All right, this session will feature the Cursola Team, as I like to alternate between double battling and single battling, though having these Wi-Fi events sometimes interrupts them. I haven't shown much of the Cursola Team recently, but to be fair, this team has not changed at all upon the introduction of Isle of Armor and then Crown Tundra, but that's because I believe it can hold upon its own without having to change.

There may be two consecutive sessions of single battles, however, because the upcoming Dragon King Cup, held the following weekend, will also be single battling.

Type: Single Battle
Opponent: ほけきよ (Hokekiyo) (556)
Stadium: Hammerlocke Stadium
Music: Leon
My Pokémon: Sigilyph, Heliolisk, Passimian
Opponent's Pokémon: チラチーノ (Cinccino), タルップル (Appletun), サンダー (Zapdos) (Galarian)


You can see that my opponent's team is pretty off the beaten path. There's Galarian Zapdos, and there's Urshifu, bu the other four--Sealeo, Dubwool, Cinccino, and Appletun--are Pokémon that don't come up very often. I'm not sure what ほけきよ has in mind for Sealeo (I'm guessing the Stallrein strategy but with an Eviolite), but I have a good idea for Dubwool, and we see Cinccino and Appletun in action.

Cinccino is a Pokémon I know quite well about what it does, despite never having trained one myself. Its Hidden Ability, Skill Link, allows Cinccino to strike the maximum number of times for multi-hit moves every time it's used. To that end, Minccino, and by extension Cinccino, learn a lot of multi-hit moves, like Tail Slap, Triple Axel, Seed Bomb, and in this case, Rock Blast. You can't underestimate this chinchilla-themed Pokémon due to its very high Speed of 115, allowing it to strike with these moves made very strong. Minccino, in particular, was the highlighted Pokémon for Black 2 and White 2 when demonstrating the Hidden Grottos scattered about Unova, as you were given a Skill Link Minccino with your first one on Route 5.

Appletun was the biggest surprise of this trio brought out to fight my Pokémon though. I knew that, even accounting for weaknesses, Appletun can withstand a lot if EV-trained right, and it seems that, thanks to the Weakness Policy, this one likely has all its stats in the defense ones, allowing Appletun to freely hit from both the physical and special end for decent damage. What caught me off guard was not quite as much that Weakness Policy as the fact that this Appletun hits both physically and specially. Certainly, when sending out Heliolisk, I did not expect an Earthquake!

Overall, ever since Team Preview, I figured the outcome of this match would depend on which Pokémon each player picks, because both teams have Pokémon with strong advantages but also strong disadvantages. Heliolisk, in particular, is the only Pokémon on this team able to go toe-to-toe with Zapdos, which is ultimately why I selected her. Sigilyph too, to a lesser extent, but not after a Max Airstream.

I don't know if I've pointed this out yet, but if you think the Galarian versions of the Legendary Birds have non-indicative names, know that they're even MORE so in Japanese! Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres are known as, respectively, フリーザー, サンダー, and ファイヤー, or "Freezer," "Thunder," and "Fire." That's likely why it was deemed necessary to give them signature moves that tie in to their original types (Freezing Glare, Thunderous Kick, and Fiery Wrath). Then again, Sandshrew and Sandslash's Japanese names are literally just "Sand" and "Sandpan," and are completely removed from sand.
