I forgot about this set.

EWWW ROTOM-W

enter image description here
Talonflame @ Liechi Berry
Trait: Gale Wings
EVs: 48 HP / 252 Atk / 208 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Brave Bird
- Flare Blitz
- Swords Dance
- Natural Gift

Oh hai Rotom-W. :>. I see you want to wall me.
Here have a Natural Gift to the face which is now a Grass Type attack <3!
Works on T-Tar too :I
Yeah it's one-time off really, but it does let you potentially take out Rotom-W, which is the answer most teams carry for Talonflame imo. Take down Rotom-W = BB spam time :D!

Alternatively, run Salac Berry to get a fighting attack and wreck Heatran. :D!

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.

Talonflame @ Choice Specs
Ability: Gale Wings
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Modest Nature
- Hidden Power [Ice]
- Flamethrower/Fire blast
- Solar Beam
- Air Cutter/Round/Overheat

BEFORE you rage at me, read what I have to say about this, please! :3

Alright, so NO ONE I know uses special Talonlame, besides me. XD BUT when I've used it in the past it seemed effective to hit physical walls!
This set should be used in the sun ONLY, because of solarbeam! HP ice is used to fight dragons, most of which are X4 weak to ice! Flamethrower/Fire blast is your fire STAB that also gets powered up in the sun. Solar beam counters Rock, ground & water, two of those you are weak to. Now the last slot is really your choice, Air cutter is your best special flying STAB, which deals...decent damage I guess. Round is great in doubles if your team member also uses round, Or overheat is a final "F*** you" to the opponent before you die! :3
