Hey folks I was wondering about a very special doubles battle strategy, including a ghost / psychic composition... The idea is to utilize the move trump card.

What it requires:
An Espeon evolved at lvl 57 (due to it's high special attack) that is EV trained...
Some ghost pokemon with the move spite and some durability (perhaps a Drifblim? Not sure it can be teached spite though)

Next you would use a single pp up on trump card (this is due to spite removing 4 pp)

Now for battle :

1. Get Espeon to use trump card as the very first move of the entire battle

2. Use spite on Espeon with your ghost pokemon

3. Wait for a particularly strong pokemon in the opponents pool

4. Use trump card on this pokemon and (maybe?) OHKO it.
Another thing to note here is that there should be other moves that are useful on both pokemon while waiting for the burst attack

What do you think of my thoughts?

Hey there, you've got an interesting strategy there! Unfortunately, competitive battling threads like these don't belong in 4th Gen but here (click me!)!

Coudn't you just die?
