Hey there, I’m new here and recently I started playing this game more, mostly due to finding other people to play it with, since alone it was kinda boring to me after a few days.
So, this season of the GBL I actually did some research and ended up “fixing” two or three good IV mons to use in the GBL and ended up settling for the following team: Altaria, Probopass and Beedrill. I usually lead with Altaria.
I tried other pokemon instead of Beedrill but always ended up having trouble with Azumarill and/or Steel-types, so I took a shiny Beedrill from the CD and just kinda went with it. I reached Rank 7 yesterday but now things are getting way harder due to a very specific pokemon that is on almost every team I’m facing. Galarian Stunfisk.
I just have no way of hitting it for big damage without completely sacrificing either Altaria or Probopass to lower its HP and then using Beedrill and hopefully, with good shield baiting and a bit of luck, finally drop it. This strategy has a major flaw, however, and its that Beedrill itself is weak to Rock Slide, which every G-Stunfisk ever packs and completely decimates my team.
Outside of this matchup and outside of when people are packing Azumarill and a second Fairy-type just because, I think the team holds itself together decently. Although my matchup against Azu should improve when I finally teach Thunderbolt to my Probopass, as I only have Rock Throw and Magnet Bomb on it for now, so maybe that second very specific scenario will be covered.
For the record, my Altaria has Dragon Breath and then Sky Attack and Dragon Pulse, and my Beedrill has Poison Jab and then Drill Run and X-Scissor.
If anyone has some advice, tips, criticism of my team or comments about it, I’d love to read it, I want to improve in this game. Sorry for the wall of text and thanks for reading it xx
