How to counter priority move users

#1Pikachu222Posted 3/18/2014 12:36:00 AM
I'm not sure what's the best way to deal with pokemon that use priority moves. Do you use tanks/walls, your own priority user or what?

And how do I protect my team from prankster pokemon? A sweeper to take them out in one hit? Magic bounce pokemon? Safeguard?

Give me your best advice please.

I try to kill the opposing priority pokemon with a evem more priority attack.

Also I dunno how to counter theses demons you mentioned. Maybe taunt?

For prankster, a Heatran could absorb will o wisp, and ground pokemon could absorb thunder wave. Just one possibility.

King's Shield / Spiky Shield thwarts most priority users, particularly the former. The only priority Aegislash is really susceptible to is Aqua Jet.

Will-o-wisp (particularly Sableye's prankster WoW) also shuts most of them down.
