Let's talk about Xatu

I see that Xatu has one of the best abilities in the game: magic bounce, however it seems like it's stats are so pitiful that it looks like it'll go down in one hit. Has anyone had any luck using it?

Yeah use an Espeon.

Xatu is okay, but Espeon does the job better.

Steel types are the best!

Nostalgia clouded your memory? lol

Xatu is a good choice over Espeon if you need a Flying type or are playing a lower tier, but in general, Espeon does do Magic Bounce better.

Xatu, as already stated, is mostly inferior to Espeon. It doesn't help that it's moveset is REALLY similar to Espeon's (except alot more restricted). It gets a couple neat toys like Confuse Ray, Psycho Shift and Tailwind, but Espeon is alot more reliable overall.

I still don't believe most people on gamefaqs are even gamers. Just assuming they are embodiments of hate and stupidity taking digital form.

I think so. I remember you could catch it either in or near the same place you first meet Mareep? I always caught those two and along with Chikorita we would rule the world~
