ITT: A 4x weakness to one of the most common types makes a pokemon even more viable.


This guy basiclly just said Garchomp is terrible, using his logic.

rofl


Garchomp is also part ground. Which is one of the 2 best offensive types to have in the game. Grass is one of the worst... unless you play inverse then its the best definitely no questions asked.


Because a good trainer could never have a Pokemon with amazing stats & movepool overcome it's less than stellar typing. I'm gonna make him work come hell or high water lol

I don't know what's worse: The bunny ear ribbon on May or that fact that the white hair hat doesn't look as great as the original. Nice touch making the fact that it's a hat more obvious though.

Hopefully my PS3 can survive the ordeal.

Here's a calc that will destroy Mega Sceptile's usability in OU in every way: (Assuming a 20 boost to defense and none to HP, as they never give HP to megas)

252+ Atk Mamoswine Ice Shard vs. 4 HP / 0 Def Sceptile: 408-484 (144.6 - 171.6%) -- guaranteed OHKO

252 Atk Life Orb Weavile Ice Shard vs. 4 HP / 0 Def Sceptile: 374-442 (132.6 - 156.7%) -- guaranteed OHKO

And for a Modest Nature Lapras:

0- Atk Lapras Ice Shard vs. 4 HP / 0 Def Sceptile: 160-192 (56.7 - 68%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

Hell, even taking into account say a 30 boost to Sp.Att for Sceptile:

252 SpA Life Orb Sceptile Energy Ball vs. 252 HP / 4 SpD Lapras: 408-484 (87.9 - 104.3%) -- 25% chance to OHKO Anything less won't even have a chance to OHKO the typical Lapras.

And if it's an Adamant Lapras?

252+ Atk Lapras Ice Shard vs. 4 HP / 0 Def Sceptile: 252-300 (89.3 - 106.3%) -- 31.3% chance to OHKO

Mega Sceptile gained a very bad thing with it's dragon subtyping. Unlike Meganium, it lacks the bulk to pull off a Grass/Dragon typing. Mega Meganium will probably get Thick Fat whenever it mega evolves as a Grass/Dragon too.

A 4x weakness to steel, fighting, ice, dark or ghost makes a pokemon lose a TON of viability due to Bullet/Mach/Sucker Punch, Ice Shard, and Shadow Sneak.

Thankfully the only thing 4x weak to Dark/Ghost is hoopa, I believe.


None of these will be able to switch into Sceptile so who cares.

I know. I mean that many people, including myself, originally thought he had white hair. Like I said, it's just more obvious now.
