Hi everyone. Welcome to another Pokémon of the Week. Today we’re
reviewing the long tongue Pokémon; Lickitung.
Lickitung is a pretty bad Pokémon. It is a normal type obtained
by trading or snagging, its HP is the only average stat.
everything else is below average…
I have to admit it has useful abilities. I prefer own tempo as
the attract strategies aren’t that popular.
So, there are a couple strategies for this one but none of them
are very effective. You could make a substi-puncher or even a
belly drummer, but they are not enough. I’ll show you a
combination to make some time.
If you get hit you are dead. So use substitute, then thunder
wave and return to make some good damage. Shadow ball is for
ghosts. My suggestion is: Paralyze and switch. Use Lickitung as
your last Pokémon because it will die soon anyway. It is better
if you save thunder wave for later…
When should I use this Pokémon?
Never. If you really want to give it a try then don’t use it in
serious tournaments. It is an underused Pokémon and that’s
because it is bad, believe me.
What should I use against this Pokémon?
Even a good heal beller can take out the strategy. Anything with
brick break will defeat Lickitung.
Very bad… Let’s hope its evolution is somehow a little better.
Hope you enjoyed.

Yes welcome to this special week of Pokemon GBA of the week. To
start off my first review of my Pojo career, I want to say thank
you to wartortle23(former yugioh writer) for introducing me to
this wonderful site. Alright back to the review.
Lickitung has not always been my favorite pokemon. Its probably
one of the most vulgar pokemon in the game (next to Jynx). I
swear if some guy told me to train his Lickitung, I’d smack him
very hard. But hey let’s look at this pokemon in a more
optimistic point of view.
Licky here is your tank. His special defense and defense stats
are his strong point but his atk and def are a joke. If you want
something going for this guy, I suggest a staller Licky. Here’s
my number set for him
This one is plain and simple. Rest when necessary and Sleep Talk
when you do. Seismic toss will deal the decent damage while
Toxic just drains the life out of them. Licky here has a
weakness to fighting so adding on the extra defense will help.
Although its pretty slow, it should last at least survive 1 Sky
uppercut from Blazikien or a Breloom. Just don’t count on it
striking back. If you don’t like Leftovers, replace it with
Salac berry because most likely the 1 super effective attack
while take Licky to the red zone.
This next set is kinda not my way of going but if you want to
start sweeping with this guy, be my guest. This was inspired by
the Battle Factory pokemon and it is ok I suppose
Swagger the foe first. Then Psych Up and start sweeping with
appropriate moves. I only suggest this combo if you are facing
special sweepers not physical sweepers because sometimes the
opponent might be smart and have their sweepers hold Persim
berries or Lum berries. That’ll screw you over.
1.5/5 , I don’t like what they did with this pokemon at all. In
the show they made its first appearance look good but after
that, this pokemon became nothing more than pokedex fodder. At
least when Diamond/Pearl comes out, we can see if it becomes
worthy as Licky will have an evolution. Cool huh?
Well first review complete. I just hope we get cooler pokemon in
the future xD. So from Osaka, I bid you happy hunting.
HOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! (*pelvic thrusts*)
