Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Swampert or Typholsion?

0 votes

I was thinking on playing a Pokemon online RPG and of all starters I could pick from, I narrowed the list down to two starters. Swampert and Typhlosion. I love both of them as much.

Swampert can learn Surf, but he's S.Atk is not as high as I would hope. He/She only has one weakness and that's Grass (4x). Swamperts base stats sums it up to 535. Learns less TMs than Typhlosion (33 TMs).

Typhlosion has high Speed and S.Atk, but he can't learn any useful HMs (I think so). This one has three weaknesses, Water, Ground and Rock (2x). Typhlosion has 534 in his base stats. Typhlosion learns more TMs (36 TMs).

I want/need a Pokemon who can hit hard and can withstand a few hits, I will EV train if I have to. All suggestions are welcome.

Give more details about what you like. IF you don't answers will be unfair because they'll probably just say their favorite pokemon (I'd say Typhlosion :P). Possibly say what your team will look like
yeah can you gives us a view of your team, or what you plan your team to be?
Completely different roles. No way to compare them. But we can find which one will best fit your team :)
I'd say Swampert but it's your decision :P
