You go monty.
PLEA SE WATCH THIS BATTLE VIDEO THIS IS LITERALLY FINAL GAMBIT SHEDINJA JUST WATCH IT
2.5k notes later, everyone has been commenting on the fact that hail/sandstorm/burn/poison/mold breaker/multi hit moves would take it out
- it was wearing safety goggles. weather can’t affect it.
- ferrothorn intentionally paralyzed the shedinja so nobody could burn or poison it.
- mold breaker apparently does not affect sturdy.
- according to bulbapedia, “When a multi-strike move hits a Pokémon with Sturdy, Sturdy’s effect activates only for hits while the user has full HP, so hits after the first one can potentially KO the Sturdy Pokémon.” since it’s always at full hp, this would just keep triggering sturdy.
the only things that could take it down are roar/whirlwind (because switching it out obviously wouldn’t happen), trick/covet/magician/possibly knock off? + weather, using an ability swapping move on it again, or somehow removing its paralysis. basically, you’re fucked
