I'm currently trying to design a good three-man team for Gen V specifically. And is also not utilizing any legendaries. For 1v1 battles.
I want my team leader to be Zoroark, and I have decided on Braviary for direct support of the team leader. But I am terribly lost trying to decide a third member. Any advice?
What exactly can be done to make this work? Nothing is going to happen unless Flareon is afflicted with a Status Ailment. From what I understand, Flareon can't be afflicted with burn, because it's a Fire type. Paralysis is too much of a hairy trigger and would hinder at a flip of a coin. Sleep and Frozen completely disable the ability to fight, so really, only Poison can cause Flareon to be able to make use of it's Guts ability.
To cause Poison to self, you would need to utilize a Toxic Orb, which is a Badly Poisoned status, which is generally far too efficient.
How exactly can this be turned into an advantage for Flareon?
