Pokemon of the Week


Delibird & Stantler

Date Reviewed: 12.21.07

Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale.
1 being the worst.  3 ... average.  5 is the highest rating.


Hi everyone. Welcome to our Christmas Special Pokémon of the Week. Today we’re reviewing two very special guys this season; the Christmas duo Delibird the Delivery Pokémon and Stantler the Big horn Pokémon.



# 225.

Type: Ice / Flying.

Ability: Vital spirit / Hustle.

Locations: Icefall cave (Firered), snag from Cipher peon Arton (Colosseum), swarm in route 216 (Diamond, Pearl).


Unfortunately, Delibird has horrible stats, being the worse its defenses and attack. It learns one unique attack which is Present, a luck move that either damages or restores your foe. Its type combination isn’t that awesome either, but hey, it’s almost Christmas isn’t it?


With vital spirit you are immune to sleep condition, and Hustle lets you increase your attack but decreases your speed, which isn’t a very big issue on this Pokémon.


Let’s move on to the move combinations, let’s see what’s up with this guy…



Nature: Jolly (+ Speed, - Special attack).

Equip: Leftovers.

EV´s: 252 HP, 252 Speed, 6 Defense.

- Toxic

- Hail

- Protect

- Substitute



Nature: Jolly (+ Speed, - Special attack).

Equip: Life orb.

EV´s: 252 Attack, 252 Speed, 6 HP.

- Aerial ace

- Ice shard

- Ice punch

- Brick break


This thing may be a sweeper somehow and this is the best thing you can do with it. A lot easier to use as it is just sweeping…


When should I use this Pokémon?

Use it when battling with your cousins this Christmas eve. It is fun to share with the ones you love and it is way better if you can battle them this season… I wouldn’t suggest you to use this competitively.


What should I use against this Pokémon?

A strong rock slide will be deadly; almost any good rock type move will do it. Fire types are good too






# 234.

Type: Normal.

Ability: Intimidate / Frisk.

Locations: Zafari Zone, Altering cave (Emerald), Altering cave (Firered, leafgreen), Snag from Chaser Liaks (Colosseum), Route 207 (Pearl)


Having no evolution and being a normal type makes Stantler a pretty underused Pokémon. It is not that bad but it doesn’t have a very good move pool and its defenses are very weak. The best thing you can do with Stantler is sweep, so it is better if you baton pass some stats first.


Let’s move on to the move combinations, let’s see what’s up with this guy…



Nature: Adamant (+ Attack, - Special attack).

Equip: Liechi berry.

EV´s: 252 Attack, 252 HP, 6 Speed.

- Zen headbutt

- Thunder wave / Hypnosis

- Return / Me first

- Earthquake


 Paralyze or hypnotize your foe, it{s up to you. Then just sweep with all you’ve got. If you are battling faster Pokémon use Me first, if not Return will be ok.


When should I use this Pokémon?

Tag team with Stantler? Well, it{s not the best Pokémon ever, but show your friends it’s not about the Pokémon but the trainer…


What should I use against this Pokémon?

Burning or poisoning Stantler will either kill it or force a switch, either way it is very effective, Seismic toss or any fighting type move will do pretty well.





Bottom line:

I hope you enjoyed this as much as you will enjoy Christmas in just a few days. Remember to eat a lot, have a blast with you family and friends and prepare for our last Pokémon of the week of the year, next week…


If you have some questions about any game or specific strategy feel free to write to reeve@pojo.com if you find that you can’t write to that address because of some issues, then try reeve.ryu@gmail.com I’ll be glad to help, trade or battle you…


Hope you enjoyed.
