Does Soak work on Shedinja?

I've been thinkin, what if we could get a Ligthningrod user to use Soak on Shedinja in doubles?

Wonder Guard only prevents damage... so, yeah... you can hit it with Soak.

More of a Pokemon fan than TherianReturns will ever be.
Snowflame is greatest comic villain ever made. Shame on DC for letting him fade into obscurity.

Woah, cool. Now I guess the issue now is how to make Seaking useful.

I was thinking, lead with Rhyperion and Seaking. Switch Rhy to Shed, then use Soak on Shed and pray to god they don't kill either pokemon.

Problem is they only have to kill the lighting rod Pokemon first, plus you have to waste a slot and a turn getting it started, and then the soak Pokemon has to be fast which probably narrows it down to a useless Pokemon. And then Shedinja dies at any sandstorm/toxic.

6-0

There's a glaring weakness to grass. And nothing on that team is particularly fast either.

I really wanna make this work somehow... Lemme modify it a bit.

After running into a few more sun teams, I ran into this thinking "Finally, a nice, normal team I can try this on."

Then he TRACED WONDERGUARD.

I give up. It sounds like a really cool idea, but there aren't enough good Soak users to make it work. I'll come back to this idea in Gen 6.

FINALLY won one. This team isn't worth it overall though.

Your struggle to make a niche work.

That's hilarious.

Keep trying, you'll probably find something if you look hard enough.
