ASSIST-ance~!

Postby Lumine » Mon Aug 15, 2016 2:48 pm

So "Assist" is one of my favorite moves.
I love the roulette concept of not knowing what you're gonna get.
I tried using "Assist" users + Smeargles & others in a party but was wondering what moves you would all suggest.
Known Assist users:
Skitty , Glameow , Purrloin , Meowth , Drowzee , Sentret , Sneasel , Spinda , Chimchar, & Espurr .
Any ideas?

Love the title hahaha. I imagine that just having lots of strong moves of various types would suffice, maybe some support moves as well. I'd recommend the following pokemon:

Chimchar/Infernape (Mixed Glass cannon)
Purrloin/Liepard (Fast Disruptor)
Drowzee/Hypno (Bulky)
Sneasel/Weavile (Physical Sweep)
Glameow/Purugly (with Defiant it's a deceptively good physical sweeper)

and finally, Espurr/Meowstic as a support

Yeah I tried making Infernape a glass cannon so to speak using a smeargle.

The Infernape has [Fire Punch, Thunder Punch, Flame Wheel , & Assist.]
The Smeargle has [Sacred Fire, V-Create , Fusion Bolt, & Shadow Force.]
I tried to go with just offensive moves but he has like no support... He's been kicking some serious buns but two hit and he just burns out.

I'm curious if someone is holding a plate and uses Assist and pulls "Judgement" , does Judgement change type..

Yeah. But you'd need an Arceus or something for that one lol. Smeargle isn't great for offense though - I'd recommend something like [Spore/V-Create/Fusion Bolt/Boomburst]. Two-turn moves cannot be called by Assist. Infernape's moves could be better: How about [Flare Blitz/Close Combat/Assist/Earthquake]? Or make it a mixed attacker: [Flamethrower/Assist/Earthquake/Something else].

Two hit isn't too bad for Infernape. Meowstic and/or Smeargle should provide decent support though.

Dat Spore is a good call on Smeargle u could add some extra support with King Shield (?) ANother suggestion would be to run Meowstic with double screens + safe guard into assist (safe guard always been useful for other status spreader, but if you pull 2 safeguards with one assist it's pretty unlucky), or just double screens + assist + psychic.

I never need to use the Smeargle. I normally just use it for attack storage. But I suppose throwing spore on there wont hurt.
I have a Smeargle with Judgement so I'm not worried about that.
Are you sure about the 2 turn thing? I'm pretty sure I have used my Weavile with Assist -> Dive

You could test it yourself too :P 
Catch a tentacool, remove his moves, and teach him dive. Put him and another mon with Assist! Game done :D
