    Purrloin. Dear god, Purrloin. This thing sucks so much it's unbelievable. Purrloin is fast but it is weak as hell. If Purrloin had bite (which is befuddling as to why it doesn't) in its early movepool he would be okay. Since it doesn't he is banished to the realm of failure.

    His best attacking options are what? Scratch, Cut and Fury Swipes until level 15 where it learns Pursuit. Pursuit would have been fine if it learned it earlier. It evolves at level 20 becoming a little stronger and good enough until you can catch something better. He has some good moves such as nasty plot, but where are the special dark moves? The best moves he has are night slash and sucker punch.

    Purrloin is pure fucking garbage.

    I could not agree more. I have finally given up on mine, and decided to train Pokemon that are more useful. And it's a shame too, since Liepard is a pretty Poke.

    Oh, I know for sure Purrloin and Liepard have let me down. I planned to use a Liepard, sure, and then I caught a Purrloin in game. Then I battled a few of each stage and realised how useless they are. Disappointing indeed, especially as they have such nice designs.

    I loved Liepards design, but I know crap when I see it (and use it) D=

    I was really surprised by how god awful Yamask happened to be. Compared to it's evo, which can recieve some pretty harsh punishment and still dish out some damage, it couldn't take a hit to (if you'll pardon the expression) save it's life. And it had a craptacular set of moves. You know you're in trouble when half the time you have to use Will O' Wisp to do damage to the opponent. Evolution is a god-send to this poor little bugger.

    Also, Solosis? Duosion? Learn some god damn attacking moves already :P

    Okay, I'll admit this. The last few levels in the Choroneko stage are a pain in the arse.

    Teaching Thief to it helps though, as if you are lucky you'll steal a healing berry, use it, and then get a speed boost with Unburden.

    At Lepardas, it is much stronger than most things you can get at that stage. I got mine in Hiun and had no problems with it from then on.

    As soon as you get Fake Out, use it. Hone Claws is good as it makes Fury Swipes 100% accurate. Slash and Night Slash allow you critical hits.

    With all of that, I never had a problem.

    The first in-game pokemon I found worth the time to actually catch and raise was Blitzle.

    Up till that point, I didn't see much use of patrat or lillipup or purrloin or even munny.

    Omg i was just about to write Purrloin but I noticed everyone else had already said it. Damn.

    It's gotta be Pidove and Blitzle then, I am only on gym 5 and seriously considering swapping these 2 out.

    Unfezant is actually an ok pokemon with nice 105 base attack.
    As well as 93 base speed.

    Damn it, you guys, I like Purrloin >.> Mine saved my arse from a succession of Sigilyph that decimated the rest of my team, and thus ousted Zoroark and Mandibuzz to become my obligatory Dark-type.

    I will agree that its early moveset could use some tweaking, since it takes a while for it to learn a STAB attack. Assist is a slightly iffy move when the rest of your team are Level 15 with moves like Tail Whip.

    Unfezant is a pretty decent bird Pokemon actually. Raising a Pidove is worth it.

    Purrloin and Liepard are pretty hard in the lower levels though, I must agree.
    Ultimately, I serve only one master... pure logic.
