So I've decided to post a thread about walls. No reason, just feel like it. I'll begin with a prompt, but all wall discussion is welcome here. So here's a prompt to spark some discussion: What is your...
Favorite wall to use?
Mine is probably Porygon2. With eviolite, the duck is incredibly bulky and will live through almost anything. Plus, it gets boltbeam coverage with its decent SAtk and is a good general switch-in to most Pokemon. Physical and special attackers alike hate this thing, which is why I love it so much. With reliable recovery in Recover and status in Toxic, it is a great defensive Pokemon and has won me more than a few battles.
Least favorite wall to use?
I've always had it out for the pink blobs, and I'm not sure why. I feel like Porygon2 is cooler, has more offensive prowess, and can actually take physical hits, unlike our egg-loving friends here. Even though Chansey and Blissey have Natural Cure and admittedly more bulk, (at least on the special side) other walls tend to last much longer simply because they aren't completely useless on the other end of the spectrum! In addition to my competitive disdain for the pink blobs, I just think they look SO STUPID.
Wall you most hate countering?
Though it isn't really a wall per se, I have to say that one Pokemon I have a really hard time taking out is Sableye. With investment, Sableye gets surprisingly bulky and ticks me off with priority Swagger, Will-o-Wisp, and Recover. It's also immune to most priority moves itself, fearing only Bullet Punch and Aqua Jet. So that only makes things worse.
