I mean entry hazards are basic level but op in the anime still, wont really compare it to the games. I can see the entry hazard being a hindrance, and moreso Im just happy to see entry hazards used here lol, they were forgotten for a long whileTo be fair, Stealth Rock seems far too elementary and basic for Cynthia; considering it's the strategy the first Gym leader in Sinnoh uses.
Edit: Unless of course; we see a modified version of Stealth Rock with Anime logic.
Using stealth rock is shooting themselves in the foot?I’m making a comparison I’m not saying that Cynthia committed genocide or anything. It just that like Cynthia Germany started out dominating but ended up shooting themselves in the foot.
