    I got a booster box of Next Destinies. Organizing all my pulls is going to take forever. The most interesting pulls would be Zekrom EX, Mewtwo EX, Zekrom EX full art, and Reshiram EX full art. No shiny, but at least I got one at the prerelease.

    If you're going for a "sweeping" Garchomp: Shadow Claw, Brick Break (No pokemon can resist both Ghost and Fight attacks, not to mention Brick Break is useful against Ice-types), Dragon Claw and Earthquake (Both for same-type attack bonus)

    Nein.

    Substitute, Swords Dance, Outrage, Fire Punch/Earthquake.

    Rapes everything.

    Not my kind of playstyle, I normally avoid moves like Thrash or Outrage because of the self-confusion downside (Certain items and abilities remove the problem, but still...) and because it makes your next attack(s) predictable.
    And for a sweeper I try to avoid status-boosting moves. Imagine that you use Swords Dance or a similar move and then the opponent uses an attack in that turn and wipes you out (Defense/HP stats on sweepers can be low) BAM! You wasted a whole turn.

    While true, Garchomp is a bulky enough bastard to absorb something (with a Yachi berry!) and hit back in the Battle Subway.

    In compstuff it's probably best to roll otherwise.

    I've been owning everything in the Single trains with my Gallade, till I get to the third round...
    Then I get my ass handed to me.

    What the fuck.
    It's not EV trained but it's wide moveset helps.
    Leaf Blade
    Psycho Cut
    Close Combat
    X-Scizzor

    I tend to be a brute-forcer. None of my Pokemon's moves in my entire team are a pure stat-raising or lowering move. All of them do damage.
    I'm a terrible trainer.

    Edit:
    And for some reason I want a Deoxys. Not to use but... Just to own. I don't know why.
    Missed all the WiFi events to ever receive it, and never got the event in the 3rd gen games.

    Outrage is last resort move, Chomp is bulky enough to take a hit and fast enough to sweep, making him awesome.

    Welcome to the club. Not only I do that usually, but I also tend to exploit any passive advantage possibility like STAB, abilities, typing or items; even though I perfectly know that a well-used movepool with barely any attacking moves (For example: A Dusclops with an Eviolite equipped and Toxic, Protect, Confuse Ray/Thunder Wave and Ice Punch) can indeed be more effective than four attacking moves

    I remember finding out about some of these. The Hyper Beam no-recharge was pretty well known as far as I know.

    Thing is, against a team without either a SICK defensive wall or a fairly bulky steel type, outrage is going to net you 2+ kills most of the time, and since battle-subway is both terrible at prediction and their teams have no synergy together, that's all that really matters is just throwing your pokemon at the enemy until you have guys left and they don't. Battle-subway isn't really for learning to play the metagame, it's just grinding to get items and shit.

Battle-subway isn't really for learning to play the metagame, it's just grinding to get items and shit.
    But for people like me (and I would assume SuperDuperScoot and/or Jojori?), the Battle Subway can be hell. I've got great synergy for the normal game, mostly because I'm levels ahead and everyone else and can hit much harder while making use of type effectiveness... but when everyone is at the same level, you have to rely only on type-effectiveness, which can honestly be hard.

    I went in to the Battle Subway with a Serperior (Aerial Ace/Giga Drain/Wring Out/Leaf Blade), Chandelure (Will-o-Wisp/Flame Burst/Hex/Shadow Ball), and Nidoking (Ice Beam/Earthquake/Thunderbolt/Sludge Bomb). I can do great normally, but I got WIPED by a single Pokémon, I forget which, because I had no moves that were useful against it. Well, I think I had one, but it was on a Pokémon weak to one or both of its types.

    If you go into the Battle Subway without good team comp (being higher level than normal trainers != good team comp), then you're destined to get wiped by a single Pokémon that manages to poke through all your strengths and exploit a few (or all) of your weaknesses.

    Was gonna turn Sludge Bomb into Sludge Wave for a STAB. Looking into filling out a better team, thinking Feraligatr maybe (Sheer Force + Life Orb as well, Physical sweeper though) and giving him the Ice Moves, letting me put Flamethrower on Nidoking. But Feraligatr's Physical moveset that makes use of Sheer Force + Life Orb is... lacking.

    Nidoking is solid on any time for picking off non-scarf'd sweepers. Needs a physical counterpart though, yes, you're right.
