haven't tested it out on GSbot yet, but here it is:

Alakazam (Miracleberry)
-Psychic
-Recover
-Encore
-Seismic Toss


the strategy is to encore something that powers up like skarmory or cloyster that use curse/spikes, and seismic toss them...

it's supposed to be an annoyance type pokemon...so that your opponent can't have curselax in there for a long time with the seismic tossing going on while it curses up...

anyone have any comments/suggestions before i test it out?

Good in theory. But what if the opponent sends out a Uriugaa, or something of the like? I have the ultimate Alakazam set here. Crap accuracy, but when it hits, it works.

Alakazam@Miracleberry
Encore
Disable
Psychic
Recover

If that hits, the opponent switches. If the opponent is trapped and that hits, then it's good.

If spikes is down, It's also good.

"Seismic toss" is a RBY item and "encore" is a move that must me bred on alakazam. I don't think this m-set is possible
EDIT: fix typo

That's right, you can't have both. But you can put an Element Punch in place of Toss or something else. Anyway, this strategy kind of had something to it but it's only legal in mIRC unless you put something else instead of Toss. Dark_Herakurosu's strategy would be absolutely delicious when paired with Ariados or Umbreon (To BP Spider Web or Mean Look).

Just because it's possible doesn't mean it's legal.
