Glacia: 5* 3/5 0/20, Defense Crush 2, https://pokemon-masters-stuff.github.io/?e=0&grid=AAECAwQFBhMWFxgmKSssLQ==&o=750&p=Glalie&s=5Summer Steven: 5* 1/5 0/20, Critical Strike 2, https://pokemon-masters-stuff.github.io/?e=19&grid=AAECAwQFBgkKERITFRYlJyg=&o=522&p=Sandslash&s=1Rosanta: 5* 1/5 0/20, Defense Crush 2, No gridType Skills: Glacia (Ice Support Lv.4), Summer Steven (Ice Strike Lv.4)Taking the kiddies gloves off to show a non meme team structure. 3/5 Glacia is now an incredible tool for Hail teams because anything with Healing Hail automatically benefits from partnering with Summer Steven. Ice Shell gives her a massive 50% boost to her Defense and, under Hail, she can be the tank she always wanted to be. First Aid 4 mitigates any overwhelming damage (as the Chandelure kindly demonstrated) and Team Toughen Up augments the team’s Defense to filter physical sync damage and improve Ice Shell without depending on Fortuitous 4 RNG.Something important about my Hail team is that I have 1/5 Summer Steven. While a monster in his own right, he doesn’t gain access to dual MGRs until 2/5, and No Quarter is at 3/5, so I’m kinda stuck using a slow Icicle Crash. This often comes with gauge issues. 3/5 Summer Steven can be ran with Pryce for additional offense because he’s just that efficient at generating gauge but 1/5 has annoying limits.The way I usually patch 1/5 Summer Steven is through Caitlin because she has Snow Shelter and generates gauge just by existing (example here: https://youtu.be/FXUNVKoGrEY). Glacia can now fill in the tank slot so there’s room for Speed support. Rosanta is a natural pick because she has Snow Shelter and Healing Hail 1 as innate passives and is meant to support physical strikers in these structures.One key benefit of running Glacia + Summer Steven are Type Skills. Glacia has atrocious stats so +60 HP is very much welcome to increase her regeneration rate.Glacia takes care of the party’s healing needs by stacking regeneration on top of all the Healing Hails so we end the battle at near full HP. Despite receiving a devastating blow at the start of the battle it barely meant anything thanks to First Aid 4 and constant regeneration patching Glalie’s HP. After some denials she is right back at max health.It feels weird using a proper striker. It’s like “oh I can deal damage without using dumb shit like SS5 Roxanne.” As a side note Glacia CANNOT see the Gigalith because it hits Glalie for super effective damage.I stream Pokémon Masters sometimes: https://www.twitch.tv/zinfogel
