    As you guys already know, we open once a week (or that is what we try to do XD) a new thread to talk about a Pokémon. We can talk about the competitive, of what we like about that Pokémon (or not), if we ever used it in the games (so we can share our experiences with that particular Pokémon: if it helped in some way during your battling or not) or to simply share knowledge about that particular Pokémon.

    This week's Pokémon is Tapu Koko!
    [​IMG]
    Type: [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Base stats: 70 HP | 115 Atk | 85 Def | 95 Sp. Atk | 75 Sp. Def | 130 Spe
    Ability: Electric Surge | Telepathy (HA)​

    Here's another Pokémon used a lot in the VCG17. This Pokémon is called the guardian deity of Melemele Island. It's know to protect its home but even so he is fickle and sometimes don't help people in need. It's also very curious so he can come to play or battle with people or Pokèmon that interest it.
    It's 130 Speed stands out and allow Tapu Koko to defeat many non-Choice Scarf users and its STAB moves can really be powerful.

    Moves:
    [​IMG] Thunderbolt
    [​IMG] Dazzling Gleam
    [​IMG] Volt Switch / [​IMG] Discharge
    [​IMG] Protect
    Item: Life Orb / Electrium Z / Fairium Z
    Ability: Electric Surge
    Nature: Timid (+Spe -AtK) / Modest (+Sp. Atk -Atk)
    EVs: 4 HP/ 252 Sp. Atk / 252 Spe
    Thinderbolt is the best STAB option for Tapu Koko. Another great (and risky) option is Discharge. The move will damage all Pokémon except the user in Double battles and has a 30% change of paralyzing each of them.
    Dazzling Gleam is another great move that will damage all adjacent foes.
    Volt Switch (or U-Turn) is used to attack the foe and switch with another ally. This move is great to scout the opponent's Pokémon and moves and get in another party Pokémon easily. Volt Switch is a more powerful option but U-turn can hit Ground-types.
    Protect will block powerful attacks against it (note that it will not fully protect it if the foe use a Z Move) and stall for a turn.

    Today for the "did you know?" we have two interesting things:
    Tapu Koko shares its category with the others guardian deitys, all of them are know as the Land Spirit Pokémon
    Tapu Koko has the hightest base Speed of all Fairy-type Pokémon (Electrode has the hightest base Speed of all Electric-type Pokémon)

    And now, let's share our experiences with that particular Pokémon in our games, cool fan artworks (with the source) or anything else!
