Pokemon may have plenty of cute creatures, but it also has plenty of amazingly cool and badass ones. Some of these badass ones are long-time favorites of fans. Unfortunately, looks can be deceiving, and some of them really aren’t that great. Here are a few Pokemon that just don’t live up to their hype.
I was pretty disappointed with Braviary when Pokemon Black and White came out. He looked to be one of the coolest Pokemon I’d seen in ages. With an incredible design and a powerful Attack, I was ready to take the world by storm. Unfortunately, what sets Braviary apart from many of his birdlike peers is his sub-par Speed. With a Speed stat of 80, Braviary is significantly slower than all of Pidgeot, Swellow, Staraptor, and Talonflame. While Pidgeot admittedly isn’t the best of that bunch, the other three are all fast and have threatening offensive capabilities. And in all reality, Braviary doesn’t do much to make him worth using above the faster Staraptor. Braviary has pretty decent defenses, but they’re certainly not fantastic. And a debilitating Superpower aside, he gets walled pretty easily by Rock and Steel types, of which there are many. It’s a shame, I really wanted Braviary to live up to that amazingly cool design.
