|__(a2I).'Tornado' Strategy
Pokemon that can be used for this Strategy: Skarmory

[email protected]/Focus band

Ability: Keen Eye

Nature preferably naive:+speed,-sp.def or jolly:+speed,-sp.atk.

Stealth Rock




Explanation: The reason skarmory should have a naive or jolly nature is because they
both increase speed while decreasing the useless stats, and speed is vital in this
particular strategy. To start off, use Stealth Rock first and then Spikes. If you
get low on Hp then use Roost. After Spikes and Stealth rock keep on using whirlwind
or roar. But don't forget to use roost of the opponent goes first and deals a lot of

|__(a2II).'LightSpeed' Strategy
Pokemon that can be used for this strategy: Empoleon, Floatzel

Floatzel,[email protected] Water/Sea Incense

Nature Adamant:+atk,-sp.atk


Ability: Empoleon = torrent, Floatzel = Swift Swim

Aqua Jet

Swords Dance&empoleon, Bulk Up&floatzel

Rain Dance


Explanation: First of all Empoleon would be best to use for this strategy because
of its ability torrent and floatzel can't learn swords dance and empoleon can.
Start of using substitiute or swagger depending on which you chose. Then use
Rain Dance and then swords dance. combined with mystic water, STAb bonus, rain dance,
Swords dance and torrent aqua jets power is basically the same as a blisseys HP!
In other words use aqua jet next! trust me, I got a 97 win streak at the battle tower
with this one.

|__(a2III).'Relay' Strategy
Pokemon that can be used for this strategy: Ninjask.

[email protected] Beak

Ability: Speed Boost

Nature: Hardy, Serious, Bashful, Docile, Quirky - No advantages or disadvantages.


Swords Dance

Baton Pass

Double Team

Aerial Ace

Explanation: The only reason I have chosen the Sharp Beak is for Aerial Ace, 
because it gets STAB and Sharp Beak gives it yet more power. Use Swords Dance and 
Double Team. If the Pokemon Ninjask is against is weak to Flying don't use Double Team
yet use Aerial Ace instead. Once that Pokemon is down use Double Team then Baton Pass.
Fortunately, Baton Pass also passes on Stat changes, the whole point of this

|__(a2IV).'Invisible' Strategy
Pokemon that can be used for this strategy: Froslass.

[email protected]

Ability: Snow Cloak

Nature: Quiet



Confuse Ray

Double Team


Explanation: This is probably the most annoying Strategy on the list. If it weren't
for Froslass's Snow Cloak Ability this wouldn't have been possible. Snow Cloak
raises Evasiveness in a hailstorm. BrightPowder raises Evasiveness. So... use Hail
first. Then use Confuse Ray. You will be quite hard to hit and the opponent is confused
meaning that the chances of Froslass being hit is very very low. And then there's Double
Team to come yet. So use Double Team and KO the opponents team by using Avalanche
