didnt realize ally switch has priority derp
Moar useful than I thought, but still rarely useful. Sure, Hydreigon wins the exchange with Latios. What about their second Poke? What if it's MORE threatening than Latios? What if it's faster than Gallade and uses Fake Out? At best, you probably just lost Gallade/both it and Hydreigon are quite weakened, while their Latios is KO'd. Evening things out in doubles doesn't get you wins; an eye for an eye is what you should strive for at worse.
If that was the best use of Ally Switch evar, I'd definitely call the move a gimmick.
