Welcome Smogonites I would like to first point out that this only applies to Vaporeon with Water absorb and not Hydration, because in regards to hydration Vaporeon wins hands down. Now today while having one of those amazing conversations that you do on Pokemon Showdown we got into a discussion about Luvdisc and Alomomola which turned into how crap Alomomola was of course. But after looking at Alomomola's stats and movepool I noticed a very big similarity to Vaporeon so was like huh, lets do some calcs on these bad boys, What I came up with actually shocked me. I found that this Alomomola set Alomomola @ Leftovers Ability: Regenerator EVs: 236 Hp / 56 Def / 216 SpD Nature: Sassy - Wish - Protect - Scald / Refresh / Toxic / Magic Coat / Light Screen - Scald / Refresh / Toxic / Magic Coat / Light Screen Is fractional more bulky in each defense than Standard Vaporeon Vaporeon @ Leftovers Ability: Water Absorb EVs: 248 Hp / 252 Def / 8 Spe Nature: Bold - Wish - Protect - Scald - Roar / Ice Beam / Toxic Damage calcs to prove this Hide (Move your mouse to the hide area to reveal the content) Show Hide Hide Hide 252 SpA Choice Specs Latias Draco Meteor vs. 248 HP / 0 SpD Vaporeon: 318-375 (68.68 - 80.99%) 252 SpA Choice Specs Latias Draco Meteor vs. 236 HP / 216+ SpD Alomomola: 363-427 (68.49 - 80.56%) 252+ Atk Choice Band Haxorus Outrage vs. 248 HP / 252+ Def Vaporeon: 348-411 (75.16 - 88.76%) 252+ Atk Choice Band Haxorus Outrage vs. 236 HP / 56 Def Alomomola: 399-469 (75.28 - 88.49%) 252 SpA Choice Specs Tornadus-T Hurricane vs. 248 HP / 0 SpD Vaporeon: 273-322 (58.96 - 69.54%) 252 SpA Choice Specs Tornadus-T Hurricane vs. 236 HP / 216+ SpD Alomomola: 312-367 (58.86 - 69.24%) 252 Atk Choice Band Terrakion Close Combat vs. 248 HP / 252+ Def Vaporeon: 288-339 (62.2 - 73.21%) 252 Atk Choice Band Terrakion Close Combat vs. 236 HP / 56 Def Alomomola: 328-387 (61.88 - 73.01%) Ok so with Alomomola being basicly just as bulky whats the point? Regenerator, it makes Alomomola ALOT better as a wall. Now by know I bet your saying oh but alomomola has no offense at all, it's taunt bait, well for one taunt is pretty much never used in OU, secondly so is Vapreon because the only taunt user that comes to might is jellicent who has Water absorb and Finally yes Alomomola hits about as hard as new born baby but I think Regenerator makes up for that because it's a defensive pokemon not an attacker. So does it really make sense that one of these guys is OU when one is NU when they do the same things but with one more defensive and one more offensive. Alomomola should atleast be UU imo and it defiently has it's merits on non rain OU teams as a more bulky vaporeon. Now with my small rant over I would Like you to post your opinions in posts down below and have fun. Oh and pls don't just go I love Vaporeon <3 <3, actually supply facts.
