ATQ Regional R1 against Alamaster


jorgen: pretty sure it was ST. And yeah it's got a few problems, but it can work around other Raikou, which tends to bring most GrowthPass recipients to a halt. Sept 12, 2014 17:47:32 GMT -8
magic9mushroom: Well, as long as they don't Roar. +1 Raikou Crunch vs. other Raikou is only a 5HKO. Sept 13, 2014 0:46:56 GMT -8
Isa: If it's a Roarkou (which is what counters most recipients), the goal is to make it Rest and then proceed to dish out damage with your Baton Pass strategy. Sept 13, 2014 1:22:17 GMT -8 *
jorgen: ST Kou is still pretty tricky to get around for BP Vap. Most recipients of Growthpass (most prominently Zapdos) are still walled/murdered by it. And Kou mostly forces Vap out with Thunder, not Roar. Sept 13, 2014 5:25:54 GMT -8
Isa: Right, but if Vaporeon passes its boosts to something, I'd imagine you'll want Roar. Sept 13, 2014 6:18:39 GMT -8
jorgen: Not even. Zapdos needs to be +2 to threaten to 3HKO, and ST Kou threatens the same thing right back. Gengar can't do shit without Exploding. Egg can force it out, but if it's just its attacks you're worried about, it's not too tough to wall. Sept 13, 2014 8:03:23 GMT -8
jorgen: Roar is mainly for Growth Jolt, who can continue to just boost in your face. Growth-pass Vap is actually better countered by ST Kou. Sept 13, 2014 8:04:06 GMT -8
jorgen: (At least defensively anyway, the REAL main purpose of Roar on Kou is Spikes shuffling) Sept 13, 2014 8:05:02 GMT -8
Isa: Missed signups for POCL? Sign up again! Sept 14, 2014 8:17:21 GMT -8
