I traded my Yveltal on GTS for a Xerneas, and I got a pretty good Xerneas with Pokerus, and I was wondering, which is better? Was it wise to trade? I have heard that Yveltal is useless compared to Xerneas, but I don't really know how to use Legendaries effectively other than just smack with the signature.
I have a Zygarde that I don't want as well, but I don't know what to trade it for that I could actually get what I'm asking for and it actually be worth the trade. What should I trade it for? --- 3DS: 3480 - 2549 - 4016 i make sense 66.6 percent of the time.
Xerneas is amazing for Geomancy. Give it a Power Herb and you have a Shell Smash with no drawbacks. --- 3DS FC: 0216 1295 1824 | Pokemon X IGN: Puppyfaic | Bergmite, Snorunt, Piloswine Playing: Pokemon X, Mario Kart 7, PMD Gates to Infinity
Geomancy is originally a two-turn set-up move that increases your Speed, Special Attack and Special Defense by 2 stages. A power herb turns two-turn moves into one-turn moves, but can only be used once. Shell Smash does the exact same thing in one turn, but lowers your defense and attack. --- 3DS FC: 0216 1295 1824 | Pokemon X IGN: Puppyfaic | Bergmite, Snorunt, Piloswine Playing: Pokemon X, Mario Kart 7, PMD Gates to Infinity
Generally more variety, a great STAB combination, strongest Sucker Punch in the game, and one hell of a bulky Pokemon with Oblivion Wing.
Xerneas has Geomancy, but you get one shot and that's it. You either get the boosts and sweep, or you get stopped and Xerneas becomes a liability due to no item since White Herb goes away.
You can use it as a Special Attacker, and it can definitely be successful since Fairy is pretty damn good as a STAB typing, but it's pretty run of the mill. Mixed is also good, but base 99 speed is only so good for so long.
Yveltal can do a lot of the things that Xerneas can do while having fantastic STAB coverage with Dark + Flying, and survivability and bulkiness that is surprising as heck. Try it out. --- PSN: julito427 3DS FC: 5300-9429-4816
I prefer Xerneas because of STAB Fairy Aura Moonblast, and b/c I probably wouldn't be able to find a good way to use both Oblivion Wing and Sucker Punch (I don't like mixed sets lol). Actually, it's probably because I only have Xerneas :) --- FC: 1693-1529-4475. Safari: Zebstrika, Emolga, Helioptile
