The Prime Suspect

Posted by Ballom , Aug 01 2008 · 110 views

Pokemon
Based off the titles, it's becoming increasingly obvious what the Pokemon of the Week are, isn't it? tongue.gif

Whatever. Anyway, today the PotW is . . . can you guess? Possibly. If not, just read on. It's Primeape!



While dwelling in the UU tier, Primeape has a few things going for it. In addition to having the highest Speed for a Fighting type (other than Infernape), Primeape also has the wonderful ability Anger Point when gives Primeape +6 Attack, the equivalent of a Belly Drum without health loss, when hit by a Critical Hit. It also learns several good moves such as Stone Edge, Close Combat, etc.

Primape @ Leftovers
Jolly Nature
32 HP / 224 Atk / 252 Spe
~ Substitute
~ Close Combat
~ Stone Edge
~ Taunt

You'll want Anger Point for this. Basically, Substitute as many times as you can. Leftovers will grant you five Substitutes, as long as there is nothing else to harm you. Hail/Sand Stream and entry hazards aren't good, so clear the skies and Rapid Spin before bringing this fellow out. Anyway, you have a 27.58% chance of activating Anger Point on the five Subs. Then, proceed to sweep with monsterous Attack. If you fail to get the Anger Point boost, Wish support can heal Primape to try again, if you want. Alternately, you can Baton Pass Primape an Ingrain to allow more Substitutes.

Primeape @ Focus Sash
Hasty Nature
6 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
~ Counter
~ Reversal
~ Meditate
~ Punishment

Avoid the above mentioned hazards at all costs, using the above mentioned methods. Anyway, use Meditate on a switch, Counter a physical attack, then swep with Reversal. It doesn't get much simpler. Punishment is for those pesky Ghosts, BTW. Oh, and you should avoid Special Pokemon coming in, as you can't Counter on them.

Ballom's Rating: 4/5. He has a few things going, but is totally outclassed in OU by his nemesis Infernape.

Hmm, I never liked Primeape.

Interesting review, though.

Why don't you like him? He's actually kinda neat, and Mankey is useful early on in FireRed/LefGreen.

Although I prefer Machop myself . . .

...mmm, I've always liked Machamp more... and now it has No Guard (meaning 100% accuracy Dynamicpunch), so... Machamp FTW! Primeape is pretty neat, though.

Yeah, being the second-fastest Fighting type works in his favor, and Primeape can be scary with Anger Point. Like Tauros.

I always thought Heracross was the better version of Primeape. Hmm....

I do like it. Monkeys FTW. Lol.

How so? It has more Attack but less Speed, has Guts instead of Primeape's two abilities, and is part Bug?

But yeah, monkey Pokemon are usually cool. Especially Ambipom. Even Slaking isn't too bad (although it's an ape, not a monkey).

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 response to "How often do you accidentally post in the wrong topic?
Never. I have these magical devices called eyes and this thing called a brain which prevent that. They're quite handy.

In "The weakest element"
Xenon, or perhaps Radon and Argon. Really, a Toa of Noble Gas can't control much at all, due to how few things they bond with. Xenon hexafluoride is all that immediately comes to mind, in fact.

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.
