    Hi SpinyShell; do you mind if you change your order for this round in the Torkoal raid to Lick, please? Paralyzing the Raid Boss might be our only chance to get Torkoal to use a shockwave, which would reset stats and status conditions.

    Okay, I asked King Ghidorah and Connor over Discord for whether they thought Lick was a good idea, and they're fine with it. I agree with them, so if you want, you can change your order to Lick. To be fair, Lick does have a risk in just being kinda useless if the paralysis does not activate and if the Raid Boss doesn't target you with Body Press (if Body Press is even used), but I still feel like Lick would be your best option here.

    I feel that the extent to which Torkoal's Defense is boosted does not turn away Psybeam as an option by itself. In raids, stat boosts are less...effective...than in the games. A stat boost adds 0.1 to the multiplier of the attack's damage; the stat +1 would multiply the damage by 1.1, +2 would multiply the damage by 1.2, e.t.c., but that's not completely obvious just by looking at the raid updates, so I can understand why Psybeam may not look so appealing. With Torkoal's +5 Defense, Body Press would be just as powerful as if it were STAB with no Defense boosts.

    That said, I do think Lick is a completely viable alternative to Ancient Power in this situation. Using the attack would turn your Kecleon into a Ghost-type, making you immune to Fighting if I'm not mistaken, and the paralysis chance is a nice boon despite the low power. I would say Lick is indeed a good choice here, but I'll need to ask the others.

    Hi, I realized that with the increase of the Raid Boss's Defense in the Torkoal raid, we might be in danger from a Body Press, which uses the user's Defense stat to calculate damage instead of the user's Attack. Since Body Press is a Fighting-type move, do you think it would be a good idea to have your Kecleon use Psybeam instead of Ancient Power, so you can resist a potential Body Press? Psybeam is much weaker than Ancient Power if used on Torkoal, but the Psychic type might help you to take Body Press better if it is used. If you don't think using Psybeam is a good idea, would Bind be an okay option as well, if you want to avoid super effective Max Quake damage and put some residual damage on the boss? I was told through Discord that I should use Whirlpool, and binding moves do not stack, so never mind this part.

    So that you're aware, Pearl's Perap used Max Overgrowth in the Mudsdale Raid to reinstate the Grassy Terrain after you ordered your Giga Drain. You're not currently in any danger of fainting through HP loss, though, so feel free to do as you see fit.

    Hi SpinyShell; in the Torkoal raid, we're thinking that there's a good chance that the Raid Boss has the Ability White Smoke, which prevents stat drops. If that is the case, then your Screech will not have any effect. If you used Screech so that Protean turns your Kecleon Normal-type, do you think you could use another move like Feint Attack or Psybeam that also lets you avoid a weakness to moves that Torkoal might use? That way, your move isn't wasted if Torkoal has White Smoke. We can still find out Torkoal's Ability depending on if its Defense and Sp. Def are dropped after shields are broken.

    Here's a little heads up for the Mudsdale Raid: I'm planning on opening up the battle with Grassy Terrain, so it'd probably be for the best if you waited for that in order to claim that juicy 30% increase to you Grass attacks~

    Hey, just filling you in- we're thinking the best course of action this round in the Golett raid is for me, Lit, and KG to handle the rest of Golett's shields, leaving you free to Dynamax and smack it with Max Overgrowth, not only for the big damage, but also to set up Grassy Terrain just in time for the Pumpkin Bomb to go off.

    Speaking of Pumpkin Bomb, that makes for Max Overgrowth with 130 BP- same as Giga Drain, but since everyone has an Attack boost from Gonzap's Howl, the physical option would be the better bet here, I think.

    Hi SpinyShell, I saw your order in the Carbink raid and would like to ask that you hold off on attacking at the moment. If Raves attacks next, his attack will do more damage and likely push the Raid Boss to shields (75% is the first shield threshold) if the Boss isn't already in shields, so do you think you could wait until Raves orders to attack? (The plan I suggested on Discord is subject to change, so I'll let you know if that happens.)

    Also, nice work on the humpy sprites. There was one for Pumpkasaur made back in 2016 but I think yours looks better
