oh my goodness, this thing just doesnt want to stay alive.

took a bit to get one, since route 13 only has a few rock break rocks, to break, and to get to the ones i can right off i had to rail grind, and that stupid sandstorm made it really annoying till it went away.

but yeah got one now, and it wont stay alive, wont do good damage just yet.....at least my vullaby can take a hit, while doing meh damage.

It's slow, it's weak, it evolves late. It does get some decent moves a little later on though, Lava Plume and Shell Smash seem like something you could look forward to?

can it even survive long enough to enjoy shell smash?

In game, maybe.

If it's not against a special attacker or any Ground or Water types.

Or Rock types.

It might die if it somehow outspeeds an opponent and uses Shell Smash though.

I figure it's slow enough that it'll always take a hit before it can get off the Shell Smash, then after Shell Smash it's fast and strong enough that for ingame it should be able to clean sweep.

No idea how well that would work in practise, I've never used Slugma ingame, lol.

Me neither. Well ill give it a go soon as it can get shell smash and report back.

How about Reset? Because that's what you're probably going to do to your playthrough when you realise you'll never pass the Water E4 member. You're using one of the slowest Pokemon there is, have a 4X weakness to everything on his team and have piss poor health and Special Defence.

Zangoose is the one good Pokemon that came after Gen 1, everything else about Gen 3, as well as gens 2, 4, 5 and 6 is awful. I do not like Gen 3, just Zangoose.

I'd suggest breeding a Weak Armor Magcargo if you want to use it.


But Defense is its only good stat!

Use it as a defensive wall with Will-O-Wisp, Toxic, Protect, and Recover. Then send him out against anything he can survive against and heal the rest of your team while he walls.

It's not the only member of my team. So for the water E4 I think I'll find a way to get past. Besides there is always solar beam.
