never had such good luck vs. scarf jirachi

btw, been trying out power herb sky attack aero as my lead, and it's really underwhelming. Constantly scared of scarfed leads without sash, and sky attack is basically just for machamp which I'm not seeing very often

I guess sash aero was a common lead for a while so a lot of teams adapted to it. Aero has a lot more bad match ups than other pokemon it seems. Jirachi is an issue. Metagross is an issue. Trick scarf uxie is a surprising issue for aero. Machamp is an issue if you don't run sky attack. All in all, priority+50/50 plays are the downfall of aero, but still has some use on offensive teams if you absolutely need to prevent your opponent from laying rocks down.

Yeah that's the thing, I should have just replaced aero when I realized my team wasn't that concerned with rocks. It's extremely reliable at getting rocks up but aside from that, I think it's time to go with another lead

tfw someone runs a stallbreaker vs your stall team

it's because you linked it with a space at the end, translates to like %20 or something in computer speak and thus 404

also I really enjoyed seeing your momo take so much damage so early but was sad that guy choked so bad against emboar. srs how did he fuck that up so bad? He's at +2 and unless you're meh scarf then it would've been over. 

 

+2 252 Atk Virizion Close Combat vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Emboar: 223-264 (120.5 - 142.7%) -- guaranteed OHKO

 

unrelated: its amazing how poorly I played here and still somehow won.
