Note: I originally got this strategy from Marriland.

This stategy isn't perfect. There are quite a few things that will make it not work, like a Ghost type or a status condition attack, more specifically a sleeping attack like Spore. The strategy will still work if the Pokemon's ability prevents it from getting the status condition, but it might be more unstable.

In this battle, my Lv. 1 Starly fought my Lv. 100 Arceus (poison). Starly was holding a Focus Sash and it knew Quick Attack (a first strike move) and Endeavor, which are necessary for this strategy to work. In the battle, I used Endeavor after Arceus attacked me so it would have only 1 HP left. Then since Quick Attack goes first all the time, I used it and since Arceus had only 1 HP, it fainted, and Starly won.

This technique can be used with any Pokemon that can learn both Endeavor and a move that strikes first (Quick Attack, Extremespeed, Aqua Jet, Ice Shard, Mach Punch, Shadow Sneak, etc.).

Also, you have to make the Pokemon hold a Focus Sash (or a Focus Band, but I don't recommend it because it doesn't work as well as a Focus Sash).

Some Pokemon that can meet these requirements are Doduo, Rattata, Taillow. Treecko, Phanphy, and others.
