Hey welcome to the second pokimon of the week, I would like everyone to take a look at wailord he's a very good pokemon. Comments on this pokemon a huge pokemon pure water, a good addition to any pokemon most favorite move is waterspout.

Groudon's Pokedex observation.

In pokimon ruby and sapphire you can only get Wailord by catching a wailmer onroute 20-30 I think. Wailmer evolves into wailord at level 40. And Key note wailord is needed to unlock the regi's.

#100 Wailord
Type: Water
Wailmer-Wailord

Wailord is a medium pokemon. Wailord has excellent HP and it has medium stats in everything else.

Wailord in my oppinion is a waste of time it has less than desirable speed and both defenses are just despicable plus it has bad speed so it wont survive a thunder.
My rating:1.5/5
ruby:1
sapphire:1
fire red:1
leaf green:1
emerald 2 (only because of the battle frontier)
 
Brown Bomber Waillord is the definition of mediocrity. It is outclassed by Suicune, Swampert, and Milotic in standard play, while it is inferior to Quagsire, Slowbro, and Slowking in underused play. Wailord should only be used to get the Regis in Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald or on a never used team with equally mediocre Pokemon.

Wailord (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Water Veil
EVs: 128 HP / 28 Atk / 100 SAtk / 252 SDef Brave Nature (+Atk, -Spd)
- Curse
- Earthquake
- Ice Beam
- Rest

The most effecitve Wailord set. Curse to boost Wailord's decent base 90 Attack and pathetic base 45 Defense, and Ice Beam Salamence if it comes in. Since Wailord will Curse to boost its Defense, max out its Special Defense so that it can withstand a few Special Attacks. 241 Special Attack allows for an OHKO on Salamence on average, while the leftover EVs are spread to boost Wailord's Attack and massive HP. 513 HP is 1 more HP than a multiple of 16, allowing maximum Leftovers recovery and the ability to switch into three layers of Spikes four times and take eight turns. of poison, burn, or Leech Seed damage. Wailord doesn't

need Speed, since its Speed will be decreased by Curse.

Wailord (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Water Veil
EVs: 128 HP / 252 Def / 28 Spd / 100 SAtk Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Surf
- Ice Beam
- Toxic
- Substitute

A pathetic attempt at the standard Surf/Ice Beam bulky water set.
Unfortunately,
Wailord is nowhere near as durable as the typical bulky waters Suicune and Milotic.
This set can act as a mediocre Skarmbliss "counter"; when Blissey switches in, poison it with Toxic. Afterwards, use Substitute; Wailord will get a free Sub, since Blissey will switch to heal itself with Natural Cure, use Aromatherapy to clear all status effects, or use Seismic Toss. Since Wailord makes over 100 HP Substitutes, its Sub won't be broken by a Seismic Toss. Afterwards, if Blissey stays in, keep using Toxic until it runs out of PP for Aromatherapy. Blissey can switch to get rid ofthe poison with Natural Cure; however, you'll have wasted Aromatherapy's PP and forced Blissey out. This works best with Spikes on your opponent's field, so that you can damage the Pokemon that comes in when Blissey switches out.
Unfortunately, Surf is a 3HKO on Skarmory, allowing the metal bird to lay Spikes and run away before Surf kills it or to blow away Wailord's Substitute with Roar/Whirlwind.
Wailord has maxed out Defense so that it can take physical attacks such as Hidden Power Flying and Earthquake from physical sweepers and wreak havoc with Surf and Ice Beam. 241 Special Attack allows for an average OHKO on Salamence with Ice Beam, 28 Speed for Pokemon that try to outrun Weezing and Tyraniboah (a Tyranitar with Crunch/Thunderbolt/Substitute/Focus Punch), and the rest is in HP for 1 more HP than a multiple of 16.

Wailord (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Water Veil
EVs: 128 HP / 252 Def / 28 Spd / 100 SAtk Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Ice Beam
- Fissure
- Rest
- Sleep Talk

Don't use this set, as OHKOs are banned in competitive play. Keep using Fissure and pray that you'll kill an opposing Pokemon. Ice Beam is for Flying Pokemon and Sturdy Pokemon that resist Sheer Cold; since most Sturdy Pokemon don't resist Ice Beam, Ice Beam quickly kills them. If Wailord is weakened or runs low on PP for Fissure, use Rest and keep going for crapshoots with Sheer Cold. The EVs are the same as above; if you're going for OHKOs, you'll need a lot of Defense so that Wailord can survive and keep trying to kill the opposing Pokemon.

With terrible defenses, a barren movepool, and a myriad of other Water Pokemon to choose from, Wailord is pathetic. It is one of the filler Pokemon shoved into Ruby/Sapphire whose sole purpose is to obtain three legendaries that are actually usable. After you obtain the Regis, leave Wailord to rot in your PC. Please don't use Wailord in standard play.

RSEFRLG Rating: 1.5

Peace Out,
Brown Bomber
