- This seems to work with Mudkips that have 12 Sp. Atk at Lv. 5 (so +Sp. Atk nature, 20-31 IV) when Mystic Water is equipped. Xatu and Lunatone are favorable ranges on the low end of IVs for 12 Sp. Atk at Lv. 5.
- Similar to the standard Torrent strat, you want Swampert and Castform as your lead Pokemon.
- Turn 1: X Speed, Powder Snow
- (Castform dies to Xatu's Psychic)
- (Send out your Rock Smash slave)
- (Rock Smash slave dies to Claydol's Earthquake; Swampert takes ~30% damage)
- (Send out Abra)
- Turn 2: X Special, Teleport
- (Abra dies to Xatu's Psychic)
- (Send out your Fly slave)
- (Fly slave evades Claydol's Earthquake; Swampert takes ~30% damage)
- Turn 3: Surf, Focus Energy/Growl
- (Claydol takes ~70% damage, so you avoid heal range; Xatu takes ~45% damage)
- (Fly slave dies to Xatu's Psychic)
- (Swampert takes ~8% damage from Claydol's Ancientpower or ~30% damage from Claydol's Psychic)
- (Swampert is now in Torrent)
- Turn 4: Surf
- (Claydol and Xatu die)
- Turn 5: Surf
- (Solrock and Lunatone die)
- If Claydol's Ancientpower puts you outside of Torrent, you'll likely still win, but it will take a bit more time. Otherwise, this fight carries the standard risks for T&L (dead to crit EQ, Ancientpower boost, Xatu targeting Swampert, Xatu using a move other than Psychic).
