Is this Pokemon viable?


Scrafty


At a glance, Zuruzukin looks like an all-out offensive pokemon, with access to lots of TMs and moves like Head Smash and Focus Punch. However, it is possible to play Zuru as a tank, with crazy defenses like that. His terrible speed is made up for with access to Dragon Dance, and he can make himself even more bulkier with Bulk Up or Amnesia. He has access to the elemental punches, Drain Punch (which got a power boost this generation), and many crippling moves such as Toxic and Scary Face.

Zuruzukin may come into play as a slower, bulkier version of Ambipom with access to Taunt and Fake Out, as well as Protect and Substitute. He could also make a great late game sweeper, and paired with Dragon Dance, can potentially rape everything in the ass mercilessly. With a +Atk nature and a 252 Atk EV investment, you get a 306 Attack power, and with two turns of setup, that gets doubled into a monstrous 612 attack stat. He has enough time to do this with his defense and sp defense. Speed gets a boost, as well. Imagine a pokemon with monstrous defenses and 600+ attack running around with 400+ speed. That is Zuruzukin. Then imagine having Overconfidence on him. Every time he KOs someone, he gets even stronger.

  9. I'm doing a Nuzlocke run on pokemon black (my blog if you're interested) and I'm looking for a heavy pokemon. Maybe this one would fit my preferences perfectly, where can I find it? Hopefully not too late in the game as I'm having trouble keeping my pokemen alive and I'm just at the third gym. It's hard to play a new pokemon game and not losing pokemen :I

  19. Just as most of the others 3rd generation pokemons, I think this one looks pretty retarded. Bulbasur, Charmelon, PIKA-F'ING-CHU, thats some bad ass pokemons. This? A cartoon hiphop'er? Come on!
