I'd just like to give a special SCREW YOU to the first Gorigan fight in Pokemon XD. That fight alone forced me to use Pidgeot on my XD team. I mean, seriously, a pre-ending DEDICATED Protect+EQ team!? In addition, there weren't a whole lot of Pokemon immune to Earthquake you could use in XD to my recollection. Even though none of his mons get STAB, the Earthquakes still hit pretty hard.
But that's not all. At the same time, I was trying to capture his Primeape and Hypno while all this crap was happening, and, btw neither of the two have Protect so they can die rather quickly and they have powerful Shadow moves you have to be wary of. It was hell for me to get through this fight as a kid. I think I played it at least 15 times before I won, and it was after my Arbok had finished spamming Shadow Half and was down to only 3 HP, not to mention it was the only Pokemon still alive. So yeah, that battle was hard as hell.
Cipher Admin Dakim also runs an EQ+Protect team in Pokemon Colleseum. His shadow Pokemon, Entei, does not have Protect. Also, Entei has a very low capture rate in Collesseum, so it is difficult to capture, especially since Shadow Rush does recoil damage.
But then again he does use a Metang.
Then there is Cipher Admin Venus, Attract team that also spreads other status around. So frustrating.
Cipher Admin Ein has a Rain Dance/Thunder team.
Then there is Evice, who has his Slowking use Skill Swap on his Slaking, which proceeds to go on a rampage with Earthquake.
