1 being the worst.  3 ... average.  5 is the highest rating.

Brown Bomber 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 spreads, people!

Feraligatr (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Torrent
EVs: 232 HP / 216 Atk / 20 Spd / 40 SAtk Brave Nature (+Atk, -Spd)
- Swords Dance
- Hydro Pump
- Rock Slide
- Earthquake

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.

Feraligatr (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Torrent
EVs: 168 HP / 32 Atk / 56 Spd / 252 SAtk Quiet Nature (+SAtk, -Spd)
- Ice Beam
- Hydro Pump
- Focus Punch
- Roar/Rest

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 nothing else.

Peace Out,
Brown Bomber
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:

Weight-196 lbs

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
-Light Screen

+Spec. Def

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.

Overall I give Feraligatr a 3.5/5

Peace -ShepDaGreat
Reeve Feraligatr.
# 160.
Type: Water.
Ability: Torrent.
Locations: Evolve Croconaw (Emerald, Colosseum, XD).

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…

Nature: Jolly (+ Speed, -Special Attack).
Equip: Salac berry.
EV´s: 252 Attack, 252 Speed, 6 HP.
- Swords dance
- Return
- Earthquake
- Aerial ace

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.

Bottom line:
It’s ok. Not so bad, but not so good as well. It is just… A starter.


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'
