>physical Electric type
As long Shitchu keeps Lightning Volt for itself, no other physical eletric type outside of this guy in ubers will be good.
But seriously now...
WHY THE FUCK IS VOLT TACKLE STILL EXCLUSIVE TO PIKACHU'S LINE? FUCK
What's the lineup for that? Electivire, Zekrom, Zebstrika, Luxray, and Eelektross?
Wow, that's sad. Only Zekrom can remotely be considered good. Luxray is just okay and Electivire is better off mixed.
>Wild Charge (<--- hit this 90% of the time)
>uhhhhhh Bounce filler
just fuck my shit up
>special sweeper without coverage or a boosting move
T-thanks GF for giving my bro Steelix a great Mega...
Wouldn't be such a problem if GF didn't want Shit Distribution Sphere to stand up for its name.
Klinklang is pretty much the the worst case of "no coverage" there is. As far as I know, it's the only physical Steel-type that doesn't get any useful Rock or Ground moves. Even Durant gets both Rock Slide and Stone Edge. You know you're fucked when you have to rely on Return for coverage.
That would be the shit with the right tools. Good Special Attack and Speed and access to Earth Power and Dazzling Gleam for great coverage.
>levitate + flying type
>specially defensive ice
>Physical Ghost Type
>Can't learn Shadow Claw despite having claws
>Luxray is just okay
Is really good
in NUwith low BPcoverage moves and passable mixed attacking.
Oh gee I wonder
Sanic. This alone gives it a niche.
It has guts, it can't even use it because it has no good moves. It's like electivire but worse.
Best of all of them that isn't a legend. Jack of all trades master of none.
All two of them (keldeo/lucario) are pretty good.
Volt switch, it has 80 spa and volt switch is a good utility.
But anon, lilligant has dream eater! That's all it should ever need, right?!!?
>specially defensive ice
I think you mean
Every fucking time.
Nigga being a physical ghost was the first thing it did wrong.
>Best move is shadow claw
>the slash clone
They keep doing this shit, they keep giving defensive roles to a type that has only one resistance (itself) and 4 (common) weaknesses and no immunities or resistances to any of the common hazards.
Why Gamefreak, why do you loathe the ice-type?
You have to be careful. Ice is one of the best offensive types so a good Ice type might be too much to handle. Then again gamefreak made the best two defensive types, ghost and steel, into fucking aegislash so they probably don't know what restraint is.
>Weavile is literally the only good ice type in the game
>if wasn't even that good last gen and owes most of it's success this gen to knock off
There's nothing particularly scary about actually offensively oriented ice types, especially since there are attacking types better than it that simultaneously aren't shit defensively.
>literally the only grass type with access to flamethrower
>no special attack
>running anything but mirror coat
FOOL IT'S LIKE YOU DON'T EVEN WANT TO KILL EVERYTHING
While obviously I do see your point, "special attacker with sheer force and complementary STABs and high speed" is already extremely busted regardless of what types you gave it aside from say bug or poison. We saw this with Lando-I. I hardly think this proves the point that offensive ice types in particular would be hard to balance and restraint has to be put into them.
I'd love to see a good Ice type. I'd be scared but it's better than another generic dragon. That there are so many Dragon, Flying and Ground types around shows how bad Ice types are and how much a good one is needed.
Just remember the only reason weavile isn't completely fucking busted is because it has no good physical ice move. Icicle crash is 85 BP with shaky accuracy.
And also remember there no ice type with over 100 speed and special attack at the same time.
>icicle crash is 85bp
Literally only 5 bp, or an eighteenth less than ice beam, with a 30% chance to flinch on one of the game's fastest pokemon. Icicle crash is perfectly accurate.
90 accuracy is shit and fucks you over far too much.
>comparing the innacurate move to the accurate special one
>not comapring it to the also inaccurate special move
Ice punch is 15 bp less
>mega gets shitload of attack AND prankster
While it could be
>shitload of attack and ability thats a good addition
>prankster and some defencive stats
>Physical Electric type.
>Physical Fairy type.
>Physical Psychic type.
>Physical Ghost type.
I use Zekrom and Electivire both as special attackers, I don't care how shit it is I wont be able to like them as physical attackers.
>Physical Electric type
Good ones: N/A lol
>Physical Fairy type
Good ones: Azumarill, Mawile/Mega Mawile
>Physical Psychic type
Good ones: Medicham/Mega Medicham, Metagross/Megagross, Gallade/Mega Gallade
>Physical Ghost type
Good ones: N/A lol (Although the most common Aegislash set is Special-Oriented Mixed Attacker, which most of the times its only Special move is Shadow Ball, then it has to use Shadow Sneak a lot. That makes it part Physical Attacker too.)
Slurpuff is a decent Physical Attacker, but as a Physical Fairy type it's just horrible and outclassed by Azumarill, which has STAB priority and Huge Power.
Slurpuff is faster thanks to Unburden, but it doesn't mean anything when Azumarill has STAB priority and both have Belly Drum.
