How in the hell wasn't there a theard about him yet? Anyways, let's write some serious shit. NAME: Ferrothorn TYPE: STATS: 74/94/131/54/116/20 ABILITY: Iron Barbs (does damage when hit by a contact move) HIDDEN ABILITY: Anticipation(warns if the foe knows a SE or OHKO move) - GenVI onwards NOTABLE MOVES(STABS IN BOLD, STATUS MOVES IN ITALIC) Power Whip Gyro Ball Spikes Stealth Rock Leech Seed Protect Thunder Wave Bulldoze Knock Off Swords Dance(? LOL) OVERVIEW Ferrothorn is one of the most well know things from generation V, and for good reasons. The first is that this thorny plant has a pretty solid and unique typing, it is in fact the only one Steel type able to comfortably take water and electric attacks, while still sponging whit relative ease Ground and Ice attacks; this made him a solid rain and antirain mon. The second is a godly stats spread, as well as a very solid support movepool, whit both defenses very high, unlike most others steel types, and still decent attack and two powerful STABS that don't make him total setup field. The new generation is a mixed bag for Ferrothorn: on one hand now he gained an useful resistance to Fairy type, and a decrease of Fighting types, walled by said Fairies, as well as being a Spore absorber thanks to the new powder moves mechanics. On the other hand he misses the loved rain, being more susceptible to Fire moves, although he arguably isn't going to crying in a corner like Kabutops and friends. He also lost the resistances to Ghost and Dark, this is minor due to his high defenses i guess. It seems also that he now has a new ability, Anticipation. Useful for scouting random HP Fires i guess? Will the King of all the Nuts(Ferrothorn's Japanese name pun) contunue to rule the metagame? Or will it be dethroned? Discuss.
