Tryo used to be a powerful asset on field, but now it is merely a benchwarmer for many Tryo users. How did this happen? The answer is quite obvious, as many Tryo users have pointed out, it is due to the lost of its most valuable move—Ferocious Strike. Ferocious Strike was what made Tryo one of the most famous revenge killers, allowing it to deal a whooping 6500 damage(one of the highest unboosted damage obtainable before 2.0).
Lost of Ferocious Strike and 2.0
When 2.0 came, I naturally went looking for my team members, one of which is Tryo. I was quite upset that it has lost its greatest asset, Ferocious Strike, in place of a new move—Refresh. Of course, none of us knew what was Refresh, and one of my first thoughts was that it was like Adrenaline Pulse, both healing and buffing attack. I was wrong. It only healed and increased its speed, the latter being barely useful to Tryo. Having a high speed is not that useful on Tryo, given that it is a revenge killer, meant to set up by killing a weakened creature and providing a massive hit next round. Looking at its stats, it is quite obvious that Tryo is meant to be used after a set up. 1300 attack is not a lot, but the terrifying combo of RTC-FS makes up for it. Now that it lost FS, it nearly lost its identity. Tryo’s only set up move now is just RTC, which did no damage. Fun fact:If Tryo got back FS, it could beat a 2.1 Max, but that is not possible with its current move set, showing how FS is essential to Tryo.
How to fix Tryo:
Tryo undoubtedly needs a buff from losing FS, and I propose two solutions:
V1:Back to square 1
Crit Chance:30%(buffed from Bary parent)
FS(in place of Refresh)
All resistances remain the same, except an additional 75% Resistance to Nullification, which will make the nullified buff only nullified by 25%.
V2:Refresh remains, but with a change
Stats:Remain the Same as V1, but health is reduced to 3900.
FS(in place of RTC)
Refresh(now gains the effects of RTC, and heals based on current damage x1, priority)
Same resistances as V1, including 75% Resistance to Nullification.
What do you think? Do you think Tryo could be improved without FS? Or is there some other version of Tryo that you would prefer(I did ponder over a SIRTC Tryo)? Comment down below to share your thoughts regarding this once grand revenge killer!
