    PU Parasect (mini) [QC 2/2] [GP 1/1]

    hi akir -mz [OVERVIEW] Parasect's access to the rare Spore and a solid ability in Dry Skin cannot make up for the several crippling flaws it has in the PU metagame. It is absurdly slow, has lackluster bulk, and has an awful defensive typing; it is notably 4x weak to Flying and weak to Rock-...
