    Back on topic, Could some Bulky Tangela variants counter it? Never used Tangela in NU much but I thought it would be something to mention. Already mention Bold Weezing with WoW and Clear Smog.
    It can take on tangela with a choice band/ sword dance boost + STAB x-scissor

    Problem is, Armaldo has little choices outside of Water Pulse and a couple moves I forgot to mention which all suck, Armaldo isn't one you want to go mix.

    Water Pulse, Round, Hidden Power, Flash Cannon, and Earth Power. While they don't suck on their own, Armaldo's Below-Average Base 70 Sp.Atk is pitiful next to its godly Base 125 Attack Stat. If you're planning on using Armaldo as a Supporter for some insane reason, you could use Struggle Bug and/or Mud-Slap, I guess...but why waste that delicious Attack Stat?

    Struggle Bug is also the only STAB special move he gets too, and Supp-aldo(shut up with the name) works as well due to having rocks and Rapid Spin as well which helps in in Sandstorm.

    Pun examples:
    "I'll slip an extra shrimp on the barbie for you"
    It's so tough to make prawns based on shrimps
    These prawns are so annoying
    Prawn to disaster
    Prawn to error
    I claim Flygon, the super awesome Dragon

    That actually is decent, though if it had Surf and 130 sp attack as well with STAB, then yes, but for now I am watching prawnography:9

    Armaldo is not a prawn.

    Anorith is based off Anomalocaris (its not a Trilobite)
    Armaldo is sort of like Kabutops, in that it isn't really based off anything except a more evolved, scarier version of its previous form.

    What? darn it, but then what, is it still related to a Shellfish, cause puns with Shellfish are all I could think of:9 Besides Wikipedia isn't the most credible source of evidence.

    I read the Wikipedia page and it said (quoting): "thought to be closely related to the arthopods" and a class of arthopods are malacosraca which includes shrimp.(all this from the website given by BH) so shrimp puns should be acceptable.

    It is a shrimp, but BH said Armaldo is nothing related except a more scarier evo then Anorith who is an abnormal shrimp(might edit this in case I misread it). And she is right, a prawn is similar to a shrimp but they aren't related and don't brood their eggs, instead just basically releasing all the eggs directly instead.

    You guys can use prawn puns if you want haha. I seriously doubt many people who read the POTW will be as particular about it as I was.

    Well, that's the official site statement.

    I write the POTW well aware that probably 95% of people play by Smogon tiers including those at Serebii (like myself). I write it with Smogon tiers and clauses in mind but I still try to mention other server / website / play-styles like Video Game Championships, random Wifi and Pokemon Online tiers.

    I know! We can give armaldo a pun from Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 2! I hope you guys are reading this!
    a. "Armaldo, the mentor of the Legendary Guildmaster Wigglytuff"
    b. "Armaldo the outlaw"
    c. "Armaldo, the unlucky Guinea pig" (Fun fact: he kept falling from the trap in every dungeon during the cutscenes while Igglybuff gets the treasure unscathed.
    d. "Armaldo the Atoner"

    in most cases, you want to give Armaldo a good boost on attack for your physical Attacks like Stone Edge and X scisscor. Defense as well. But you can add some SP defense if it is joining a sandstorm team.

    Weakness: Use Special attacks minus Psyshock (which uses its SP attack against the opponents Physical defense). Scald users are its biggest fears.
