#1renaldz10Posted 11/11/2013 2:20:36 AM
i have seen a few posts about how people really want a protean froakie and my question is why?

I have just got a lvl 20 timid protean froakie over wonder trade and i wonder if its worth keeping?

I think that's great and you should keep it.

Protean is infinitely better than Torrent and it's a Hidden Ability starter, which are considered rare for the fact that you need a friend safari to catch them.

and a type change too; outspeeding an electric type with grass knot means an SE attack is now NVE.

The Froakie line is pretty much a glasshouse. One hit and it's dead. You can't really be bother with an ability that's only useful when you are low on HP's.

While Protean gives you STAB on everything it can use. And it can use a wide range of different types.

Water, Ice, Dark, Poison, Normal, Psychic, Ground, Ghost, Rock,...

That is one of the reason I am thinking of trying a hasty mixed greninja, getting priority water shuriken

I don't know why, but I am completely unimpressed by protean froakie, the guy puts himself in harms way more often than not. *shrugs*
