Pokédex Data:

It shatters ice with its big tusks. Its thick blubber repels not only the cold, but also enemy attacks.

 

This one is for one of our readers; Jon Hopp. I’m working on your mail bro, hang on some hours, I’ll have your request ready this weekend. Meanwhile here is part of it with the review of Walrein.

 

Walrein is a pretty tough Pokémon. It is the classical slow but strong type with an interesting ice touch. Ibe bosy is a fantastic ability if you are going to use hail or have Abomasnow on your team.

 

The movesets for today are…

 

Curse set.
Walrein@Lum berry.
Nature: Adamant (+ Attack, - Special attack), Brave (+ Attack, - Speed).
EV’s: 252 Attack / 129 Defense / 129 Special defense.
- Curse
- Rest
- Avalanche
- Waterfall / Earthquake

 

Avalanche is a great move for this set as it will gain more power thanks to curse. The last move is up to your needs. If you don’t like rest I’d suggest Yawn to force a switch.

 

Sleep talker.
Walrein@Leftovers.
Nature: Bold (+ Defense, - Attack), Impish (+ Defense, - Special attack).
EV’s: 252 HP / 252 Defense / 6 Special defense.
- Sleep talk
- Rest
- Avalanche
- Waterfall / Earthquake

 

I’m not really into this set but some have said it is good, so I trust them. Having good defenses will give you time to attack, rest and sleep talk. Repeat until you beat your opponent.

 

Walrein is also capable of using some other strategic moves as substitute, toxic, protect and roar. Feel free to add them to any moveset and use it whenever you feel like its necessary. Forcing switches is a powerful move with high defense Pokémon as Walrein.

 

Pros.

A hail team is awesome for this one. But if you are going to use it individually then curse is your best bet. Rest is a cool move not only to regain HP but to get rid of burn, poison or paralysis status.

 

Counters.

A well trained Tyranitar with brick break and rock slide will beat Walrein easily. Metagross will be another big counter. Be aware of fighting and rock moves.

 

Bottom line.

Finally we finish this third Pokémon of this week. Next week it’s all back on track, so take care and expect your mails to be replied soon.

 

Rating:

2.3/5

 

Hope you enjoyed.

Reeve.
