  1. - Bed skip
  2.         > Helps PP management? Possibly skip getting or at least using a Leppa
  3.         > Helps PP management even more with HP Ice (because HP Ice uses more Surfs than non-HP)
  4.         > Helps Winona Torrent manip with HP Ice (because you OHKO Tropius and can take Torrent from Norman to Winona)
  5.         > Helps Fortree double battle (saves a turn + can save Castform)
  6.         > Can't die on Mt. Pyre double anyway
  7.         > Problem: Can die to Slugma (and probably get Ember more often, which is slower on average because of burn)
  8.         > Problem: Always die to Tropius unless HP Ice
  9.         > Problem: Getting Swampert might put you out of Torrent anyway (in which case bed is definitely slower)
  10.         > Problem: Have to revive slave before T&L, which makes bed skip a ~5s loss before Torrent effects
  11.        
  12. -----
  13.  
  14. - Hidden Power is 34 seconds (20 to get from woman (RRL), 14 to teach on Fly/SW menu)
  15. - HP Rock 70 saves ~6 turns, 1 PP item, $1000 and 0.5s in Mud Shot misses, decreases Tropius death chance, eliminates Perish Song risk and adds ~6 SE text boxes
  16. - HP Ice 70 saves ~6 turns, 1 PP item and $1650, eliminates Tropius death chance, eliminates Perish Song risk and adds ~3 SE text boxes
  17.  
  18. -----
  19.  
  20. - X Attack on turn 1 against Slaking with bad Attack (and again on turn 3 if first roll was bad). Use Strength+MS to kill
  21. - HP Rock and Ice calculations
  22. - Skip lake candy if no 285 exp? Because you still get all important levels except 34 for Shelly, 34 for Rival 3 and 36 for Mt. Pyre double (Tropius exp or single battles in Mossdeep Gym gives 43 for Lunatone), and you get 37 for Fortree Gym double. Can't candy revive on Tropius, though, and sometimes you need the Speed for Shelly/Rival 3
  23. - Move Potions down at some point midgame
  24. - Always 6 Energy Roots and 5-6 Heal Powders
  25.  
  26. -----
  27.

  40. DONE: does mud shot work to kill protect? or will it always succeed when used after mud shot?
  41.         > ANSWER: YES, it works
  42. - when to switch castform + remove MW? depends on taillow slot? want to reduce inputs in HM02 + TM34 menu
  43. - super potion on swablu? altaria risk? (so buy 1 more super, 2 fewer potions, 1 fewer oran?)
  44. - swap surf to slot 1 on tabitha mightyena (hideout)?
  45. - have swampert attack castform on mossdeep gym double if it has a decent chance to draw cm/psychic?

  48. - with bad Speed or really bad Special, 2 x spec for archie + glacia + champ? because rarely need 3

  50. - buy extra X Speed for Drake
  51. - 13/11/10 standard buy of 10/6/6/15/2? assuming you fought hiker
