Pokemon Spotlight

Filed under: Uncategorized — tranasaurus @ 9:26 pm

This week, I am featuring Gyarados, the atrocious beast of the sea:

This pokemon has been known to raze entire cities and can remain enraged for a whole month. This pokemon is brutal and vicious but is rarely seen in the wild. Gyarados has been in the pokemon universe since the first generation and is still one of the most popular pokemon used in the pokemon games, due to its amazing arsenal of attacks, stats, and abilities. Once its speed and attack is boosted with dragon dance, it could very easily sweep through an entire team of pokemon provided there are no suitable counters. Gyarados’s weaknesses include quadruple damage from lightning attacks, but rocks will also give a double damage bonus. However, gyarados’s ability, intimidate, cuts physical attack power, so try to use special attacks, or better yet, finish it off before it can start a rampage. Aside from its offensive capabilities, Gyarados is also one of the most memorable pokemon  because of its humble origins.

Magikarp has been at the butt of numerous jokes of how useless it is. It can splash. And that’s about it. Sure you can teach it surf or hydro pump, but magikarp still doesn’t pack a punch. But be nice to it for 20 levels. It will soon be a valuable asset to your team.

Don’t pick on crazy people, cause one day, they’ll snap.

  1. Magikarp is actually one of my favorite Pokemon. It sounds silly, but I think it’s because it’s cute… haha. If I remember correctly, you can teach it “tackle” by cancelling the first evolution (that way you don’t have a useless Gyrados splashing around).

  2. Magikarp has plenty of uses, it can learn flail and then start sweeping. But Gyarados is a beast with 125 attack base line with STABed Waterfall, welcome to sweep city.
