I didn't mean Hypno or Snorlax, I meant a pokemon that looks weak but actually powerful.
I meant Pokemon who's design is unassuming but actually powerful.What exactly do you mean by "looks weak". Pure appearance-wise, you could say Mew looks weak since it's some sort of cat fetus. Yet it's a legendary Pokemon. Or Pokemon like Magikarp and Cosmog who look and are pathetic but become beasts later on
I loved using Plusle! Used it in Sapphire, Colosseum, and Alpha Sapphire. Sure it's not the most powerful, but it's definitely better than people give it credit for when they write it off as a Pika clone. I'll always have a special place in my heart for the little thing : )I'm not sure if this really fits your criteria, but the plusle you're given in Pokemon Colosseum really helped me in my playthrough. The game is always doubles, which plusle/minun are clearly designed for, so it shines much better here than in main series games. This game was the one time I actively kept and used Helping Hand on multiple occasions. Most of my team were special users so plusle's Fake Tears was a good supporting move too. In addition, I used the suicune who had Rain Dance on my team so the Surf/Thunder combo was pretty useful in most fights iirc.
Anything with prankster can be a real nuisance. Especially in doubles.Volbeat is pretty underrated I'd say. Prankster is a very good ability, and the ability to Baton Pass Tail Glow shouldn't be underestimated. Give it a Focus Sash and it's hard to prevent it from passing +3 Sp.Atk to a teammate if you aren't prepared.
Ah. Well... I like to use Snorlaxes that know Immunity. Comes in handy sometimes against teams and/or trainers that rely on poisoning. Or basically using any kind of ability that helps to protect. That can be helpful. Damp, and other abilities like it.I didn't mean Hypno or Snorlax, I meant a pokemon that looks weak but actually powerful.
Oh definitely. I've been experimenting lately with Prankster Meowstic in doubles. I'm using it as a Trick Room setter next to Z-Power Trick Shuckle, primarily because it has Prankster Charm to buff Shuckle's attack stat on the second turn before Shuckle attacks. Turn 1 is setup turn, and on turn 2 I can already attack with a +3 attack Power Tricked Shuckle in Trick Room, which is an attack stat of 775 at level 50. And if the enemy has Intimidate (which is quite common in doubles with Salamence and Landorus being so popular), Shuckle reaches +4 attack instead, or 930 attack at level 50, it's insane. Meowstic is also the only pokémon with Prankster Quick Guard, which means it can always get Quick Guard up before an opponent uses Fake Out, regardless of speed stat.Anything with prankster can be a real nuisance. Especially in doubles.
I traded an Ursaring in the global trade and got a Farfetch'd with inner focus. (Boo!)farfetch'd, bravebird, leaf blade, dark attack and first impression mixed with a 90 base atk and defiant. it can take a few people by surprise in the right conditions.
yeah, he was the butt of the gen1 jokes but dont overlook him. i had 1 double battle with Fetch'd in the lead and they had had focused in on him for half the battle. had a focus sash as fetch'd has the best stats to survive neutral hits (joke) but its very situational.I traded an Ursaring in the global trade and got a Farfetch'd with inner focus.

It took until US/UM, but that duck actually has potential if you give him a stick! He is going to crit for days and it will hurt.
