If you look closely enough, you'll noitice the rock has eyes. And teeth.

No, not the Duelmaster creature. What I'm actually talking about is the current Pokemon of the week.

As PotW #2, heeere's:


Relicanth is a strong attacking Pokemon with plenty of HP and Defense as well, making it one of the sturdier physical attackers. It doesn't really count as a sweeper, due to its lackluster Speed, but it is still capable of punching holes in walls like Blissey with its head-on attacks. Like the coelocanth it's based on, this guy is one Pokemon that will remain a strong choice for many years, just as it has since its creation.

This version of Relicanth will knock down brick walls and destroy villages:

Relicanth @ Choice Band
Adamant Naure
12 HP / 252 Atk / 244 Spe
~ Head Smash
~ Waterfall
~ Earthquake
~ Double-Edge

With no recoil from two powerful attacks, Relicanth is a force to be reckoned with. This makes physical walls and even Skarmory think twice before switching in. Waterfall is best for its better accuracy, but since this is a kinda hit-or-miss set Aqua Tail might be useful too. Double-Edge is there to do decent damage to this set's main counter, Breloom.

Ballom's Rating: 4.5/5
Relicanth is a reliable fish, but his low Speed bars this from becoming a kick-butt Pokemon.

Nice little review.

I'm curious, how do you choose the Pokemon of the Week?

Is it even possible for a relicanth to have 12 hp, 252 atk and 242 spe?

The Speed EVs should be 244...

I just pick random Underused Pokemon with a good strategy. And yes, it is possible to put those IVs into a Relicanth.

I changed that already.

If I May Quote Myself

In blog entry "An Analogy -- Life is like a Rubik's Cube: sometimes you need to screw everything up to get it all right."
Or everyone. Posted Image

In response to Seran's WIP image of his Boxor MOC
Although this may be a completely wild guess, I do believe that is a picture.

In blog entry "Dlakii"
Oh my. I didn't know that they made metal sporks.

In "Is there ever a time when you can't post?"
No, since I can always to to GD and post a couple hundred times. XD

In response to "I've forgotten how to blog"
Click "Add entry". Then enter a moronic title. Then click on the text section, mash your keyboard with your fists for as long as you wish, and post it. Congratulations, you now can blog better than the majority of BZP.

In "Hardest thing to MOC"
Fluffy pink tutus. Mainly because of the slight handicap of pink Bionicle pieces not existing.

In "Talking to staff members"
Talking to staff members? Well, I'm generally okay with it as long as I have my pepper spray nearby.

In "Mask powers"
Hurr durr.

In "What did you do during the downtime"
I sat in a shadowy corner in a fetal position for five days, rocking back and forth in a crazed manner.

In "How do you imagine yourself on BZP?"
I am a Nidoking, obviously. How these stubby little claws are capable of typing on a keyboard I'll never know. :P

In blog entry "Bascula"
Hooray, I'm a geek.
