Just to add the Blissey one has increased XP Candy so it’s gonna be another grinding session. Runs through the same period as Decidueye’s second run
If I recall the news also mentions Blissey dropping a lot of Tera Shards, and I'll be curious to see if she retains her high HM drop rate from the regular Raid version.Looking at my maxed out candy stock I thought this blissey thing was just not as good a farm as Decidueye— but forgot that both are going on together so you can actually farm both!!
Blissey gonna be good for my daughters’ candy low games.
Pikachu did have a "second shield" phase, but it only mattered if you got it below 40% then launched another attack that didn't KO. Someone who didn't tera wouldn't get that deep into the health bar, and if you did with reasonably strong attacks then you might skip clear over it.This made me think, that they did introduce a new mechanic with this raid, "I attack twice now".
I have to say, they are at least being creative.
They were NOT kidding about this, Ive gotten around 30 tera shards of 1 type from these Blisseys before, and also gotten 5 of MULTIPLE tera shard types in the same raid.If I recall the news also mentions Blissey dropping a lot of Tera Shards, and I'll be curious to see if she retains her high HM drop rate from the regular Raid version.
I found that just flying to each raid and doing it myself took less time. I think I cleared all of my Blisseys in about 20 minutes.The debate: Is it faster to reset for/walk to your own Blisseys to solo, or repeatedly load up into the center?
Right now I’m a fan of not walking, and the raids seem pretty easy to join. Only thing is accidentally clicking Decidueye (which is fine cause got Miraidon loaded up too). Decidueye still seems less reliable win with others— seems easier to accidentally trigger shield even with more people on top of charging/Metal Sounding into the one shot now.
It’s amazing how Belly Drum + Life Orb + Super Effective STAB anything one shots Blissey, so 2HKO pretty standard imo. Apparently Guts Ursarig can do the same with neutral Facade so between it and Iron Hands you can 2HKO everything besides Ghost. I believe I saw CB Koraidon also OHKOs on super effective hit? So yeah S tier for that I guess.
Tbh after I had a FF8 crash losing me 2 hours of progress when i was like 15, I've just taken the habit of save every game all the time, usually twice...Like my parents said when I was a kid (and they’d take away my gameboy after a certain amount of time), save after every battle.
I've actually seen a bunch of these as well and I have no idea where they come from. Like sure, could be from Blissey raid but... there were so many better options?Is Guts Facade Ursaring a new beatstick meta in general or just something pulled out to speedrun blissey raids, because I've seen 3 of them in a row now
"it resists both stab and has supereffective stab so must be good"Can someone please explain to me why Chien Po is an option in Deci raids according to some random players? I like doing random raids because I never know when the car crash will happen but with Chien Po the car crash has happened before you get out of the starting gate. Officially avoiding that mon like the plague now.
It only resists the Ghost STAB, and not Grass or Flying."it resists both stab and has supereffective stab so must be good"
fwiw, Chien Pao is actually solid for Blissey, though.
People shouldn’t turn off autosave anyway ;) - pretty sure it saves after battles and flying. I still manually save all the time anyway tho, outta habit.Tbh after I had a FF8 crash losing me 2 hours of progress when i was like 15, I've just taken the habit of save every game all the time, usually twice...
People need more game-crash-ptsd

A quick search on google did return me a recent YT vid about itso maybe this youtuber or some other popularized it.
Tbfh maybe when Ursaluna comes out that may be a hidden op build for raids
It’s funny when people bring seemingly stupid random NFEs, yet somehow it turns out that despite the questionable optimization of the build the player is actually good and actually was key to winning. I once saw an Arctibax in Pikachu and thought wtf? And it wasn’t no Clodsire tier but Eviolite Arctibax somehow not getting killed repeatedly by Iron Tail while it Paralized Pika with Dragon’s breath, threw up smart Cheers and Helping Hands.
