Is Aromatise worth it ?

0 votes

Hello!

I was wondering which fairy Pokémon would fit the best in this:

Greninja
Charizard
Heliolisk
Aggron
Gengar

and the fairy.

OK, my question is the following:

Know something: I don't like Florges. It's too beast in-game. Sylveon doesn't sound to me so strong. Slurpuff, I hate it, but Aromatisse is getting my attention. Can someone tell me if it is worth it, or if it is so bad that I should use Sylveon instead ? And if a fairy doesn't fit well in this planned team, then which type, with some Pokémon choices (3, at least) would be the best ?

Thank you in advance.

Keeping your list of dislikes in mind, i'd say Aromatisse is at least better then Sylveon, but i'm not sure how it would match up to Florges or Slurpuff.

Mega Mawile might be worth looking into since he's completely immune to Poison and Dragon types and learns Iron Head, which is a good weapon against other Fairy types.
I just want to know if I can use Aromatisse. Do you think Mawile is much stronger ?

If you're talking about offences, Sylveon actually has better sp. atk and better speed. Sylveon's speed is at base 60, and Aromatisse at 29. At least Sylveon has a hope of outspeeding things.

The thing about Aromatisse is that none of its stats really stand out apart from its base 101 HP, whereas Sylveon has base 110 and 130 sp. atk & sp. def respectively. Aromatisse only has higher Attack & Defence and slightly higher HP than Sylveon, but attack doesn't really count because Aromatisse can't learn that many physical moves.

You also need to trade Spiritzee to evolve it, so that might be a hassle, whereas you can obtain Sylveon in-game pretty easily.

The only reason to pick Aromatisse over Sylveon is for coverage, as Sylveon (like all Eeveelutions) doesn't really learns any powerful moves outside its STAB, with the exception of Shadow Ball. Aromatisee can learn Thunderbolt, Energy Ball, Flash Cannon and Psychic, with the added option of Gyro Ball (since it's so slow).

As for Mawile, it just has the benefit of being dual Steel/ Fairy. It doesn't learn its best Fairy move until really late (L60), Play Rough at base 90. Mega Mawile is nice, but you don't get the stone until after beating the game. So Mawile is stuck with its base 85 atk. Normal Mawile has pretty poor stats, with none of them hitting green, and is only saved by its typing resistances.

Conclusion

Sylveon > Aromatisse if you want better sp. atk and speed.
Aromatisse > Sylveon if you want better coverage moves.

NB: also Fairy will fit well into your team, being another fighting resistance when you have 3 Pokemon weak to fighting, and also steel and poison weaknesses are covered by the rest of the team.

Fondant, you know what ? That was the exact answer I wanted. I think I will go for Aromatisse, just to make it a bit harder and to take my favorite, not the strongest. At least I know that Aromatisse doesn't suck. Thank you. Really, thank you :)
No prob. Aromatisse just reminds me of Angelina Jolie at the Oscars a few years ago, with dat leg. :O
lol :D
