Fear the Deer
If you're having that problem, might I suggest you swap your main team out for your reserves while grinding new team members? I do that and I don't have to worry about my main team being overlevelled (especially because I play with level limits, which makes the game SO much more challenging IMO) and as a plus I have less grinding later.Honestly, Shield's EXP share makes it very hard to train up new team members without the entire team getting OP, just a minor gripe.
So, I'm doing a Sword Wedlocke. My initial pairs?
Notice the glaring weakness this team has?
I noticed after beating Nessa that Vanillite and Snover were falling behind because, at the time, I had Twackey, Corvisquire, Dottler, and Roserade that were all more useful. So I decided to use those two for a while.
First trainer battle after making that decision? A fucking Carkol.
RIP Vanillite and Snover. To their credit, they did take down most of its HP but I was still just like "Really? What are the chances?"
