The Die Is Cast

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.

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.
