I quite enjoy contests, so it's a shame they have been a bit simplified in D/P, but they still require a bit of skill

So, does anyone have some strategies that can net you lots of points in the Acting sections?

The only thing I really try to do is "Go First" (e.g. Quick Attack) and "Extra Points if hits first" (e.g. Dragon Claw) moves, which whilst good, just aren't good enough to get lots of points.

Does anyone have some methods that work for them? Also, name moves if you can.

You can use moves that double your score next turn and you will almost always go first and then use 1 of the moves with extra points if first.

I use a tailglow - surf manaphy.

^Those aren't for D/P though, the moves do different things now so they may need adjusting. I don't really get the contests really, but the double score ones seem to work...it's the first round dressing up that gets me>.>

I got an Accessory guide from someone... I don't think it's complete, but it helped me nail several contests (been too lazy to win the others >.>). Let me find it and post it for you...
