They are both good abilities. Which one is better?

asked by
Most people use unaware because it completely stops a lot of Pokemon when combined with moves like toxic.
Hey sumwun, you always comment on questions... and your comments can basically be answers. So why don't you answer?

Its a matter of opinion and can also revolve around the format of the battle and your team. Water Absorb can be useful in doubles but is very situational in singles. I prefer Unaware as you can stall out alot of teams that rely on stat boosts. Here is a set that you might want to use:


Quagsire @ Leftovers
Ability: Unaware
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpA
Relaxed Nature
- Toxic
- Recover
- Scald
- Earthquake

Quagsire can have these abilities:
Water Absorb - Raises HP when hit by Water-type move
Damp - Prevents the use of self-destructing moves (Also prevents damage from the Aftermath ability)
(HA) Unaware - Ignores any stat changes in the Pokémon

I personally pick the Damp.

I asked only those 2.
You forget that Quagsire has 2 main abilities and an HA. You only listed one of its main abilities and the HA.
I thought Damp was useless because no one uses Aftermath, Self-Destruct, Explode, or Memento. And the title says "Water Absorb or Unaware for Quagsire?"
