Prediction for the answer of course. I'm not going to obviously let Champ get kill from a possible Choice Bander/Spec. And with all these focus sashers and scarfGar/Azelf around, LeadMences are sh-...well you should know. Dynamic-confusion is also hard to pass up for a lead, and a very nice one rather. Machamp also isn't that frail with the provided spread unless you haven't experience one. STAB'ed shizzle doesn't guarantee OHK at times.
