hey, I had a question about subseeders (ex: sceptile and shaymin) I really don't see the point of them. Your supposed to come in on something that will switch out on you, then you substitute. After the opponent switches out their counter, you leech seed them. Then the counter (lets say ninetales) breaks the sub with flamethrower. Now what you have is a sceptile with 3/4 of it's hp against a ninetales. Leechseed only recovers like 1/8 hp per turn. Needless to say, the ninetales then kills you with flamethrower, or you switch out. I just don't see the usefulness of this strategy.
