The 3 people that play this have gotten lonely! Let's join them in this wacky tier filled with unique threats like rain teams, Voltorb, and Larvitar. While still similar to SM LC, ADV differs in a few important ways. Eviolite, Choice Scarf, and Life Orb haven't been invented yet, so items such as Sitrus Berry, Choice Band, type-boosters, and pinch berries reign supreme. There's also the special/physical split! All moves of a given type are either physical or special; for example, because Water is a special type, both Waterfall and Surf are special moves.
