The Possibly Fake

There's a collection of terminology? You mean "Outclass" as in type, I mean "Outclass" as in role in a team. Different types of outclassing.Again, unneeded wall of text. In Pokémon battle terminology (and just in this argot), "outclass" is very specific and can only apply to Pokémon that share some things in common between them. Yet again, Pendra can be a worse battle choice in general therms than a lot of other (Bug-type) Pokémon, but can't be outclassed by them as they cover different roles. Got it?
I will quote a statement made earlier by Outrage that complements pretty well what I'm trying to say:
How about we make another comparison to help your point across. Saying that Buffalon outclasses Blissey, both being normal types, is pointless because they do two different things. Likewise, Pendra does different things than the other bug types so its not really outclassed. Perhaps other bug types have more uses, but their uses don't encroach on Pendra's.
Also, "encroach" is an awesome word. Just had to say that.
