Opinion: Poor Armaldo seems to have lost more then its gained this generation, even with a new ability as good as swift swim it lost some good moves namely Superpower, Aqua tail, Low kick and stealth rock. Moves gained are Claw Sharpen and Knock down, which it also gets stab on. RIght now Armaldo prays for a BW move tutor. Whether these new moves and abilities will improve or weaken Armaldo is yet to be decided, but it does open up some interesting new options. It has nicely distributed stats but its typing is what lets it down, extra damage from stealth rocks doesnt help, and its resitances are too few. Hopefully swift swim will be a saving grace and raise this pokemon out of the NU tier. Movesets: #1 Swift Dancer Jolly 252 Atk/ 252 Speed/ 4 Hp Ability- Swift swim Item- Life Orb Swords dance Stone edge Earthquake X-scissor Hopefully in rain you can manage a swords dance and attempt a sweep with Armaldo without having to use Rock polish to get your speed up, this means armaldo can get the high speed it needs and an attack boost rather then one or the other. Stab Stone edge and X-scissor is going to help punch a hole in many things, Earthquake is to deal with any rock types that will switch in to ruin your fun. This set needs to watch out though because in rain Armaldo may not have the best advantage as there are other swift swimmers who use rain much better, and water type moves such as aqua jet will be powered up in rain and take out Armaldo before it can do anything. #2 Supporting Armaldo Impish 252 Def/ 248 Hp/ 8 Atk Ability- Swift Swim/ Battle armor Item-Leftovers Rapid Spin Toxic Rock Blast Knock Off Armaldo used to be able to support a bit better, whys that you might ask? He had stealth rock and now this rock type pokemon can no longer use this move unless learnt in 4th gen games. However Armaldos bulk can still help it survive while it annoys with the team. Rapid spin is gunna help get rid of entry hazards, toxic for status, Rock blast (which has stab) is good for breaking pesky subs and knock off which is handy for items that annoy you. Final Thought Armaldo has changed alright, but is it better or worse? It would be nice to get some public opinion because as one of the exclusive fossil pokemon it deserves more love so please, show some love and comment for Armaldo.
