Better baton passer: Ninjask or Scolipede?

#1Bigun750Posted 11/26/2013 10:38:14 AM
These pokemon now both have speed boost this generation. My question here is, which would work better as a baton passer now? They both have similar move pools, including swords dance, baton pass, protect, and some other gems. Scolipede also has access to spikes and toxic spikes. I am leaning towards scolipede being better, as its only taking 25% from stealth rock, and has workable defenses while still having access to megahorn to give it a bit of an offensive presence. Does anybody have any reasons to use ninjask over scolipede?

Scolipede is the obvious choice since Ninjask's only good stat is Speed, which doesn't matter due to Speed Boost. And like you said, Scolipede can actually pass multiple times because it doesn't lose half its health from SR.

For what it's worth Ninjask is still faster and does have a ground immunity. I would probably say Scolipede is better overall though.

Yup. Being faster right off the bat is cool, but that trait is better used with aerodactyl or noivern I think. Too bad really. I always liked ninjask, but scolipede was on that list too.

I'm surprised nobody is trying to use the exact same set that popularized Scolipede in Gen 5 NU.

Spike Stacking

I mean, it seems to have many nice traits for a spiker to have, so like... why not?
