Title: Parsee suggestions?
Post by: andaltmorf on July 16, 2015, 04:10:53 AM
I've rebooted my attempt to plow through the plot of Touhoumon Purple yet again (I keep getting distracted by other games and then re-starting), and I'm rather curious to see how Parsee would best be used.

She's one of my favorite Touhous, but I'm not sure what her 'thing' is in this game is supposed to be...if she even has one.

Stats-wise she doesn't look bad. 80/80/90 bulk seems fine (the set page for A.Star Sapphire mentions similar defenses and says that's decent, but Star has recovery moves), that 120 S.Att is nice, and the base 70 speed isn't completely terrible. Her typing only leaves her vulnerable to Steel types and a painful double-weakness to Faith, but beyond that she seems solid. The real question is where to put EVs, and what moves to use.

Parsee gets a lot of good attacks (STAB Signal Beam, STAB Dark Pulse & Dream Eater, Poison Bomb, Surf, Ice Beam, etc) but also a lot of 'shenanigans', which I'm not sure if I should be using or not. Heart's Eye, Disable, Spite, Destiny Bond, Will o Wisp, and more all litter her movepool, and I'm not sure if they're gold or garbage.

I understand if this is the wrong forum for this kind of thing, but single-puppet info doesn't seem to fit the Teambuilding one. I'm pretty sure that Parsee's a good puppet, but I'm not exactly certain what makes her shine, or if there's some drawback to her (aside from x4 damage from Faith types) that I'm missing... I know I want to train one, I'm just not sure what way I ought to be training/using her.

Thanks in advance to anyone that bothers.

Nobody's really managed to figure out what her "thing" in competitive play is supposed to be, either; she's kinda unused due to vanilla Satori existing and Trace being super neat. In-game she seems like a fairly straight-forward beatstick though; focus SAtk and Speed and hit things. I know Agastya used one when testing the old hard-mode patch Purple had, so she can't be that bad.

As for her utility movepool; Will-o-Wisp is useful, Destiny Bond is godly in-game, while the rest is mostly not worth it with the way her stats are set up. You could try it out though; Disable and Heart's Eye might come in handy if you have a free moveslot.

Alrighty, thanks. I kind of get the feeling that Parsee would be a lot better if a Choice Scarf was present in the game or something, but that's just me.

Bridge Troll Beatstick it is!
