SAPPHIRE vs RUBY
As a little kid, the second deciding factor (after the box legendary) to deciding what game I was going to buy was the version exclusives. Now, such things don't matter in competitive play. But what if they did? What if you had to choose which Pokemon you get and which ones you don't? Which Pokemon do you think you would be better off without?
Team Sapphire brings Ludicolo, Seviper and Lunatone to the table. Ludicolo is a great Pokemon and considered by some players to be one of the best in the tier. Seviper has great coverage and excellent offensive stats, but possesses middling Speed and defenses. Lunatone has a strong Special Attack and access to Calm Mind and Moonlight. Do the Kyogre Crusaders got what you want?
Or maybe you are going to side with Team Ruby? The Groudon Grapplers got Shiftry, who has great offensive stats, STAB Sucker Punch and access to both Swords Dance and Nasty Plot. Zangoose is a potent physical attacker with Toxic Boost and Swords Dance who can swiftly sweep teams with its high Attack and 90 base Speed. Solrock lacks offensive boosting moves, but makes up for it with Will-O-Wisp and Rock-STAB, which its counterpart lacks.
Dancing pineapple or fan-handed tengu? Snake or mongoose? Moon or sun? Which side would you choose?
