Pokemon with better middle evolutions?

#1Kidpool16Posted 7/18/2013 10:56:24 PM
Are there any Pokemon that are actually better overall stat wise with their middle evolutions?

I always liked Vigoroth way more than Slaking. Is he one of the Pokemon actually worth using ever stone on? Is Raichu better than Pikachu? Nidorino is cool too.

I will always prefer Vigoroth to Slaking. Only using half your turns is a weakness worth no stat boost whatsoever.

Also I vaguely remember as a kid, refusing to evolve Loudred because of how hideous I found Exploud.

Uh but his attack is HUGE. And if you can get the ability off of him, he can attack every turn...

Also, Chansey+Eviolite is better than Blissey I think.

Yeah but still, I feel pretty defenseless only being able to attack one out of every two turns. It's like using a strong move with low accuracy and missing; it feels like a waste.

And aside from skill swap I'm not sure there really is a way to get the ability off him

im not sure over all, but if you give a rhydon eviolite, it has higher defence than Deoxys Defence mode. and with that, maybe over all better base stats?

Rydon
Chansey
Dusknoir

Are all used almost as much as their evos. Mostly due to evolite
