That tactic isn't just cheap. It's just plain bad.

I feel sorry for you TC.

Originally, Sturdy ONLY prevented OHKO moves.. it wasn't until Gen 5 that it also got the focus sash effect. OHKO moves fail completely (i.e. no damage whatsoever) on sturdy pokemon.

The entire point behind sturdy was being immune to OHKO moves. Then they buffed it to also not be able to get OHKO'd. So basically, before they buffed it (gen 4 or 5 not sure) it only protected against fissure, sheer cold etc. Now it has the benefit of being a free focus sash as well.

Sheer Cold all the things! Other attacks are there if you can KO without Sheer Cold/the pokemon is sturdy.
