That being said, I've always viewed using TrickFloon as "cheap," but we play to win on Smogon so it doesn't really matter. I use SubOran, which rocks against things that are faster than you but can't KO. As they attack I set up a Substitute, which means I am now faster and behind a Substitute. STAB Shadow Ball doesn't hit quite as hard as Gastly's, but it is still generally enough to do the job.
:0 Huh. I was not aware of that glitch, now I feel like an ass for taking advantage of it. Dx (Like the Oran non-activation glitch in SS.) I don't suppose there's any chance of getting those glitches fixed any time soon? :\
I'm a little confused about your explanation of SubOran Floon.... I assume you're trying to say that you repeatedly set up Subs until Oran activates? :0 (Speaking of that, I think that might also affected by the passive damage Oran glitch.) But it seems like SubGastly is still better... all SubFloon really has going for it is Unburden, right?
@ Heysup: I had success with TrickFloon as a lead, actually... (stealing Focus Sash helps with Munch's Pursuit sometimes) but as I said, I wasn't aware that it was a glitch, so you can expect me not to use it anymore. x\ Too bad, I was enjoying it. Dx
