There were many things introduced in gen V that most people overlook or use only to a fraction oftheir potential. If you agree, disagree, have ideas of you own or like my Ideas feel free to comment. Now without further ado here are some of the most underappreciated 5th gen additions:
Yup, that's right, the speedy little ninja-esque bug thing. Although fast many people fail to notace what else the little bug has going for it.
I hate it when the awesome little bugger is used as type coverage. Sure he's a bug type that can use focus blast and final gambit, so WHAT? That is a waste of some crazy power.
For example, in rain, not only can it outspeed nearly anything without swift swim but it's abiity "Hydration" allows it to go without paralysis slowing it down. put it in a single battle and it can kill anything holding a life orb (poison or burn also works here)
eg: protect, substitute, protect, substitute, protect, substitute, protect, substitute, protect, rest, (focus sash) , bug buzz.
The life orb, recoil or status will have cut hp drasticly in those turns then bug buzz will finish foe off. If accelgor survives and focus sash isn't activated then that's even better.
"What is round?" you ask, well it's that useless base 60 power TM, you never bothered to get at the battle subway. Big mistake.
At 60 base power round doesn't look like mutch, and it's not. BUT when you throw 2 good pokemon (namely accelgor and porygon-Z) into the mix; then you have a supersonic cannon able to take down a focus sash arceus before it can even say "swords dance".
As I mentioned before base 60 power isn't antyhing to get excited about. It's the secondary effect of this move, that makes it all-the more powerful. When round is used, any allied pokemon (porygon-Z) that are also using it will use it immidiatly after the first/fastest (accelgor) but not only that, after the first use the base power is doubled for the second user.
What? still not happy with 100% accuracy 120 base power, well... Porygon-Z has CRAZY sp.atk and the ability "Adaptability" which doubles the power of normal type moves. ...Still not enough? Well if you give porygon-z choice specs you get another power boost, along with the fact Accelgor can probably oustpeed anything on the field, you have yourself some unnatural power.
This guy is a pretty nice pokemon, with power and defence equal to pseudo-legendary metagross and a nice ability to support it's bulk.
It's great number of weaknesses is offset by it's lack of double weanesses. It's lack of speed is also offset by it's ability.
Razor claw stone edge can rip right through any flying type and more, choice band earthquake can annhialate anything else. in single this guy is literally the bomb with a powerful "explosion" and an ability to stop any attempts to kill him before he can explode.
