PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

For ingame and for the battle tower or whatever there is in SS. Actually I'm trying new Pokemon for fun... But please, don't recommend sunkern. I mean something usable at least.

I've seen Bellsprout. Is this a good one? Should I go physical or special? By the way I'm not finding Poison Jab Tm for it, but so far I think I could breed Synthesis and Encore on it.... Also I have a Black Sludge it could put in good use. I dunno.

I assume Meganium is out?
Yeah... I chose Totodile.
Why do you want a grass Pokemon? Very few major opponents have grass weaknesses.
I'm planning a water, fire and grass core. So by the time I reach the battle tower (or whatever there is) I have at least one team to work with.

With and without the use of TMs, I believe Victreebel is the best option. It has decent stats and support options in Sleep Powder/Stun Spore.

Victreebel @ Black Sludge
Ability: Chlorophyll
- Sleep Powder / Stun Spore
- Leaf Blade
- Synthesis
- Encore / Stockpile

With TMs, Victreebel can be a decent sun sweeper with Chlorophyll. You can pick up Sunny Day on the third floor of the Goldenrod Radio Tower, Sludge Bomb from Route 43 (or from the Battle Frontier for 80 BP), and Solar Beam from the Goldenrod City Department Store for 3000 Pokedollars.

Victreebel @ Black Sludge
Ability: Chlorophyll
- Sunny Day
- Solar Beam
- Sludge Bomb
- Synthesis / Weather Ball (both moves from breeding)

Hope this helped!

Thanks! Very helpful. Do you suggest any other grass types? Just to know.
maybe exeggutor could be a good option with stab psychic and wood hammer, in addition to sleep powder
that 4x bug weakness might be a bit concerning though
I'll have a look at it. After playing usum I'm really missing team options in this gen....
Why would you take an extra hour to breed for egg moves when you can spend the same hour level grinding?
It's a matter of preference I guess... I pretty like breeding for egg moves, tms and decent IVs. Whereas I find johnto as one of the hardest regions where to grind levels.
Level grinding is probably still better at simply making your Pokemon stronger. But you can breed if you think breeding is more fun.
