    Vote for next Dark Pokemon of the Week
    My Vote:
    Umbreon [​IMG]
    Honchkrow [​IMG]
    Crawdaunt [​IMG]

    Past Dark Pokemon:

    Tier: UU
    Smogon Recommended Set: Moxie @ Life Orb
    -Sucker Punch
    -Brave Bird
    -Superpower / Substitute
    -Roost / Heat Wave / Pursuit
    Nature: Adamant
    EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe

    Why We Recognize This Pokémon: Honchkrow, being one of three dark types with the ability Moxie, has a lot to live up to. Scrafty is much bulkier, and Krookodile is much stronger, but Honchkrow has found his niche to make himself at home with Dark type Moxie users. Honchkrow is the only one of the three, that can learn Sucker Punch, and it gets a reliable means of healing in Roost, which also lessens the amount of weaknesses Honchkrow has for the turn it is used. Pursuit is another good option to trap someone that may switch out in fear of a Moxie boosted boss. Brave Bird is another great STAB move with lots of power and can take out threats in the tier such as Mienshao. Substitute is a great move to use, as it allows Honchkrow to set up, heal, and take a Stone Edge without dying behind the Substitute. Superpower is also a good coverage moves to take out other Dark types or Steel types that would otherwise wall Honchkrow.

    What makes him different from other Dark Types?
    While it is obvious that Honchkrow is based off of a crow or raven, he also has the backstory reminiscent to that of a mob boss. The Italian Mafia had a lot of influence Italy, and then it spread to America. In America, the boss was known as the Don. The Don is the highest level in the crime family, and gave orders through the "capo bastone", or, the underboss. The only person who could override the calls of the Don was the Capo di tutti capi, which was also known as the boss of all bosses, or simply, The Godfather. Officially, Don was the style for a principe or duca (and any legitimate, male-line descendant) who was a member of the nobility (as distinct from a reigning prince or duke, who was generally entitled to some form of the higher style of Altezza). This was how the style was used in the Almanach de Gotha for extant families in its third section. The feminine, "Donna", was borne by their wives and daughters. Genealogical databases and dynastic works still reserve the title for this class of noble by tradition, although it is no longer a right under Italian law.
    In practice, however, the style Don/Donna (or Latin Dominus/Domina) was used more loosely in church, civil and notarial records. The honorific was often accorded to the untitled gentry (e.g., knights or younger sons of noblemen), priests, or other people of distinction. It was, over time, adopted by organized criminal societies in Southern Italy (including Naples, Sicily, and Calabria) to refer to members who held considerable sway within their hierarchies. Today in Italy, the title is widely given everywhere only to Diocesan Catholic priests (never for prelates, who bear higher honorifics such as monsignore, eminenza and so on). Outside of the priesthood or old nobility, usage is now fairly uncommon in the south and rarely if ever used in central or northern Italy. It can be used satirically or ironically to lampoon a person's sense of self-importance.

    thank you and i can't wait to see new x and y dark pokemon :) i wonder how many new dark types they will make as well as combined dark type pokemon :)
  15. Yveltal96

    Yveltal96 A little more human

    I want another Ghost/Dark that is much more bulky than Spiritomb and giving it a movepool similar to that of Sableye.
    I would also hope that maybe Yveltal becomes Dark type. Another idea for a dark type, is an Electric/Dark type Pokemon. That sounds wicked cool XD
  16. FairyWitch

    that does sound very intreasting acutally yve love that :)

    My Vote: Crawdaunt

    I hope Clauncher does not become another shellfiish like Crawdaunt. Crawdaunt is really unique. Whilst having poor HP and SpD, it can learn Dragon Dance and is best suited with the ability Adaptability, which increases its STAB modifier. Physically speaking, it's more defensive than Honchkrow, but still has less HP than the crow. Umbreon has the highest Defense and Special defense out of the three, but I still like Crawdaunt.
  18. Yveltal96

    Yveltal96 A little more human

    Haha yeah :p And if any of you have played the first inFamous, you would know about the black lightning the evil side gets. I hope an Electric/Dark Pokemon gets a signature move with lightning that looks like this.


    Tally so far
    Umbreon: 2
    Honchkrow: 0
    Crawdaunt: 2

    I vote for Umbreon. I love all three, so I figured I would go with an eeveelution >.<
  19. FairyWitch

    FairyWitch Metroid Hunter

    lol i never actually played that game but i saw videos on it and i know what you mean ;) also i vote for umbereon btw

    Vote for next Dark Pokemon of the Week
    My Vote: Umbreon
  20. Yveltal96

    Yveltal96 A little more human

    Alright, Umbreon is ahead 3 to 2 against Crawdaunt!
    I think that if Chespin does become Dark (like the very credible Pokebeach rumor has said) then maybe he will learn Sucker Punch, making him possibly one of the better of the grass starters
