Ranking the Pokemon: #145- Weedle

Weedle gets the nod over Caterpie because Poison Sting is SLIGHTLY better than Tackle, in that it has like a 12% chance of poisoning the opponent. Of course, poison is one of the worse status ailments out there, but at the stage of the game you'd be using either Weedle or Caterpie (which should be never, but perhaps you want a challenge or are on acid), it's more useful than nothing. Weedle also reminds me of the rendition of Wiggler from Super Mario 64 (and I'm not alone), so that always gets brownie points. Too bad other than the nostalgia factor, he's terrible.

Grade: F
