Blastoise.

Here's a stat check:

Tentacruel:

HP: 80
Defense: 65
Special Defense: 120
Speed: 100

Blastoise:

HP: 79
Defense: 100
Special Defense: 105
Speed: 78

Thanks to superior defense and mmore well-rounded defensive stats, it is easy to see why.

Note: Tentacruel has access to Poison moves, to counter Fairies, so you might want to consider it

Note 2: Mega-Blastoise has excellent offensive power, a great ability, and access to moves to exploit the ability.

So, it can hit Fairies just as hard, albeit without the Super-Effectiveness.


Here are two common Blastoise Movesets:

Blastoise (F) @ Leftovers
252 HP/ 252 (Special) Defense/ 4 Special Attack

  • Scald
  • Rapid Spin
  • Toxic
  • Protect/ Stealth Rock

or

Blastoise (M) @ Blastoistinite
252 Special Attack/ 240 HP/ 16 Special Defense
Modest Nature

  • Aura Sphere
  • Water Pulse
  • Dark Pulse/ Dragon Pulse / Ice Beam
  • Rapid Spin
