I thought, why not exploit a pokemon's low stats in a good way? Say my foe is a gliscor, it has good stats all around, except for its special attack. Now in competitive play, nobody would put special moves on him since his attack is much better. He doesn't have any good special stat boosters, and you wouldn't invest EVs in his special attack.
Swagger/Flatter:Use the opposite to boost foe's stats (use flatter on Gliscor, use swagger on Alakazam) The confusion also helps in the fact that your opponent can either chance getting hurt by confusion, or give you a free switch by changing pokemon.
Punishment- power is now 100 thanks to swagger/flatter ( I was thinking of using Houndoom or some dark type for this, punishment would get STAB as well, taking it up to 150, assuming no other stat boosts. the only problem with houndoom is the fact that he can't learn flatter)
Mixed sweepers-These guys still benefit from it, it only works well with them, and can hit hard with that boosted power.
Switching-Though I get a free switch, that wastes my strategy.
Punishment's PP-It only has 5 PP, and even with the max PP boosters, it still doesn't have much.
Can you tell me:
- what you think of this?
-Any moves that can help even more?
-Any other flaws in it that I need to improve?
-Anything else you think is important?
