    Thumbs up Sandstorm trolling

    I got the Idea for this strat yesterday and mentioned it in a reply. I decided it was amazing and tweaked it a bit. Tell me what you think.

    Double battle, 4 pokemon format.

    1 Tyranitar, holding normal gem.

    A:"Sand Stream"
    moves:
    Crunch (Stab)
    Earthquake (Super effective)
    Stone Edge (super effective+Stab)
    Giga Impact (150 power + normal gem)

    Not my main offensive pokemon but okay all-round with high Atk. his sand stream is the reason I use him.

    2 Alakazam, (unknown)

    A:Synchronize
    moves:
    Flash (troll step 1)
    Psychic (covers tyranitar`s double wakness)
    Focus Blast (offence)
    Energy Ball (covers for water)

    Spam flash then attack.

    Ferrothorn, holding Big Root

    A:Iron Barbs
    moves:
    Ingrain
    Leech Seed
    Stealth rock
    Power whip

    Uber Def combined with Troll Hp Restore (yes big root effects ingrain) breed with lileep for ingrain + stealth rock.

    4 Garchomp, holding brightpowder

    A: sand veil
    moves:
    Double Team (Cant hit me)
    Iron Head (but I can hit you)
    Dragon Rush (power)
    Fire Blast (not weak to ice anymore)

    Sand veil + Bright powder + Alakazams flash + Double team (spam of course) makes me invincible! (breed with aggaron for Iron Head)

    Please tell me what you think. Also feel free to use this strategy, I wnt be using it because I already have one.
    Good luck to those also entering spring friendly!

    Well it did give me quite a laugh. I've got a friend that uses a bright powder garchomp in the sand and boy is that thing the most annoying thing in the world. With the double team/ bright powder/ flash combo how low do 100% accuracy moves drop?

    you kill the ones with 100% accuracy moves ASAP. remember I still have a ferrothorn, alakazam, and tyranatar in good fighting condition.

    I'd suspect that, I was just wondering if you calculated how low of a percent the accuracy was. After a flash and I'd say about one to two double teams with bright powder and sand veil, you're looking at about 10-30% accuracy for all you're opponents moves (If I'd have to take a guess at the percentage)

    I never looked it up because I knew it would be that low. In most cases though I do tend to research.

    Research done... a double super effective ice beam with 100 base accuracy will have an 11% chance of hitting after 6 flashes and 3 double teams.

    I didn't call it sandstorm trolling for nothing.

    I think if you can get this team going effectively, you'll have more opponent disconnects than wins

    I don't really either, however this would be a good team to use against someone who really made you angry with cheap tactics. Revenge trolling is what it's all about in my book

    I'd say do what you have to and take out all of the terrakion/ beat up whimsicott users out that were in the last tournament. Seriously that's all I fought in the international challenge!

    Destroy ALL the terrakion with earthquake! or, of course, a swift focus blast from alakazam.

    You see me trolling
    with laughter
    it takes you a-sec
    but then you see what I did there. see what I did there.

    I'm not sure this team can work in doubles. You need some setup for your strategy which I doubt you will get the time for.
