Is Deerling any good?

#1Game__RaiderPosted 3/14/2011 8:52:12 AM

So I am looking for something to replace my Gurdurr. I am unable to use Wifi so I cant get his final evo and he isnt as good as the rest of my team. Ive heard people really wanting a deerling so is it a good pickup to train?

I'm using a Sawsbuck in my team and I'm really loving him so far.

One of my favorite grass types.

Well I already am using a Lilligant so I guess I dont really need a Deerling too. I really do need an electric type. What wpuld be better a tynamo or joltik? And when can I get surf so that I can go to chargestone cave?

You don't need surf for chargestone cave. As for the comparison between Joltik and the eel guy, well Joltik is your kinda standard electric dude, good Sp A and good speed, plus some strong STAB bug moves and compound eyes ability means you can get Thunder over Tbolt.

Eel guy is comparable on SpA (or his attack is also good), and has no weaknesses due to levitate. But, eel guy's speed blows, he has slightly better defenses in return though. So it's up to you.

I'm going with joltik personally because I'd rather have the Thunder STAB plus Bug Buzz and hopefully get them off before my opponent.

This page starts (at the bottom!) the analysis of all the non-legendary Electric types, but unfortunately it got archived before TC could finish all the types.
