Strategy Using Shedinja

Ah, the little pokemon that could never gai more hp, it is such a sad sorrowful tale. But hey, I am not one for sad sorrowful tale, I am here to teach you how to turn the worst, most weak pokemon... into deadly fainting machines of power!

This bug type is special here, because of its inate ability of "Wonder Guard." If it isn't super effective, it isn't getting through. So this alone limits what people can do to this guy, so that helps balance out its horrible... well, its 1 hp, because horrible just does not explain how pitiful one hp is. Shedinja's best stat by far is its pretty good attack, and with the personality that I chose it raises it up above 300 if you have good EVs. I'll give you that it doesn't learn the best of physical attacks, but you have to make do. Shadow Ball is great for all of those damned calm minding psychics. Don't you just get sick of them laughing at you as they calm mind, slowly... simply mocking you, and then they swep you and yo are left to cry! Not any more! This pokemon is a pyschic killing machine folks. Or if you want to try to go for a boost of stats, mostly attack and speed should interest you, silver wind would of course be your best option. Aerial Ace... well, I'll be hoenst and say it is a basic filler move. But it is not without purpose. It is good for catching pokemon unaware, and if you predict well enough you may just be able to kill a crunching Sceptile on the switch in trying to eat poor little Shedinja's soul. I know it is a little odd that I don't have an item, but that goes along with the last move, thief. Although you may think that thief is basically not a big deal, it can actually debalance a team enough to take the advantage in an otherwise even match up. You'd be surprised how fast regice will be missing those leftovers, or how Metagross wants his choice band.
Oh, and you have to be wary of spikes, at all times. If you do not have a rapid spinner on your team do not use Shedinja, spikes are too common and you will get burned, just some friendly advice"

Strategy Against Shedinja

Spikes. NEXT! Oh, you want more than that? Oh fine, have it your way. There is one pokemon that is Shedinja's mortal fear, and its name is Skarmory. For a couple of reasons, maybe even three, perish the thought! Firstly Skarmory laughs at most phsyical attackers, which Shedinja just happens to be, uh oh. Secondly, Skarmory quite a bit of the time has drill peck which is super effective against it, bypassing wonder guard, and KOing it. Now, the third, and most deadly of them all. Is Spikes, its an instant KO on the switch in. Out of those three spikes is easily the most harmful and most common, so if you want to kill this bug, use spikes and you shouldn't have much of a problem. Alternatively, use any Pokémon that has super effective attacks, such as Fire, Flying, or Dark
