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?

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.
