Who is better: Eviolite Chansey or Leftovers Blissey??

Eviolite Chansey has higher defenses than Blissey, But Blissey has that helpful Leftovers. Which is better??


Softboiled or Wish for Blissey or Chansey?? I like being able to heal other teammates, but i dont like waiting 2 turns. Softboiled does immediate healing but i cant heal others.

It depends if you want extra bulk or extra HP. Lots of people pick Blissey because Leftovers is so important, and it is. IMo, Chansey is better, but if you want extra HP, go with Blissey.
Wish. And Protect. Fore Chansey. Softboilled for Blissey. That's the stall. Softbliled IS helpful, it restores half your HP with no wait. I like Wish + Protect though. Protect is THE stall move. But be careful, you don't heal HP automatically, so someone could do a lot of damage or set up or something.

Chansey @ Eviolite

Trait: Natural Cure
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpD
Careful Nature (+SpD, -SpA)

  • Wish
  • Protect
  • Toxic
  • Seismic Toss/Heal Bell

Blissey @ Leftovers

Trait: Natural Cure
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpD
Careful Nature (+SpD, -SpA)

  • Softboiled
  • Heal Bell
  • Seismic Toss
  • Toxic

I had the same problem. I chose chansey. Blissey only has 10 more hp then chansey, and with eviolite, chansey will have better defenses then blissey.

Natural cure
evs 128 defense 128 special defense 252 hp
seismic toss

softboiled can heal over 300 hp on chansey, a great move. Seismic toss always does 100 damage, which is useful due to chanseys lack of attack. Counter is to deal with physical moves against pokemon which might take you down in two hits (conkeldur with hammer arm). Toxic is for the extra damage, also deals with ghost types while you can stall with softboiled.

If chansey can survive a hammer arm from conkeldurr, then I'm actually a rare species of snipe.

since your team uses life orb a lot, I have to say go with wish.

blissey is better than chansey in my opinion. It can run leftovers which is pretty important. Also, other than SpD and Hp, Chanseys stats suck and can get OHKOed by anything that uses physical attacks. It's lack of offensive capability makes it incredibly easy to set up on. Blissey, on the other hand, has workable SpA, which makes it a somewhat more threatening enemy than Chansey. Blissey also has a better movepool. I don't particularly like either of them though.
