Wasted potential thread
Such an amazing design
> No physical electric moves
> One day gamefreak you will give electrolion volt tackle
>No physical electric moves
even with the recoil Wild Charge is decent, it's the fangs moves that are too weak to be considered coverage
no, great BST, shit stats distribution
120 attack with a meh speed tier should throw electrolion into an ok tier
Throw in poor general movepool and no real role in a team above RU
=Name of the thread
=Gamefreak could have done something with it
>Wild Charge is now 95 BP with 15% of recoil instead of 25%
>Luxrai gets Flamethrower
>Payday deals double the damage (+ technician) if the pokemon is holding an Amulet Coin and it also steals 2 PPs from all four opponent's moves
>Defeatist lowers the attack when HP is at 35% instead of 50% but the Speed also increases by one stage
Ability: Strong Jaw
reasons for normal:
- early route critter
- can run STAB return or facade to deal with burns/tox, immune to para anyway
- helps it deal with ghosts
despite not being a dark type
- strong jaw for obvious reasons
- outspeeds serperior by one point, because fuck that thing
I always thought
Eelektrosswould make a good psuedo legendary. More interesting than another dragon. Just toss another 85into speed and it hits 600
Speaking of boring dragons, the Goomy line should have been part bug
it kinda needs to have a second type
if its just a mega with only wilde charge as its best stab than its no better than Electivire
Ice,Dark,Fighting or Fairy be the best for luxray
Elektross Krookodile Haxorus or looked like psuedos
goodra could have be Poison
I meant there's no real reason to make it Electric/Normal, Electric/Dark is fine especially if you're gonna give it Strong Jaw.
It really is a shame about Wild Charge, though. I guess Electric's really more of a special type.
I could buy Krookodile and Haxorus as psuedos, but I'd rather have types we haven't had before
I was trying to look for pokemon from other gens that would make good psuedos, but theres a surprisingly small amount of three stage evolutionary lines that had all it's stages introduced in the same generation
Exploud would be a good psuedo I think. Toss it +10 in HP and +20 in everything else and it hits 600
Dark makes no sense thematically, that's why it's a meme suggestion. Black =/= dark.
Even Electric/Ice is more appropriate, since it's part lynx, and also space themed and it's cold in space and shit. Also ice coverage would help deal with ground.
It's pretty good in doubles. If you don't have an answer to swift swim kingdra like thundrus or Charizard Y you're dead meat. I like coupling it with a lightning rod pokemon. It's like not having an answer to shedinja in BH.
Could see that happening
Would put pressure ob the uberghosts Gengar and Aegislash
A mega with a good speed tier which threatens with strong jaw crunch+good attack stat which cant be hit by stab shadow ball
Yet would still be frail to Earthquake from major users such as Garchomp
Anon I think you may be onto something useable to gefreak
Now you need a electric/normal design which doesnt deviate too much from initial design and you are winrar!
>If only gamefreak payed attention to this board....
But that's wrong.
At least it had as a total BST, Braviary had a similar spread.
With 123 Attack, 80 Speed and Defiant and already access to Brave Bird, a secondary STAB, Superpower, U-Turn and other moves, Braviary is still just... there.
You can say that because it faces competition with Staraptor (Talonflame albeit a Flying-Attacker, is more of a cleaner than a wallbreaker) is less used and that Luxray will be alone on that niche; but 70 Speed even with Scarf is slow.
+Spe Base 70 pass only by 1 point at level 50 base 130, so you're already sacrificing power for speed.
If you go Adamant, it'll be slower than other Wallbreakers, a lot of the base 100 uses a little speed investment to surpass base 70 already.
Luxray is basically Electric-Flareon with Crunch.
Luxray is like the Black Kyurem of common mons. Also, would a Dark-type addition even fit it? Like others have said its name has lux/light in it and it doesn't really seem associated with dickishness or misfortune.
Luxray definitely needs speed.
Most of the unusable mons are either because of a poor speed tier, glass defences, or shite movepool
Can I also say Cradily could get a decent mega?
Cradily was a solid defence/setup in dpp days and kept a small niche in bwbw2 days
Its fell into dissue as its role was replaced by better mons (Namely Ferrothorn in particular in bw)
I could see mega cradily as a strong defensive core-just needs a bit of polish and cradily can return to a usage tier (not OU perhaps but maybe UU)
Yeah, but none of them were particularly good before they got their HAs released. Aside from Gatr, it has done fuck-all to raising their viability and overall, they're still the worst set of starters.
There's really nothing that can be done with this one.
Give it something good that will give it an edge over base Charizard. Some special coverage would be nice!
A better speed tier would push it up a bit.
this board complain about the cliche Electric/dark with Strong jaw
But it would help him alot
and like +50 base speed
