    Pokemon of the Week #27 (7/15/2013)

    Crustle



    Crustle, the Stone Home Pokemon. It possesses legs of enormous strength, enabling it to carry heavy slabs for many days, even when crossing arid land. When they compete for territory, Crustle fight viciously. The one whose boulder is broken is the loser of the battle.

    I'm pretty neutral towards Crustle. Its design is okay, I don't particularly like or dislike it. It has an unusually square rock shell, but in all honesty, although it looks odd, I think it works better aesthetically for Crustle than a round shell would. It's somewhat obviously based on a hermit crab. I always seem to forget that it's a crustacean, I only think of Kingler, Crawdaunt, and Clauncher when I think of crustacean Pokemon. Also, it can be seen here without a shell.

    Competitively, Crustle has quite a bit going for it. It has rock solid physical defense, as you would expect from looking at its design. To compliment this bulk, it knows both Spikes and Stealth Rock, allowing it to be a very competent entry hazard setter, especially in the lower tiers. Its typing, while not good, could be a lot worse. Sadly, it has no means of recovery outside of Leftovers, which is a major issue many defensive Pokemon face. Crustle can also go on the all out offensive with its good attack stat, and more importantly, its access to Shell Smash. Although it is slow, it is not as slow as another "hermit crab" Pokemon, allowing it to outspeed even Crobat after using Shell Smash. For attacking moves, viable options include Stone Edge, Rock Slide, X-Scissor, Earthquake, and a few generally less useful moves, such as Shadow Claw and Aerial Ace.


    Dwebble



    Dwebble, the Rock Inn Pokemon (...the inn part seems a bit random, even if it is supposed to be a bad pun). This Pokémon can easily melt holes in hard rocks with a liquid secreted from its mouth. When it finds a stone of a suitable size, it uses this liquid to open up a hole to crawl into. If that rock breaks, the Pokémon remains agitated until it locates a replacement.

    I suppose I prefer Dwebble's design over Crustle's. It's fairly cute, and looks more like a hermit crab than its evolution. It can be seen here without a shell, demonstrating its rock dissolving abilities.

    I don't know that much about Little Cup. Dwebble has a high attack and defense compared to other Little Cup Pokemon, and has access to Spikes and Stealth Rock like its evolution, so I imagine that it would be used at least a little. Humorously enough, Dwebble is actually slightly faster than Crustle, and has a roughly average speed stat for Little Cup, meaning that it can outspeed even Choice Scarf Pokemon after a Shell Smash, a problem that most Shell Smash users face.

    Crustle and 'specially Dwebble's designs aren't particularly grand, but I s'pose hermit crabs aren't really grand things. 'Least Crustle goes the extra mile to display just exactly how very Rock-type it is with that absurdly peculiar stratum-based shell design, I do like that much about it. Gen 6 better give flavor text explainin' why it's shell looks like that. Also, I bloody love Crustle's shiny sprite.

    Base as the pun is, I still wholly approve.

    Reading the interesting facts in the New Leaf museum about fossils, fish, and insects really makes me hate the Pokedex. It's basically just two or three (often generic) facts about a Pokemon repeated with different wording throughout all the entries. I would be really interested in learning details about the biology/behavior/etc of Pokemon, but Game Freak just can't provide us with that, can they?

    RSE's two-page dex entries were a step in the right direction (omaikarp rse did somethin write), but then they went back on it...

    Even then, dex entries really ain't enough, I wholeheartedly agree. But that's where Bulbapedia Trivia comes in.

    I know I fanboy over Gamefreak, but I get annoyed with all the obvious mistakes they have failed to correct over the course of their game-making history.

    Why, I'm glad you asked! Some other obvious mistakes include:
    • Lack of good plot shit
    • Previously mentioned Pokedex thing
    • Failure to correct obvious GTS issues (such as people requesting a lv.9 and under Mew)
    • Failure to make a multiplayer battle mode (at least, in Gen V, not sure about Gen IV) that matches levels AND allows you to use all six Pokemon
    • Insistence to keep making mediocre spin offs as opposed to things like Pokemon Stadium 3, a new 3D console game, etc. At least, this is an obvious mistake to me.
    • Failure to make triple and rotation battles prominent in game

    Those are some of them. I mean, all game developing companies make mistakes, but I feel like Gamefreak fails to fix these mistakes more than most of them.
