STAB moves for Starters

Post by Barnold1993 on 2015-04-17, 23:40

Why does Fire and water have STAB move but the grass doesn't? I'm assuming because it's gentle? I think it should have all three have a STAB move or neither of the three do. Just my opinion.

I think you might be confused what STAB is. STAB (Same Type Attack Bonus) Is a Game mechanic where when a pokemon uses a Move that is the same type as itself. Say Metalynx using Leaf Blade or Iron Tail. It will receive a power boost. This is same for all types (Including Nuclear)

Well, think that orchynx got the steel type and all the pokemons you battle against at the first lvls only got normal moves so he have more resistance than the other starters.

It's true though. Because of its steel typing, orchynx is way better than the others so I guess its moveset has to be worse to compensate.

Orchynx is definitely the best starter to pick for Nuzlocke runs, with its steel typing + Leech Seed + Mega Drain it's a practically unbeatable wall.

...Probably wouldn't be the best for speed runs though. If you ask me, Eletux is the best bet for speeding through the game, although maybe trading for Yuoaman the Baashaun in Nowtoch City is the strongest Pokemon you can get early on, and he grows fast too.

Baashaum is really strong, and his final evolution Baariette is also worth. Razz
