Classic flying type. Has STAB and 2 high-crit moves + sniper. THIS IS NOT MY LEAD

EVs: 252 Atk / 252 HP / 4 SDef
Adamant Nature

;-; No offense, but tbh, crit teams are stupid. Relying on hax is never a good thing to do.
^ Yup.
Yeah I know. This is just some random team I made up. It's almost as gimmicky as my soakninja doubles team.
Relying on luck seems fun, never know what will happen.
Coming from a guy who hates hax?
Hax actually is a legit strategy here. PotatoBlaster is someone who I would assume might be outmatched if they were to battle on ladder, due to their being a newer user in terms of their RMT activity. By manipulating the probability of a crit, they can easily destroy a crucial switchin who they probably wouldn't have had the skill to outplay. An opponent who isn't good enough to  negate the damage done by a crit would have a much higher chance of losing to these sets than they would the standard sets.
Flame, I hate when people rage over hax, because hax doesn't exist in a game I luck, which Pokemon battles are about.
I disagree with the statement that Pokemon battles are all about luck. All people easily have the capability to negate hax. Crits can be dealt with through resistances, healing, and good switches. It can also be negated entirely through the use of Battle Armor and such. People willfully choose to ignore these abilities because they feel it reduces their own chances of winning. Yet this is an option that is available to them to use, and if you feel you are losing due to crits, those abilities would have in fact increased your chances of winning. Freeze is easily dealt with through the use of Ice types, Water types (which almost always come with Scald), and Flare Blitzing Fire types. It can also be dealt with through the use of Lum Berries and Heal Bell/Aromatherapy. Or even a Natural Cure Pokemon. Blissey and Chansey can switch into attacks that freeze with ease. If your team is unable to handle being frozen, that's as much a problem with your teambuilding as would be having your team being unable to handle Scizor. There are numerous counters to hax, if your team chooses not to make use of them, it's your own fault. If your team is able to handle hax, but it happens anyways because you failed to make the correct switch-in, again your own fault. The game is more about strong teambuilding and good prediction.
