    Spiritomb's cool in both design and lore... though it certainly doesn't seem so if deprived of said lore.

    Hi yes, hello. I've been trying to get the hang of playing on a set of Donkey Konga bongos. I've got the hang of waveshining into double laser 360 half pipe bananarama, but I'm having a hard time smash attacking. How loud should I be clapping?

    Pokemon of the Week # 108

    Spiritomb



    Spiritomb, the inferior Sableye Forbidden Pokemon. Its constant mischief and misdeeds resulted in it being bound to an Odd Keystone by a mysterious spell. It is composed of 108 spirits.

    Ah, Spiritomb. How I dislike you. Though, recently I've started to not dislike it as much. The whole reason I dislike it in the first place is due to it overshadowing Sableye in Generation IV, which is fairly biased, I admit. Looking at it again, it actually has a fairly cool design (though it pales in comparison to Sableye's). It also has a fairly interesting backstory, and good stats.

    Competitively, Spiritomb is pretty average. In generation IV, it had the unique property of being the only Pokemon without weaknesses that had decent stats. It also had good defenses, decent offenses, and a fair movepool. Its slowness didn't really matter since it was designed to be a tank. It could viably run a defensive set, a Rest + Sleep Talk set, a Choice Band set, and more, thanks to those good stats. It could even use Shadow Sneak and/or Sucker Punch to overcome its horrible speed. Overall, Spiritomb was a great Pokemon in the UU metagame.

    Thankfully everything changed in Generation V, where Sableye got Prankster, skyrocketing it into UU, passing Spiritomb by a tier. Sableye had lower stats, but it had Prankster and Recover, two attributes which allow it to essentially take hits much better then Spiritomb. Sableye also got Foul Play, which somewhat made up for its lack of offensive power, allowing it to hit brutes like Darmanitan on the switch in for massive damage. Not only this, but Eelektross was introduced, which had slightly lower defenses but significantly higher offenses. Spiritomb got basically no new tools to make up for this extra competition, and although it ended up being more successful then Eelektross, Sableye outclassed it completely. Oh, delightful irony.

    i c wut u did thar. Though I am disappoint ya didn't go into how Spiritomb relates t' Buddhism.

    That aside, I certainly like Spiritomb. For a sentient being that comprises of 108 evil souls, you'd think it'd be a lot stronger as well as more sinister lookin' (it's not exactly intimidating)... That's my only gripe with it's design though, I quite like both it and the lore it's design is based around. Then again, I'm biased for Dark types so that's t' be expected.

    I wouldn't mind seein' Spiritomb get an evolution eventually. Namely it bein' released from the keystone to become some far more hideous and nasty lookin' 'mon(ster). With it's wholesome inferiority to Sableye when it comes t' competitive battlin', I'd say there's good reason for it t' get a late evolution.

    Do you really think that Spiritomb, after all of this time, will still get an evo? I think he's too old for a new addition.

    I've always liked Spiritomb because of how it is essentially a Philosopher's Stone from FullMetal Alchemist.

    Watch that anime if you haven't (FMA: Brotherhood).

    Naw
    Does not remind me at all of a Philosopher's stone
    Yeah I get that there is a soul in the stone but does that equate it with Soul Gems from the Elder Scrolls
