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.
