But if you switch out, won't you get your normal ability back?

And what's stopping talonflame from just setting up with sword dance? It can't even be burned.


Power Split that bro.


Situation,

I have Whimsicott in play, my Opponent has TalonFlame.

This is an obvious Brave Bird.

I switch into my Eject Button Cofagrigus, get hit, give TalonFlame Mummy, and then switch into Slaking.

Opponent now uses U-turn, but wait!

Slaking used Pursuit!

If Cynthia were to be your Sidekick, you'd end up being her sidekick instead.
And thus, you end up as a comedy relief sidekick, http://i.imgur.com/EZG0Fx2.jpg

talonflame hits coffy once/twice, uses roost and just switches out to something that doesn't mind a crippled coffy or mummy?

???

cofagrigus would only work against mega kang because it doesn't want to be burned, talonflame wouldn't really care.

this all seems so unnecessary for getting rid of a pokemon that isn't even that hard to deal with, but if you wanna be creative, then i'm not gonna stop you or anything.

also, if the talonflame opts to switch out instead of u turn, your slaking is dead weight. if anyone has enough sense not to give slaking mummy, it's useless.

Pursuit hits the opponent before they are able to switch out, and if they DO switch out, Pursuit's power is doubled...

Hence, Cofagrigus Eject Button, in comes in Slaking same turn. Pursuit will hit even if they attempt to switch out. Truant is gone and Slaking is free to sweep.

Very classic strategy that everyone can see a mile away via team preview.

But that talonflame is trapped by pursuit. It can't switch out without getting hit regardless.

It works with any ability, provided your Pokemon has Pursuit to guarantee the hit on the Opponent.

It would, but Regigigas does not get Pursuit or, well, anything else that could help it.

This is simply amazing, seeing things like this, V-create Liepard, Funbro, is the reason this game is so fascinating.
