I was out of the loop for awhile, so I was very surprised to find out that Psystrike is actually amazing, easily dethroning Psychic and causing Mewtwo’s massive power to inflate to ludicrious levels.
That said, I’ve been playing this game since launch. I appreciated the generalist days, where Dragonite and Vaporeon took care of everything.
Psystrike M2 is obviously useless vs Darks, Psychics and Steels. And it probably comes up short vs particularly strong specialists (probably is nowhere close to MM Metagross vs Ice, for example)
But it seems that Psystrike M2 may very well yet put generalism back on the map. Gargantuan Attack stat, amazing moves, what’s not to like?
Seems like an obvious RC candidate, and an amazing long term investment for more than just as a Psychic specialist.
For PvP, it gives people a strong option for those who don’t have SB M2, though SB + Focus Blast seems to still be better overall.
