Hi everyone. Welcome to another Pokémon of the Week. Today we’re reviewing Cresselia, the lunar Pokémon.

First of all, I have to say this one was a special request so your suggestions will be resumed next week, thanks for understanding. Legendary Pokémon have pretty high stats and Cresselia falls into this category as well. But its strong stats are actually HP, defense and special defense. So we have a potential tank, both normal and special… A legendary tank? That’s something to fear.

Unfortunately Levitate is not as good with this one as it is with Gengar, but it could be worse right?

So, the move combinations for today are…

Nature: Bold (+ Defense, - Attack), Calm (+Special defense, - Attack).
Equip: Leftovers.
EV´s: 252 HP, 129 Defense, 129 Special defense.
- Calm mind
- Reflect
- Substitute
- Psychic

Use reflect, calm mind and substitute at will. Start sweeping as soon as you feel you have boosted your stats enough. This set is especially good in double battles, as you might want to have a more offensive Pokémon taking care of business while Cresselia boosts its stats. Even when you can’t defeat your foes with this one, you will last dozens of turns.

Nature: Bold (+ Defense, - Attack), Calm (+Special defense, - Attack).
Equip: Leftovers.
EV´s: 252 HP, 129 Defense, 129 Special defense.
- Moonlight / Rest
- Charge beam
- Grass knot / Reflect
- Ice beam

This one is a little bit more offensive as you now count with something to defeat boosted dragons. This is maybe an even easier set than the one before.

Nature: Bold (+ Defense, - Attack), Calm (+Special defense, - Attack).
Equip: Leftovers.
EV´s: 252 HP, 129 Defense, 129 Special defense.
- Calm mind
- Rest / Moonlight
- Toxic / Thunderwave
- Psychic / Ice beam

Similar to the first set but this one also includes status conditions. Leftovers and rest guarantee this one will stay strong for many turns.

When should I use this Pokémon?
I’ve seen very well trained Cresselias being used the wrong way. Use this Pokémon with patience. If you choose to train and use this Pokémon competitively you will probably have very long battles so be patient, think every move and you shall have victory.

What should I use against this Pokémon?
I’ve seen fast substitute / leech seed users (also known as subseeders) as Sceptile are pretty good against Cresselia. Shadow ball will also take a considerable amount of HP but you will have to hit repeatedly. If you can’t defeat Cresselia you better force a switch, and Steel types are pretty good for the job.

Bottom line:
I hope you enjoyed this week’s review. I got a new Pearl version last Sunday and I think starting from scratch again feels just great. Is having the same fun all over again, and I think that’s one of the greatest things about Pokémon games. Progress on the new review format is also good so far. So keep checking this space for further previews.


Hope you enjoyed.
