What are all of Flareon and Glaceon's issues?

#1tremain07Posted 1/18/2014 12:06:17 AM
they seem to be the worse of the 8 as I barely see either one online besides their crap movepools what else is making players turn away from them?

I see more flareon than Leafeon, Umbreon and Glaceon combine.

Flareon's biggest issue is it took until recently to get any physical fire moves (which it was clearly built for) and it's lackluster at this point.

Glaceon isn't that bad, the problem with it though is if you use Smogon rules you end up nerfing its usefulness as being able to raise evasion in Hail seems to be the whole idea behind it existing.

Lack of movepool and bad abilities

The three good eons have amazing abilities and movepools to get what they need done.

Most eons take an offensive slanted support role, and they don't have the make up to take advantage of it

I love how people were saying that flareon would be godlike before if it got flare blitz but now that it has it people still say it's bad.

Please get over yourselves

Being yourself is the greatest thing. Do not let anyone tell you different.

Yeah

Espeon is almost solely cause of magic bounce

But vap and sylv are extremely alike in effectiveness and role, and take advantage of the one thing being a eon gives them.... A good supportive movepool.

Come gen 8 im gonna be said if pokemon finally get their dragon eeveelution only for it to be like Flareon and Glaceon and have too many things working against it to make it useful in meta and a struggle to use in game.
