Today's analysis of badassery is that of yet another new Pokémon. This one's caught more than its fair share of flak for being... let's see... unoriginal, ugly, bad typing, need I continue? Well, anyway, as you've probably already gathered, today we cover Garbodor.
Now, Garbodor's caught a lot of flak for being ugly. I say those freaks know not what they talk about. Garbodor is not ugly. It is a badass beast that takes the offensiveness of garbage to a whole new level. Garbodor is what happens when we as humans show open disgust at garbage- and the garbage fights back!
First off, look. at. that. face. That crazed expression with bared fangs shows you that Garbodor is NOT something you want to mess with. And people actually say it's unoriginal. No. Trubbish, though extremely adorable, is unoriginal. A trash bag Pokémon. Garbodor is a trash bag that exploded from being overstuffed. Now THAT'S original! And pay attention to the attention to detail. Its right fingers are drinking straws and its left arm is electrical wire. How can anyone say that nobody put any thought into Garbodor?
As for its performance in battle... OK, I'll be straight up with you here, Garbodor's stats? I've seen better. Regardless, it does what it does very well. It's suited to laying down Spikes and Toxic Spikes, then exploding in the foe's face. Besides, while the Poison-type isn't exactly known for fantastic type coverage, it is rather good defensively, only being weak to two types- Ground and Psychic. Also, with the upgrade Stench recieved this generation, Garbodor can spam moves like Rock Blast and DoubleSlap for some awesome flinch hax. And you know what's even cooler about Garbodor? The psychic power. It learns Psychic. It is a trash heap with psychic power. Top that.
Pokédex entries! Let's see... They absorb garbage and make it part of their bodies. They absorb garbage. This means they take the contents of a garbage dump, which would otherwise just sit around, smell bad, and take up space, and they make it part of their bodies, put it to use. Garbodor is a pioneer in the field of recycling! And I think you'll all agree with me when I say, what could be more badass than being environmentally friendly?
That's it for now. Join us next time (oh, BTW, I'm going away for the weekend, and I'm leaving today. No internet access where I am, so the next one won't be for a while) when we cover... something else.
