You bet your ass I did. But for the record, that was not intentional. I want to be the only one with unique mons :p And actually, this was not me. Though Pidgey sounds fun. Anyways, lets do an analysis. See how I'm doing. Lucario: 47 - Lucario is awesome. I'm not sure what else to say. One of the best movepools of a later gen mon, and good enough stats and typing to use it. The ability department leaves something to be desired, but hey it could be worse. I just wish I had opportunity to use him more. Tomohawk: 36 - Speaking of awesome, Tomohawk is my best mon, no doubt about it. Has an amazing support movepool to use with Prankster, enough offensive variety and power for when it is not fooling around with status moves, and great stats to work with. And Intimidate is cool too. Deserves all the use it gets and then some. Porygon-Z: 31 - Like Lucario, this guy is really cool and I wish I could use him more. Obscenely powerful and with a huge movepool. If I actually took the time to fill out that movepool, I feel he could be ridiculous. Gotta love him. Salamence: 26 - Mence is an interesting one. Its powerful and threatening from both sides and has a decent movepool, but is not amazing. If you can't hit it with hard SE moves, he can plow through a lot, but is not as reliable as some of my other trusty mons. A great asset to have, but needs the right situations to really work. Honchkrow: 23 - You know, I was never originally going to get a Honchkrow, but when I caught a Murkrow back in Fire Blast's Fog of War game, I couldn't just leave it. And I'm glad I didn't. Of my gym team, only Honchkrow rivals Tomohawk as far as versatility. It gets almost all of the important status moves and can hit hard from both sides. Unfortunately, unlike Tomo, doesn't have the perfect stats or typing to take advantage of all this. But he is unpredictable enough for that usually not to matter. The low defenses hurt a bit, but the extra HP is usually enough to make up for it. Great Pokemon. Gliscor: 18 - Can't really say much here other than "Fuck Cyclohm". I'll tell you more when I actually use it in some real tough battles. Though I'm guessing it will still lose to Cyclohm, cause, you know, Ice Beam. Fuck Cyclohm. Octillery: 12 - Octillery is really cool. Has an great offensive movepool, some niche status moves like Soak, decent stats and good abilities (ilu Moody <3). While I'm not surprised by the middling amount of use I really think more people should check it out. Braviary: 10 - Still a Rufflet, and haven't used it much, but that Sheer Force Sky Attack looks so awesome. And I recently learned that Braviary's Sheer Force Sky Attack is the strongest Flying-type attack in game, so thats really cool. Can't wait to use it more. Typhlosion: 9 - Well, Quilava is the best Pokemon ever, so its evolution has to be good right? Nah, not really. As much as I love it, Typhlosion is a rather mediocre Pokemon. True, mine is not that amazing as I don't have opportunity to use it much, but it just lacks to movepool to be great in ASB. Drifblim: 8 - Another case of haven't used it enough to really judge. Seems pretty neat though and would bring some welcome type variety to my Gym team, so that's cool. Gigalith: 8 - Gah, why do I never use any of my mons. I really need to fix this. I like Gigalith, but I can't really comment on how good it is. I don't even think I have used it since it evolved. Ditto: 6 - Gimmick? Yes. Fun? Yes. Have I used it since unlocking Imposter? No. Ledian: 5 - I love Ledian. Awesome support movepool and incredibly cute. What else do you need. Well, other than a passable Attack stat to use with all those Iron Fist Punches. But its so cute and awesome that I'll let that slide. In all seriousness though, while it lacks offensive power, as long as it is not taunted, it can be a terror. Simisage: 5 - See Gigalith. Actually I have used Simisage since it evolved and it won me a battle. Its pretty cool. Has some variety of stuff to do. Nothing amazing, but if you want awesome hair on your team, you have only two choices, and from my personal experience, this is the better of the two. Delibird: 4 - OK. WHO THE FUCK HAS THE OTHER THREE DELIBIRD?!?! THIS WAS ONE OF MY SIGNATURE MONS! THOSE OTHER THREE NEED TO GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY ASB NOW! As for the actual power of Delibird, lets just say this. In my Gligar's first 3 battles it had 0 KOs. In Epic the Delibird's first 3 battles, it had 5. And people wonder why I brought it to gym battles. Seaking: 4 - Still a Goldeen. I need more time to battle. Farfetch'd: 3 - Its Farfetch'd. What do you expect? Awesomeness? That would be correct. Girafarig: 3 - Haven't used much at all. I really want to though. It seems pretty cool. Liepard: 3 - See above, but add in Prankster. Wigglytuff: 3 - Mine is a Jigglypuff and never will be anything else. The only good thing it has going for it in my opinion is Friend Guard, which it loses upon evolution. Though on the other hand, Wigglytuff is the best pink blob ever, so I guess I might reconsider. Floatzel: 2 - Pretty cool, but generally outclassed by other water mons. Having speed is nice though. Gloom: 2 - I want my Bellossom, but I'm not close to it yet. Sandslash: 2 - Just evolved. Can't say too much here either. Wobbuffet: 2 - And the award formost useless Pokemon in ASB goes to.... "Wynaut!" Hey, at least Wobbuffet gets Mimic. Bouffalant: 1 - Used it once. Need to use it more. Has cool hair. Furret: 1 - Another case of "Its cute so I will make it useful if it is the last thing I do." Also, I just EV trained a special Furret in game, so I am excited to see just how much better it can be in ASB that the patheticness that it is in game. Minun: 1 - So yeah. This guy could be cool. Maybe. Nah, not really. Plusle: 1 - My only battle with Plusle was my... actually, lets just not talk about it. EVER. Stantler: 1 - See Boufalant, Girafarig, Gigalith and everyone else I need to use more. Swanna: 1 - Swanna is more awesome that it looks. Not amazing by any means, but considering it has like 0 coverage, at all, and as average stats as you can get, it is actually not bad. Glad I chose it as one of my starters. Unfezant: 1 - Can't really say the same for Unfezant. It hits harder, sure. It has a better support movepool, sure. But the lack of coverage hurts it a lot more. It is definitely not awful, and played a key role in making me a gym leader, but it leaves a lot to be desired as a battler. And lets see. My average for number owned, or as some people have dubbed, Hipseter Index: An even 9. Not bad. Not bad at all. Anyways, I'm off to get a Finneon.
