Hey, I was wondering what peoples' opinions were about which Pokemon, for each generation, were best for maining solo runs, assuming that you could start with any pokemon.
In other words, if you were playing a rom hack, which single Pokemon, out of the full/national dex for each generation, would be optimal for soloing.
The specifications that I think would be most important to consider are:
- high pp movesets (fewer pokecenter stops/ethers)
- diverse moveset/types (take down most pokemon encountered easily)
- high damage (obviously)
- survivability (assuming all moves are attacks, excluding rest etc., for high total attack pp)
I like maining Dragonite because it has a pretty wide variety of move types for most situations, but I knew there were probably better ones with higher stats, more moves with higher pp, and more attack type diversity.
Let me know your picks and your reasoning for each one
