Sure Fire 1 HP Attack

Post by Sadri »

All you need is a pokemon with the False Swipe attack. The Zangoose that you get from Zook has it by default. A pokemon with this move can almost always leave any opposing pokemon of lower level with 1 hit point, making it an easy target for pokeballs.

Not to be rude, but I'm sure EVERYONE knows this already. No offense, but don't make these posts that aren't worth anything...
Well, Timmy, aren't you being a cotton-headed ninny muggins.

And dont post complaints in old topics... this was originally posted in June

And for the record, not everybody would know this. New players or those who havent encountered the move may not know this fact.

It's true that False Swipe CAN leave a pokémon with 1 HP (only if it does enough where a different move of the same damage would faint the opponent) But if a Shadow pokémon was to be hurt someother way like Sandstorm, Recoil, etc it will still faint so lowest possible HP isn't always the best way to go.
