Basically, I lead a Doubles match with Slowking and Toxicroak. Slowking has Own Tempo and Toxicroak has Dry Skin. On turn one, Toxicroak uses Flatter on Slowking which raises his SP Attack but doesn't confuse him. Meanwhile Slowking uses Surf which doesn't damage Toxicroak thanks to Dry Skin.

Now, I am sure this tactic has been used a million times before. And I am sure people will see it coming a mile away But hey, I like Slowking and Toxicroak, so why not try it out?

Any thoughts? This is for Showdown, by the way.

Why use Safeguard when Slowking can have Own Tempo? Regenerator?

Safeguard to guard against the confusion induced by swagger?

Own Tempo doesn't block status conditions.

It also helps your team.

Right there. Prevents Confusion. Did they change it this gen? Does it not work with a Flatter from a teammate?

I was talking about Toxic, Burn, and Paralysis.

I know it blocks confusion and Taunt.
