    Azumarill (OU)

    Azumarill





    Introduction

    Azumarill, althought not frequently used in BW OU, is a formidable revenge-killer and hard-hitter. Thanks to its ability, Huge Power, Azumarill's Attack stat is doubled! Most variants tend to use a Choice Band, which gives Azumarill a numerical attack stat of 654! Its Aqua Jet and Waterfall can also be boosted by Rain, which lets Azumarill dish out a lot of damage to Pokemon that don't resist its move. It also has access to Superpower, which demolishes Ferrothorn. Its STAB Aqua Jet can revenge-kill Heatran and Volcarona, something Scizor cannot do. It can also utilize Ice Punch to defeat Dragon-types. Azumarill also has decent 100 / 80 / 80 Defenses, allowing it to take a hit, then retaliate with a powerful move. Since they're naturally slow, HP EVs are always invested.

    Choice Band

    Azumarill @ Choice Band | Huge Power
    Adamant Nature | 212 HP / 252 Atk / 44 Spe
    Aqua Jet | Superpower | Waterfall | Ice Punch / Return


    Equipped with a Choice Band, Azumarill becomes insanely powerful. Aqua Jet is its main STAB priority move, and it hits hard, allowing Azumarill to revenge-kill several threats such as Terrakion, Heatran and Volcarona. Superpower nails Steel-types like Ferrothorn, who tend to tank Aqua Jets really well. Waterfall is used to deal with more bulky opponents, as it hits stuff harder than Aqua Jet. Ice Punch nails Dragon-types like Dragonite and Salamence, while Return is used for a decent move that hits a lot of targets neutrally.

    I won't deny that Azumarill is a good pokemon. It very much is, especially when in the Rain since it gets a boost in water moves. However, I have a strong hatred towards it since it always destroys my teams (Sand and Hail). It has incredible power. And when equipped with choice band, it becomes a huge menace to me. All ranting aside, it is a pretty good pokemon, imo.

    Good as a surprise attacker every now and then, but definitely not OU. It's like Linoone. It can be devastating, but only with luck and a lot of support.
