This reminds me of GSC.

Those average ~200 turn battles.

That's not the point, like I said this moveset doesn't take anything special to beat it. It's that if you misplay or you find yourself unable to beat it then you're stuck in a "lock" so to speak. :/


If you fall to PP stall like that set, it's obvious that you've misplayed. If you think you can still do something, do something, but when a strategy like that with plenty of obvious counters and countermeasures stymies you sometimes it's worth falling on your own sword.

By the way, you would have hated competitive Generation 2 - it was all about stall and passive effects. GSC even had the nickname around where I was of Great Stalling Contest.


It's not even PP Stall, it's "whoever has the most time to waste wins" The dude can make the battle last forever as he can heal your Struggles with Heal Pulse and generate PP with the berry and Recycle. He's not even aiming on winning but to make the match last forever. :'/

It's more that Struggle causes the user to lose 1/4 of their HP per attack. The Mon's going to faint fairly quickly.

And I stand by my point of lol, it's nothing compared to GSC.

Heal Pulse heals half the HP, meaning it can keep you alive even as you struggle.

Though I don't know why I care about this so much. I guess I felt really bad for Tipoo. :/

Oh right, I forgot that Heal Pulse can be targeted to your opponent.
