The Die Is Cast

Posted by Ballom Nom Nom , Aug 29 2008 · 355 views

Pokemon
Yay for puns only funny the first time you hear them. Anyway, after almost a month (!) of hiatus, PotW is back and, hopefully, better than ever! Today's choice is Castform.



Castform, like many of the previous Pokemon of the Week, has a uinuqe ability: Forecast. When weather affects the arena, Castform changes type to match the weather. In sun it becomes a Fire type, in rain a Water type, and in hail an Ice type (nothing happens in Sandstorm, oddly). Castform also has an almost signature move in Weather Ball, which has its power based off the weather.

Castform @ Salac Berry
Modest Nature
80 Def / 252 SpA / 176 Spe
~ Ice Beam
~ Thunderbolt
~ Flamethrower
~ Energy Ball

The given EVs allow Castform to take a decent hit, just activating Salac Berry. Then, proceed to attempt a sweep with his decent moves. Of course, Castform doesn't have too much power, so you may get walled by strong special walls or things named Blissey. As a result, try to remove those Pokemon before having Casty set up.

Castform @ Damp Rock
Modest Nature
80 Def / 252 SpA / 176 Spe
~ Rain Dance
~ Weather Ball
~ Thunder
~ Ice Beam

Again, try to take a hit to set up. Once Rain is going, Weather Ball packs a potent 200 base power (50 power doubled, plus STAB and the weather boost). Along with Thunder, this means Castform has some pretty strong moves going, and can strike pretty hard. Even Blissey won't like paralysis from Thunder, which can prompt a useful switch from the opponent.

Ballom's Rating: 5/5! Weather effects are always neat, and this adorable little guy has a few neat tools as well.

I do like Castform. I wonder if it'll gain a new evolution in Platinum. That would be nice. happy.gif

Yeah, I would like that. Hopefully, the evo will change type in Sanstorm.

It might become the new Garchomp if it evolves...

Maybe. Still, Castform needs a lot more Speed to out do Chompy.
