Best Lead Pokemon?

#1Inferno05Posted 11/11/2013 1:06:39 PM
I have a battle scheduled tonight, with only 5 pokemon choices I own competitively viable (going to just drop in the best in-game pokemon I have). I have:

Stealth Rocks/Spikes/Rapid Spin/Gyro Ball on a Relaxed Forretress
Dual Screen Espeon (or Reuniclus, both form the same purpose so I don't want to run both)
Baton-Passing Scolipede
MMawile
Special-sweeping Greninja
insert in-game-member here.

My question is, since this is a hodge-podge team I haven't tested all together (usually in 3-man groups for BM) what should I lead w/? Hazards or Screens? Also, for my Screens, Espeon for speed/bounce or Reuniclus for bulk/Focus Blast?

well, who is on the team now? I'm probably no help, but that is kinda important information.

Lead with hazards. Set your entry hazards up then switch to your screener. Set your screener up, switch to your BP. Get your boosts and substitute out, BP to Greninja and sweep.

That might work if I swap out Scolipede's SD. Right now it's running Mega Horn for Stab and anti-taunt, because it's other moves are protect, BP, and SD. But yeah, I can see that, switching to Mawile or Greninja depending on the situation. That would also let me take off the Sash for Scolipede because he'd be behind screens, he could get Black Sludge instead. So for my screens, should I go speed or bulk?

He just asked me about Prankster Meowstick, so I'm thinking Espeon over Reuniclus at this point.
