Festival of Battle - {{{Region}}}, Part {{{Part}}}

Welcome, welcome, to the first annual fight of the Pokémon Wiki, the Festival of Battle! I'm [[User:{{{User}}}|{{{User}}}]] and I will be your host of the Festival this week! The Festival, as you have read, features the battles of Pokémon in a specific region. Each weekend you can taste some of the battles these Pokémon will have, so give a big support for ones you like!


Now, let's hear for the commentators!

This is certainly a clash between two quite unusual and intriguing Pokémon: Gourgeist (a Ghost/Grass-type) the haunted jack-o-lantern gourd, and Sliggoo (a pure Dragon-type) the dragon snail. The way I see it, even though I am rooting for Sliggoo, I know that this battle could go either way, depending on many factors.

A Sliggoo with the Sap Sipper ability automatically has an advantage in its immunity to all of Gourgeist's powerful Grass-type moves. Despite the fact that Gourgeist possesses a very strong Defense stat, it has a relatively mediocre Sp. Defense stat. Sliggoo possesses an average Sp. Attack stat, and could land a super-effective hit on Gourgeist using Special Ice-type moves such as Ice Beam or Blizzard (learned via TM).

On the other hand, Gourgeist possesses strong physical Ghost-type moves (such as Phantom Force), which are likely to overpower Sliggoo due to this snail's low Defense stats – especially if Gourgeist uses Trick-or-Treat to add Ghost-type, endangering Sliggoo even more. The size of the Gourgeist is a very important factor to consider. A small-sized Gourgeist would have a Speed stat advantage over Sliggoo, but not as much physical attack power; whereas a large or super-sized Gourgeist would have a lower speed stat, giving Sliggoo the Speed advantage, enabling it to attack first. However, the larger a Gourgeist is, the more physical Attack power it has. Sliggoo would be able to land an Ice-type attack on a super-sized Gourgeist first due to the Speed advantage; but Sliggoo, being unevolved with average stats, might not be able to knock out a Gourgeist on its first strike. Sliggoo’s most powerful Dragon-type move is Dragon Pulse, which has a neutral effect on Gourgeist. If a super-sized Gourgeist survives a Sliggoo's Ice-Type move, or Dragon Pulse STAB move, and counters with Phantom Force, Sliggoo's average Defenses would not likely be sufficient enough to endure the hit.

No matter how large a Gourgeist is, its Defense and Sp.Defense stats remain the same. Truly it is Sliggoo’s Speed advantage over larger Gourgeist that might save it from being forever haunted by defeat!
