Cubchoo - Mid
Availability: Mid-game, before skyla (good timing too, as you can get those missing levels through her gym trainers!) Also to note in availability I feel, is it is one of 6 ice types available before post-game, (one is freaking delibird) and the other 5 are far far later.
Stats: Beartic has an incredibly high attack stat, 110, and some nice bulk for in-game at 80 a piece and 95 HP. It's down-fall is its speed, but sue to its nice bulk it hardly matters.
Well we all know how good pure ice is in-game Ice type can be helpful. I mean, you won't be getting ice TMs for a long while, and the simple fact that the only other times you will be getting ice pokemon in this game are undella bay in winter, all the way in the giant chasm (3 gyms away) and then post-game in twist mountain. This gives Cubchoo a great amount of merit.
Skyla: Yeah, tech it rock slide and it wrecks her swanna, and swoobat I suppose, although it doesn't really matter whether you go rock slide or <insert ice attack you have at this point>.
Drayden Ice versus dragon - and unless you are playing in winter the only ice pokemon available at the point.
Marlon Sure, can be handy. In challenge mode you can rock slide his mantine, but besides that you can deal some big damage on some of his walls before you faint.
Marshall You mad bro?
Shauntal Can be good on her golurk if you give it a fight berry. Also great on drifblim. Keep away from cofagrigus though... IT BURNS!
Grimsley Yeah, he's good against this guy. Keep away from bisharp and scrafty and he can do pretty darn well against the rest of his frail team.
Caitlin Nothing special, but not overly bad. Stay away from reuniclus though, it has focus blast.
Iris He really is very good. Hydreigon, aggron, druddigon and archeops do give you a bit of trouble, but just being able to take out her haxorus easily is very handy.
