Talonflame @ Power Herb
Trait: Gale Wings
EVS: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Fly (gets used straight away with power herb)
- Acrobatics (doubles attack once Power herb's been used)
- Flare Blitz (cover against steel, grass and bugs)
- Swords Dance (when predicted opponent switches out)

Tried and tested - works well.

I don't like this Talonflame, it made me lose a lot :(
I'm just suggesting, maybe you used it wrongly. It works wonders on my team, but thanks for positive comment when there are dozens that don't work properly like above… flying gem; lol….. doesn't even exist on x/y

Ok........this is a weird one, but at least try it before you insult it

Nature: Jolly (+Spd, -SAtk)

Item: Focus Sash

Ability: Gale Wings

EVs: 252 Atk, 252 Spd

Swords Dance - Doubles attack

Flame Charge - STAB, Increases speed

Acrobatics - STAB, Priority, Amazing power when Sash breaks + Swords Dance

There're two options for the final move. You could go with Steel Wing if you want to deal with Rock types , or Roost if you feel uncomfortable fighting at 1 hp.
