    I was playing white, doing a random matchup rotation battle. I versed someone who had a lv 1 aron in her party, first i laughed wondering why she had such a low levelled pokemon with the big boys. I started to battle her and saw that she had chosen the aron, this will be pretty easy i thought. The Aron comes in, i use energy ball with my simisage. What's this? Sturdy? Aron is left at 1 hp. I knew what came next: endeavor. No worries i thought, i'll ko him next turn, but then....shell bell. Aron restores ALL of his hp, making sturdy reusable. And since this is a rotation battle, machamp switches in next turn, uses dynamic punch for the 2hit KO.
    I ended up losing that match with my Simisage, Emboar, Lilligant and Carracosta koing only the opponents Alomomola, leaving Machamp, Politoed and that pesky Aron still in the battle.

    So what are your thoughts on this combination?

    Has this happened to you?

    Are there any other cheap but effective combinations you have made or witnessed?

    post your answers below.

    I think they need to patch that. Its the only reason I'm not playing online right now.

    What do you mean "patch that"? There is nothing to fix, as all the mechanics are working as (it appears to be) intended. It's not that hard to counter, pokemon immune to sandstorm, multi hit moves, Pokemon with Mold Breaker, Ghost Pokemon, running Hail/Rain/Sun, Fake Out, ect. are all valid counters to this strategy

    Edit: Protect, Burn/paralysis...

    Yeah...annoying...but not that hard to get around. Plus doesn't End. only have like 8 PP max? I could just PP stall it with like half my gen 5 team (Sp Wall Toed, Scarf Genosect, Agility Mixed Lightningrod Seaking, Physical Sharpedo, Ferrothorn, and SubSeed Whimsicott).

    @Porii Sames:

    Where did u get genesect from?
    BTW, 8 pp is enough to beat 4 pokemon in a rotation battle

    @RB Golbat:

    How does rain dance and sunny day help?

    @vaporeon:

    Like RB Golbat said, what do u mean, "patch that"? And how would they patch it?

    If you have to ask that question then you already know where he got it.

    Sure its easy to stop if you're ready it. Anything is easy to stop if you see it coming. The thing is that wifi allows any level pokemon to enter. They need to patch the ability to allow it to be used once or change the way shell bell works or something. It was bad enough with Ratatta and not I have to deal with it with a Pokemon that can be invincible that can take out a whole team. Even if I had a counter, I'd have to switch it in or let it kill of my current poke. Plus every other stat inducing move is unreliable if I get only one shot to use it. What if my burn misses. A lot of people don't use multi-attack moves.

    If its not hard to counter then people need to allow OHKO attack and evasion mods as well as luck items because they all have about 10 counters.

    I go on Pokemon Online, like Shoddy.

    @Vaporeon

    FEAR is insanely easy to stop, dude. And if one of their POkemon doesn't KO one of yours and dies itself, it failed its job. And it has nothing to do with hax either...

    @Porii Sames:
    of course FEAR can be stopped easily but so can aron, the problem is that aron is deadly in rotation battles, same with FEAR.

    BTW,this was posted using a DSi!

    All it takes is one ghost on the team. Can't be effected by endeavor. Free switch in. Hail, burn, entry hazzard, there's plenty of ways to beat it.
