Its not that it is ugly..i mean its a fox priestess which is cool enough for me but i just hate her battle stance. She just stands straight up and face completely forward. They should have made her levitate or something
<--if she had this stance i would have fell in love but sadly no. But i cant say she's ugly. I like her

There's only one video game fandom faster at churning out the porn than the Pokemon fandom, and that's Touhou's fandom. There's probably hentai of Braixen on Pixiv right now.

Another good use is bringing your health low enough and safely to a berry of yours (salac, liechi, etc) activate, or high base power Reversal, of just for the sake of using Destiny Bond effectively.

Turn 1 - Opponent uses a move like Swords Dance
You switch pokemon

Turn 2 - Your opponent uses substitute
you use toxic

Basically, you would need two hits to break it. There are many situations where a substitute is amazing. Essentially, you just need a turn where you won't get hit or resist partially the hit.

By using a multi-hit, one breaks the substitute, the others knocks the pokemon out

Focus sash is a item that will make your pokemon survive a hit from full hp, having 1hp remaining. Multi-hits count separatedly, so Focus Sash never stops the pokemon from fainting from an attack from suck moves.

That's why each pokemon has to have a wide range of types for attack, I mean for example say the person does switch out to something super effective against you then you should have a move that may be able to combat it, you need to be able to predict, won't always work, but the loop you were concerned about isn't infinite

You gotta hate me for this, but we kinda have this "policy" of avoid taking super-effective damage in most cases. As seen, it can achieve some wins.

You should see replays in Pokemon Showdown (google it). We always regret affording taking a super-effective damage.

but then the constantly switching gets old, thats kinda why in pvp, i'd like a lot of moves to be nerfed so a battle can last longer but that the moves still do noticeable damage difference depending on the affectability. Also they need to make a rule where switching inbetween battles doesnt happen so that whatever pokemon you send out is there until it faints, and that you can't pick which pokemon you send out next, you have to order your pokemon before a battle to be sent out in. I think that if we use that then pvp would be a lot more fun in my opinion. rant over

Set it up on something you can threaten and force the opponent to switch on the turn you sub up. doesn't work on lower levels (skill wise) because ppl who suck do not know how to switch.

Also its last evolution is water/dark. Can learn rapid spin and spikes for competitive battles and because of its dark typing ghost Pokemon cannot be switched in to spin block or they'll get ******! It'll definitely be OU.

Your math is off, since stab gives 50% extra, the damage would be 45-112,5, which is quite bad. Every greninja i encountered in random online battles starts with this move, but it has never been strong enough to one hit KO a normal sweeper of mine. After that its just thunderbolt and greninja's toast. Also its terrible against lucario, which everyone uses. So all the new starters are pretty meh...

To me, The Froakie line is the only one that is acceptable. Chespin is just a rat in a hood and Fennekin is just another damn fire hound to join the likes of Vulpix, Growlithe, Houndour, etc. Theres nothing wrong with the design. I just like a little originality. Like a mother ******* ninja frog!

I won't argue that the final forms aren't creative because they certainly are. I just don't like Delphox and Chesnaught.

Chesnaught is pretty much outclassed by Breloom and It doesn't even look like a grass pokemon. It does look cool but it just doesn't work in the Chespin like for me.

Delphox just rubs me the wrong way. I honestly can't look past the big tufts of fur coming out of it's ears Although I am sure other people have said the same for Greninja's tongue scarf. I also can't look past the fact that I know Delphox is going to join Gardevoir and Lopunny in the ranks of Rule34... Pic very relevant..

I happen to like Chesnaught. If you ask any of my online friends, they'd tell you I always haft to play the bigass tank character. Karok with full Plate from Vindictus, any top lane bruiser on League of Legends, those weird golem guys outfitted with a Lance from Terra online, ect. Chesnaught just fit my way of playing. (also helps that my Chesnaught's personality stats, or whatever it's called, trades speed with defence making him one hell of a tank)
