Articuno + Mind Reader + Sheer Cold = legal or not and why?

#1_HarpuiaX_Posted 7/4/2009 12:52:17 PM
Topic.
Articuno can learn MR ans SC legally, and if one uses them together, it basically eliminates luck factor as well as obviously keeps the move from being too broken. I would like to know if this is legal in standard play, and would it be reasonable to allow it.

Sorry if it was already asked and I missed it. And thanks for answering.

You didn't answer the question >_> not to mention there is still a decent chance that it will hit if they switch.

No. The OHKO moves are banned completely in standard play.

Hm. What about Mean Look & Baton Pass as Umbreon before sending Articuno?

I know it might seem far-fetched and most likely that scenario would be overlooked, but would it be reasonable to allow it?

And thanks for answering.

Um why would Articuno bother to use Mind Reader on Salamence when it could probably OHKO it with Ice Beam.
#6David_741Posted 7/4/2009 1:08:15 PM
Exactly.


Anyways OHKO moves are usually banned like Double Team.

Even if you keep switching to avoid Sheer Cold , Stealth Rock would keep hitting you.

Double Team isn't an OHKO move, it doesn't even do any damage.

True, against Salamence it would be at least stupid, but if someone would say Mean Look on Blissey and BP to Articuno, it would be a nice counter for SkarmBliss, like perishtrap.

I think he meant it as "OHKO moves are banned, similar to how DT is banned."

I read it the same way...
