Although there is a stigma that the Normal type is weak, the truth is that at no time should you underestimate the Pokémon within this group, since we are facing one of the more effective and powerfulsince, except for Rock, Ghost and Steel, they do neutral damage to the entire table of types, while they are only weak against the Fighting type.
It is for all these reasons that, despite their normality, these Pokémon stand out for their enormous versatility, which allows them to be in any type of situation against the rival in Pokémon battles. And with that, it’s time for you to meet the best Normal type pokemon.
Normal-type Pokémon are characterized by the neutral damage they cause in almost the entire type table
Let’s start first with discards, since in this case we will not include neither Legendary nor Singular Pokémon, which leaves out Arceus and Regigigas (Silvally didn’t even have a chance). On the other hand, the common Pokémon that are left out are many more, since they do not enter the top all these Pokémon: Obstagoon, Porygon Z, Blissey, Taurus, Wyrdeer, Ursaluna, Slaking, Miltank, Oranguru, Ditto, Grafaiai, Cyclizar, Pyroar, Lopunny, Farigirad, Braviary, Smeargle, Kangaskhan and Indeedee.
The huge list will already give you to understand the potential of these Pokémon, either by one method or another, but the truth is that almost all of them are too good. Be that as it may, we are now going to talk about the lucky five:
Once again we have to emphasize the fact that the new additions of Nintendo Switch they are quite good, since with Maushold we can find a Pokémon that, despite having nothing in appearance, has a moveset and an ability that makes it very feared unless you have a Ghost, Steel type Pokémon o Rock on the team.
And it is that Maushold can use Proliferationa movement in the purest style of Icicle, Stone and the like that can do a lot of damage if we take into account that with Expert as Skill can double its power, which causes it to do 60 damage. However, what makes it more special is the fact that can attack up to 10 timesbecause with its accuracy of 90, it can weaken a Pokémon.
However, there is the strategy of putting Magnifying glass to increase your accuracy up to 99%, so barring bad luck, Maushold’s Proliferation will attack 10 times. Add to this the fact that his high Speed and Attack can be improved with General cleanliness and the Normal teratype we have an unbeatable gimmick.
Zoroark de Hisui
Another recent addition that shows us once again that regional forms may outperform originals, just as it happened with Alola Ninetales in the top of the best Ice-type Pokémon. Be that as it may, let’s start with the obvious, since with its type combination Hisui’s Zoroark is immune to Normal, Fighting and Ghostvery common types and which also makes it resistant to most priority moves.
This goes hand in hand with his massive Speed, as he few pokemon surpass him, along with a Chosen Scarf with Suppressed Grudge, Shadow Pulse, among many other movements can make the opponent have nothing to do against such potential. And if this was not enough, he has Illusion, so if we trick the opponent into using one of the three types he is immune to, he can enter the field with a clean turn.
By far, Hisui’s Zoroark will end up being one of the best regional formsthe only reason why it is not higher is the fact that the three Pokémon they are playing now are very good at the same time that the absence of the competitive Pokémon Arceus in Legends has not yet allowed it to unfold its full potential.
It may surprise that this Chansey en lugar de Blissey, but if we look at their stats, both Pokémon’s are pretty much on par, making Blissey only slightly better than Chansey. However, if we equip the evolutionary Mineral to the latter, the result is that Chansey surpasses his evolution in everythingbeing even better when it comes to evolving it for happiness-.
In any case, Shock Absorber, Wish, Thunder Wave, Toxic, Protection, and Seismic (or Flamethrower for Ghost-types), are moves that make it clear that Chansey is a Pokémon to go out on the field, resist everything that is thrown at it (on the side Special, since physically it is made of paper) and gradually defeating the rival. In fact, if your entire team is Special and you’re up against this Pokémon you Scrap, you’d better give up.
It is because of all this Chansey gets up for more than a decade, proving, as happens in the anime, that evolution does not make a Pokémon better in all cases. In fact, if we mention cases, Chansey Might Have Been The Best Evolutionary Ore Pokemonbut another has preceded him.
The absolute king of Normal-types is undoubtedly Snorlax when it comes to being an offensive and defensive pokemonsince, not for nothing, we are facing the best Pokémon of the second generation and the one that defined the competitive one, since Skarmory and Machamp existed solely to stop it before it got to use Curse, Rest and Sleepwalker too many times.
And this is the combination that it had in the second generation, which has helped it along with Earthquake not to decay too much over time, although it is true that it is no longer as fundamental as before. In any case, Snorlax is still one of the great Pokémonespecially thanks to Leftovers or Berries that can make him last longer in combat and counting on Body Slam, Earthquake, Dark Lariat and even Curse to get stronger.
What’s more, with the combination of Curse and Trick Room, more than one may have to fear his Body Slams, especially if he uses Teracrystallization in the future. And as if all this were not enough, he was one of the lucky ones in receive a Gigantamax form and Z-Moveswhich, despite not being the best, were quite decent and useful.
Normal-types are led by a Pokémon that it hasn’t even reached its final stage, since although Chansey has reduced the use of Blissey, it is still used. However, Porygon 2 has completely eclipsed Porygon Zbeing this a Pokémon that you should fear, since it is the best Pokémon to carry the Evolutionary Ore from far.
To begin with, the two Defenses are very good, so there is nowhere to take him, counting on Toxic, Thunder Wave and Recovery to make it difficult to defeat him. In fact, the potential of this Pokémon is so great that it can be seen in Legendary teams, here being able to use Rare space to attack before and take advantage of his low Defense.
If anything, the only way to stop him is to poison him with Toxic, but even with those a change can reset the way he nerfs while Recovery brings him back to health. From all this it can be seen that Porygon 2 is so good it doesn’t even need to attackthus making it the best Normal-type Pokémon.
