Countering Weezing

Heatran is the biggest counter to Weezing. Being of both the Fire and Steel types, it can resist practically every move in Weezing's movepool, which will force a switch out. Fire-type Pokémon such as Camerupt, Charizard, Magmortar etc. are fully able to switch into Weezing's attacks and do serious damage. However, if you want to completely KO Weezing, you'll want a Psychic-type. Any Psychic-type that can switch into its moves is logical, so you'll want to go with some bulky ones like Musharna, Claydol, Reuniclus and even Bronzong if it's Heatproof. Gardevoir used to be a decent counter, but don't trust it anymore as Weezing could kill it easily. However, if you're switching in after losing a Pokémon, then go for Pokémon like Jynx or Delphox. They'll be able to hit hard and fast, potentially OHKOing poor Weezing due to its poor Special Defense, but don't think of using them to switch into Weezing's attacks, Jynx would collapse under the Fire-type moves that are common in Weezing sets, and Delphox's physical Defense is just poor so it has a chance of being severely damaged.


Well that's not exactly insulting. Delphox's physical defense really is low, but it could take down a Weezing easily.

Complaining about that would be like complaining about bias against Gengar by pointing out it has bad physical Attack.


Except most Delphox run Psyshock over Psychic. Only a few run both.

252 SpA Delphox Psyshock vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Weezing: 152-182 (45.5 - 54.4%) -- 6.3% chance to 2HKO after Black Sludge recovery

After a couple Pain Splits, Sludge Bomb would kill.

Weezing's PotW should have stated something about being countered by a Pikachu.


Those Thunderbolts, Iron Tails, Volt Tackles and Electro Balls really, really hurt.

I had to field tis one as BH was detained. I was nice to Delphox and look what happens, nobody posts about it :p


I'll be quite blunt and say I dislike the Delphox 'jokes', regardless of who writes them.

However, I find it funny that this is I think the second time you or somebody else has filled in for her, you mentioned it here, and get completely ignored.

Apologies. I rushed this one last minute as BH disappeared, and forgot that specific bit about Belch. Corrected

Yeah she's fine. She just has a habit of leaving the articles to the last minute, and so when things go screwy, it leaves me to do it in a short time.
