Emboar is the worst starter in the history of starters

Serperior and Meganium are handy for utility. If you're just trying to smash things with them, you won't see their true potential. Dual Screens, and Glare make them very interesting. Also Serperior can go either with Calm Mind or Coil, and It's really not that hard to make use of Meganium. I tend to use the adorable floral dinosaur on all of my Johto playthroughs. Just because they actually take intelligence to use, doesn't make them bad. Emboar essentially just rams at things with brute force, quite often damagin itself quite a bit in the process. No elegance. People probably use Emboar more because they like being able to plow through things, even if his defenses and speed are sub-par.

Cool story bro. You're just saying that 'cause it's another Fire/Fighting type. What's your point, anyway, and why are you so mad, you genwunner?

I think that I can safely say, after fifty-odd posts, that almost no one cares about my post and that I needn't worry about being flamed.

competitively he IS pretty useless, but design-wise he looks pretty cool. Better than Samurott anyway.

You all forget Torterra, that turtle died 20 times while I tried to make the overpowered starter on my team. I restarted the game it was so bad, it was outsped by evey single pokemon. At least Emboar can sweep

Emboar had the chance to be the best Gen V starter had GF not distributed his stats so poorly.

Half his 100 special stat and add 25 to each defensive stat an you've got yourself one awesome starter.

We're talking about competitive where everything requires intelligence to use lest you be set up on and swept. For ingame anything is usable and doing stuff like Nuzlockes or Pre-evo runs are the real deals if you want a challenge.

I like using Meganium because shes an underdog and adorable (and like I said, none of her movesets require egg moves so I can just use my ingame starter) but yeah she is pretty outclassed in competititve.
