I was thinking about getting a Pineco for my party on SS because I think it'd be a great pokemon for my party.
Not really. It doesn't have the best of stats.
I think its not really good because the best move that learned by pineco is explosion. But, pineco maybe good if you give it good TM like Solarbeam and Earthquake... Hope this usefull!
Forretress is ok but I would not reccomend him because he is slow, with low sp. defense and sp. attack and most of his good moves are special and therefore is not very good.
