Wobbuffet!

Filed under: Uncategorized — tranasaurus @ 10:07 pm

Today I want to talk about one of my most favorite pokemon: Wobbuffet.

First of all, I love its appearance. I can’t help but chuckle every time I see a wobbuffet.

Also, in the Pokemon games, Wobbuffet may be the cheapest Pokemon to use in the game (and that’s why I like using him :p). His standard move-set consists of:

Counter

Mirror Coat

Encore

Safeguard

Counter and mirror coat deal back twice the amount of damage after a physical and special attack respectively, and when paired with wobbuffet’s vast pool of hit points, will allow wobbuffet to deal massive amounts of damage. My level 30 wobbuffet actually KO’d my friend’s level 100 rhyperior using counter. If the opposing player decides to use a non-damaging move instead of attacking at the risk getting countered, i.e. swords dance or screech, encore will force the opponent to repeat that move for 2 to 5 turns and allow you to safely switch to an offensive Pokemon while the other Pokemon is stuck buffing stats. Safeguard prevents status effects on wobbuffet, so poisons and burns will not affect wobbuffet either. Finally, wobbuffet’s special ability prevents the opposing player to switch pokemon.

The only options to beat wobbuffet are to either keep attacking (which may result in the loss of a couple of your own pokemon) or whirlwind it away (but it is still free to switch back in). The last option is to send in a second wobbuffet, which will result in a draw since neither Pokemon can deal damage or switch out.

Wobbuffet is the most difficult Pokemon to kill and is therefore banned from standard competition, but I still like aggravating my friends at home :]

  2. Hmm, seems like he’s a cheap Pokemon. It kind of reminds me of WoW when a rogue stun-locks a cloth wearer.

  4. Yeah his standard move set is pretty annnoying, albeit effective, and the fact that when you lose one of your favorite pokemon to him, just makes it that much more annoying. However I still find Chanseys more annoying to kill even when playing off their weaknesses.

  5. If i recall correctly,however; hes in the legendary tier, when hes allowed to be used.
    so if you play in OU or UU, you can’t take advantage of his cheapness

    also, instead of safeguard, i would opt for destiny bond, so that no matter what, you take out at least one pokemon, as opposed to tanking around.
    the only real threat would be toxic, because it doubles every turn, but other status effects can be counteracted with a leftovers
    the special/physical split in attacks that came out in diamond and pearl make it significantly easier to predict what type of move the opponent is going to make.
    for example, you won’t see a ddancing ttar as a boltbeamer, as ttar has one of the highest attacks in the game, eliminating the need to guess between mirrorcoat or counter
