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!

  • [[User:{{{Commenter1}}}|{{{Commenter1short}}}]]:

Hello! It's me, Jade, back again on the wiki after a bit of an inactivity period. Now, it is time for the fights.

The first place match is Lilligant & Hydreigon versus Steelix. Now Steelix has a very high defence so in theory should be able to withstand a lot of attacks. Because its type is Steel/Ground, Lilligant's grass-type moves aren't going to be very effective (X0.5 effectiveness). When we look at Hydreigon, it seems to be looking little better for the tag team because despite Hydreigon's dark-type moves being X0.5% effective, its ground-type moves are X2 against Steelix. Now we come onto Steelix's attacks. Its ground moves aren't going to be useful at all against this Generation V duo due to Hydreigon's ability: Levitate, and because they are only X0.5 effective against Lilligant. The only way Steelix could win this fight is by using continuously using Fire Fang on the weaker opponent (Lilligant in this case) and then try to deal with Hydreigon using DragonBreath which will do X2 damage to Hydreigon. Not many of Lilligant's moves can combat Steelix as they are mostly grass moves which Steelix will just shrug off. Hydreigon is the only one with any chance of defeating Steelix due to its wider range of attacks. It can't use any dragon-type moves though because Steelix will shrug those off too (being the damage soak that it is). Actually, all of Hydreigon's moves will only do X0.5 effectiveness against Steelix. The best Lilligant & Hydreigon can do is to avoid Fire Fang and DragonBreath and to try to use Steelix's very low speed to their advantage. Overall, my final opinion on this is that Steelix is a clear winner in terms of type advantage but its low speed could just give Lilligant & Hydreigon a chance for victory.

I'll be commentating on the next two matches soon.

  • [[User:{{{Commenter2}}}|{{{Commenter2short}}}]]:

And thus begins the cataclysmic battle between the tag-team of Hydreigon and Lilligant, versus the mighty steel serpent, Steelix. The dragon and lily team might not be able to surmount the high defenses of Steelix.

Hydreigon, having a pretty decent Attack stat, might be able to land a super-effective Earthquake attack on the Steel-type behemoth, but when it comes to physical defenses, Steelix is a powerhouse. . . So, that surely wouldn’t be enough to do much damage. Hydreigon might not have many more weapons in his arsenal to overcome the metallic beast. However, Hydreigon’s Sp.Attack is terrific, and Steelix’s relatively low Sp.Defense is its potential weakness. Hydreigon’s Special STAB Dragon-type moves might not leave a dent in Steelix, but the hydra does have access to Flamethrower and Fire Blast, as well as Surf (Water-type being super-effective against Steelix). With his battle partner, Lilligant, together, the two of them just might be able to do some damage – if they’re lucky . . .

As for Lilligant – she really doesn’t have much of an arsenal at all -- mainly Grass-type moves, which have little effect on Steelix. Despite her higher-than-average Sp.Attack, she doesn’t have many attack choices. If she uses Teeter Dance in attempt to throw off Steelix, it would confuse her partner as well. . .

Now, Steelix has access to Ice Fang, which could easily decimate both team-mates, as both are weak to Ice-type moves.

Things look bleak for this unlikely dragon and flower tag-team. . . I’m rooting for them, but the mighty armored Steelix might be too much for them to handle.

Vote for your favourite!
