Some Trainer Cards that boost Energy

Pokedex : An item that rearrange top 5 cards to get Energy for Intrepid Sword
Mallow : Supporter that can bring up to 2 Energy cards to the top of your deck
Clay : There is a chance to get Metal Saucer while discard Energy at the same time
Battle Compressor : discards Energy for Metal Saucer
Quick/Ultra Ball : Get your ZV onto your bench while discard Energy for Metal Saucer (if they both in your hand) 

 


Continuous Attack Tactics

Double Switch
-Use 2 cards to switch your ZV back and forth from Active Spot and Bench

 

Switch Sacrifice
-Switch your ZV with Doll or Fossil then remove it from play to bring your ZV back to Active Spot 

 

Switch Retreat
-Switch your ZV with other Pokemon then retreat it to bring your ZV back to Active Spot

 

Retreat Sacrifice
-Retreat your ZV with Doll or Fossil then remove it from play to bring your ZV back to Active Spot
-Use tool like Balloon or Float Stone to reduce ZV retreat costs
-Use Metal Saucer to recharge Energy if needed for Attack

 

Reset
-Use Support card like Pokemon Ranger or Channeler to reset your ZV "Unable to Attack"

 


Pokemon with good Combo/Synergy

There are many Pokemon that have good combo/synergy with ZV. Most popular one is the obvious ADP
Bronzong <Metal Transfer> is also common. Some may use Lucario&Melmetal for defence in instead of ADP.
There are many other that I won't give you a list here, but leave it for your fun exploration and imagination.
