Pokemon Gold Water/Ice Pokemon Lapras or Cloyster?

0 votes

Hello, I am playing my old Pokemon gold game and every time I play I usually do lapras for water/ice combo. I saw cloyster has similar attack stats but totally different defense. Anyone know if its worth it playing as cloyster or should I just stick with lapras? thanks

Cloyster

Moves

Aurora beam/Ice beam
If you want Shellder to evelove early choose aurora beam if late use ice beam.

Surf
Good water type move useful in game

Spike cannon
Great move

Whirlpool/Blizzard
You said that you would use him in game then I would choose whirlpool. Because it is great when you need in outside of battle but if you gonna use him to win over the E4 I would choose Blizzard

Lapras

Ice beam
Great power

Rain dance
Powers up water type moves and Thunder Accuracy

Surf/Hydro pump
Choose which of them you want Hydro pump for damage Surf for HM.

Thunder
Great power 100% accuracy during rain

Hope this helps
