Which is more reliable? I can baton pass the sub, and protect is a free speed boost. He also has double team and swords dance

Assuming your team isn't being used in competitive play, because you're using Double Team, I'd go with sub. After using DT you can hope for the miss on sub.

Use Substitute. It's your best bet, and inflicting some damage will still be alright (I mean, in the worst of situations anyway).

However, I'd recommend choosing another move. You haven't got any physical moves except for Baton Pass. Try Shadow Ball or Giga Drain... it really is your choice though.

Ninjask @ Focus Sash
Nature: Jolly
Trait: Speed Boost
EV spread:252 Atk, 252 Spd, 4 HP


  • Baton Pass
  • X-Scissors
  • Sword Dance
  • Protect

This set works best for Ninjask being a batonpasser, but beware, you should be careful, because a Pokemon with strong priority moves can stop this plan(like Scizor). When the battle starts, use Swords Dance, then use protect to get speed boost activated.Then baton pass out to physical sweeper (recommended.
