So what's with all the hate? I know he may not be the best but he definitely doesn't deserve all the hate it gets. I'm using one in a heartgold playthrough and he's homestly one of my aces.
>got him right before morty
>immunity to the gym and SE astonish
>intimidate always helps
>great movepool
And he just screams gen2

I hate his face
>>
>>24600624
The face of an animal instead of oversized head like recent designs?
>>
>>24600620
What hate?
>>
>>24600677
I don't know if hate was the right term. More like lack of appreciation. It's very underrated
>>
>>24600620
Forgettable design, lack of great moves and really weird and outclassed bst distribution. From the day of GS' release until now, it never had a niche anywhere. Not even in lower tiers. No surprise it is underrated, really.
>>
>>24600706
Personally, I like the simplistic designs. And natural moves, yes, but it can learn a good amount of useful TMs. The stats are wonky though

Stantler is one of my favorites,the episode where brock takes care of the baby made me like it alot more. I can see why people don't like it and that's perfectly fine with me.
>>
I don't hate him, but he's just sort of forgettable.
>>
>>24600620
You're making Astonish one of its selling points?
>>
>>24600620
I don't think I've ever seen anybody express their autistic "hate" for Stantler like they do with Gardevoir or Thundurus.

That being said, if the word you meant was "underused" or "underappreciated", then there's a whole list of better normal types in-game and competitively. It could see better use if it had, say, +30 to its Attack and Speed.
>>
>>24600620
He's ugly desu. Real deer are much cuter senpai.
>>
>>24600743
The thing is not about being a simple design, it's just about not having anything really appealing about it. For example, in GSC, you can a big amount of Normal types, more than ten options, even with such a small dex. However, in comparison with the majority of them, there is nothing much in Stantler that makes it nearly as interesting as Furret/Raticate (initial and easy to train rodents), Jigglypuff/Snubbull (great movepool and better stats) or even Taurus/Miltank/Girafarig (amazing attack and speed / Milk Drink / dual type). Besides that Hypnosis early on, there's nothing different that would make someone let go any other option to have it.

Lickitung was basically in the same situation. It isn't as bad as Stantler is only because of its evolution and functionality in LC.

From what I've seen people don't like the 'tumour' tail.
Looked a lot better in the gen II art, I must admit.

Never, ever used one though. Not sure if I've even caught one outside of my AR phase in gen III
>>
>>24600843
Not to mention that Dunsparce became the obscure Gen 2 normal pokemon of choice.

A much cuter/better deer exist. Beside, a face like that wouldn't attract much artists.

Nobody like those shitty gen VI mons

Not him but Stantler looks like a dog, and not in a good way

I like it. I wish it got a Normal/Ghost mega.

Deer don't have beaks

It's fucking ugly. I never liked it even though I love deer. Sawsbuck and Xerneas are miles better.

R8 my stantler (^:

Stantler @ King's Rock
Ability: Intimidate
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Stomp

>>24600620
I just think it's ugly.
>>
>>24600852
>Looked a lot better in the gen II art, I must admit.
That looks even worse.
I mean, it looks like a pus filled boil that's ready to burst.
>>
I've always had a soft spot for it because for some reason it ended up one of my main mons in Silver version.
>>
Normal/Ghost Mega with No Guard please
>>
>>24602841
it's shit xD
king's rock doesn't stuck with moves with moves that already have the additional flinch effect lol haha :'^)

that's the set i basically used in crystal, pretty good there and destroyed both league, leaders and half of red's team with hypnosis, stomp, headbutt and hidden power ghost holding the pink bow haha rofl
>>
>>24600635
Kill yourself, retard.
>>
>>24604077
Would a reasonably fast Mega with Normalize + Skill Swap do it any good? Or would it be too niche to be useful?
>>
>>24604132
Your admitting reaction only supports his point.
>>
>>24600997
Why not :(>>24601021

Now I just feel silly for not knowing that. king's rock aside it's my go-to set for stantler, and depending on the scenario i've had surprisingly good results with it
>>
>>24600620
How has no one mentioned it looks less like he has a tail and more like he has a gigantic swollen ass tumor
