What's with flash on the Cresselia?
Swords Dance Scizor is practically an instant win button in the Battle Tower - just be wary of Choice Scarf Heatran and other things that can resist Bullet Punch and outspeed Scizor. Choice Scarf Garchomp tends to be slightly more effective than Swords Dance; things like Starmie can 1HKO it without a Scarf. Only problem with that is that Cresselia has to have a Scarf.However, that's your choice, as Swords Dance Garchomp is a nearly unstoppable force. One more thing: Substitute isn't required to set up a Swords Dance or two.It definitely helps dealing with surprise OHKOs via crits and OHKO moves, and can help it survive a hit against something that would normally outspeed it for an OHKO.I recommend replacing it on some of the sweepers with other attacking moves (e.g. X Scissor on Scizor).Might you recommend that over Superpower?
I'd perhaps suggest Swagger on Cresselia to replace Flash, as this would be effective in the instance that your opponent's first Pokémon uses a status or 'changing move' such as Trick Room or Roar, for example if your opponent uses a Skarmory and uses Roar on the first turn, it will be stuck on Roar if you used Trick, so if Cresselia is sent out again it can use Swagger to gradually reduce the opponent's HP. Another example, presume a Slowking was stuck on Trick Room you could keep swaggering the Slowking and perhaps use Trick again when its HP is quite low, so that you could recieve your Choice Scarf back and give it to the opponent's second Pokémon.I think I'll give it that. Great tip.I'm not really experienced with competitive battling, but maybe you could choose Cressellia, Latios/Garchomp and Registeel/Scizor? Cressellia, Scizor and Registeel striked the eye at first but that team might not go as well as planned because of the possibility that the opponent uses a leading Fire type Pokémon, as Cressellia and Registeel would have to rely on luck if it started off with a move like Fire Blast.I like Garchomp and Registeel for Garchomp's speed and Registeel's Ice and Dragon resistance.I was thinking that Latios might turn out to be more useful than Garchomp, because of a higher base special defense and having both a physical and special attacker (as two physical attackers might make victory harder for a mainly ground based Pokémon team for example)The idea is to have such high stats that it doesn't matter (if I'm doing it right.) I think two physical attackers should be OK.Best of luck with your attempt!Thanks!
If Zapdos uses heat wave in the battle tower it could be a problem, but I doubt it does.
