    Oh, and Lickilicky.
    I agree with both of these, especially Farfetch'd!


    I would like Beedrill to be better, because he looks totally cool and looks like he should be more powerful. Alas, such is the problem with bug-types..... In fact, come to think of it, all Bug-types need an upgrade in strength!

    I dunno. There are bugs like Yanmega, Volcarona, Scizor, and Genesect that perform just fine. Not all of them need an upgrade (though quite a few of 'em would love to shed the Stealth Rock weakness).

    You forgot about Venomoth and Scolipede. In the lower tiers, they're pretty cool.

    Charizard (Give it Earth Power for crying out loud, and bring back Dragon Pulse with it)
    Raichu (He's the full evolved form of the series's mascot, so it needs to perform better with wider movepool or have the light ball work on him too)
    Magmortar (Perfect example of why evolutions shouldn't make them worse)
    Wigglytuff (Full evolved form of the secondary mascot of the series, it deserves a special item like the light ball)
    Farfetch'd (Evolution plz, with a fighting/flying dual typing)

    I'd like to see improvements on Dunsparce and Girafarig they have been the lowest of NUs, and can only be used by those that can predict really well.

    Golurk needs Stealth Rock, it work like a Metagross lead if it had it.

    No, it'll only do more harm than good for fire, ice, flying, and bug types who also need to improve.

    One more pokemon getting Stealth Rock wouldn't do that much damage. It's be the first spin blocker with Stealth Rock, but Starmie could still beat it.

    Charizard does get a nice DW ability, though.

    The only thing Dunsparce can really use is better stats. It has the perfect movepool to do its job in life, if it had more power and/or better defenses, we would see it a lot more. Dunsparce's BST is 415. I would raise it at the minumum to Clefable's level (473), something like:

    HP 100
    Atk 90
    Def 80
    SpA 60
    SpD 75
    Spe 68

    Girafarig has higher BST than Dunsparce, I just think that since his offensive stats are all good but not great, he struggles to find a niche. His typing is interesting, but it still doesn't have that many resists or immunities. If it had base 95+ speed, it'd probably be better off. If I adjusted it to 473 again, maybe something like:

    HP 70
    Atk 65
    Def 67
    SpA 101
    SpD 75
    Spe 95

    This makes it a specially based Pokemon only, so maybe that isn't what I should have done, but you still get the idea. It still isn't making any top 10 lists, but hey, it's an improvement without getting unreasonable with the BST.

    My vote is, of course, VILEPLUME. It is a terrible crime against Pokemon that a flowering plant can't use Leech Seed!

    He wouldn't last long though, you want to use Pokemon who's able to wipe out a single team, which is what the majority of Pokemon in OU are.

    Charizard requires a lot of support with Solar Power, but it is very powerful. I heard Fire Blast in the Sun (Assuming Specs) can 1HKO Blissey.

    Hence why I mentioned people wanting to use only Pokemon who can single handedly wipe out a team by itself because they don't need support to be good. Just look at Tyranitar and Scizor for example.

    In the fifth generation, neither Scizor nor Tyranitar will likely be sweeping teams by themselves. Scizor acts a utility check to specific threats and Tyranitar usually takes on a supporting role in most sandstorm teams.

    I don't think you can fix that kind of la bel to any Pokémon, there's generally some sort of counter for any pokémon. Some are a bit overpowered, but not single handedly sweeping.

    Outside of Arceus in OU and I think even then it might want Stealth Rock support for Sturdy. Anyways, I think he meant more reliable, I've seen Scizor sweep more often than Charizard, (But I haven't seen Tyranitar sweep as much.)

    Much love to Zurr
