Ranking the Pokemon: #142- Onix

Onix is Brock's main companion in the Pokémon TV series. But, as any fan of the games knows, most of the characters on the show use crappy Pokémon. Onix's only saving grace is its, ahem, rock solid defense. Too bad that if you have ANYTHING with a Special move, it can take Onix out. We're talking things as simple as Water Gun and Absorb. Because its HP is atrocious, and its Special is lacking too, Onix is weak against anything the Rock-type is weak to, which is a surprisingly large amount of things. The only good use Onix has is to give you a tough time in-game if you choose Charmander. And that's about it.

Grade: F
