The Meme Supreme
So you know basic attacks tend to work in threes? Basic -> basic -> boosted, with that boosted attack having some other effect (Mr. Mime makes enemies jump, Venusaur slaps enemies around a bit, etc.) - well the boosted attack works off of whatever stat the Pokemon uses the most. So Mr. Mime for example, who's damage scales from Sp. Atk, has their boosted attack use Sp. Atk as well. But the two basic attacks before that boosted attack do not, and use regular Attack.Thank you for the answers. Are all basic attacks physical or why does sp. attackers that uses base attacks benefit from muscle band?
Some Special Attackers use Muscle Band anyway because a lot of their damage comes from the boosted attack - Alolan Ninetales is a Special Attacker whose Aurora Veil move means its basic attacks become boosted ones when in the aura, and so benefits from Muscle Band's Attack Speed percentage increase and the 3% damage increase per successful basic attack. Other Special Attackers may not scale as well with Sp. Atk items so the boost for their boosted attacks is welcomed (like Venusaur for example).
Always love to hear someone's backstory for the game! I would never have guessed you were a Gardevoir/Crustle main so that's awesome, and it's nice to see you're trying out Blastoise too - it's a really fun Defender and I think you may find over time that it's as aggressive as Crustle can be, and awesome at defending a lane or scoring. I hope you do stick with Gardevoir to some degree, at least for casual matches - people should play their favourites even if they aren't very good. As for Absol, it recently got some buffs in the last patch (with mobile release) and the addition of Razor Claw to its held item toolkit was nothing short of a blessing for it (on top of the Super Enhancers that can boost Scope Lens to Level 30) so now it's a credible threat that can annihilate any single Pokemon 1v1... at least in the early game. It falls off by the late game.Since I have not really updated much about my own experience playing Unite, I'll talk about it now, since now it won't be as boring as "Oh, I used Gardevoir" or "Oh, I used Crustle"
I had mained Crustle before Gardevoir came out, my experience playing as Crustle is that he seems more of an All-Rounder IMO, a Pokemon that is good in all areas
Although, then again, that is only all thanks to Shell Smash, which is why I like using Crustle
I decided to main Gardevoir after I tested it out when it came out, I saw how strong Psyshock was (especially with Moonblast)
But today, I decided to go back to Crustle after realizing that I can't really do much of anything as a Ralts and am dead weight to the team until I evolve, which takes time with that Lv 6 evolution
I also decided to actually play as other Pokemon for once, I'm now trying out Blastoise which I bought thinking that it would be similar to Crustle, oh how I was wrong...
But due to realizing that X Speed was an item, I decided to test out Blastoise, haven't exactly done a proper test yet, but will probably do so today or tomorrow
If I had the Aeos coins, I would also try out Mamoswine, but I don't...
Also, I think Absol might have a bug due to its usability going up it seems and how strong it has become, it is almost impossible to win 1v1s against it, unless this is just me...
and even then, Absol's usage might've gone up due to being the perfect counter for Sylveon? Not actually sure if it is, but it would kinda make sense
I might not increase the defenses of Mawile during the Unite move, but the idea behind it seems solid! Hawlucha's Unite move may be boring but it's essentially a form of crowd control so I think anything added to it would've made it too over-the-top.Mawile doesn't exactly have moves that work together, maybe Iron Head and Draining Kiss to flinch and heal or Crunch and Play Rough to decrease Defense so Play Rough can decimate the opponent? Megaburst Omega's effect is supposed to reference Mega Mawile's Huge Power, which allowed Mawile to be viable in competitive, would it be too broken for Unite?
Also, Hawlucha's Unite move is kinda boring, maybe I should add something to it?
Damn, how many other characters do you own? I'm sat on 15k but I've bought Lucario, Machamp, Eldegoss, Talonflame, Blastoise, Mamoswine and Sylveon.Well, I went ahead and got Garchomp anyway. Still have over 26k coins.
