With Skill Swap:
1.If they lead of with their bouncer:
Skill swaps and gets up at least one layer
2.If they lead with something else:
Skill swap on the switch and get up at least one layer
With Dark Pulse:
1.Dark pulse twice, sash broken you might not even get one layer up.
2.Dark pulse on the switch and get up at least one layer. (if they not has Sdef Xatu lol)
What Im saying is that if you really need to get up hazards Skill Swap guarantees that 100% (ok not against scarf Darkrai), you cant argue that.
Im not saying people uses Sdef Xatu, but I think you at least have to consider all possibilities.
Also, even if Dark Pulse might be more useful in general this is still a thread for unorthodox movesets right?
