What Pokemon are the best of it's type??

#1OLKreturnsPosted 4/23/2009 9:23:08 PM
Excluding Legendaries of course

For example I think Tyranitar is the best of Rock and Dark
Skarmory is the best of bird
Kingdra is one of the best Water
Electabuzz best Electric

etc

Okay, if legendaries and ubers are taken out of the equation, here's my stance on things:

Normal: Snorlax
Fighting: Machamp
Psychic: Alakazam
Dark: Umbreon/Tyranitar
Bug: Heracross
Fire: Houndoom
Water: Starmie
Electric: Jolteon
Ground: Rhydon
Grass: Exeggutor
Ice: Jynx
Rock: Rhydon/Tyranitar/Aerodactyl (it really is a toss-up)
Steel: Steelix
and, for an oddball to break the pattern
Poison: Tentacruel

Assuming no ubers, and I'll only mention legendaries with others options too.

*Dusts off G/S/C battling memory*

Normal
Blissey. Very little could claim to be nearly as big as Bliss/Skarm in top level battles.

Steel
Skarmory > You. Blisskarm was SO ANNOYING.

Yes, I changed the order people put up just to put those two together.

Fighting
Machamp. No other fighters come nearly close.

Psychic
Alakazam. No question in my mind.

Dark
Umbreon. Mean Look is just wonderful, particularly when paired with Baton Pass. Tyranitar is slightly unlucky, but this thing was a tank

Bug
Heracross wrecks much face.

Fire
Fire was severely underpowered compared to others types in G/S/C. I'd have to say Charizard got the most high-level competitive use, but people avoided this type like the plague.

Water: Starmie swept best, Slowbro was amazing as a wall, particularly in a Toxic/Spikes team, but SUICUNE HAS NO WEAK!

Ok, I'm exaggerating, but it was the top used water for a reason.

Oh, and Mirror Coat Blastoise or Suicune was funnage incarnate.

Electric
Jolteon was ok, but couldn't really do that much but kill waters/flyers (Except the Matteon in my Toxic/Spkies team, that was awesome), and it didn't even have great defenses to be switching in to anything. Electabuzz swept much better than Jolt, but Zapdos or Raikou were THE choices.

Ground
Tie between Donphan and Marowak @ Thick Club. Marowak for offence, Donphan for defence. Much better than options that have 4x weakness to both grass and rock (y hello thar Rhydon/Golem).

Grass: Grass really was underpowered. Gogo Venusaur or Victreebel though, ofc w/ Swords Dance. Just pass it some speed and it could do some unexpected damage!

Ice
Cloyster was pretty decent, and used quite reguarly in competitive battles, IIRC. Ice attacks were usually covered by the water type in the team, however

Rock
Tyranitar. Rock wasn't used a heap though. Aerodactyl was pretty cool too though.

Ghost
Gengar. Ptrapper, Special Sweeper, Annoyer, could fill so many roles.

Poison: Gengar, even if you never used his STAB on any moves. If we restrict it to pokemon who would actually use poison moves with STAB, probably Swords Dance Victreebel or Venusaur again.

Flying
Dodrio was a beast if played right. Zapdos completely outranks it though.

+ Skarmory for flying, I can't believe I left it off, it was the #1 used Flying type.
