My plan or the core of my team was using Persian and Lucario. Persian does Fake Out and has the Technician ability. Lucario who's initial ability is Inner Focus can't flinch and then Role Play's Persians to increase the power of Force Palm. My strategy failed miserably. Where'd I go wrong? Should I have used Ambipom instead?
What style of battle is this for?
Double. I was participating in the International Wi-Fi tournament.
Wait, are you using Fake Out on your Lucario?
No. I use on one of my two opponents to give myself a chance to set up.
I think you need a stronger fighting mice than force palm, or a fighting gem
Even though close combat lowers defense, it's a helluva attack and can get you through half a team with fake out I think. Always aim for the biggest threat w fake out, then CC it to death
Copying persians abilty is a waste of a turn. You might as well calm mind or sword dance its a better boost. Plus boosting in two's is dangerous.
I was using Force Palm since it's strength is only 60, but it gets doubled to 120 once I copy Persians ability and the added benefit of possible paralysis if my opponent manages to survive the attack. I scrapped that plan though since Lucario isn't fast enough and can't really take a hit. Persian is one of my favorites though. Will I be able to challenge your gym tomorrow CF?
