Pokemon of the Week #2 - Castform
Hello again, this is DanielSuperpoke, with another Pokemon
of the week.
This week's Pokemon is one that was suggested on the forums
Castform is a very unique Pokemon, because of the
fact that it changes forms based on the weather.
It's not really that competitive, but I suppose it
could be used.
So, let's get on with it, shall we?
Wow, all 70, so it can easily be anything you want it to,
given it has the moves for it.
To hatch Castform, you will need to go 6,400 steps.
Castform is in two egg groups, the fairy group and
the intermediate group.
EVs given from defeating it in a battle is 1 HP EV.
The catch rate is 45.
Castform does not evolve.
Castform is in the NU tier, and for good reason, it's never
there some appealing sets for it, so, let's discuss them!
Castform @ Choice Specs
He gets to almost 400 Special Attack with Choice Specs, and
he's not short on type coverage. If you can predict well,
this can do some reasonable damage in the lower tiers.
Castform can survive most unboosted hits, taking just enough
damage to activate Salac Berry and possibly set up a sweep.
You can try a Petaya Berry if you've got paralysis support.
Castform @ Damp Rock
Water-type Castform. Weather Ball is 100 base power, and you
get a boost from STAB and the weather. Ice Beam covers
Grass-types and any Dragons (Altaria) you may run into.
Thunder covers other Water-types and has 100% accuracy in
the Rain, but Energy Ball hits Quagsire hard.
There is also a Sunny Day and a Hail set for it, pertty much just a twist off of these two. Sunny Day has Solar Beam, and Hail has Blizzard.
For a complete listing of all sets you can use on Castform, go to this page:
Well, I like Castform in game, it's sweet to use, and easy
to get in RSE.
It sucks competitively though, but that's no big deal,
seeing as I like to collect Pokemon.
Basically, Castform is one of those Pokemon the
designers made look good, but forgot to make it perform
good, if you know what I mean.
Castform has appeared in the Anime once.
It was at the weather institute in Hoenn, same place
you get it in the games, and it had the disc will all the
information on it about Groudon and Kyogre.
Team Magma and Team Aqua were both after it.
This episode is:
