Ranking the Pokemon: #62- Dewgong

Dewgong is mostly this high up because the actual dugong is pretty cool. Have you ever seen one? Quite entertaining.

With solid HP and Special and OK Defense, Dewgong's not going to wow anyway with its stats. And, like any other Water/Ice type, it learns the basics: Surf, Ice Beam, etc. etc. I just always enjoyed the animation for Aurora Beam, which is an inferior Ice Beam that happens to also lower Attack. However, since I'd rather freeze an opponent than lower their attack, the Gong Show isn't actually very useful. But sometimes nostalgia trumps actual battling ability. And seeing Dewgong shoot off an Aurora Beam in the Elite Four before I finished it off with Thunderbolt is a great memory.

Battling Grade: C+

Previously: #63- Tangela
