Introducing "Glass Cannon Squad"


#1

Introducing my “Glass Cannon Squad” - for saving time gym battling, and for saving myself from gym boredom. :sleeping:
They are truly Glass Cannons - hits hard, but has so little health. :smile_cat:

The idea for a glass-cannon squad is to ram through the defender, and only dodge charge move, if you really have to. :triumph: Of course, you’ve gotta be potion- and revive-rich. :grin:


For anything weak to water:

  • 2634CP Kingler, Bubble + Water Pulse

For your fav Gyarados:

  • 2669CP Jolteon, Thunder Shock + Thunderbolt

For whipping Vaporeons:

  • 2229CP Victreebel, Razor Leaf + Leaf Blade

For true suicide against Espeons and Alakazams (each super effective against the other!):

  • 2566CP Gangar, Shadow Claw + Shadow Ball

For tree-trimming (truly amazing speed):

  • 2701CP Pinsir, Fury Cutter + X-Scissor

For your fav Dragonites:

  • 2455CP Jynx, Frost Breath + Avalanche

For when you just wanna watch flames on the screen:

  • 2813CP Flareon, Fire Spin + Overheat

For when you just wanna a cool cat that shreds almost everything (sorry alakazam…):

  • 2958CP Espeon, Confusion + Future Sight

Do you have a “glass cannon squad?” What’s it look like?

Awesome! An interesting idea to have a burn squad, never thought that it could be a viable strategy.


#3

That would be a great team strategy to use when doing a gym raid with 10+ people battling a gym. High DPS / low HP mons that will be more resource efficient to revive & will also take less damage as there are so many battling at the same time. Nice one.
I shall suggest these on an upcoming raid to see how it impacts the take down time.

now if the raid were to come soon omg - HYPEEEE


#5

You forgot the #1 glass cannon Alakazam… Kind of…


#6

Mystic beat me to it. Cannot have a glass cannon squad without Mr. Deadshot himself, psycho-cut Alakazam.


#7

(I didn’t include Alakazam in my Glass Cannon Squad because Ima annoyed at Niantic for nerfing my Alakazam - good IV, Psycho Cut + Psychic, powered up to 7000 stardust. Now a junk mon collecting dust in the storage… Also, 4 evolves since rebalance, no Future Sight…)

Besides Alakazam, which other glass cannon mon do you like to use in battle?


#8

Alakazam vs Gengar is one of the fastest battles you will have…those two just savage each other in my experience


#9

I tried picking up a squad to attack against each type based on what I have. This is not a glass cannon squad … but still has lot of variety in it …
