I think it should go live tonightSo are we ready to get our rear handed back to us?
Any particular tech people have readied for this tomorrow?
I'm personally hoping it's going to be phisically oriented, if anything so I can actually use the Bellibolt i've readied myself.
Every time it uses Air Cutter it uses it multiple times.Moves
so the only "gotcha" is Feather Dance (& I guess Air Cutter but, whatever)
hm looks like Iron Hands is likely out lolFeather Dance
I don't have it on me [I found it while watching Austin John Plays and I'm away from a PC that can access it at this time] but it was something with Parabolic Charge/Acid Spray/Discharge/something I don't remember [Chilling Water?]What's the Bellibolt strategy
I wouldn't mind raising one up, it's a fun excuse to use a new kinda weird Pokemon.
Think mine was Staraptor/Gardevoir/DudunsparceOnce again soloed with Miraidon, this time with Weavile/Staraptor/Garganacl.
Intimidate is always handy, especially with how often this boss throws out double attacks.
Dipped into my stash of stuff and made this a reality (with bright powder as an item)I don't have it on me [I found it while watching Austin John Plays and I'm away from a PC that can access it at this time] but it was something with Parabolic Charge/Acid Spray/Discharge/something I don't remember [Chilling Water?]
Acid Spray is here to lower SpDef, Parabolic Charge is for healing, Discharge/Thunderbolt is obligatory Electric STAB, yadda yadda
After several hit-and-miss attempts to get faster wins by joining other raids with Miraidon, I found it’s just not worth it without an orchestrated 4 man team. Even when you get 2 Miraidon 2Bellibolt, sometimes you dominate and win in like 4 turns. Sometimes you get double shot and killed until the whole team dead. Sometimes you lost just because of these double attacks causing all the animations clog and the computer says “Released Energy” despite that your teammate’s attack clearly just killed it. Too much loss to make it worth while.I beat this on my first try with Solo Corviknight, the Power Trick set. I found a Mirror Armor Dark Tera Corv in my box and decided to give it a shot.

I decided to try solo because of the slowness of this set— and yeah, I don’t think this could win unless Allies were equally unkillable.
After only one playthrough, my impression:
Decidueye only clears stats one time, basically on Turn 2 so good. But what’s REALLY crazy is how many double attacks it gets. Like I swear it’s practically a RULE that from like turn 6 it gets to attack twice for every one of my attacks.
Corv was a huuuuge champ though standing up to all those double attacks. Even lived an Crit Leaf Blade after Tera! Helps that it is faster even with no Speed EVs and able to get the roost or Shell Bell recovery.
And of course Mirror Armor blocking Feather Dance invaluable. I think it only SD’d one time though. Probably going to have to invest some PP ups because it forced me to use all 10 Power Trips.
In fact, for drama I killed it with my last Power Trip right after it started Gathering Energy. Close Call.
I think this is a good Solo build and will get better as I get better farming this raid, but will definitely want to find better options for team play.
Why Mud Slap? Wouldn’t Decidueye be immune to it?Hot take: The whole internet should stop bringing Miraidon, instead bring Chilling Water + Mud Slap Belibolt and Power Trick Corviknight and treat this like Greninja with Corvs as Slowbros. lol
it only does it once, towards the end of the fight, after which it immediately does Swords Dance and attacks you.Does Decidueye cleanse its debuffs often? I figure with the high turn spam and SD boosting, Accuracy down is a good idea since it will also Minimize Crits breaking through defense boosts.
