Pokemon of the Week!
What's up, Pokemon 101 fans! This is my first ever POTW, so please bear with me.
Milotic, one of my personal favorites, is a Water type UU Pokemon that, in my opinion, should be used to wear opponents down due to its base 125 Sp. Def., 95 base HP, and the fact that it only has one type. Milotic is weak against Grass and Electric types, and with not so much of a variety of moves, should not be used against them (except in Gen V, when Milotic can use Bulldoze). However, Milotic can use moves such as Recover and Rain Dance, which also makes it a good team player.
Milotic has two abilities, Cute Charm, which can infatuate the opponent, and Marvel Scale, which boosts Def. while Burned, Poisoned, etc.
Leftovers, Marvel Scale, Bold Nature
1st Move: Scald
2nd Move: Recover
3rd Move: Ice Beam/Hidden Power Grass
4th Move: Toxic/Haze/Dragon Tail
EVs: 252HP/248 Def./8 Speed
I believe that this is truly the best way to use a bulky Water type like Milotic. Leftovers, Marvel Scale, and Recover keep Milotic alive for almost forever, while Scald is the perfect Water move with a chance to burn. Hidden Power Grass will take away those pesky Electrics and Ice Beam will annihilate Grass users. Finally there's Toxic, which will make opponents continue to lose health, while there is almost no way to stop it, if you play with items.
Leftovers, Marvel Scale, Calm Nature
1st Move: Rest
2nd Move: Sleep Talk
3rd Move: Scald
4th Move: Dragon Tail
EVs: 252HP/192 Def./ 56 SpD/8 Speed
This moveset provides a way to deal consistent damage to any opponent. Rest, Leftovers, and Marvel Scale, again keep Milotic alive to deal out some damage. Dragon Tail will deal some damage and force your opponent to switch out (except for Pokemon like Octillery), allowing you to find out which Pokemon you should hit with that Scald.
Life Orb/Leftovers, Marvel Scale, Timid Nature
1st Move: Hydro Pump/Surf
2nd Move: Ice Beam
3rd Move: Hidden Power Grass/Hidden Power Electric
4th Move: Recover
EVs: 4HP/252 SpA/252 Speed
Using a Milotic in this way would be a bit of a gamble without EVs, because a Grass or Electric type could come along and blow you out of the water. However, if you do have these EVs, you would have a force to be reckoned with. Ice Beam takes out Grass types, and Hydro Pump and Surf deal real damage, but still, an Electric type could come along and KO Milotic with a Thunder.
In short, Milotic is a great Pokemon, if you know how to use it ;)
That's all for this POTW! (my 1st ever one) I'll see some of you guys in the Winter Cup!
P.S: Sorry if this is a little short, or if this comes out with no indents. Not my fault.
