Welp, my winning streak in the Pokemon Omega Ruby Battle Resort has officially met its end…for now anyway. In the last update, I had just reached battle number 60. A few days later, I reached battle 68 which ended up being the end of the road for me. My demise was all thanks to this thing:
Yep! Latias! What can I really say about Latias other than it’s a total pain in the a**! When you think about it, Latias has a pretty defensive typing, psychic/dragon. Whereas most other dragons would simply cave with 1 Ice Beam, it takes at least 2 to make Latias faint, sometimes even 3; this is of course assuming that it doesn’t use Recover.
My situation with Latias was quite the predicament. Latias, and another Pokemon in particular that never seems to actually faint, managed to take out 3/4s of my team with minimal difficulty. Who was the other Pokemon? It was Cresslia!
Cresselia, like Latias, was incredibly bulky. I managed to hit it with 1 Shadow Ball from my Mega Gardevoir before she fainted. That Shadow Ball only took about 1/4 of its life. If this were any other physic type, it’d either had fainted at that point, or be hanging on by a thread.
In the end, it all came down to my Gengar vs Latias. I had the slight advantage of my Gengar being faster than Latias, but was also at a major disadvantage because A: Latias was weak to nothing that Gengar had in its arsenal, and B: Latias had managed to stack up 2 Calm Minds. Latias murdered my Gengar with a single Mist Ball. It also helped that Gengar has literally no defense against ANY psychic move…
So that’s my story. I had a great little run, and i’m hoping to do it again. I just started the Super Multi-Battles and am currently at battle 8. These are admittedly a bit more difficult because I don’t have access to my entire arsenal…any tips/suggestions?
