Ability: Water absorb.
Locations: Evolve Eevee.
Hi everyone. Welcome to another Pokémon of the Week. Today we’re
reviewing Vaporeon, the bubble jet Pokémon.
Vaporeon is very similar to Lapras, not as popular, but similar.
It has high HP and Special attack, unfortunately for us; it also
has a very bad defense and a limited move pool. This means it
has the natural talent of a special sweeper. But it is also good
as a baton passer.
Water absorb is quite good. You force switches with this so
that’s a good advantage, It might not be as strong as some other
water sweepers, but almost every one of them will be forced to
switch against this.
We’ve seen this is especially useful as a special sweeper and
passer, so let’s see…
Nature: Modest (+ Special attack, - Attack).
EV´s: 252 HP, 252 Special attack, 6 Defense.
- Ice beam
- HP electric
This one is kind of customizable. If you want this to last a
little bit longer try rest or wish instead of toxic. You can
also try HP grass instead of electric.
Nature: Bold (+ Defense, - Attack).
EV´s: 252 HP, 129 Defense, 129 Special defense.
- Acid armor
- Hydro pump
- Baton pass
This one is to pass defense, but if you want to recover some HP
of other Pokémon try wish. Remember the passer strategy…
When should I use this Pokémon?
I wouldn’t suggest this one as your sweeper, it is strong but
its not so high defenses are kind of a huge disadvantage. Use
the baton passer for defenses. Maybe that way another sweeper
will do a better job.
What should I use against this Pokémon?
Remember the defense? Well, use attackers. Fighting ones are
useful because they are not that weak against water or ice
attacks. Try Machamp.
Not my favorite Eon, but a decent one, got to admit it.
Hope you enjoyed.
