Retards like OP are one of the reasons why this board is getting worse and worse.
I mean, it's good if you devote your entire team to speed control...
I'm fine with any Pokemon as long as they're good in bed
Needs a mega and a good signature flying type move similar to hyperspace fury.
Shame on you Gamefreak for not buffing this thing in gen 6
>Mold Breaker and Sheer Force
>Has to run Ice Beam to defeat Torterra and Hippowdon
everything in the formula was there to make a good competitive pokemon, but no way to boost attack and being a physical electric type railroaded it into relying too much on coverage.
still love his design tho
Just hatched two shinies of this wicked witch's preevo. Is there even a reason to use it when Gengar exists?
Mismagius fire-type movepool:
Gengar's fire-type movepool:
Also Power gem for even better coverage.
And hey, Mystic Fire helps cheese Bisharp if it doesnt have Sucker punch (or youre sashed)
>Not good in battle
You're supposed to play a Pokémon by its strenghts, and Kabutops is the physical attacker under rain. You can say that Mega Swampert hit harder and is bulkier, but Kabutops is faster, don't hold a mega stone, don't waste your mega slot and if you like to take risk, you can slap either a Choice Band or Life Orb and make it deadly.
Pokémon that aren't good in battle are these guys >>24566229
Sure, Marowak and Rampardos need speed control but A LOT OF THEM. They're slow, but not the slower compared to Escavalier or Reuniclus, also, they're very fragile, Marowak can work a little with its defense but its HP is lackluster, Rampardos is paper thin.
Mightyena is almost out of every league by low BST and average distribution. Everything about Mightyena is mediocre, it has Moxie Sucker Punch but Honchkrow does that better. Don't have enough raw power to pull Quick Feet and it isn't Bulky enough to play off Intimidate.
Pic related was good in Gen I. It had somewhat a lot of tools. But it just can't. It can't carry its own weight. It's godly Ingame but it falls too short in almost every format.
It can work as an anti-rain but any "Anti" Pokémon is useless outside of that role
Gimmick is cool, moveset is godly but its stats are just too shitty to do anything.
I love Marowak. Always been using her in Trick room teams in doubles ever since gen 4. But gen 6 made her unusable thanks to the Knock Off.
Seriously I wish GF had just a bit of foresight before randomly buffing stuff.
Ledian, man. Great design but its stats and movepool are Sunkern-tier
If only Forecast gave +stats under weather
and summoned weather on switch-in
nope sorry he's just gotta be shit thanks gamefreak
Delcatty is cute but it's shit unfortunately.
In a past life I was a skeleton.
Great comment about Mightyena, I sadly understand every part of it.
Every single fail was worthy when it was able to set up a barrier and a light screen in the same match. It's never easy to chose a fav, but for me Ledian would undoubtedly be a candidate.
>Great comment about Mightyena, I sadly understand every part of it.
And it hurts to type that. I like Mightyena a lot. Is a neat design, simple, but with enough details to make itself unique.
Back In Gen V I tried to pull of almost every set, but it wasn't enough back then. Now with fairies and Megas, it's even more complicated.
Even with Intimidate and Snarl; it was 2HKO for almost everything regardless.
Even Adamant it lacks power, and if you run Adamant you're still outspeed from a lot of things.
Sure, Sucker Punch is dangerous after a few boost... But you need to net a KO first. And if Sucker Punch and Crunch are your stronger moves, you'll struggle to net that first KO to start rolling. You ended being KO'd in the process.
It's very similar with Ledian, but in the other end. Ledian was designed to play defensively or supporting, but it falls short in everything. Mightyena could be either an attacker or a niche pivot, but it falls short in all those roles.
>Fake Out from 110 Speed
Raichu isn't top notch but its at least usable.
I feel ya. I wish he got Swords Dance and Volt Tackle.
I have never used Kabutops outside the original Red.
but these folks say its good under rain.
Now don't get me wrong, I've played at least two games every gen. However I have never really taken advantage of the weather. Is it really a serious single/doubles/triples strategy that actually works? I guess I have never made a weather team because I feel limited with me team choices.
What can I do with Kabutops on a rain team if you think that I should get into weather?
Can I have a decent variety of mons?
Should I go a different direction and try sand?
in-game and online, how do you use her?
it was kinda fun in mono waters back in gen 5
I know it sucks but I like it so I used it in every battle even if it makes me lose.
He's so close to be a trainwrecker, sadly GF gives all his attention to 'Zard.
it surely works wonders under rain, you'll just have to hit that Stone Edge!!
Literally the worst eeveelution. If only Ice wasn't an awful defensive type.
I really wish they would do some type rebalancing.
There are so many Pokemon that can do its job and better, but I still love it
>unanimously banned from RU
>A- rank in UU
It's a monster in lower tiers. Tinted Lens Bug Buzz + Sludge Bomb + Psychic for Crobat is ridiculous. Sucks in OU only because the general power level is too high for it.
>priority Wish + slow U-turn
>shit HP and defenses
>priority Baton Pass
>nothing to pass
