Mine is "Good players don't need to use OP things to beat OP things."

Not that I'm very good at battling overall, but last Gen, I used Toxicroak to combat Garchomps.
Toxicroak.
To combat Garchomps.
It worked hilariously well somehow...

Yeah, I agree. Sometimes I end up losing a Pokemon to the expectation that my opponent knows what the hell they're doing.

because i like fre pc++ and the only one that works 100% of the time:
Expect your opponent to be dumber than a rock if you never heard of him/her.

I just got really good at anticipating the Garchomp switch-in.
My opponent would often have Heatran. I select Ice Punch as they switch to Garchomp. Garchomp would oftentimes have a Sash (sneaky Koreans), so I used Sucker Punch the next turn. It was all anticipating the switch, but Toxicroak's main purpose was to Ice Punch Garchomps.

I play a very defensive style of battle. Tons of wish passing, bulk and annoying little things such as seeds
