I used this against my friends, as well as a few battles. He's on one of my gimmick teams, but honestly I never find the right situation, or the battle's ever before he gets his time time shine

[email protected] Berry(this depends on what you think you'll be facing, the confusion berries do weird stuff)
ability- technician
switcheroo- to swap your item over
Pluck- you'll see, coverage, technician boost
Fling- all will be explained, technician boost
Recycle- ^
This one is fun to use. You swap your item over, so you (hopefully) get a beneficial item, and the other guy isn't taking damage so they can't use the berry. Then you pluck your berry back, fling the other guy's item back to them, recycle your berry back, and you can start again. This does not do a lot of damage, but paired with some double toxic spikes, this can sweep. sort of.
