    Making wobbufett switch out is not a counter,but people main arguement for wobbufett being broken is not being able to switch out,and Good percentage of pokemon make wobbufett switch so the trap is basically usless.Yes you can get some free hitless switch in with wobbufett on your team, but that is pokemon,the question is can i get my poke take as little damage as a possible on switch in and make you switchout that poke and switch in a poke that has to take some damage too.

    Also i was wrong about roar to a extent.Roar goes last,so encore goes before and use the last move.So if skarm use drill peck,and wobby switch in on the drill peck,then skarmory use roar and wobby use encore,since roar has not happen,encore uses last move which was drill peck.Werid stupid R/S roaring.They are still some scenarios where you roar wobby out,you can't call psuedo hazing counter for wobby.

    Imo the best way of dealing with wobbufett,is similar dealing with blissey,if you can't trap it,Then take out all other pokes or important poke.In most case i don't care if can't take out blissey right away but if i can take out your skarmory,fortress,suicune then blissey fall because it has no wall to hide behind.The same thing with wobbufett don't worry about killing it early,all you need is get rid of poke that is threat stop to your sweep.If i have a gyrados,I am going to try to put the biggest dents on skamory, and zapdos,once those pokes are the out of the way it is clear sailing.Like Blissey the more pokemon you beat its team the more useless it becomes.

    I don't like that he eliminates all walls from the game and gives [pokemon] both a free switch in and a free move. Who says you even have to use Wobbuffet? He does his job just being available, I don't want to have to choose between dieing to Wobbuffet or dieing to Heracross.

    uh. I thoguht the ENTIRE POINT of using wobby was to encore something, switch out, and get a free move.

    no, normally it would encore then counter/mirror coat if it's a damaging attack, but most people don't fall so easily now, they prefer to use CMind, LSeed, etc.

    I like the part when you switch out to a physical sweeper after the initial calm mind. Also stuff like venosaur (out of the top of my head) laughs at LS/Toxic.
