Day 263 - Voltolos | ボルトロス| Thundurus (Therian Forme)
Lightning is churned from within Voltolos’ body. Using stored static electricity, it connects electron feelers to the ground to guide its bolts. When there is a powerful storm, that is Voltolos’ anger manifesting itself.
If there’s one thing I’m certain of about myself, it’s that I am obsessed with Pokemon types. So, for the past three days. I decided to do some math. Specifically, I calculated the average power, accuracy, and more of every single Pokemon type, by taking the sum of these values for each and every single known move of the type and dividing by the number of used moves.
The categories were average base power, accuracy, and chance to have a secondary effect (for example, a chance to Poison or flinch), % of total moves that were attacks, % of total moves that were status moves, % of status moves that hindered the opponent (i.e., Leer, Spikes, etc.), and % of status moves that benefited the user’s team (i.e., Harden, Safeguard, Reflect).
So, if you’re curious to learn things you never knew about Pokemon types, check this out. I personally found it fun to guess which type would be the best and worst for all of these before doing the research, so you should give it a try too. I’ll give my guesses after each graph to avoid influencing you.
Also, it’s a good thing I have no friends and my GPA is beyond saving, or I’d never have the time to do anything like this.
