Suction Cupz!

Posted by Ballom , May 23 2008 · 221 views

Well, as much as I would like to leave the previous entry up for days on end, it's Friday, and you know what that means! Yess!! Pokemon of the Week time! And this week's choice is a great one, I must admit.

So let's give a hand (or, tentacle, rather) for . . . Octillery!

Octillery has an amazing movepool to splash around in (no pun intended) as well as two great abilities, but is held back from stardom by its horrible Speed. However, due to Suction Cups, it cannot be switched out by Roar or Whirlwind, making it a thorn that will not go away. This, combined with its abilities, makes it a topnotch Underused Pokemon.

One of the best Octillery movesets that exploits its strengths is this:

Octillery @ Life Orb
Timid Nature
20 HP / 252 Atk / 236 Spe
~ Surf
~ Energy Ball
~ Flamethrower
~ Ice Beam

Besides the fact that this offers amazing type coverage, this is a good receiver of stat boosts, since nobody can move Octillery once it's sent it. The Speed values can get pretty high if an Agility is added, and with Special Attack passed to it, it can sweep all over with its broom of doom, provided no good special walls are in play. In Underused this can be a real team annihilator. Just add water.

Ballom's Rating: 4/5
While I've always had a soft spot in my heart for Octillery (aside from its abominable sound), his lack of good Speed and relatively low stats take it down a notch.

I still think it should be more of a Tank. I just don't get how giving something with 30 Base Speed a Timid Nature is a good thing....

Because it can be Baton Pass'ed more Speed, and can't be phazed away.

I suppose. I still prefer a tank, though. Baton Pass from a Ninjask or Yanmega, and it's going to have amazing speed, anyway.

Yanmega can't Baton Pass. wink.gif

And I suppose the rest is up to personal preference.

Really? I thought it could. Odd....

I guess.

Yanma can possibly get it from the XD move tutor, and be Pal Parked, but I doubt it.

Oh well.

Ah. That must explain why I was confused.

Okay, sure.

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.
