Hello everyone and welcome to my 192nd analysis, this time featuring Nadiel the Pyromancer.
Pyromancer has a trait that is universally useful, but one that makes him especially deadly against Freeze deniers. Sitting at the Speed tier of 3465 allows Pyromancer to outspeed Lucifire the Hopefreezer, Greedy Dragon and Megaosteum while tying with General Darmith and Lucifire the Helltaser. Being a Nature monster in a book teeming with Fire types is a serious disadvantage, but Pyromancer finds a one-turn way out of this with AOE 100% Damage Reduction. He also has access to the deadly AOE Burn+Ignite, which can strip away 70% of enemies' Life in just 2 turns! This, combined with Pyromancer's respectable Base Strength and the move's good Base Power, will usually end up killing targets in at most 2 turns. However, his AOE's impressiveness is somewhat overshadowed by Lucifire who has the exact same AOE (minus the negate heal which is rather irrelevant) but with 5 more Base Power. Plus, being a Nature monster is bad in Dragon, as Granuy and Darmith's Bodyguard can both outrun and deal massive damage to him.
-Huascaran/Pack Nature Pact
Runes: 1 Strength 2 Speed/2 Strength 1 Speed
(If you have all Group 3 moves learned on a Nemesis monster at the same time, the next time you'd normally learn a Group 3 move, a Group 4 move will show up instead. Using this method it's possible to have 2 Group 4 moves on a level 100 Nemesis, by replacing the 4th move you have with the Group 4 you're offered, then replacing one of the Group 3 moves with the other Group 4.)
Protect Ecosystem is an AOE that has 40 Base Power and is unresisted, and equally important is the AOE 100% Damage Reduction. Chimborazo applies Burn and Ignite to all enemies hit while also having good power itself. Buninyong is Chimborazo minus the Burning (not Ignite). Lastly, Huascaran can be used to have something against Mountezuma and Timerion, but Pack Nature Pact can be used to smack Eggeater and to have variety in elements, also the debuff may come in handy sometimes. 1 Strength 2 Speed allows him to outspeed 2 Strength 1 Speed attackers and apply his 100% Damage Reduction. 2 Strength 1 Speed is instead a more damage oriented spread.
Teammates: Users of Fire Weakness can help Pyromancer since most Dragons have the Fire element and can resist Chimborazo, plus the debuff greatly increases Pyromancer's damage output.
Countering Nadiel the Pyromancer: Granuy and Darmith's Bodyguard are faster and can damage Pyromancer significantly while he can't do much back to them. General Darmith has a chance to dodge the Damage Reduction and can smack Pyromancer back with his Fire moves.
