That's rather inaccurate to me. Tentacruel can just stay in on the most likely user of Trick = Darkrai. Darkrai cannot eliminate Tentacruel without Nasty Plot as even Thunder fails to 2HKO without Life Orb. Tentacruel can survive Dark Pulse easily while Darkrai is forced to take Black Sludge damage. If Darkrai tries to trick to another opponent, Tentacruel can just come in again since Darkrai struggles to take out Tentacruel. Oh yeah Tentacruel beats Trick Jirachi too unless it has Zen Headbutt.
We can continue the Tentacruel argument anytime :P Also Tentacruel is the only spinner not immediately KOed by Dialga or Kyogre.
NOTE: Fireburn wants HIDE TAGS
instead of Codes so use it!
Also, BS why did Fireburn removed some parts of the OP ;_;
I thought Fireburn will post some Ho-Oh combinations but he didn't probs cuz he's afraid of Gyarados.
