So lets talk shuckle & power split

#1AurawhispererPosted 3/21/2013 8:24:51 AM
So i have never used shuckle before and never used power split.
But as great of a wall he is, i may put him in my trickster team right after the tour is over.

Now obviously shuckle isnt used for attacking. More of a cripple type. So a few things: how effective is power split? Does it sway its foe or change the foes stats to the same as shuckle?

The main problem with Shuckle using Power Split is that, because Shuckle is one of the slowest Pokémon in the game (tied with Munchlax for the slowest), the opponent will almost always get a full-power hit on it before Power Split can be used. And for a Pokémon that lacks decent recovery moves, has one of the lowest HP stats in the game and is weak against Water, Rock and Steel (all common move types, one of which often gets boosted by rain), taking a hit first is VERY dangerous despite its godly defenses.

I love Shuckle.

I hope it gets a prevo so I can have it earlier in-game.

Its going to be paired in a trick team.

Soon as round one starts, ill be using protect on him, already knowing he will be targeted first so im able to setup trick room from either bronzong or dusclops

Hope for an evo then, so it can hold Eviolite. :P

What would Shuckle be like if they took 20 points from both defenses and placed them into his HP?

The same, or a little more?
