View Full Version : Air Lance!

The anime really sets itself apart from the games because... well... all the attacks are animated. Yeah that's a no brainer but that also brings a lot of ideas to the table on how attacks are utilized. This brings strategy too.

I liked the strategy with Blaine's Magmar when it blocked Pikachu's Thunderbolt with an air lance. That was when it covered its arm in fire and stopped any type of electricity to conduct.

So from the anime, what is your favorite battle strategy used?

The anime is pretty well known for it's whacky tactics, which for most of the time make no sense.

I quite liked Tucker's fusion of fire and water tactic, which May ended up using on two occasions, I suppose I just like the electrical effect.

I wasn't impressed with Counter Shield but I still found it very effective to say the least. Paul eventually gives it a go too. xD;

I've also got to mention thunder armour. Just 'cause.

I will never forget Bugsy's Scyther using Swords Dance to deflect Cyndaquil's Flamethower. THAT IS GENUIS! Or how Whittney's Miltank couldn't get hurt when it was using Rollout.
