What's the point of Sylveon when Florges is better in every way?

#1IceDragon77Posted 10/27/2013 9:20:26 AM
I mean, the two pokemon fit the same role, mono fairy type with lots of Sp. Def, and good Sp. Atk.

But Florges has better stats all around. Not to mention Sylveon suffers from "eeveelution-movepool-itis" so Florges even has the better movepool.

So why did Gamefreak make 2 similar pokemon except one outclasses the other, in the same generation?

probably just for people who prefer an alternative instead, and to keep Evee lovers happy.

they failed to make Florges a dual fairy/grass type

that alone is enough of a travesty to choose Sylveon over it

true, but it learns a lot of grass moves anyways. And it learns wish naturally, where as eevee requires that you breed a togetic with a pikachu and then onto an eevee.

Because fairy type hyperbeams are great novelty finishers, and totally great for making yourself lose otherwise.

They had the good sense not to make Florges a dual fairy/grass type,

That alone is enough to choose it over Sylveon.
