I'm thinking of making a mega Banette to spam metronome and I thought this might work but I'm quite new to Pokemon so if anyone can tell me if it's good that'll be nice thx

This is for competitive, right? What format?

Not really. Here’s some pros and cons:

- Very easily countered by Dark types due to the prankster nerf
- Your opponent could easily switch, negating the Taunt
- Your opponent may not deal enough damage to knock you out, forcing you to risk a 50% chance of Destiny Bond failing if you use it again

- Counters setup sweepers really well because if they switched out they lose all their stat boosts anyways

A much better set would be

Bannete-Mega @ Bannetite
Ability: Frisk—->Prankster
Adamant Nature
EVs: 40 HP/216 Spe/252 Atk
- Destiny Bond
- Shadow Claw
- Gunk Shot
- Knock Off
Description: You want to be careful not to rely too much on Prankster, and try to take advantage of Mega Bannete’s gargantuan attack stat. This set was borrowed from smogon by the way.
