Is Gliscor without Poison Heal a bad idea?

#1FroakieblokePosted 4/6/2014 6:48:27 AM
I need a defogger preferably not weak to rock for a flying monotype. I want to use Gliscor, but of course defog is incompatible with poison heal. I wasn't planning on a traditional stall set anyway, but is he really any good without it? I wouldn't really use this in teams other than this monotype for a league, but I want to know if it's really worth it.

To answer your question, imagine what it would be like to use defog Xatu without magic bounce.

Okay, that isn't really fair. Gliscor isn't totally unviable without poison heal. But he certainly isn't as good without it. Immunity to status is a huge deal after all. And he doesn't have a ton of switch in opportunities without poison heal either.

Yes it would. Bank hack checks are virtually non-existent.

If you run poison heal, then you almost always must run Protect and a toxic orb.
Since you also want defog here you only have two slots left to attack, and you've barred yourself from Acrobatics because Toxic Orb. He really doesn't learn any other good flying attacks.
