Hello, I'm back! Sorry for my long hiatus; I had schoolwork,
writing, and other personal matters to attend to. Now that I'm
on summer vacation, I'll have more time to reviews.
Some people that use Feraligatr in standard play as opposed to
UU play remind me of people on the Yu-Gi-Oh! Japanese cards
forums. The people on the Japanese forums believe that they're
"unique" and "cool" for making "original" Decks while bashing
English Yu-Gi-Oh! players for running "cookie cutters". Some
people that use Feraligatr in standard play believe that they're
unique and bash people for running standards like Metagross
while they're just nubs that aren't like the people on the
Japanese forums. Just wanted to get back at the uppity Japanese
players (coughcoughTobiasXDuzellSpikeBaroncoughcough). =)
Anyway, Feraligatr is a decent UU. No more crappy 252/129/129 EV
The basic UU sweeper; outclassed by other sweepers like Gligar,
but I guess it's OK. Swords Dance away, and go crazy with
Earthquake and Rock Slide.
Hydro Pump 2HKOs Gligar and OHKOs Pokemon like Golem in UU and
puts a dent in Skarmory and Weezing in standard play when they
try to wall your physical attacks.
A sad attempt at a special sweeper; the poor thing can't even
reach 300 Special Attack. Focus Punch OHKOs Tyranitar and 2HKOs
Blissey and Laxen.
Roar is if you desperately need a phazer; Rest can go over it if
you really want, but since UU is offensive, don't expect it to
survive the Rest.
Other Options: Nothing good
Counters: Zapdos, Blissey, Regice, and Snorlax for special
sweeping set, Ludicolo, Jolteon, Raikou
Feraligatr is an OK physical sweeper and a mediocre special
sweeper. Like its counterpart Blastoise, it tries to be a jack
of all trades and kinda fails. It's easily the coolest of the
GSC starters (Typhlosion what?), so use it for novelty if
Hey Pojo Readers! My names Bubby and I will be reviewing the GBA
pokemon of the week from now on. I will try my best to do a
review every week but I'm not guaranteed because i am in the
process of moving :/. Anyway Here is my review of Feraligatr:
Ok, Feraligatr is an all water-type pokemon so its main
weaknesses include only electric basically. Feraligatr's stats
are almost the same except for its Attack. Feraligatr is
definately an attacking pokemon. If your using a Feraligatr, I
suggest backing it up with a pokemon high on Spec. Atk., Spec.
Def., etc. Lets look at a pretty well-balanced Feraligatr:
Feraligatr Holding Dire Hit
I think this Feraligatr is tough to survive against because of
its strong attack power supported by its Spec. Def support.
Although Feraligatr beats out Meganium in my opinion, I think
Typhlosion is the best choice.
Hi everyone. Today we’re reviewing a starter. The second
generation water starter; Feraligatr.
Ok. This one hasn’t a very good special attack. So, say good bye
to hydro pump, ice beam and stuff like that. You won’t make a
standard water special attacker with Feraligatr. Feraligatr
hasn’t a very good speed either, so let’s focus on its great
attack and powerful defense.
Its ability is the same as the other water starters. With
torrent water type attacks will be stronger, but for my review,
it is worthless.
Now, for the move combination, we will use swords dance because
Feraligatr can survive a couple turns before attacking…
So, it is simple. Swords dance until you’re ready. If Salac
activates is great, if not just sweep. If you’re facing a lot of
flying type opponents. Then switch Earthquake for Rock slide. If
you don’t like Aerial ace, try Return.
When should I use this Pokémon?
It is a solid attacker. Works well if baton passed (for extra
speed, Ninjask anyone?) and as long as you don’t face a strong
electric or grass type special attacker, you’ll be fine.
What should I use against this Pokémon?
Electrode or Jolteon will do great. They’re both fast and
strong. Sceptile also works well. Just be careful with grass
types, because of Aerial ace.
It’s ok. Not so bad, but not so good as well. It is just… A
Hope you enjoyed.
Sorry for not reviewing Nidoking an dtYranitar. I've been busy
on the Yu-Gi-Oh!
site, and just got out of school, so I'm gonna get these reviews
in from now on.
So, Feraligatr is one of my least and favorite pokemon. When I
was playing Gold version, I fought Pryce(the ice gym leader)
with a Level 82 Feraligatr, an dwon easily. I had trained it up
so much, but then I accidentley turned off the game while I was
saving. Bye-bye Feraligatr! Well, anyway, Feraligatr is one of
the better water pokemon, because of the variety of moves and
the great stats.
Feraligatr learns less water moves than all the other types of
attacks he has. This is actually an advantage, because
Feraligatr's attack is by far his best stat. The hardest part
for me with Feraligatr is utilizing Defensive moves. I usually
use TM's for defense moves but Feraligatr is a pokemon meant for
attack, not defense. You can usually get by with only one
Defense move in the moveset, but if you want to play real
defensive, make sure you have Surf on him. Or another good,
solid water type attack.
Total Score: 8/10
You guys kepp on rollin'
