While he did list the best options, like he said, they're all EXTREMELY gimmicky. Like, if your Pokemon doesn't have enough coverage to hit an opponent without a Ring Target, then you shouldn't use it. Moreover, Pickpocket is a TERRIBLE strategy (and you'd really be baiting nobody since nobody uses it), and the whole Rough Skin thing is just.... well... dumb. There are better items to use (I.E. Rocky Helmet), and the event that someone hits you with a move you're normally immune to is incredibly unlikely unless you're playing a 3 year old. 

My theory (that apparently no one on the internet has thought of), is hitting your partner Pokemon in a Double Battle with a move they'd be immune to normally. Like, say you had a Ghost-type Pokemon on the field, and you wanted to Swagger it with your other Pokemon and get an Attack Boost. Ring Target and you can do that. Its still dumb, and there are better options, but its the most viable thing I can come up with.

Thank you for the input, though. I appreciate it! Rep given.

 We should battle Pokemon some time!


@RetroTyphlosion This may be another alternative — and indeed a better one, since it gives you more control of the situation. But, as you said, it is still a totally a gimmick play (except maybe in some specific case that I can't think of?).

Yeah, we should definitevely battle some time! (I love Typhlosion too, although, as a hardcore Fire-type enthusiast, I am little suspicious in saying that!) Big Grin
