What is a good Pokemon for a gen 3 team in Emerald?
I want to go for Absol, but his stab moves are special, and his attack is obviously higher. Is giving him Shadow Ball worth it? or is there another good Pokemon? I doesnt have to be too strong, but not too weak either.
Even though it has better attack, it has pretty good sp. atk, so both its STABs being special is no problem. It can also learn Surf, which you will definitely need in Emerald, and also Ice Beam for coverage. It'll also be good against Tate & Liza, as well as against Wally's Gardevoir (who I think only has Psychic moves in RSE, and likes to spam Calm Mind & Double Team).
It is one of the best water types in all of the games,it is a great special sweeper,awesome HM slave for the water HM's.I know it is hard to find a feebas but it is worth it.
Good set(breed if you want dragon b. and hypnosis) :
Dragon Breath/Ice Beam
