Bet 12281 Coins on BasedJarrod (12281 -> 0)
Paid attention to Castform's Special Attack near the end of the solo challenge. Noticed similar Special Attack values here. Scrutinized this checkpoint's weigh-ins for it. Finally happened. Eclipsed Nimbus's 167 Special Attack at level 88 with Superbia and Roo . Wins a straight slugfest still, at least.
@Deva most likely not, I would say. If Castform is faster it still needs a turn to set up a weather and by then it’ll already have taken a bunch of damage. Or if Castform is slower then you have to hope you paralyze/freeze me if I don’t OHKO Castform
@BasedJarrod 236 hitpoints, 148 Special Defense, and 183 Speed. Deals 57.6-68.6% with a super-effective Choice Specs Focus Blast from Mewtwo. Follows up with a 164.5-194.1% Sun Weather Ball or 109-129.6% Hail Weather Ball. Recalls a similar damage range with Hail Weather Ball versus Roo.
