Aerial Ace on...Krookodile?!

#1INFERTakuyaPosted 8/12/2012 3:40:03 AM
Yeah. The reason behind the title's kinda obvious actually; a Ground-type learning a Flying move? Seriously?

Anyway, the main topic's about whether it'll be a good idea to give a Moxie Krookodile Aerial Ace to deal with its Bug, Fighting and Grass weaknesses. I understand it's pretty stupid to even send it out there against such enemies in the first place, but I suppose a little cautiousness never hurt anybody.

Oh, and I assume that Fire Fang would be good too since it also deals with three weaknesses (Bug, Ice and Grass)? Sucks that it's an egg move...

The reason behind this is just me wanting to replace Foul Play with a more useful move because there isn't much point in leaving it in at all.

Not enough power.

STAB Crunch is just as strong as super effective AA.

Should I go for Dragon Claw then? I kinda hate moves that have downsides, like Outrage.

Aerial Ace refers to a sword technique called Swallow Return, which consists on a quick downwards slash, followed by an upwards slash. Hence why so many non-flying pokemon can learn it

The typing is because the name references a sword technique whose creator was inspired by a swallow in flight.

Ah yes, I always forget that

In short, it's just a slashing technique. It doesn't actually involves flying

Aerial Ace is pretty meh on most pokemon, due to its poor power. Coverage-wise it doesn't help too often either....

It's only really useable against pokemon that are 4x weak to it. So if you're particularly afraid of Heracross, Breloom or Virizion you can use it. Same goes for Fire Fang, the base power is so low that it's not really useable even against pokemon that are 4x weak to it (Scizor/Ferrothorn) because of their high defense.

Moves like Pursuit, Stone Edge, or even Bulk Up, Taunt, Substitute or Toxic are generally more useful.

Even though it is a sword technique, it is still funny Diglett can learn it.
