Hello everyone and welcome to my 193rd analysis, this time featuring Nadiel the Deforestator.
This Nadiel form still has the AOE 100% Damage Reduction and the awesome trait, but is grossly inferior to the other forms. It is also a Nature monster in the Dragon book, which is like disaster. Even though he's cheaper, I strongly suggest you buy either of the other forms.
Runes: 3 Speed/3 Team 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 applies 100% Damage Reduction to all enemies, which helps greatly against attackers. Araucaria is used instead of Sigilaria because the trade of 5 Base Power for 100% Accuracy and a great Stamina cost reduction is worth it when you're not an attacker-by the way, the move Poisons all enemies hit which is a good way to soften attackers and whittle down tanks. Endangered Ecosystem is a good healing move, and Nature Pact is valuable as a 2nd AOE 100% Damage Reduction. 3 Speed allows him to quickly use his AOE 100% Damage Reduction so that the enemy attackers are effectively denied, but Deforestator functions good as a Team Speed carrier as well.
Teammates: Mirror effects make the heal of Endangered Ecosystem apply twice for a sweet healing of 60%.
Countering Nadiel the Deforestator: This form of Nadiel is the most passive one. Having an extra turn attack renders his Damage Reductions mostly useless and Poison can be ignored for a few turns, so countering him is easy.
