Sturdy+Shedinja?

#1imboredwhatabouPosted 9/30/2010 9:58:02 AM
Okay my friend and I just saw a video where this guy wrecks Cynthia with a team of six level 1's abusing Sturdy+Leech Seed and he seems to think people are going to start hacking Shedinja's with Sturdy so you can't kill them. He also seems to think that said Shedinja is saved by Sturdy rom things like poison, burn, entry hazards, and confusion but I am pretty sure he is wrong on that. Anybody able to clear that up for us?

Weather damage and status damage aren't the same as attack damage. Moreover, a Focus Sash wouldn't save him from that either. So there's probably no reason to expect Sturdy to work.

If you were to hack a 2HP Shedinja in your party with Leech Seed, Pain Split, Giga Drain and Mega Drain, along with Sturdy, it would be near-unkillable.

The new Sturdy effect only works if the Pokemon is at full HP. So one way to "abuse" Sturdy is to go in with a Lv 2 (or so) Nosepass with Pain Split; they'll likely be knocked to 1 HP from the attack, then PS will bring them back to full health. Against a non-Ground/Steel/Rock Pokemon, Sandstorm will eventually take the opponent out after repeated PS.

Forgot about PS, kind of hard of hard to see what was going on in that video.

Oh I remember that vid. Yeah you need to have more than 1 hp as your full hp for sturdy to work
