Kyogre needs +50 to its defenses so I can call it my favorite bulky water type


Kyogre is already bulky. It's got more bulk than both Slowbro and Milotic, for pete's sake.

Wow! I like Granbull a lot so maybe I should try this lol


It also learns good support moves like Taunt, T-Wave and Heal Bell if you force a switch.

I keep an Air Balloon on mine to counter the common Dragon/Ground combo, just to give it another way to safely switch in intimidate and switch out.

Becoming Fairy was good to Granbull.


Do you think it could work with Milotic and Granbull?

I use to use a Milotic, but I bred a Slowbro to use until Pokebank and I haven't looked back.

They are nearly l parallel stat wise. Milotic's defenses are (95/79/125), while Slowbro is (95/110/80).

Milotic
+benifits more from Granbull's intimidate.
+Haze/Dragon Tail
+Competitive
+Faster Recover (80 speed to 30)

Slowbro
+Baits attacks than Granbull resists.
+Benifits from switching. (Regenerator)
+Disable gives it a slight advantage against other bulky waters (can't recover/slack off/attack)
+Better movepool. (Flamethrower, Fire Blast, Psychic, Psyshock, Focus Blast, Energy Ball, Shadow Ball, and Aerial Ace)
+Trick Room?

Disable is one thing that made me move away from Milotic, I've won a few times because I disabled my opponent's only super effectice move or their Choice move.

I could see it working with Milotic, I've just had more experience with Slowbro. My team just needed a physically tanky Pokemon that resists fighting. I stumbled on it mixing well with Granbull.


Interesting parallel stats. Hmm I barely play singles but I'll give it a go with a few battlespot matches!
