Espeon or Alakazam? Which is the better special sweeper?

0 votes

So i am playing in Emerald & i need a special sweeper for my team & psychic pokemon cover most of my team's weaknesses. I was thinking that since Alakazam has a higher special Attack but i'm not sure if i should get Espeon instead. Can someone give me a comparison of the two psychic pokemon?

thanks

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think you can get espeon on emerald
Isn't that FRLG?
in Emerald, there is a clock you can set in the beginning of the game

Go for Alakazam
It has better speed and sp.attack
Also, Espeon has very shallow movepool,
while alakazam can learn all 3punches(via breeding or move tutor)
and in gen 1-3, all 3punches were special attack

Ok thanks! i'll make an alakazam
In gen1-3, all punches were special attack, since they were determined by the type

I actually think Espeon is the most strongest. Pick Espeon. Because you know, Espeon can learn a lot of strong moves. Espeon is also a good special sweeper
