First, another rather boring record. I finally managed to beat Argenta and the Battle Hall; watch this
. ;) Later, I got kicked out with 202 wins because of that
. For the curious, the set was Sash, SD, EQ, Outrage, Flamethrower throughout the run. Maybe I'll also do 170+ with other Pokémon. Maybe I'll even use Infernape again, though the first 5 types are really annoying sometimes (Poliwrath, Blastoise, Uxie, Gallade etc. are like perfect counters) and Argenta did cheat me out at 169 again. :D
Second, I need a bit help from you more experienced Trick abusers. I was playing by that strategy the first time and somewhere long before 100, I met Tinted Lens Yanmega
. For some reason, I believe that a simple Trick could have saved me from all that trouble, so Scizor could have wasted the 10 Bug Buzzes and I even knew it was Yanmega 4 because of the trainer... But I think I was afraid of Speed Boost Air Slash which would actually never happen, huh. Any opinions?
Besides, I was thinking about replacing Latios with Latias for more bulk, but then damage calculations told me that Latias's Substitute would have been broken after one CM as well (so what is that -2 from Memento good for anyway </sarcasm>, no, Uxie and Memento are great in most cases). That's why I'm sticking to Latios for the next try. Though, I might change the EVs a bit, so that it packs 161 HP which would allow it to create five Substitutes without Recovering. Any opinions there, again? The team, in short, would be:
~ Uxie: Choice Scarf, Trick, Thunder Wave, Safeguard (need status proof against stuff like Jolteon or random side effects in some cases), Memento
~ Scizor: Life Orb, Substitute, Swords Dance, Roost, Bullet Punch (I like this defensive version more than the offensive 2-attack set, because it can, for example, stall Heracross out of those vicious Megahorns, still get +6 and packs a more devastating Bullet Punch then)
~ Latios: Leftovers, Substitute, Calm Mind, Recover, Dragon Pulse (Uxie protects him from status ailments, so I can Recover, which only leaves me vulnerable for one turn instead of three, it also did save me from Kingdra 4 in another close match)
Thanks in advance for help.
