I agree with Karst that they're both overrated. Nonetheless, I pick Absol simply because I think it looks cute.

What's up with people and Absol? It is a terrible Pokemon and it isn't even that unique. Is it because it is this Dark Pokemon? And everyone here wants to be "dark" and all that jazz so they can be unique... This is like a hipster fad. I'm at a total loss here.

Hi.



Absol. I like it's appearance more and it reminds me of things that smell good, as well as ice cream.

Outside of Brawl, Lucario reminds me of annoying, hyper, 13-year old kids with messy hair that never shower and have cheesy hands from doritos and/or cheetos. (if I were to only count Lucario from Brawl, where I think it looks clean and organized, though, it would be a tie).


I'm not fond of this "overrated" concept. It's like, "Oh, too many people like this, so I can't like it. Not even if I like it's appearance/personality/etc. more. I'd just be another mindless zombie hopping on the bandwagon." Those people are not you; their preferences should not influence yours in any way, shape or form. Like/dislike/love/hate things for what they are, not for what other people think they are.

Absols are known to be good in battling their Fighting-type disadvantage due to the Psychic attacks they learn (Ex: Zen Headbutt, Future Sight and Psycho Cut). Also, it can be taught (by using TMs) Fire Blast, Blizzard and Thunder. Do not underestimate the Disaster Pokemon.

Future Sight hits everything for normal damage (even Dark-types and Shedinja).

I don't feel like this is a legit argument at all. Yes, Absol has an amazing 130 base Attack, but it doesn't have the Speed to outrun anything. With that 130 base Attack and access to Sucker Punch, Absol is able to potentially play mind games with your opponent. Unfortunately Fire Black, Blizzard, and Thunder are not even Attack attacks, they are Special Attacks. Coming off from a 75 base Special Attack? That's not going to do well.

In an OU environment everything relies on Speed -Absol only has a base of 75 Speed-, a lot of sweepers are going to be outrunning Absol. In OU, it is unfortunately, even worse for Absol because priority attacks are rampant. So welcome Infernape/Hitmontop onto the battlefield where it can quite comfortably one-hi knock-out Absol with Mach Punch. Priority moves will be Absol's bane.

Bottom line: Although it has an amazing Attack stat, its speed and defenses let it down.

This is coming from a battler's point of view.

I don't know anything about the "cute" thing. I believe symmetry and beauty triumphs any sense of cute.
