Reeve Girafarig.
# 203.
Type: Normal / Psychic.
Ability: Inner focus / Early bird.
Locations: Route 214, Lake Valor.

Hi everyone. Welcome to another Pokémon of the Week. Today we’re reviewing Girafarig, the long neck Pokémon.

Girafarig has a good special attack and decent speed. It is also able to learn baton pass. Unfortunately you are not going to use this over other baton passers such as Umbreon or Ninjask because it has terrible defenses. It has a decent attack stat too but I think special sweeper is going to be better this time.

It has decent but not great abilities. I like early bird, as flinching is not as popular as it used to be.

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

Nature: Modest (+ Special attack, - Attack).
Equip: Petaya berry.
EV´s: 252 Special attack, 252 Speed, 6 HP.
- Thunderwave
- Grass knot
- Psychic
- Calm mind

Very simple; use thunderwave and hope for the best. Use calm mind as much as you can and sweep. If you are lucky enough to paralyze your opponent for a couple turns or force a non-lethal switching, you will have a decent amount of special attack and special defense.

Nature: Bold (+ Defense, - Attack),.
Equip: Petaya berry.
EV´s: 252 HP, 129 Defense, 129 Special defense.
- Baton pass
- Agility
- Psychic
- Calm mind

This is the classic speed baton passer. Be very careful. Use it early in battle and if you are lucky enough to face something that’s weak against Girafarig, then you are going to have a couple turns to use agility and then baton pass. I don’t think you will be able to do this twice in a battle.

When should I use this Pokémon?
Underused battles are becoming a fun way to battle. Use it with your friends, in a casual environment. This is not for tournament purposes.

What should I use against this Pokémon?
Forretress and Blissey work perfect. Being a special sweeper and with little attack options (only 2 offensive moves using our set) it is pretty easy to avoid or block.

Bottom line:
I like its style and the shiny one looks pretty good to me. Non-evolving Pokémon as Lapras are good enough. Unfortunately Girafarig isn’t that good.


Hope you enjoyed.
Carbunkle I don't even wanna go in what this looks like and how they came up with it.

Name: Girafarig
Ability: Inner Focus/Early Bird
Type: Normal/Psychic
Nature: Mild (+S.Atk, -Def)
Item: Life Orb
EV's: 252 S.Atk, 252 Atk (Speed)

Abilities this time is up to you. Either make it immune to flinching with
Inner Focus or combine Rest with Early Bird because it sleeps only half the
time needed.
Nature to get the S.Atk. up.
Life Orb to make some extra damage.
Weakness are Bug and Dark. Immune to ghost and resistance to Psychic, looks

1) Calm Mind
2) Psychic
3) Double Kick
4) Rest/Protect

Calm Mind to Raise Sp.stats.
Psychic is a good Psychic attack and being a STAB to.
Double Kick for the Dark problem.
Rest ONLY if you have Early Bird, else stick with Protect.

To be honest, this one was the hardest to make.
This one sucks, if you want to have fun, go ahead, else I say to use Pichu
instead of this one.


Elite 4 beaten and have been starting to send over my pokemons from emerald.
Anyone got a Munchlax? I can trade over a Feebas with right Nature or other
things I have.
Contact on Espeon3@hotmail.com
And I have had troubles with my forum account, doesn't get my confirmation
mail so I can't activate.
