Would this team work?

Post by Saasan » May 29th, 2013, 4:13 pm

I've been toying around with the idea of an uncanny luck team, and was wondering if doing a mangle --> swap & uncanny luck --> swap & cyclone/slicing wind was a good strategy. I know lots of people use humanoids, and my last pet with this strat would be Sprite Darter, so I don't know if this is a good idea or not. :? I'm sure I could rustle up a moth in place of the Sprite Darter need be. Also, I don't know who to put in with mangle. Any thoughts?

I am not a fan of any strategy that involves too much offensive swapping. I prefer to only swap defensively. On paper, an offensive swap strategy sounds viable, but unless you manage to swap in a pet that has a hard counter, they are just going to sit there and assault you while you try and set up. It also doesn't take into account their strategy, which will mostly likely throw your game off as well.

That is fair. I personally hate swapping pets and usually run the poor things into the ground before calling out the next. I'd read lots of strategies involving swapping (mostly with weather conditions) and thought perhaps I'd give it a try, largely because Uncanny Luck is AWESOME and Mr Wiggles is somewhat limited.

I remember doob doing a team where he was swapping left and right and it was annoying as all hell. I think he may have called it his annoying team, or something like that. Totally whipped my butt. It was so annoying, I had to laugh.
