Hilbert: 5* 5/5 0/20, Vigilance, 4* 5/5 0/20, Defense Crush 2, No gridPrimeape: 4* 1/5 0/20, Defense Crush 2, Tech Egg (Affinity 3/3 0/20)Remember, your Striker is not as important as the Support its given.There are plenty of powerful Fighting-type Strikers but none can properly nuke. Discounting Gladion and Cakewalk Wally (lol), Brawly is the only Fighting-type with a good sync multiplier. Brawly’s sync is boosted the more you debuff the target’s Defense. Very abusive considering how benefitial Defense drops are to your offense already.As a 3* gacha Brawly is an easy sync pair to forget about but he has interesting perks. Brick Break is mildly handy for Master Mode, and Potion is great to support a tank. Brawly has a massive HP stat so he cushions damage without too many issues. Most importantly, Brawly can debuff Defense with Rock Smash (50% chance). Tack Defense Crush 2 as a Lucky Skill and Brawly bruises enemies very well. An important distinction between Brawly and other Defense debuffers is that Brawly damages the target while debuffing. The price of course is far less efficient debuffs (random chance, single target and single drops), but his chip damage can put enemies into killing range.I tried using Brawly back on Fighting-weak Karen. It was, by all means, a miserable experience. My best shot was using SS Blue to cheese the stage, and even then Brawly had to deal with Karen’s Evasion buffs and TRIPLE X Defense All nerfing his sync.Comparatively speaking Striker Brawly is much easier to pull off against Iris. The stage is mildly problematic for physical Strikers because of Terrify 2 and Breaking Swipe, but Hilbert buffs Atk by +4 after getting hit once, while Brawly can self-buff Attack to top himself off if needed. The Tyranitar has X Defense All but it’s the only Defense layer threatening Brawly’s sync multiplier, so that’s not too bad.To support Brawly I brought Funky Monky. This is a deliberate choice because it grants Brawly +48 Atk through Type Skills which is quite significant when his Atk stat hovers the 230 range. Tech Primeape plays similarly to Brawly except that On a Roll 1 guarantees Tech Primeape achieves Defense drops every time it hits with Rock Smash.The Eggmon Compendium: stream Pokémon Masters sometimes:
