Hey guys. New here. Been playing Pokemon Online (mainly the OU tier) for about a month now, and slowly coming to terms with the meta-game. Not sure if this has been addressed before (tried searching, but nothing), but I've always had difficulty with Cloyster regardless of what my team is. One shell smash and I usually lose 2~3 pokemon (maybe even an entire team!) before taking it down. So in order to find out how people would counter the shellfish I decided to put him into my team; as a lead. To my dismay (and joy?), the answers haven't been very clear-cut yet. OHKO moves aside (which is rare if you put Cloyster as a lead), there seems to be very little that can prevent Cloyster from sweeping once it gets off a Shell Smash. Pseudo-hazers take heavy damage, or even get taken down trying to switch Cloyster out thanks to the increased crit-probability (more hits, more% to crit). So, any insight into how one would stop this...thing from going on a rampage? Whimsicott is the only one I can think of, even with that you still risk eating a non-boosted icicle spear. Thanks!
