My friend serperior use gastro acid on me. It's been nice knowing you.
1-The fact that you need gastro acid to function means you still suck. 2-Because every Serperior has gastro acid, right? 3-We can't use you without a Pokemon that has Gastro Acid next to you. 4-Protect still works, ya know. 5-Your friend Serperior just lost a turn to help your fat ***. 6-You still have crappy special defense and lack in speed.
And most importantly:
You still suck in single battles, pal!
