I can't seem to get past Bennett. Usually his Masquerain ends up being my downfall. The Pokemon I have that are at a level that is somewhat compatible with the gym (given a bit of training, of course) are listed in my signature. Nicknames are also listed in the siggy. If you want to know abilities, moves, stats, etc, ask and ill screenshot. My strategy so far is to use Rett (Golem)'s Bulldoze first turn to destroy the mirrors, so any ideas should preferably stem from that. Rett usually ends up sacrificing with Self-Destruct in the rare case that it survives, anyway. After that, I switch into Splin (Spinda) for another sacrifice, this time simply so that Bennett will switch into Venomoth rather than Masquerain. If Splin survives, I will then Teeter Dance the Venomoth and switch into Rays (Rapidash), who takes out Venomoth with 2-3 Bounces. Then comes Masquerain. Rays? Hydro Pump, dead. Renee (Linoone)? Signal Beam, dead. Higgledy (Musharna)? Signal Beam, dead. Lesby (Meowstic-M)? Signal Beam, dead. I've also tried revenge-killing Venomoth using Fred (Pyukumuku)'s Innards Out and Pain Split, but no dice as of yet. Any suggestions?
Anyone got any tips?
I think I've almost perfected my strategy against Doctor Geezer. It's the oddest combo: Destiny Bond Carvahna, super duper Fast so it gets to use DB before Musharna uses Dazzling Gleam, so Musharna is down for the count. Then I switch into Liepard, who uses Shadow Claw until Rotom is down as well. Next up comes Drampa, at which point I use Liepard's Play Rough. She usually faints at this point, so I switch into Meganium, who is holding a Black Belt, so that he can Rock Smash through the remainder of Drampa's HP. Next comes Alolan Raichu; I switch into Rapidash for High Horsepower, which, when boosted by a Ground Gem, OHKOs the Raichu. The problem, then, is the remaining two Pokemon. When I get lucky with the RNG, Charizard can do a bit of damage to Hypno by way of Crunch before it defeats me. Then, I switch into Linoone so I can use Shadow Claw, but, for some reason, Hypno seems to quickly overtake Linoone. Therefore, I switch into my only remaining Pokemon, Rapidash. Rapidash takes way more damage from Hypno than he should by my calculations? But, then again, I've never been that good with damage calc. Anyway, Electivire then finishes off the weakened Rapidash with Thunder Punch.
Once again, any tips?

Yeah arcanine sounds hella useful. Extremespeed is useful too in case you need to finish off something like raichu who might outspeed you otherwise. Just make sure his health is low enough haha. Hmm maybe replace linoone with arcanine, i think he might fair a bit better.
Hmm...dragon dance on charizard? I feel with 2 or 3 boosts(provided you can pull them off) he might be able to one-shot raichu/musharna/hypno, depending on his nature/IVs, maybe calculate it to see how much it'd deal. Drampa should take some damage from a similarly boosted wing attack, it'll probably two-shot him, thing is drampa can hit kinda hard so I don't know if Grill will be able to last that long.
sucker punch is a priority move, but I don't think liepard can KO with it alone even on SE hits. It's good for finishing off wounded psychics though I guess, maybe even Evire if he's hurt enough. I used skuntank for that very purpose but mine had a +nature attack.
Thanks so much! I kept track of the battle below:

I imagine that my Pokemon in reborn have personalities. I do it with all Pokemon games, really.
Sligma the Magcargo has gotta be the most noble of the bunch. SPOILERS AHEADSpoiler
Sliggy just muscled through three of Doctor Geezer's pokemon. We didn't win this time, but it's nice knows that she is willing to go through all that for the kids' sake.
Me, having defeated all of Serra's Pokemon except her Froslass, down to a single Arcanine with paralysis and 3HP: Okay, Gilly, use ExtremeSpeed!
Me, milliseconds after hitting the Enter key: NONONOWAITITSAGHOSTTYPEAHHHHHHH
Thanks for the tips, everybody! I trained up my Arcanine, evolved my Charmeleon, and did like 2 minutes worth of training with Golem, then went in with Golem, Magcargo, Charizard, Rapidash, Arcanine, and Linoone. I ended up using 2 Cotton Candies, 6 Full Restores, and a Super Potion, and I made it out with one Pokemon left standing, with 2HP Thanks again y'all!
okay but like bread is legit amazing in taste and texture and GOSH I LOVE BREAD SO MUCH LET'S GET THIS BREAAAAAAAAD
Yeah, I'm desperate. I was reviewing Shelly's team and noticed that all except one of her Pokemon are female. This led me to the conclusion that using Attract (via the tm given at the onyx arcade or by leveling up a male spritzee from the flower shop puzzle to level 29, among other methods) might be a solution to my current problem. Thoughts? My current team's moveset can be found here: https://imgur.com/a/07hPosO The abilities are: Meowstic: Keen Eye Farfetch'd: Keen Eye Shiinotic: Rain Dish Ponyta: Run Away Dustox: Compound Eyes Slugma: Magma Armor But I also have these in storage that have been leveled as part of various attempts to beat Shelly: https://imgur.com/a/QhssUU3 Abilities: Growlithe: Justified Trubbish: Aftermath Linoone: Pickup Meganium: Overgrow
This starts strong until Anorith gets on the field. I decided to pair Farfetch'd's Acrobatics with Meowstic's Fake Out on the first turn to not only prevent it from Rain Dancing, but also do a whole lot of damage on the first turn. However, eventually, this starts to weaken; Masquerain follows up with an Icy Wind, which hits Farfetch'd somewhat hard, or a Struggle Bug, which nearly decimates Meowstic. On the same turn as this Icy Wind or Struggle Bug, Shelly uses a Hyper Potion. I would then use Meowstic's Attract in an attempt to immobilize Illumise so it can't use Rain Dance, but usually this is the turn when Meowstic is taken out by an attack from Masquerain. Acrobatics gets rid of one of the bugs, and out comes Anorith. Anorith is a mega sweeper. Anorith starts out with its Telluric Seed, so I can't Attract, Fake Out, etc. first turn. Rock Slide decimates Slugma, Growlithe, Farfetch'd, and Dustox, and whichever bug remains will usually clean up the rest. Another strategy I've come up with involves a Poochyena (it's shiny!) that I found a while back. I'm pretty sure I can use my Embargo TM on Poochyena, train it up, and then I wouldn't have to worry about Shelly's Hyper Potions, Anorith's Telluric Seeds, Illumise's Damp Rock, etc. Thoughts?
