Mega Garchomp tho

#1SirPikachuPosted 2/20/2014 5:10:39 PM
Why don't people use him? He's got massive Attack and bulk, and Sand Force.

My guess is that it's because so many people do Singles, and he's not as good there. That's why I like Doubles. I'm going to pair him with Ttar for sand and wrecking power and Slowbro for Trick Room + Heal Pulse (or just pick Latias w/ Heal pulse if it looks like the other team is going to be slower.) for non-stop carnage.

Dat chin tho. Those scythes tho. Dat Garchomp tho.

You can't give Megachomp a Choice Scarf. Plain and simple.

92 Base speed is pretty fast for Trick Room, and it's not like he has a method of making himself slower (unlike Victini)

I don't give people serious answers unless needed.

I can see the speed issue. But I always use slow Pokemon, so I like it.

And yes, 92 is a little high for Trick Room sometimes, but if I'm going against some speedy mons, I'll use Trick Room. If they're all slow, I won't use it.

As I learned today, most people might be using it wrong. It's not meant to be used as regular Chomp, but as a mixed wallbreaker. Apparently it does a pretty good job at that

I use it and it works wonders with Sticky Web support (or you can pass a speed boost onto it).

I've run a Speed Boost Baton Pass team with M.Garchomp a few times, it's pretty neat...
