    Looking at Chespin I have a feeling he will get quite bulky stats. Something about the shell.

    Theres already Zen Darmanitan and Victini. 5 Weaknesses (made up of some of the most used attacks in the game) and 6 resistances. Its a pretty soso sort of combination.

    I have been playing Pokemon Fire Red lately on my android Phone.


    But I have Pikachu at lvl 24/25 and there are several trainers who I let him go up against, the Magnemites they have are pure pure hell, also Sandshrew. grrrrr


    Yes, I do have a Mankey which could easily take them out with Low Kick but my Pikachu needs XP.

    If you see a Cloyster expect it to Shell Smash and sweep: best defense is either force them to switch or attack with a 2HKO move (due to the dropped defenses of Shell Smashed Cloyster). Bullet Punch, Mach Punch, Draco Meteor, Thunderbolt, and so on.

    He would of been dead even if he switched out after the first shell smash it would of been 3x + attack which would wipe the floor with everything.

    Starmie has too many counters. Grass, electric, dark, ghost and bug. All of which are common moves. Should go back to pure water type, doesn't make sense that it's physic too. Might as well be electric or grass.

    Starmie's the best pokemon for Rapid Spin.

    Kyogre, Arceus with a Splash Plate and Manaphy are stronger water types for Uber, and Vaporeon, albeit slower, has more bulk and can be a better Special sweeper that drops the weaknesses that Psychic Dual Type gives, for OU.

    First thing I thought of when thinking of Fenniken becoming fire/psychic... Renamon from digimon. Hmmm not sure if i will like it if they go that way. Enough bipedal fire starters methinks.

    Ha! I thought the exact same thing. :3 I love Renamon though, so I'll be for than fin if Fenniken is like that.

    Why? He is seriously one of the worst fully evolved Pokemon in the game.

    I know. But Butterfree is pretty terrible for playthroughs as well. Obviously everyone can use whatever he wants, but using a pokemon that is about as strong as your other Pokemon were 10-20 levels earlier just doesnn't make that much sense to me.

    Seems very offensive, but very squishy. There's a lot of ground, water, rock, ghost and dark out there....
