Look. I know it's not very useful. I know base Alakazam is better.
But I really like it and I wanna run it on my team. What's the best and optimal build for this guy?
this is my favorite set to fuck with shitters
it could be more optimized but i can't be bothered
Alakazam @ Alakazite
Ability: Magic Guard
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
- Dazzling Gleam
- Calm Mind
also trace is a godsend for fucking with people. water absorb mon on the other team? hey, thanks for the free 25% health since they were spamming scald and i brought in mega-spoon here
no, this is better than base zam now thanks to speed creep and trace shenanigans.
as far as partners go, its pretty much the same story here as any other frail sweeper. wear down anything it can't immediately KO since it has non-existent bulk and hates all status. fighting and bulky fairy types as well as anything good for chip damage function very well.
>tfw GF will never add the 10 BST they fucking forgot
Play doubles. Use with Slaking. On turn 1, have Alakazam use Skill Swap to give Slaking Magic Guard. On turn 2, Mega-Evolve Alakazam. He gets trace and traces something the opponent has. Now you have a Slaking without any drawbacks and a mega-Alakazam.
