Why would you use EQ? My set is supposed to be special attacking, with Subpunching for *****s like Blissey who sponge up special attacks.

why not just use earthquake on blissey? insted of taking up 2 move spots for substitute and foucus punch

no why are you leaving typhlosion in against blissey when EQ does on average 34% plus blissey can just use softboiled

Though I excel in competitive battling this decision comes down to means of what it is you're looking for. Obviously, it's a fire type, but lets go a little further in depth.

Typhlosion excels in special attacks as well as speed, hence if you wanted to quickly defeat your opponent, he'd be a good choice; however, you'd need a moveset with Thunderpunch and Flamethrower or another fire attack, with two fillers.

Torkoal is a defensive Pokemon with good HP. I know sometime down the line he learns Amnesia, that's a great move to teach him; along with Rock Slide, perhaps EQ, and Toxic. He's meant for tougher opponents that you have to use strategy against, as opposed to quick sweeping.

More like Torkoal is a tank and typhlosion is a sweeper. No Amnesia on Torkoal plase, and no, you don't excel at competitive battling, as your rating shows.

Haha. Torkal as a tank? No. Why would you want a tank that blows up?

superryan
10th August 2005, 9:42 PM
well it can't exactly sweep either, and it has decent defense, so I just assumed tank.

Golden Groudon
10th August 2005, 9:45 PM
Meh. It's hard to classify.

torkoal, typhlosiom is outclassed

I've never actually used a Typhlosion well due to overestimating its usefulness in the first half of G/S/C, so I'll say Torkoal, since it's an extremely variable Fire type that isn't dual-typed like other Fire types ( Magcargo and Camerupt are excellent examples ) with 4x weakness to Water.

However, Typhlosion is a lot easier to use and all you have to do with it is sweep.

But in the long run, I'd rather go with Torkoal.
