Justin take a few days off PD, your having your man period again.
Ok, I just leveled a fucking level 10 Shellder to 30, I want some DAMN good reasons from both of you why I should chose Slowbro or Laparas over Cloyster as my water pokemon! And Toxic, you better defend why you are still right!
See, this is what I get for not waiting for PD pokemon advice and taking it from an alt. I wind up leveling a damn Shellder.
Shellder evolves via Water Stone just in case you weren't aware. I LIKE CLOYSTER. As I've already said before, his defense is straight up amazing and you can Clamp shit to death soooo easily. It's really cheap, but works. I should have never said anything though, cause it seems like you're gonna be unhappy with whatever someone else says.
"Strong Pokemon. Weak Pokemon. Those are just the selfish perceptions of people. Truly skilled trainers should try to win with the Pokemon they love best." Karen said that in G/S/C. So maybe that Pokemon is Golduck for you. If you're not feelin' it with Shellder, then go catch a Psyduck. You gotta have that chemistry, you know?
Oh no you don't Toxic, you ain't getting out of this THAT easily! I may just train both, not like I eve use the 6th slot for anything good anyways.
If you're just going to spam surf all over everything then go with Lapras I guess. The thing is, water types are typically pretty bulky Pokemon. They can take a hit or two and dish out some as well. Cloyster is a defensive wall meaning he can take a mega kick to the face and not blink. Slowbro is the opposite I'm fairly sure. I wanna say he's specially defensive. Lapras I believe has better special than both of the two, but not as good defenses.
If you were looking ONLY at defense, I'd say Tentacruel is also an option since he's resistant to like 13 types or something. Honestly, I don't know what the hell you want though because all you said was "whats the best water pokemon," and then shot down every answer someone gave you. I said Cloyster because I felt he was a perfectly valid option, as well as one that would break up the monotony of over-used Pokemon like Gyarados and Blastoise. Sorry for trying to help man >_>
And if you're going to ask what the strongest electric Pokemon is, it's Gengar for the record.
Gengar is shit in game, what do you think exploding and putting things to sleep in game is going to do? Gengar is only OU because its niche. Alakazam is much better.
The best water type in game is Starmie FYI, although Lapras and Cloyster are ok, Gyrarados is terribad.
Just Special Attack and Special Defense rolled into one, which means if you can deal ALOT of special damage (Moves of Water, Fire, Grass, Dragon, Psychic, Electric, and Ice type), you can take alot, as well. Not sure if there's anything besides that
As IF THIS handbook helped me understand all that bs in 1998.
NO ONE had internet back then to explain this shit and if they did, God's step dad was using it to watch porn. You forget how long ago first gen. was!!! These kids thinking REAL pokemon fans played after gen. 1 and subsequently had the internet to help them.
In pokemon there are 2 attacking categories, physical attack and special attack. In early generations 1-3 the classification of the attack is determined by its type, all water moves are special, all normal moves all physical, ect. Physical attack is boosted by the attack stat and damages using opponents defense, special attack uses the special attack and damages using the opponents special defense. In gen one both special attack and special are one stat, so if its boosted, you boost them both, allowing you to take move special hits, and damage move with your special moves.
