Puppet Choices for 2nd Run
« on: September 04, 2015, 11:00:04 AM »
Right now I am planning to make a 2nd, much improved team of puppets for a 2nd rerun (post-game) for TPDP. Catch is, I'm unable to decide between the 6 who will be members of my new team, as well as their respective style changes.

The puppets who are in my list are:
1. Mokou: Burn EVERYTHING! "her immortality a lie though T_T"
2. Shinki: The Makai god. And the one *spoilers* that started the puppet outbreak.
3. Reimu: Touhou's most famous (15 main games, many spinoffs and counting...)
4. Kasen: One armed, horned hermit looking for her missing hand.
5. Marisa: Because Reimu's there.
6. Aya: Such speed, much OP
7. Yumemi: Banchou! (her alternate outfit)
8. Nitori: Military costume otherwise, she's here because that's my first water type.
9. Sakuya: Too much time on her hands, and an equally huge amount of knives.
10. Momiji: TPDP's version of Cloud Strife with an added shield for some style points.
11. Sanae: Why not?
12. Suwako: Cute little OP god.
13. Kanako: Moriya Shrine conspiracies aside, the head honcho is quite tough.
14. Byakuren: Na mu san!
15. Utsuho: 6-ball that almost blew everything up.
16. Mugetsu: The maid of many elements, a true jack-of-all-trades.
17. Tenshi: Another idiot that almost destroyed the world.
18. Youmu: Chop-chop, lawnmower incoming.
19. Medicine: Bad guy? Not really a problem?
20. Remilia: Ojou-sama called. She says, "You're fired."
21. Akyuu: Someone has bad health.
22. Mystia: One of the initial members of the first team, but she wasn't there at Makai.
23. Suika: *plays "Tsurupettan"*
24. Miko: Someone hears dead people.
25. Eirin: The lady doctor.
26. Shou: The badass god of the tiger.
27. Yuyuko: Eat, bully Youmu, eat again; repeat process any number of times you want.
28. Nue: You were expecting (fill name here), but it was me, Nue!

Of the above group, 6 will be the members of the reincarnated 2nd team, while the rest will remain as the original 1st generation team. So... suggestions please?

Akyuu, because the pen is mightier than the sword.

Really... just cos the pen is mightier than the sword?

Also, about Akyuu (Assist):
Her ability, Frail Health is similar to Shedinja(from Pokemon)'s Wonder Guard. Any attack that does not deal Super Effective will be completely nullified. Hence why I considered putting her on my list of 28 potential 2nd Gen members.

The problem with Assist Akyuu, is that all the puppets used by your opponents are loaded with four attacks of different types, and you can consider yourself very, VERY lucky if they have no attack that can pierce through Akyuu's defense. Not only this, but Assist Akyuu is also too slow to be able to preempt the opponent.

Really, she's garbage, just like Shedinja.

If you know the opponents set though you can use her to manipulate or cheese the AI on certain fights. For example the speed run uses her to Wall Remilia's RemiliaP and she also completely walls the optional Kanako fight.

OK, ignore Akyuu and back to the main topic.

Who do I take? Aya is like, most viable, but anyone else?

AI is stupid

I equipped floating stone to Speed Konngara, and believe me, if you get a safe switch in, the AI will spam earth attacks even if Konngara clearly announces it has the stone

It's like they translated the AI and no longer understands what is Konngara announcing on the switch.

I like konngara. I used Speed one since I had nothing fast on my team, and even if I didn't put a lot of coverage, it does nice

I would like that she heritaged some better fighting move than righteous fist, since the dragon tail fighting move doesn't play nice on her.

I go with green mark, 2HP 64 foAT 64 Speed and crystanenum water/changeling/burn strike/overskill
