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

Yeah, No one uses this. I know that, Because it kinda does suck. I'd only use this if you have, like, an opposite team, Like if you had a Pokémon that was meant to be a Special attacker but you used it as a Physical attacker instead. Use it on those teams. xD

I only used this to surprise my friend in battle when they were expecting a Swords dancing Talonflame / whatever it's common set is, And it worked.
