    Since we are a Pokémon community, I thought of opening a weekly thread to talk about a Pokémon. We can talk about the competitive, of what we like about that Pokémon (or not), if we ever used it in the games (so we can share our experiences with that particular Pokémon: it helped in some way during your battling or not) or to simply share knowledge about that particular Pokémon.

    This week's Pokémon is Lurantis!
    [​IMG]
    Type: Grass
    Base stats: 70 HP | 105 Atk | 90 Def | 80 Sp. Atk | 90 Sp. Def | 45 Spe
    Ability: Leaf Guard | Contrary (HA)

    EVOLUTION:

    Level up (34) in the day​

    When you look at this Pokémon the first thing you will thnk is: "I hope it's good" but the reality isn't always that good. Lurantis has a good design (that reminds some bacon) but its terrible base 45 speed make him really slow. Its Hidden Ability, Contrary, is really useful to boost Lurantis Special Attack but it's not always possibile since its speed make this difficult.

    Moves:
    - Substitute
    - Synthesis
    - Toxic
    - Leaf Storm
    Item: Life Orb
    Ability: Contrary
    Nature: Timid
    EVs: 116 HP | 252 SpA | 140 Spe
    The best thing about Lurantis is its hidden ability: Contrary. This moveset is made to spam a Life Orb powered up Leaf Storm that will boost Lurantis Special Attack (well, remember that this poor thing is really slow).
    Toxic is used to weaken down the opponent and Synthesis to stay healthy.

    What do you think about Lurantis? Have someone of you used it in your adventure or in a competitive battle?
    I think that I caught one Lurantis for my Livingdex and boxed it forever since I don't think I'll use it XD

    And now, let's share our experiences with that particular Pokémon in our games, cool fan artworks (with the source) or anything else!

    Well, when I first saw this Pokémon, I was like, "I am SO going to get that Pokémon once I play the game!" When I found its prevolved form however, I already had a good team, so I was like, "Meh." I already had Bouncee from the trade, and it was stronger....I did catch it for the Pokédex, but that was pretty much it...:noone: :alone:
