Festival of Battle - Kanto, Part III

Welcome, welcome, to the first annual fight of the Pokémon Wiki, the Festival of Battle! I'm Rainbow Shifter 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!

It is almost time for Halloween and to kick off the upcoming celebration we have two spooky and strange Pokémon battling it out. Who will be triumphant in this Psychic and Ghost face off?

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!
