Yea, I know about the ground weakness, but I just planned on covering it with my two levitaters. And really putting ape in was my best option, that or I was thinking about azelf, but I lose the priority.
That's true. However, I never compare crits to move misses. When you decided to use fire blast, you accepted that you would take the chance of missing for increased power. I did nothing to increase my chance of being critically hit :P.
