Why isn't Prankster Riolu considered broken?

True, there are several counters to it, but lets say you have an Espeon, and 2 priority move users on your team. If all 3 are KOed, then Prankster Riolu is pretty much free to hit the win button.

Espeed wrecks Riolu.

And protect breaks the chain.

You know how often those come up?

Why isn't "XXX" considered broken?

True, there are several counters to it, but lets say your opponent removed all his counters then Pokemon "XXX" is pretty much free to hit the win button. -_-

It isn't considered broken since people can find a way to deal with it without resorting to ridiculous measures.

That's a fair point. I guess Belly Drum ESpeed Linoone could be that XXX as well.

So you lack a priority move, protect, or a magic bounce on your entire team, then your team deserves the loss.

If you see a Riolu, don't get all your counters killed.
