> see exarion’s explanation of tnl AI:
> you want a range of HP where solrock never kills with psychic, but does with SB. unfort -spdef always dies to luna psychic from any torrent. thus, being above max sol psy damage but within luna psy range, you can avoid dangerous setup moves (sunny day, light screen, calm mind) bc they will attack if they target you (if luna psy is a range and its “simulated roll” wouldn’t kill you, it will select LS or CM--my theory)
> DON’T switch castform to slot 2. this can trigger sunny day if solrock targets it. other slaves always die to any move, so they are safe.
