Daruma mode prevention strategy?

0 votes

Most people despite the stat increases woud prefer a brute force one but in the dream world you can't. give him leftovers fire punch, brick break, earthquake, and stone edge. most would have flare blitz but we want to keep his hp up. for this strategy you need to be wary of stealth rock and must train speed so someone to baton pass agility woud help alot.

Speed freak what is your question? The title talks about Daruma Mode protection but what you just wrote has nothing to do with that...

Unless I'm mistaken, you don't HAVE to use Dream World so just keep Hihidaruma out of there to keep Encourage/Brute Force ability.

But if you can't avoid that ability and want to keep the physical moves then you need Rest, Sleep Talk and two physical moves like Earthquake and Flare Blitz. When you get below 50% HP use Rest to switch back to normal form and Sleep Talk so you can continue fighting.

You do know that Daruma Mode Hihidaruma are rarer? You can easily find an Encourage one ingame.
