Strategy Using Persian

Although Persian was given high speed, its other stats are quite bad.
Attack is 70, so it won't be able to deal too much damage, although it learns a few physical moves.
Defense is 60, so its highly unlikely that it will take a hit, especially from a fighting move, like Brick break.
Special attack is 65, although its lower than its attack, it could possibly be used as a Raindancer, if you're feeling lucky.
With its special defense, its probably going to take more special attacks than physical attacks.
Being a Normal type, its weak to fighting moves, so watch out for those. The moveset, is well, all it can do when it comes to battling.
This moveset is simple to understand, use Attract to give yourself a greater chance of surviving each turn. Follow with Toxic and use Charm to lower your opponent's attack.
Protect is always useful to gain an extra turn, and allows Toxic to do more damage.
But, its got a good ability - Limber, which prevents Persian from being paralyzed. So, Persian is most likely going to go first in most battles.
As a battler, Persian isn't that good, but maybe you think differently.
