Hey all! We wanted to let everyone know that the Pokemon GO section has officially been merged into the Pokemon Video Games section. You can find more information in this thread.
Cosigned. I still think of Unown as a legendary because of Movie 3 to this day.Unown. I only see people complain about how weak they are, forgetting entirely about the neat aspects of the Ruins of Alph, Movie 3, Address Unown and Sinjoh Ruins. Sure, it would be great if their in-battle performance reflected their lore, but it isn't necessary for them to get some love. Get over yourselves, Pokemon fans.
Finally, another person that likes Jynx. If it wasn't for her, I wouldn't have beaten almost everyone in Stadium.Even though it’s a gen 1 Pokémon, I would be remiss not to mention Jynx in a “most underrated Pokémon” thread.
Controversy aside, Jynx has never really gotten a fair shake...either she’s forgotten because the fanbase consists primary of boys or she’s regarded as creepy which is not entirely unjustified but whatever.
As for me, when Pokémon first came out I was a boy who was drawn to feminine things...a “tomgirl” I called myself. I always played as Peach or Chun-Li depending on the game and I’m still not entirely sure why but they just appealed to me more. So seeing Jynx in the Player’s Guide for the first time I was immediately hooked. It helped that the only one available in the American Gen 1 games was a trade nicknamed “Lola”, which immediately appealed to my previous obsession with Space Jam.
It wasn’t until much later when I considered strategy that I realized how useful she was in a play through of Gen 1. She of course has the broken at the time Psychic type and paired with Ice possesses a combo that’s still unique to her evolution line to this day. She’s definitely been overshadowed by newer Pokémon who pull the vibe off better - look at the popularity of Gardevoir and even Gothitelle is more well regarded. But I refuse to pretend the original “giant woman” doesn’t exist, even if she’s the most likely Kanto Pokémon to not make the Galar dex.
On one hand, I do dislike how it was portrayed in the anime since it's actually extremely weak, on the other hand, I have nice memories of my bootleg Silver that for some reason translated Hidden Power as TEA. I wonder if someone else has a copy of that one bootleg.Unown.

Yeah, but that was the impression they gave me back then and I couldn't wait to try them in my game. I was disappointed that my Totodile could defeat them so easily.Battle prowess isn't everything (they never even battle in the movie). The movie tied into the Ruins of Alph fairly well.
its ability is good when oponent needs to switch out and in. If it could self use perish song or be a ghost and use curse that can be taken off with switching then it would be perfect. Best way in doubles with 6 pokemon but in singles you can try to use a partner who uses perish song or ghost+curse and switch out for it.Why Perish Song? Do tell! (I love Perish Song)
Oh wow I guess you're right! For me, my main focus is always trying to make Perish Song the star of the team. Too bad there aren't many Shadow Tag/Arena Trap/trapping users to make it as versatile as I would like. I have never thought about making Perish Song the enabler of another gimmick though! Stakeout really does punish the opponent in that regards; it baits them into switching out meaning easy double power or pursuit plays. Thank you! This is amazing.its ability is good when oponent needs to switch out and in.

What a pitty that Gumshoos ability doesnt rise its power when it self enters battle too or is forced out by oponents move then the ability Stakeout should work like auto Pursuit and always hit the oponent before he switches himself or you out of battle or should activate too if oponent has Runaway ability.
#GiveFroslassAMegaEvoFroslass. I have never seen her in teams on Battle Spot.
I've used Froslass myself, and I like including her on my team. She's got good special attack and speed, and even though she's frail the Cursed Body ability makes up for it (as well as Destiny Bond). Snow Cloak isn't bad either if you're using a Hail team.
I get that she's a popular pokemon concept-wise (with all the fanart) but battle-wise she's pretty rare and underrated.
