    Raichu's Analysis
    Well, let's start by saying that Electabuzz and Jolteon outclass Raichu in every Base Stat except Attack, many Earthquake users are faster than Raichu, and a certain Speed-tie now has a way of dealing with Raichu directly thanks to Drill Run. However, Raichu does have access to Base 90 offenses for Physical and Special Moves alike, making this Base 100 Speed rodent a veritable pain to deal with when you can't outrun nor tank it.

    Raichu is a roadblock for many Pokemon, but it's still fragile. Base 60 HP barely goes above 300 when maxed out and Raichu users will likely max out Speed and at least 1 of its attack stats, so getting Priority chips can quickly KO it.

    Go have a ball
    Emolga@Choice Scarf

    EV's: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spd
    Nature: Timid
    Electro Ball
    Air Slash

    It may seem wierd to have a Scarf on a 103 base Speed stat, but it raises it's speed to make Electro Ball more powerful. Volt Switch to get out of an anticipated switch, and HP Ice for BolBeam coverage. Air Slash is mostly filler.

    Pokemon Covered: Emolga

    Emolga is a fun Pokemon. It's an Electric/Flying type, which gives it some good resistances and an immunity to Ground-type. It does bring weaknesses to Rock and Ice, however, which are not only frequent, but it also makes Emolga weak to Stealth Rock. It's typing of Electric/Flying is only shared with the legendary Zapdos. What separates the two the most is their stats. Emolga's biggest hinderence is that it has fairly lackluster stats, with the exception being its base 103 Speed. What Emolga is really good at is its utility rather than straightforward power or toughness. It can boost itself to either make itself powerful, or it can even boost its teammates. Overall, Emolga may be cute, but it can swoop down and claim victory over unsuspecting foes.

    Base Stats:
    HP: 55
    Attack: 75
    Defense: 60
    Sp. Attack: 75
    Sp. Defense: 60
    Speed: 103

    Static: The opponent has a 30% chance of becoming Paralyzed upon using a direct contact move on Emolga. It's okay, but not as good as its other ability.
    Motor Drive: Emolga is immune to Electric-type moves and gets a +1 boost to its Speed stat when hit by said moves. An awesome ability, as it not only gives a stat boost, but it gives Emolga a second immunity.


    Charge Beam:
    -Charge Beam
    -Air Slash
    Item: Leftovers
    Ability: Motor Drive
    Nature: Timid
    EVs: 160 HP, 156 Sp. Attack, 192 Speed

    This is a set geared towards Emolga working more by itself to sweep the opposition. The idea is to use Substitute upon the (hopeful) switch on the opponents side, then use Charge Beam to boost Emolga's Sp. Attack. Air Slash is a great STAB move, and the flinch chance can be useful with Emolga's high Speed. Roost is a terrific move for Emolga, as it both heals Emolga and makes it lose its Flying-type for the turn. Other options include Hidden Power [Grass], which gives great coverage, and Thunderbolt, which is a stronger STAB Electric attack. However, the moves listed are usually superior.

    The nature is to boost Emolga's Speed. The EVs allow Emolga to outrun Haunter, while the other EVs balance Emolga's HP and Sp. Attack. The HP is odd to allow more switches with Stealth Rock, although Roost helps with the lost HP.

    Baton Passer:
    -Charge Beam/ Agility
    -Taunt/ Encore/ Thunder Wave
    -Baton Pass
    Item: Leftovers
    Ability: Motor Drive
    Nature: Timid
    EVs: 248 HP, 8 Defense, 252 Speed

    This set allows Emolga to support the team by powering up its teammates. The first choice is based on what your team needs: Sp. Attack or Speed. Substitute not only provides a bit of a buffer, but it can also be passed to the recipient of Baton Pass. The third slot is a bit of a toss up. Taunt is suggested if your using Agility to keep Emolga from being Taunted itself. Encore is also a good choice for locking down a Pokemon that tries to set up on Emolga. Thunder Wave also assists the team by lowering the Speed of the opposition. Once set up, Baton Pass passes the stat boost (and possible Substitute) to another party member.

    The Leftovers give Emolga a little bit of healing, especially for the Substitute. The nature and EVs max out Emolga's Speed while giving it an odd HP stat, great for more switch-ins and allowing 4 Substitutes.

    Choice Band?:
    -Wild Charge
    -Aerial Ace
    -Iron Tail
    Item: Choice Band
    Ability: Motor Drive
    Nature: Jolly
    EVs: 252 Attack, 4 Defense, 252 Speed

    This set is more of a gimmick, but it gives Emolga some power. Wild Charge is Emolga's most powerful physical STAB Electric move, but the recoil doesn't allow Emolga to live very long. Aerial Ace is the most powerful Flying-move Emolga has, as Acrobatics does not work with the Choice Band. Iron Tail is actually a good move for Emolga, as it covers both of its weaknesses, although its accuracy is a bit shaky. Finally, U-Turn is great utility and helps the team by keeping up momentum.

    Other Options:
    -Like the Choice Band set, a Choice Specs set can be made. It is still quite gimmicky.


    Although Emolga is fast, revenge killers can prey on its frailty. Sawk with Sturdy and Choice Scarf can end Emolga quickly with Stone Edge. Bulky Pokemon like Misdreavus, Regirock, and Audino can take most of what Emolga can dish out and attempt to cripple it. Finally, Murkrow and Cottonee with their priority Taunt can ruin Emolga, especially the Baton Pass set.
    Let's face it: ferret-esque Pokemon are the most epic Pokemon ever (to me)!!!!!! Why can't Nintendo make ones that AREN'T NU Pokemon?!? One of these guys in standard would make me quite happy.
