    Pokemon of the Week: Hoenn!

    Yup, PotW thread three! As the thread title says, this is all about declaring a pokemon of the week! I'll be using a random number generator every week to determine what pokemon to use. The first pokemon might get a short week, but it'l keep things going, yeah? Also, this Pokemon of the week (PotW) thread will be specifically for Hoenn! Kanto, Johto, and Sinnoh get their own threads!

    This threads all about discussing the Hoenn pokemon of the week in whatever way you feel, whether you hate it, love it, think it's weird, you're indifferent to it, or just have some crazy things to say about it. Throw in some links while you're at it, etc. etc. This discussion is completely loose and there's no boundaries, as long as it has to do with the pokemon of the week!

    Alright fellow pokefans, start posting!

    Alright! The first Hoenn PotW is...! Crawdaunt!

    http://www.legendarypokemon.net/imag...rtwork/342.png

    Dex number 342
    Type: Water/Dark
    Ability: Hyper Cutter/Shell Armor
    Height: 3' 7"
    Weight: 72.3 lbs
    Japanese Name: Shizarigar (gazoontite?)

    Crawdaunt, the Rogue Pokemon. Crawdaunt has an extremely violent nature that compels it to challenge other living things to battle. Other life-forms refuse to live in ponds inhabited by this Pokémon, making them desolate places. Crawdaunt molts sheds its shell regularly. Immediately after molting, its shell is soft and tender. Until the shell hardens, this Pokémon hides in its streambed burrow to avoid attack from its foes. It is a ruffian that uses its pincers to pick up and toss out other Pokémon from its pond.

    Crawdaunt's a cool pokemon. Like Zapdos, I'm not a fan of it, but it is an interesting Water type. For a Water/Dark type, it's cooler than Sharpedo, anyways. :P I'm one of the few that prefers Crawdaunt over it's common comparison, Kingler. Kingler just looks... moronic. He always has that stupid look on it's face, soooo... >.>;;; That's just my opinion, though.

    On the competitive battling scene, Crawdaunt is actually overshadowed by Kingler and Sharpedo. Sharpedo, while more frail, is generally better for it's purposes. Sharpedo can do a lot of what Crawdaunt can do, but better.

    What Crawdaunt can do that Sharpedo can, Kingler probably can as well, like Swords Dance. Since Kingler is faster, has higher defense (but not sp. def), and even faster, Crawdaunt might be a worse option. Having dark STAB to work with is nice, but Kingler might be slightly better. Crawdaunt's just another common UU. Not good, not bad, but sadly overshadowed.

    Now, what's your opinions on Crawdaunt?

    Crawdaunt is cool. It has unique coloring, not to mention its weird lags and claws. But Sharpedo is much cooler.

    I beg to differ. >.> Sharpedo < Crawdaunt. Sharpedo's just... meh, for me. I simply don't like him. Garchomp is the better (land)shark pokemon. :P Sharpedo just seems so... stale, it's not very inventive for a Sharp pokemon. On the contrare, Garchomp is IMO.

    Crawdaunt easily crushes Sharpedo because he has something over the Dark-typed shark: defense.

    I'm sure that Crawdaunt would be dismantling you instead. :P

    In a battle, Crawdaunt pretty much beats Sharpedo 1 on 1. It should survive a hit, and then one-shot it with something like Brick Break.

    Then it should faint from rough skin. LOL

    Actually, the best Sharpedo can manage is Earthquake on Crawdaunt, which generally won't put Crawdaunt in KO range by Rough Skin. Crawdaunt then rips it to shreds with Brick Break, lol. Won't have much HP left after Rough Skin, though.

    You made a valid point though, I forgot about rough skin, lol.
