lol, you're kidding me right
HP EVs maximize the amount of not-super effective damage Scolipede can take and heal with Black Sludge. Being the cornerstone offensive support of my team, it needs survivability
. Protect guarantees a free turn of Speed Boost, something that can become vital in a metagame filled with speedy shitsacks and is ESPECIALLY important so I can safely Baton Pass outside of priority users.
Name all the ways Protect can be bypassed. I have yet to find a single user. They're all too busy jerking off to priority attacks that hit as hard as Hyper Beam.
By the time my Scolipede uses it? Do you even know what Protect does?
The only possibility is going to ATK EVs and swapping Protect for an attack/coverage and staying on the offensive with Scolipede so that I can just kill their monsters and get Speed Boosts instead of sitting around, but this is different from the idea that Protect is useless
