Under/overrated pokemon
« on: April 22, 2009, 09:24:23 am »
Just post pokemon that you think are under/overrated.  I think Lanturn is very underrated.  It has great HP and SA, Volt Absorb, and a great type combo.

You know there are tiers for this. (UU, OU, NU (which has recently been closed in some sites.))

I think that Skarmory is WAY too overrated. It drives me up the wall!
I may have some bias in this area, but Ampharos needs to be shown some love.

Of course I know about tiers.  I'm talking mostly about popularity/usage.

Jynx is definitly underrated. Its special defense and special attack are in the 300 zone.

^Jynx has only 35 base defense and would get nuked by any physical attack.

Personally I think Registeel makes for a nifty mixed wall of sorts.


I need a new siggy, because this siggy is shitty... shittiggy... shiggy.... something. Does that Steam badge even work anymore?

That's why it will pwn against a psychic type.

Tentacruel's kind of underrated.

"Mr. Toad, how many licks of you does it take to get to the center of a Rhode Island state prison?"
(BAM!)
"JUST ONE."

No, No! Beer bring pain!

^Jynx has only 35 base defense and would get nuked by any physical attack.

It's possible to get a Jynx with stats of :

HP: 274
Attack: 136
Defense: 168
Speed: 226
Sp. Attack: 300
Sp. Def: 253

168 doesn't sound like it'll be nuked in one hit. Especially if you're holding Soft Clay and use Reflect which makes Reflect last 5-8 turns.  Of course you can use Brick Break to remove it, but that's where Sweet Kiss/Water Pulse comes in to try to prevent it via confusion then you just spam the other two moves while rebuilding the reflect wall when needed. (Psychic and Shadow Ball, possibly Blizzard.)

What it really is, is all about stragety, just don't put Jynx in against a physical Pokemon.

Occasionally you have no choice as to what Pokemon you are up against.

Flygon is somewhat underrated. While it was replaced by the more powerful Garchomp in D/P/P and cannot hold it's own against other Dragon types, Levitate allows it to coordinate with other Pokemon that know Earthquake in double battles. In R/S/E Flygon is useful while trying to beat the game (though it's a pain to train a Trapinch) because you can have a pokemon that knows Fly and will beat Drake (Bagon, Snorunt, Spheal, etc. are inaccessible for most of the game, making integrating them into your team at the last minute a nightmare.)

I agree with Flygon being underrated, some underrated Pokemon can really be good Pokemon.

Starmie can be pretty good and it's not a fairly often used Pokemon. I have one that knows Thunderbolt, Surf, Ice Beam, and Psychic.

It can learn a wide varitey of combo moves, say, Rain Dance and Thunder.

I believe that Regice is somewhat underrated. The special defense and special attack that it possesses is excellent. However, its defence isn't all too good, but at least it is great against Psychic types.
