Cofagrigus or Jirachi?

0 votes

Im looking for a mixed wall, and im choosing between Jirachi and Cofagrigus (NO FERROTHORN ANSWERS)
Cof has a good mix of spd and physical d, where as jirachi can do a very good job aswell, but i find i have to drop a few hp evs, which take away from its defences. any thoughts?

Let's see. Cofagrigus has great defenses and can spinblock pokemon but Jirachi has wish support and Paraflinch. It depends on which suits your team most. I'd Suggest movesets like:

Cofagrigus @ Leftovers
Ability:Mummy
Evs: 252 Hp / 136 Def / 120 Sp.Def
Nature: Bold (+Def, -Atk)

  • Rest
  • Haze
  • Shadow Ball or Hex
  • Will-o-wisp

Rest is his only way of healing. Haze is simply just a filler. Shadow ball does a nice amount of damage while hex does a little bit more while the burn damages over time. Will-o-wisp is just Will-o-wisp.

OR

Jirachi @ Leftovers
Ability:Serene Grace
Evs: 252 Hp / 224 Sp.Def / 32 Spe
Nature:Careful (+Sp.Def, -Sp.Atk)

  • Body Slam or Thunder Wave
  • Iron Head
  • Wish
  • Fire Punch or protect

Body Slam or Thunder Wave to cause Paralysis but Body Slam can't hit ghosts while Thunder Wave can't hit Ground. Your Choice. Iron Head is flinch. Wish for healing and passing it to others. Fire Punch to get by those Steel types(I'm looking at you Scizor and Ferrothorn). While protect is protecting for wish and/or leftovers.

Choose either one for what suits your team!

hm, i have a good mixed cofagrigus 320hp 327 def 339 spd
i also have a good jirachi 342 hp 299 def 242 spd.
i think ill go with jirachi for now.
sorry might i ask why evs in speed and not defence?
So you can outspeed many of the 100 base stat speed pokemon to get paralysis or whatever.
Those stats are impossible
