De-bugging The System

Posted by Ballom , Jun 13 2008 · 304 views

Yes, 'tis time for the Pokemon of the Week again. Blah, blah blah, etc. Today the PoTW is . . . Venomoth!

Venomoth is unique since, other than Yanmega, it is the only Pokemon who can use the ability Tinted Lens. This allows Venomoth's shallow movepool to bypass the conventional shielding of "it's not very effective", doubling the power of resisted hits. That, along with its decent Special Attack and Speed, makes the bug a usable Pokemon.

Here's the best way to exploit Tinted Lens:

Venomoth @ Choice Specs
Timid Nature
6 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
~ Bug Buzz
~ Sludge Bomb
~ Psychic
~ Sleep Powder

Bug Buzz and Sludge Bomb together make a good combo, only being resisted by a handful of Pokemon. Psychic handles some of Venomoth's common threats, such as Nidoking, Nidoqueen, and Tentacruel. Finally, Sleep Powder can put the rest of Venomoth's counters out of commision. Of course, if you don't feel comfortable using a status move in conjunction with Choice Specs, you can replace it with HP Ground or HP Fighting.

Ballom's Rating: 3/5. For its wonderful ability, Venomoth is too slow and fragile (in comparison to many OU Pokemon) to be used to any great effect. Still, it can be fun to use, on occasion.

Hmm, nice review. I personnaly like using Venomoth, I just need to breed the Lvl58 one I caught, and evolve the Venonat.

3/5 is an average score, seems to fit Venomoth well.

Sadly, I've never actually had a Venomoth. Anyway, at least Kopakalaka can't complain about my ratings anymore. tongue.gif

You're rating's too long for a UU Pokemon. mad.gif

Just kidding! tongue.gif

I wish I was more into the UU Pokemon. I'd train some up....

UU Pokemon can be useful, as many people who play OU have no idea how to counter them. tongue.gif

Yeah, I saw a vid of a good battler get destroyed 'cause he couldn't handle Rotom.

Rotom is awesome. He's a dual type, but only has the weaknesses of Ghost. Of course, he's also Borderline, not UU.
