Hi everyone. Welcome to another Pokémon of the Week. Today we’re reviewing the Pokémon nightmare. Wobbuffet: the banned Pokémon.

Today, most tournaments have the “Wobbuffet clause”. What’s that? Well. This rule says no Wobbuffet is allowed because if two Wobbuffets fight. The battle is going to last forever. I’ve seen that and it is boring and frustrating. So that’s why you won’t see this fellow.

Wobbuffet is powerful and useful. It is also frustrating for your opponent (and you’ll know why when you see the move combination if you don’t already know it). I don’t how this Pokémon was created, but it was a good idea.

It has a tremendous amount of HP and its ability is great. Preventing your opponent from switching also gives you some time to pull out the strategy…

And what strategy?! Well, read and cry…

Nature: Bold (+ Defense, - Attack).
Equip: Leftovers.
EV´s: 252 HP, 129 Defense, 129 Special Defense.
- Counter
- Mirror coat
- Encore
- Charm

Now you know why it’s banned. Well, you don’t have any offensive attack. You just use Encore and counter or mirror coat depending on the situation. Charm just for extraordinary cases…

When should I use this Pokémon?
I have never used it before and probably you will never do it in tournaments. But if you have a casual battle and your opponent agrees. Use it, it is invincible if you know how to make it effective.

What should I use against this Pokémon?
Another Wobbuffet? Don’t even think about it… If you got to beat Wobbuffet you’ll probably sacrifice two or maybe three Pokémon. First use something to take out those Leftovers, then a “surprise Pokémon”, something that seems like a special sweeper, but attacking with earthquake or something. Maybe Salamence (because it is a good special and normal sweeper). Try to be fast and use the surprise factor.

Bottom line:
If you’re going to train and use one. Catch a Wynaut and evolve it. It is better because of the “charm” thing… Also if you use it, prepare for a long, long battle…

3.5/5 (if not banned)

Hope you enjoyed.
