Default Rest. My most hated move now.

I'm sorry if this is in the wrong place, I just needed to rant about the move Rest. If this is in the wrong place, could a mod move it to where it belongs? Thanks. Anyways, after playing LeafGreen, I am very pissed at the move Rest. I was in Victory Road and I came across a trainer with a Dewgong. Of course, my team isn't the best against Water/Ice types (Blastoise, Nidoqueen, Dugtrio, Golbat, Pidgeot, Flareon) so I choose to use Blastoise. After using Bite a few times to bring Dewgong down to low health, it used Rest. This didn't bother me at first, but after lowering its health some more, it immediately used Rest again. It kept repeating this until I ran out of Bite PP. So now I try Surf, Blizzard, and Hydro Cannon, but they all failed as well. So returning Blastoise, I decide to use Nidoqueen's Earthquake to defeat Dewgong. This also failed considering it decided to pull a Sheer Cold on me and it worked. Next I try Dugtrio, using Magnitude. After a few more Rest rounds, I finally defeat Dewgong with some Magnitudes 9 and 10. Does anyone think this was just as unfair as I do (I mean, I could see a human player doing that, but an AI??? That's like...hacking or something. They're not allowed to be smart!)

And also, yes. I figured my team sucks. They always do. I always use my favorite Pokemon over powerful Pokemon. That explains the horrible team with horrible movesets.

Also, the trainer was Cooltrainer Alexa of Victory Road.

Uh, you wasted 2 pokemon on it. Big deal.
lrn2counterRestDewgong? If you know your team sucks and can't handle this, I don't understand why you feel the need to post this.

put taunt on one of your pokes. problem solved. no more resting.

Rest + sleep talk will,

1. pp stall tough opponents
2. allow your pokemon to absorb status (psn, paralysis, burn, etc.)
3. you can use a move without using pp with rest talk, extending the amount of times you can use an attack

in case you were wondering...

That would be an interesting mode to play considering the normal gameplay is way to easy.

And some AIs are quite intelligent sometimes.
