Overview

Togetic is pretty weak, so the timer is the real enemy in this duo. It would have been very difficult had it arrived even a week earlier, but its weakness to Steel gives trainers a chance to take their new Meteor Mash Metagross out for a spin. It wins over a half minute faster than any other counter with only a handful of deaths to boot.

Approach

Team composition

  • Level 30 Metagross beats all other level 40 counters in neutral weather

  • Togetic has low attack, so each player only needs at most 4 Metagross

  • Dazzling Gleam can be hard for frail, non-Metagross weather counters

Dodging strategy

  • Don’t dodge, unless you lack enough Metagross to complete the battle

Note: "Good" movesets are not necessarily viable at the level indicated.
