Reeve Magneton
# 082.
Type: Electric/Steel.
Ability: Magnet pull/Sturdy.
Locations: New Mauville (Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald), Cerulean Cave (FireRed, LeafGreen), Snag from Cipher Peon Snidle (XD).

Hi everyone. Welcome to another Pokémon of the Week. Today we’re reviewing a very helpful Pokémon; Magneton.

Skarmory’s perfect nightmare. This one is absolutely necessary if you want to beat the metallic bird. Nice special attack and defense. So you will have a decent Special sweeper in Magneton. It is not so fast, but will sweep a good number of turns.

Magneton has two abilities, but the truth is no one uses sturdy, Magnet pull is the blessing on this Pokémon and we’re taking advantage of that.

Now, we have the standard anti-Skarmory/Sweeper combination; remember to use MAGNET PULL on this one:

Nature: Modest (+ Special attack, -Attack).
Equip: Leftovers.
EV´s: 129 Defense, 129 Special attack, 129 Special defense.
- Thunderbolt
- HP fire
- Toxic
- Metal sound

This one is pretty simple. Thunderbolt will take out Skarmory in one turn. HP fire is for some other steel Pokémon (but grass might do OK against Swampert). Toxic and metal sound just for some extra help. If you don’t like metal sound try something like Substitute.

When should I use this Pokémon?
Skarmory again. Also good against not so fast water Pokémon.

What should I use against this Pokémon?
Probably another Magneton would be interesting. But without a doubt your best choice is Dugtrio (remember the sand trap). Maybe Steelix. It is week against Ground types so pick a fast and strong one and you’ll be ok.

Bottom line:
Very useful as I said before, but it is also good in more general situations.


Hope you enjoyed.
