Anyway if you really want to screw with an opponent had a pokemon that can absorb attacks. Like if lapras is out and opponent uses thunder but the turn before you switch to a ground type then they use a fighting move but lucky for you switch to ghost.
I used to love using these strageties. And while it is true not every pokemon can hold their own they are still many UU that you can use and can pack a punch.
That's all I mean, just a little bit of spice. It gives more of a feeling of anime battling tome (without of course those moves they use that certain pokemon can't actually learn in the game)
