Ambipom.

Japanese name: エテボース, (Etebossu).

# 424.

Long Tail Pokémon.

Type: Normal.

Ability:

Pickup: There is a 10% chance this Pokémon will have an item at the end of a battle.

Technician: Moves with base power of 60 or less will raise its power another 50%

Height: 3’11’’.

Weight: 44.8 lbs.

Locations: Evolve Aipom (Diamond / Pearl / Platinum).

 

Base stats:

            HP: 75

            Attack: 100

            Defense: 66

            Special attack: 60

            Special defense: 66

            Speed: 115

 

Pokédex Data:

They work in large colonies and make rings by linking their tails, apparently in friendship. To eat, it deftly shucks nuts with its two tails. It rarely uses its arms now.

 

Ambipom is actually pretty good; it is a pretty good physical sweeper capable of using powerful moves like last resort. Its speed is also very good. So you’ll have to hit fast with this one, because its defenses are pretty bad. I’ll obviously suggest you to use technician as you ability.

 

The movesets for today are…

 

Physical sweeper.
Ambipom@Choice band / Focus sash.
Nature: Jolly (+ Speed, - Special attack).
EV’s: 252 Attack / 252 Speed / 6 HP.
- Return
- Brick break
- Shadow claw / Agility
- Aerial ace / Fake out / U-turn

 

If you are going to use this as a choice bander then forget about agility and fake out. If you are not then pick your moves and start sweeping.

 

Baton passer.
Ambipom@Leftovers.
Nature: Timid (+ Speed, - Attack).
EV’s: 252 HP / 252 Speed / 6 Attack.
- Swift
- Substitute / HP water
- Nasty plot
- Baton pass

 

Probably one of the best sets out there. It is a very good baton passer. If you are going for an original team, this might be your choice.

 

Last resort.
Ambipom@Life orb / Focus sash.
Nature: Adamant (+ Attack, - Special attack), Jolly (+ Speed, - Special attack).
EV’s: 252 Attack / 252 Speed / 6 HP.
- Fake out / Agility
- Last resort

I’d say fake out is better. Then just sweep as hard and much as you can. This set hurts a lot, but it is also the most predictable one, so be careful.

 

Pros.

It is a pretty good and underestimated Pokémon. I have trained a couple and both have been fun and effective. You should definitely give it a try.

 

Counters.

Fast Pokémon as Jolteon or Dugtrio are very bad for Ambipom. Strong physical defenses as Skarmory or steel types will stop it quite easily.

 

Bottom line.

Remember we’ll have 3 Pokémon this week. I’m catching up with all of you so please be patient, Im answering your e-mails as soon as I can =)

 

Rating:

2.4/5

 

Hope you enjoyed.

Reeve.
