Venusaur has the same amount of weaknesses as "strengths". The other 2 have better ratios.

Charizard also has the best stats (534 vs 530 vs 525) while Venusaur has the worst.

You lucky bastard lol. Pikachu being your first enconter in Viridian Forest. I iz jealous. BUT MY NIDOKING RAPES YOUR WHOLE TEAM, ALL AT THE SAME TIME, CAUS HE'S NIDOKING AND THAT'S HOW NIDOKING ROLL SO IT'S K.

I used to pick Charizard every game back when I was kid with my gameboy advance. But last weekend when I was at my bro's place (read intro), I saw a picture that made mewant to play Bulbaur for the first time. And I admit, Canoas is right on this one. Venusaur's da ****.

Spoiler: Click to view


We were, of course, completely sober when we decided to download pokemon.

+rep me and you'll get good karma, wich means you won't be reincarnated into a rock! Isn't that awesome?

But yes this idea has been discussed more than Pam Anderson's tits in a plastic surgeons office.

So, I played for a few hours.

I might have caught too many pokemon though.

I caught one for every like section...

For example, I just got onto the S.S. Anne, and I have like 9 pokemon.

Fred the meowth, Steve the Ivysaur, Sandra the Raticate, Shauna the Fearow, Greg the Butterfree, John the Oddish, Dani the Pidgey, George the Geodude, and Ken the mankey.
Tri lane for life.

EV training is just another way of maximizing which stats you would rather have on which pokemon. I used to do it the old fashioned way that took like 10 hours to make one pokemon ...

If I helped you, click that +rep!

Venusaur has the same amount of weaknesses as "strengths". The other 2 have better ratios.

Charizard also has the best stats (534 vs 530 vs 525) while Venusaur has the worst.

yet you fail to take into account that pretty much every pokemon will have a rock, water or electric move. four out of five of charizard's resistance are rarely used. there are very few fighting, bug, steel and fire abilities used competitively, so he really only has 2 resistances: ground and grass. They're pretty common, specially ground, but still not enough to make up for the 3 weaknesses that pretty much every pokemon uses, specially when he gets 1 hit KO by rock.
So, what does charizard have to counter his weaknesses? he can't use lightning since Gen.1 so there's no way to counter water types. He can counter electric with earthquake, but electric attacks will bemade by non-electric pokemon like starmie or electric pokemon who are faster than Charizard, he has no way of attacking first. How will he fight rock? His steel and fighting moves are physical so he won't deal much dmg with them. He has absolutely no counters whatsoever.
Either way what position will he have on your team? Special Sweeper? Sorry, but an Alakazam, for example, would be sooooooo much better than Charizard as a special sweeper. He's squishy as well but at least Alakazam has the speed and sp. attack to make up for it. Charizard is just not fast enough, he won't get the first attack.


Like any other pokemon, Charizard is fine for "solo" play. No trainer will be a match for your lvl 100 pokemons. However, if you try to play against someone who knows what he's doing then a charizard is pretty much the same as a empty slot in your team. He is subpar no matter how you look at it.

canoas this is a thread for the Nuzlocke challenge not a thread for professional pokemon play if you wanna talk about professional pokemon you should make a thread about that instead of derailing this one :D
