosts for SE)

that should work
 

Crystal.

thats bc when u roost, yu lose the flying type for that turn nub.
 

Ampy

Light The Stars
also: bounce = no it takes 1 charge turn and has only 85 accuracy

Bounce really isn't that bad in the BT actually... as long as you are using Sub along with it.

Gyarados@Leftovers
Adamant Nature
EVs: 252 Atk/116 HP/140 Spe
Substitute
Waterfall
Bounce
Dragon Dance

AI doesn't switch very often anyways
 

[GS]

Staring at my phone
You should use the Sub-Bounce set Ampy gave,
it kicks ***** in the BT.

Gyarados@Leftovers
Adamant Nature
EVs: 252 Atk/116 HP/140 Spe
Substitute
Waterfall
Bounce
Dragon Dance

Porygon-Z wants this set:

Porygon-Z @ Choice Scarf
252 Spe/252 SpA/4 Def
*Adaptability*
~ Ice Beam
~ Tri-Attack
~ Dark Pulse
~ Thunderbolt

This guy can makes sure you don't fall short
of a win should your other PKMN be knocked
out. These moves get the best coverage, but
you could run HP {Fight} over one of them,
depends on what you wanna cover.

Crystal.'s set for Crobat is your best bet with him.

crobat
jolly
inner focus

252 spd 252 atk 4 HP

ok so i didn't know bounce was good. (also it is still my opinion it isn't)

@
just because i make 1 mistake with the roost thing doesn't give you a reason to call people a nub.

anyway the bounce thing has inspired me to try it.
also grumpysnorlax i gave the crobat set and crystal quoted me.

any wayyou should use the gyarados ampy suggested and the PZ and crobat and snorlax
(and crystal quoted if he was suggesting it too)
