Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Staryu or Slowpoke-which one is generally better/versatile?

0 votes

I need to deicide which one to be my surf Pokemon. Not asking for a discussion, just the moves that you found worked best for each one, offensive/defensive movesets, or at least 3 REASONS one is better than the other. You don't have to do every single one of the three options listed.

Tbh the two can't really be compared.... Whilst I loce Slowbro, Starmie is a great special Sweeper, so you'll probably want to use it ingame, as offense is everything.
i don't know that much, so what 'tbh' mean? and what does 'sweeper' mean? I don't know too much pokemon slang/lingo/language. Whatever you call it.
tbh = to be honest. It doesn't have to do with Pokemon, it's just common internet slang.
A Sweeper is a usually fast, hard hitting Pokemon who can easily take out many members of the opponent's team in a row, which is referred to as a Sweep.
cool thanks jarjar

Staryu/Starmie are generally better Pokemon, due to their Special Attack, Speed, and Type Coverage over the Slowpoke chain. If you want a bulkierPokemon, go Slowpoke.

enter image description here
Starmie @ Leftovers
Ability: Natural Cure
EV Spread: 252 SpAtk, 252 Spd, 4 HP
Hydro Pump (Move Relearner)
Recover (Move Relearner)
Psychic (TM)
Ice Beam (TM)

This moveset is good for in-game, as it gives you nice STAB, coverage for Grass with Ice Beam, and Recover for some health restore.

Use slowpoke because slowpoke has a high SPEC. Atk. And high spec. Def.
Teach slowpoke:
Surf
Flamethrower
Ice beam
Calm Mind.
Flamethrower and ice beam will help defend your Pokemon from super effective moves against slowpoke. The surf is for its high spec. Atk. Slowpoke can defend really good so use that Pokemon.
