Is Toxic Spikes worth using in 3v3? (Battle Spot)

#11Misdreavus573(Topic Creator)Posted 4/2/2014 1:29:24 PM
Can we please stop talking about which Pokemon are and aren't competitively viable, because I couldn't care less.

I just want to know if Toxic Spikes are worth using on Battle Spot, on Roserade or any other Pokemon.

short answer: no.

long answer: very no. too much effort to setup for far too little reward in 3v3 singles or in any doubles/triples format.

Rule for 3v3: Is it an offensive move or a stat boost like Swords Dance? No? Drop it.

Alright, I guess not. Offensive Roserade it is then, thanks.

Does this include Toxic, WoW and Leech Seed? I've had decent success on Battle Spot with stall Pokemon.

Against opponents that were as bad as I am, anyway.

Sure, use Roserade at the battle spot, But you won't win many games.


itp: you only can win with the same 3-6 pokemon lol


itt: people who want to use sh**ty mons just to be original

I don't see that many advantages over Toxic in 3v3. At least there's no rapid spin.
