With Skill Swap it could be used to weaken an opponent.


Isn't Skill Swap used to swap an allies ability?

No it isn't. All it does is make sure Regigias isn't overpowered.


Yep. Game Freak prevents it from being overpowered by making it the worst Pokemon in the game.

Well gawsh, it must be quite the pain to take up several turns skill swapping the SLOW START onto an opponent's Pokemon, while they overdrive-wail on you.


Well, after one turn you'd have a fully operation Regigigas. The second would pretty much just be trolling the opponent. But yeah, its definitely a risky move.


No. Changing Regigigas' ability before it's awake leaves it slowed down forever. (Or at least until you switch him out, then back in, then wait 5 turns.)

You would be better off using Worry Seed or Gastro Acid on Regigigas, then Skill Swap.

Apparently this was only true in the Japanese version of D/P. It should work now. I've never tried though.

Entrainment and Simple Beam work as well.
