    Default Wobbuffet

    202 Wobbuffet

    Patient Pokémon: It desperately tries to keep its black tail hidden. It is said to be proof the tail hides a secret.

    Ability: Shadow Tag - Opponent is prevented from switching

    Types: Psychic

    Lake Verity, Lake Acuity, Lake Valor using PokéRadar


    Base Stats
    HP 190
    Attack 33
    Defense 58
    Special Attack 33
    Special Defense 58
    Speed 33

    Total: 405


    THE Wobbuffet
    Nature: Bold/Calm/Impish/Careful
    Item: Leftovers
    EVs: 6 HP / 252 Defense / 252 Special Defense
    Moves:
    Counter
    Mirror Coat
    Encore
    Safeguard/Charm/Destiny Bond

    Its not its stats that make it an Uber pokemon, only 405 total. Yes HP is off the chart, but Defense and Special Defense are low. Not much can one-hit KO this pokemon however! Not even a modest, choice specs Darkrai using Dark Pulse. It is also not an Uber due to its choice of moves; It only has 8 moves to choose from. Splash? If it had Taunt as a move option this would be insane. Encore is close to taunt though.

    The real reason why Wobbuffet is Uber is because it is Uber annoying!
    Its ability forces your current pokemon in play to deal with it. Anticipation is the key to using Wobbuffet which is why the Uber tier see a lot of mixed attackers. A key to defeating Wobbuffet is attacking with a move that your pokemon is resistant to or takes no damage from...such as a Ghost attacking with a normal or fighting attack.

    Wobbuffet is not a good choice for someone who is new to battling. It takes a lot of practice and patience to use effectively.

    Just had to put in my two cents. First of all, Wobba is no longer Uber, so comparing him to other Uber's is worthless since he probably will not be going against them. Second, Wobba can be OHKO'd. Quite easily in fact. Here is a damage calc on Wobba being destroyed by everyones favorite Heracross:

    Hera @ Choice Band Megahorn against 252Def/6HP Wobba: 169.57% - 199.38%
    Hera @ Life Orb Megahorn against 252Def/6HP Wobba: 147.52% - 173.60%

    Yeah, just proof that he can in face be OHKO'd

    And lastly, Wobba is no longer Uber. And yes, I'm aware that's also my first reason, just saying

    He is no longer Uber on some sites. His status hasn't changed here. At least not yet.

    Thanks! Updated nothing to not much.

    However Wobbuffet would not come into battle with a Heracross in play and Wobbuffet would switch out if one came into battle. Unless its the last pokemon on a team, that battle senario is close to nil.

    Wobba will always be uber. Only an amateur would lose a battle with one on thier team. Your pretty much always guaranteed at least one KO. Anyone actually know why smogon took it off uber?
