Depends on what is meant by Magic decoder ring and so on.
The fact that these are NPCs, and they have certain patterns, that's the code. The decode is determining what moves you want to be using to counter them, which actually does dictate what sequence you make your moves.
It's a matter of finding (or making) a strategy that works for you. However, since these are "top end" and there's some luck factor involved, you sometimes need to have a backup team/strat for any particular fight.
there many different strategies for each fight and for many of those a large number of options for pets you can use for that strategy.
Personally, I stopped paying attention once I had my teams set, after which it was just a matter of chugging away til I got all the pets.
However, I've gotta question your use of "many" for the tourney fights.
I almost wish that during the beta instead of decreasing it from 30 to 15 that they would have increased it to 45 or 60 which might have set a more realistic expectation on what your collection needed to look like to be successful.
I agree here, they should have made the minimum 25 pets (3 per fight), even if you didn't necessarily need to use all 25.
In any case, not to dis Flopsyhunt, but based on the posts in my thread, he's looking for a clear path through this. Breeds adds a level of complexity (and possible failure) that I managed to ignore until he was having trouble with some of the things I'd suggested, which made me understand that breeds is important. Which may also be some of the trouble he's having with other posted strats, and why he's frustrated when the response is "well, it works for me" from several different directions.
