the fact you never once mentioned mold breaker as a threat to your team even when questioned is one thing. the fact that you just said "I actually planned to continue this streak until I encountered a Pinsir" lead is another altogether, especially because what you meant is that you realized this without actually encountering it. if you knew lead mold breaker pinsir was a huge threat to your team well before i posted, why would you keep playing? you say you planned to continue your streak until you realized this, so you either knew this all along, actually kept playing, and stopped because you somehow rationally finally came to terms with the #1 threat to you team, or you didn't realize it and you're being dishonest with us againI can't ask what people think are threats to a team in case I missed out any? I had already done over 200 battles by the time I asked it here, aware of the threats you mentioned. However, I hadn't spent forever going through every pokemon in the tower thinking about what combination can defeat me. So I thought it was very possible I had overlooked something. Assuming that I couldn't have possibly noticed that Mold Breaker is trouble for Shedinja is pretty arrogant from your part. You know a lot about this game because you play much more than most of us, but it doesn't make you omniscient and certainly doesn't give you the right to insult people...
and if mold breaker pinsir really is the "only threat to your team", then im either some kind of omniscient genius who thought of it in like a minute or you are exaggerating at how invincible your team is after just 250-300 real battles (1-49 don't really say anything if you used it to play those battles). peterko didnt face any yanmega leads in more than double the battles you claim to have played with your team and did not know how much of a threat it was until i pointed it out, so what makes you so much of a theorymon expert that you 100% know that mold breaker pinsir is the only threat to your team?
and yes i'm not hiding it, you're not one of my favorite people and i can say the same for a lot of other people who follow this thread after the shit you pulled trying to pass off emulator play as a record
1) yes, that's the best you can do unless you decide to go with yawn on uxie over safeguard which i still recommend since the only thing safeguard is helping your team with can be addressed with rest on latios, where yawn is more helpful to your team than any advantage recover has over rest (minimal imo)1) Yanmega would, of course, still be faster than Scizor and be able to select Air Slash which can CH or flinch. Is that really the best I can do?
2) Right now, this problem doesn't even exist for me, but it would if I changed single-attack Life Orb Scizor for two-attack Scizor without Life Orb, as most people here, including you, prefer. With only one Swords Dance, Life Orb would be required for the OHKO, with Metal Coat it would not safely OHKO and without a boosting item, Yanmega couldn't be OHKOed without a CH. So how exactly would you deal with it? Try to SD twice or Bullet Punch twice?
2) so with yawn, you will be better able to SD twice against yanmega and put yourself in a position to win the battle. i personally just SD once and kill it even if yanmega is at -3 accuracy or worse because yanmega sucks.
roostAS = Aura Sphere? How does that beat Salamence?
i put eq on mine to deal with curse steelix, curse registeel and magnezone in general (magnet pull). and it was trick, flash and light screen over roar because i had salamence to intimidate anything i wanted to (and set up easily on an eq-locked enemy metagross). you might decide you need reflect instead of LS but it depends on your other two pokesAnd just out of curiosity, Metagross would be packing Trick, Flash, Reflect and Light Screen or would you use it with some means of attacking?
if you do you'd want a ground resist/immunity, somehow salamence springs to mind but that misses electric and if you went lati@s then luke would have to carry you a lotRight, I overlooked Starmie somehow. Lucario would be the more likely choice then, because I don't like how Registeel cries out loud for crits.
