So take off Sunny Day and Protect for Encore and Memento? Except Encore is illegal with Memento iirc. Or am I thinking of Beat Up?
And how exactly do I use Protect Durant? I have no idea. I'm assuming Entrainment, switch to Dragonite, use Protect, then switch back on a Truant turn and spam Protect to stall things like Curse Registeel out of 16 PP, making the stall war with Dragonite significantly easier? I recently had a 95 turn stall war with a Curse Registeel, only winning by 6 Dragon Dance PP.
What do I do against Fire-types? Switching Durant into it is suicide when Whimsicott also draws Fire attacks (I wouldn't do it period anyway), and I'm risking things like Moltres breaking Dragonite's Sub with Air Slash and preventing me from setting up. Do I simply sac Whimsicott and Durant and put myself in a 1-3 situation, though I usually win these situations.
Also, is there anything I can do about Explosion? They still KO themselves if I use Protect.
And I also see the merits of Encore over Protect, as it still accomplishes not allowing the opponent to use Protect/Detect after using Taunt like what Protect is supposed to help accomplish.
And I'll change Dragonite's EV spread. I was thinking about that a while ago but I was too lazy to re-EV it, even though it is only one stat.
Also, what do I do if I Truant a lead Curse Registeel/Steelix/Bastiodon? I lose due to misplay? And I'm guessing they'll most likely Curse first turn, giving it away when I use Taunt? With Truant, they can easily outstall me.
Also, I really don't see anything I can do against Flame Charge users. Encore Flame Charge and set up Dragonite?
So Whimsicott and Dragonite should look like these?
Whimsicott @ Focus Sash
252 HP/4 SpD/252 Speed
Knock Off (prevents stuff like Quick Claw Emboar from wrecking me)
Dragonite @ Leftovers
252 HP/252 Atk/4 Speed
