Samurott, Carracosta and Ludicolo are good Water-types. If you like SCHNITZEL. Seismitoad is awesome. Not like getting an extra bag of potato chips from the vending machine awesome. More like getting an extra bag of gold nuggets, kittens and bacon from the vending machine. Seismitoad is all kinds of kickass. This is the kind of Pokemon CAP tries to make its so good. And yet... | 38 | Seismitoad | 5.27876% | 5966 | 4.672% | 5195 | 4.977% | What. The. Hell. Are you telling me that ELECTRODE is getting more usage than this guy? What kind of heresy is this? Seismitoad is top ten material. Don't believe me? Oh, you will. Presenting: 5 Reasons Why You Should Use Seismitoad 1. Seismitoad's fantastic typing: Seismitoad's typing is a-mazing. It has one weakness, Grass, which it can easily play to its advantage. Partner it up with Sawsbuck and you got a core that will kick more ass than Hitmonlee at a donkey ranch. Seismitoad also resists Fire, Rock, Poison and is immune to Electric. That's right, this mofo can switch in on Thunder Wave and smack whatever poor Musharna that thinks it can paralyze your team. It also resists Stealth Rock, which is awesome. Seismitoad also gets STAB on two fan-diddly-tastic attacking types. 2. Two great abilities: Water Absorb and Swift Swim: If an immunity to Electric wasn't enough, Seismitoad also gets an immunity to Water-type attacks! Furthermore, switching in on Hydro Pump recovers 25% of Seismitoad's HP! Combined with its Rock and Electric resistance, Seismitoad is the perfect cover for Charizard, who is one of the most powerful Pokemon in NU. If Water Absorb doesn't suit your fancy, then maybe try Swift Swim. With the likes of Ludicolo and Gorebyss, rain is pretty strong. Seismitoad provides a much appreciated Electric-immunity for rain teams. 3. Stealth Rock: The best move in the game, bar none. And Seismitoad is an excellent choice to use Stealth Rock, as it can easily beat other common Stealth Rock leads like Armaldo, Golem, Piloswine and Golurk. That means that Seismitoad can not only get SR up early on, but also potentially take out one of your opponents Pokemon. And with its great bulk and typing, Seismitoad can easily set up Stealth Rock midgame if need be. 4. Excellent HP stat: Seismitoad's middling defenses are offset by a great base 105 HP. This allows Seismitoad to get the bulk needed to take advantage of its great defensive typing. It also comes with a few other benefits, like being able to make 101 Substitutes. With Leftovers, Drain Punch and Water Absorb, Seismitoad has a number of ways to keep its health up. 5. Great offensive movepool: While Seismitoad being unable to learn Waterfall and Ice Beam remains a mystery, Seismitoad has a myriad of other options. It has Hydro Pump, Surf, Earthquake, Scald and Earth Power for STAB. But that's not all! Seismitoad's coverage moves include: Ice Punch, Sludge Wave, Focus Blast, Grass Knot, Drain Punch, Hyper Voice, Low Kick and Rock Slide. That means that Pokemon like Roselia or Mantine who think they can come in on Seismitoad no problem better thing twice. And if you like more supportive options, Toxic and Knock Off will be sure to disrupt your opponent. There's 5 reasons why you should use Seismitoad. There are more, but those are the main ones.
