Gotta have dat Levitate to avoid the super-effective Ground-type moves...!

+1 Tinted Lens

I never paid attention before and never realized MAGNEMITE DOESN'T HAVE LEVITATE! Mind = blown

I always have to remind myself of this when battling one.

Yeah he actually gets a niche that way being the only special based set up dragon


But Flygons special movepool isn't exactly stellar.

Oddworld, Graffiti Kingdom, Supah Nario Bros, and Simtunes FTW!
That light at the end of the tunnel might be a train.

Levitate IS the reason it didn't get Tinted Lens. With the exception of Bronzong, NO Pokemon with Levitate has gotten another ability.

Why? I have no idea.


Probably because Levitate is considered an essential part of those Pokemon's design. I know it's inconsistent with stuff like Magnezone, Volcarona, etc., but if a Pokemon isn't given an ability other than Levitate, then it means that it's supposed to always float.

Roost, Quiver Dance, Dragon Pulse, Earth Power. Seems like a neat moveset to me. It also has Hidden Power and Flamethrower/Heat Wave for coverage, as well as Signal Beam.

It's not amazing, I grant you, but Volcarona is an absolute monster even with just a recovery move, Quiver Dance, and two STAB attacks. With that moveset very few things could wall it, and those few things could be dealt with through HP.
