Arbok: Shed Skin or Intimidate for a Coil sweeper set?

0 votes

Every other place I've searched gave me "Intimidate/Shed Skin." I would like to know which one's better.

Shed Skin; in the event you get burnt, at least your physical set will have a chance of not being completely ruined.

Coil will raise your defence anyway.

EDIT: also my reasoning for not going for Intimidate is that it only works when Arbok switches in, and all your opponent needs to do is switch Pokemon for the effect to be nullified.

My answer is Intimidate. It plus Coil = alot of defence. It also helps you survive for more turns so that you can use Coil more. Also try Coil + Salac Berry.
Also, if your opponent decides to change Pokemon, you get to use Coil while they are switching out. Also, Shed Skin doesnt always work, Intimidate does. I hope this helps you!
