Strategy Using Ninjask

Well, here it is, the fastest Pokemon in the game...until Speed Deoxys is released. Anyways, Ninjask is a pretty decent Pokemon but its defenses are pretty bad.
Use this Pokemon carefully, sure, it can learn Swords dance, baton pass and its ability allows for its speed to increase each turn, but that doesn't mean anything if its KOed straight away.
Obviously, if you think you can pull it off, swords dance to power up attack and its ability will automatically come into effect, so Baton pass this strength to maybe a Physical sweeper on your team.
Silver wind has got to be used on this Pokemon, STABBED up, its strength is 90 and it has a 10% chance of raising all stats. Use Shadow ball too, its a good Psychic Pokemon killer (like Alakazam, Attack Deoxys, R/S Deoxys) and most Pokemon with poor defense too.
This is one of the better Baton passers in the game, but like I mentioned previously, its defenses are poor. I haven't used this Pokemon before, I tend to do what you're supposed to do in the games and collect 'em all, after looking at its stats, movepool and ability, I'm considering using this one.
There is no point in putting EV's into its speed, it has little rivalry for speed, so spread them between its defenses. Again, there isn't any point in given it a nature to boost its speed, so give it one that boosts its attack or either defense.
Overall, it has other possibilities as a Pokemon, with a moveset like: Swords dance, Shadow ball, Silverwind, HP Fighting/Aerial ace, for example. But its easily defeated with super effective or normal damaging moves.
