And thus begins the cataclysmic battle between the tag-team of Hydreigon and Lilligant, versus the mighty steel serpent, Steelix. The dragon and lily team might not be able to surmount the high defenses of Steelix.

Hydreigon, having a pretty decent Attack stat, might be able to land a super-effective Earthquake attack on the Steel-type behemoth, but when it comes to physical defenses, Steelix is a powerhouse. . . So, that surely wouldn’t be enough to do much damage. Hydreigon might not have many more weapons in his arsenal to overcome the metallic beast. However, Hydreigon’s Sp.Attack is terrific, and Steelix’s relatively low Sp.Defense is its potential weakness. Hydreigon’s Special STAB Dragon-type moves might not leave a dent in Steelix, but the hydra does have access to Flamethrower and Fire Blast, as well as Surf (Water-type being super-effective against Steelix). With his battle partner, Lilligant, together, the two of them just might be able to do some damage – if they’re lucky . . .

As for Lilligant – she really doesn’t have much of an arsenal at all -- mainly Grass-type moves, which have little effect on Steelix. Despite her higher-than-average Sp.Attack, she doesn’t have many attack choices. If she uses Teeter Dance in attempt to throw off Steelix, it would confuse her partner as well. . .

Now, Steelix has access to Ice Fang, which could easily decimate both team-mates, as both are weak to Ice-type moves.

Things look bleak for this unlikely dragon and flower tag-team. . . I’m rooting for them, but the mighty armored Steelix might be too much for them to handle.
