What do you think of Archen/Archeops? I personally love them, though many think they are terrible due to their ability.

For those of you that don't know: They have an ability called Defeatist. When their HP falls below 50%, their ATK and SP. ATK are halved.

That ability seems pretty useful. Anyway, I like them, not as much as Tirtouga and Carracosta, but they're still pretty good. I just like my useful type combo turtles.

I don't like Tirtouga/Carracosta at all. They just seem....Boring to me. Not saying they have no potential, just saying that they seem bland.

Useful...? It halves its attacking stats when its HP drops below 50 lol

I used Carracosta in-game to replace Dewott. I don't regret that decision. But Archeops is cool.

But it's attack is high enough to defeat the opponent before it attacks. bucktooth.gif
Archeops is awesome, he makes a pretty good sweeper.

Well, not necessarily, it could have speed problems sometimes and it doesn't have the ability to OHKO under all circumstances... its defenses are pretty bad too and it's 2x weak to stealth rock :<

It's Attack is rather high, as is it's Speed, so if it can get in a good hit, it could be a potential sweeper. It's Defense(s) really are bad, it doesn't have the greatest moves, either. But with some work, it could be built into a good (Enough) sweeper.
