So I'm going to do a Solo Run, and want some advice on my pokemon...
Why?: Despite his bad stats, he's my favorite. Will it be hard? yes, but it would be nice to have a challenge
Ability: Early Bird
Item: Not sure yet, probably Leftovers
Aerial Ace/Ice Punch
Explanation: Yeah, I know, his base attack is awful, but he can use Swords Dance which I think is the better choice over Special Attack as he can't raise that, plus he can get Drain Punch which will be my life saver when its powered up, and its not only a better move than Mega and Giga Drain but has better coverage like dealing with Jasmine's Steel Gym. My biggest worry right now is I have no idea how to deal with the 2 Dragon using bosses in Johto, as I can't get Ice Punch until after the Johto league.
I picked Light Screen over Reflect because he will be able to tank almost all electric, fire, and some ice attacks that head my way. This means I have to watch out for flying types, rock moves, and physical ice attacks being the least threatening as they're not used much in the games
