    unfortunately, I only have access to <unmentioned device> so bear with me if this is done in segmentsor temporarily lacking a picture.

    Shuckle. I find him adorable and he is my favorite mon. Unfortunately, his viable options are very limited, but with black and white, he added a few tricks to his repetoire. Now, he has about 3 options overall:

    well, it turns out this `device` won't let me post any more words than what I am. If a mod or something could smash these together, or even copy, paste and repost, be my guest.

    uses, guard split in double battles upping the defensive capabilities of something are pretty helpful, in addition to the moves previously mentioned.

    and finally, the third option. It in itself is controvertial and gimmicky, but I have used it with success,

    it was, shuckle could do little more offensively even with+6 atk (or sp atk) but with power split, it not only cripples, but gains a means of setting up, and it will. It sits there with accupressure turning it into an absolute wall. By absolute, i mean 1100+ defenses after a single boost.
