Hi everyone. Welcome to another Pokémon of the Week. Today we’re
reviewing Jynx, the human shape Pokémon.
I just faced one today, I got to say I didn’t see that coming

more time to predict a switch or just try to sweep as long as
you can… You can use substitute instead of lovely kiss to earn
some more time.
When should I use this Pokémon?
You really don’t want to use this Pokémon, but if you fight for
fun then give it a shot as your first Pokémon, with the ability
to “read” your opponent’s moves you can predict strategies.
What should I use against this Pokémon?
Nowadays fire punch Electivire is a popular physical sweeper.
Tyranitar, Metagross and Aerodactyl will work great.
Why didn’t we get a new evolution of this one? This lady really

Abilities here are strange for me. Oblivious negates Attracting
which is good but Forewarn lets you see the opponents attack

Over and Out
Type:Ice and Psychic
Well this poke just always has looked weird >.> Anyways having
stab for ice and psychic attacks is pretty nice and forewarn
lets you see your opponents attacks which I love (haven’t seen

Item: Choice Scarf
Perish Song/ Shadow Ball
I usually don’t like hit and run pokez but this one is ok.

what you do with this weird looking pokemon but just remember
that it has horrible defense so a focus sash on her would be a
