Memento is quite an interesting attack. The Pokemon that uses it will faint immediately, but it will lower the Attack and Special Attack of the opponent's Pokemon, which at first sounds pretty expensive.
My opponent had a Chandelure, and I was using my Porygon2, which is one of the best walls in the whole game thanks to Eviolite. Anyways, my opponent knew that my Porygon2 would easily defeat his Chandelure, so he used Memento, reducing my Special Attack, and summoned Raticate. Didn't took Memento too seriously and used Thunderbolt against it, but it did nothing. My opponent, on the other hand, used Swords Dance (strangely, his Raticate didn't have a Toxic or Flame Orb... dunno, was weird to me). To make the story short, I managed to defeat that Raticate thanks to the fact that my Arcanine has Extremespeed, but damn! 2 Swords Dance and a Life Orb is a serious fucking threat, and all thanks to Memento.
