If a pokemon gets Shadow Tag and Perish Song, would it be broken?

I'd say so, but I'm not a competitive player.

There are pokemon like that. People use perish song, then switch into gothitelle or wobbuffet with shadow tag.

This guy used entrainment, I got truant, he switched into dugtrio, protect, hone claws, repeat.

He destroyed me.

No, because it would need to be able to survive long enough to endure the trapped Pokemon's attacks until Perish Song's effect kicked in.

I use a Block + Perish Song Lapras. I also have a Mean Look + Perish Song Prankster Murkrow in development. It does get a lot of rage-quits though.

I also thought of a Soundproof + Perish Song hackmon with Mean Look, use a wall like Blissey, or Shuckle, or my personal preference of Umbreon.

It does work as a strategy, but it is seen as "gimmicky" and "unfair" (just a couple of the comments I have recieved before rage-quits or after battles from various opponents).

I said Shadow Tag because I'm aware of the mean look strategy. That's why Misdreavus is one of my favorite Ghost types (Level-up access to Mean Look, Perish Song, and Pain Split is really nice.)

I knew there was something I forgot to mention!

Well Shadow Tag would mean you wouldn't have to wait a turn, which would be good. It'll probably go straight to OU if not banned as a combination, though. It depends on how it's used though; if the pokemon has better moves then it would be fine, or if it is not suited to the strategy (good attack/sp.attack, low defences/hp) then it would not be OP.

Of course, no matter what there will be people complaining it's broken because one person beats them using the strategy.

Definitely broken. Now on an Important matter....Tableflip thinks you drowned on the Pokemon Fusion Topic.
