Those Nintendo bastards are getting tricky again... (Stadium 2)

Kikered vs. Skier
K's Arcanine used Extreme Speed!
Skier's Seel used Encore!
K's Arcanine used Extreme Speed!
Skier's Seel used Disable!
Arcanine's Extreme Speed was disabled!

Grrr... Encore/Disable seems to be quite effective...

Effective? Not really IMO.

You have to remember that you are using two moves to temporarily get rid of one of theirs. It would be nice to disable something like recover (something that they need), but in many situations you will encore an attack that may faint you before you are able to disable it, or disable an attack that isn't essential for your opponent. With only two moveslots after encore+disable, you only have two more moves left- compare this to their three moves. It can be useful in certain situations, but it's not really worth it.

Yeah, I noted the Encore/Disable combo at the exact same spot. It can be annpying, and is maybe the only interesting move combo that I saw for the first time in S2...But, it's not *that* great.

Encore is iffy, as you won't want to Encore many, many moves. Plus, it doesn't last all that long, and the duration is random...And Disable only works 55% of the time. All this make it a very problematic plan...

It's a tertiary, or at very best, secondary strategy...

Basically, Encore + Disable is a Sing that takes two moveslots and two turns to set up, and probably last for a shorter amount of time as well...

AFAIK, Encore lasts 2-5 turns and Disable lasts hella longer than it really should on G/S. Ah well.
