If you want to use Parasect, use Leech seed/spore/x-scissor/filler (Sub/Stun spore/idk). But honestly, I don't think it'd work out. Parasect failed -very- miserably last gen tbh but at least it got a sleep mechanic boost/leech seed this gen so...we'll see.
Alrighty. Tried bringing him with me to Smogon's Standard Ubers/Dream World Ubers on PO. He got denied. Replaced BrightPowder with Leftovers as a double take, then he got denied again.
Might consider Abomasnow, Torterra or Shedinja for replacement with him temporarily boxed for now. On the main PO server Parasect's a great boon.
