Absol is so....cool. He's awesome, and he's my ultimate pokemon.

Absol is a quadrupedal mammal-like Pokémon, resembling a wolf with feminine traits. Its dark blue to gray body is covered in white fur, with a ruff around its neck and chest, and a tuft on the top of its head adorned with a single blue-black oval. It has a cat-like face, a scythe-like tail and a sickle-shaped growth on the side of its head. Its broad, circular feet are equipped with three claws each, and spikes protrude from the heels of its hind legs and the elbows of its anterior legs.

Absol is able to predict when a natural disaster will occur, and tries to warn people when one is approaching. This often has the unfortunate effect of Absol itself being blamed for the disaster.

Absol first appeared in Jirachi: Wishmaker. The Disaster Pokémon showed up to take Jirachi back to Forina. However, Absol wasn't the true villain of the movie. It was Butler, because he wanted to forcibly extract Jirachi's power to create a Groudon.

The Disaster Pokémon also appeared in Absol-ute Disaster. The people of a town were blaming Absol for all the bad things that were happening to their town during the past month. Ash and co. (along with a boy named Nicky) went out to search whether or not the accusations were true. They found out that the Absol were actually warning the town about a flood. All of Ash's, May's and Brock's Pokémon that had long-range attacks (plus a Heracross belonging to Nicky's brother, Gordon) helped Absol move a boulder in front of oncoming torrent of water.

Drew captured and trained an Absol for the Kanto Grand Festival.

An Absol had appeared in Mutiny in the Bounty, captured by the evil Hunter J and her henchmen after Ash's Pikachu, Melodi's Gardevoir and Team Rocket's Meowth got stolen. The Absol was returned to its rightful owner after Ash, Team Rocket and Melodi reunited with their Pokémon, and after some of J's minions were arrested.

Origins?

Absol may be based on the Barghest, a monstrous black dog in English folklore. Seeing one was believed to portend imminent death or misfortune, but unlike the Barghest, Absol warns people about disasters. It may be also be based on the black cat superstition. Absol's head is modeled after a Yin-yang.

Absol's name may be derived from 物騒 bussō, dangerous, but much debate exists over the true origin of its name. One common theory is that it is a combination of ab-, a prefix meaning away/from, and sol, meaning sun. This could imply that Absol is away from the sun, reinforcing its Dark-type nature. It could also be a shortened form of "absolute", referring to the absolute nature of its species, disaster.

Lol at first one.

It WOULD suit Paul, whom in my opinion IS a disaster in himself.

Sure, you can join DC!

BTW, maybe you could make an Absol Club banner? That is, if you still make banners.

(An Absol using a Shadow Beam (black beam) would be awesome)

YAY! I JUST FOUND A SHINY ABSOL IN DIAMOND AND PEARL!

Wish me luck!

If you see a Razor Wind aimed at your direction, that's me. That's my warning for hurricanes. Rock Smash is for Earthquakes, and there's more I wanna keep secret.

Absol @ Life Orb
Super Luck Trait
Lonely Nature
14 HP / 252 Atk / 244 Spe

Swords Dance
Sucker Punch
Psycho Cut
Rock Smash / X-Scissor

Swords Dance sets the disasterious sweeper up, and it all depends on what the opponent does next. Rock Smash easily takes cares of most Steels and Normals, and Psycho Cut kills Fighting, Posion (thus annihilating a Toxicroak... If it's slower). Sucker Punch has +1 Priority, so I can get a quick hit in if the person is foolish enough to stay in with a Pokemon that surely won't withstand such power. If I'm not sure, I'll just go for Sucker Punch since nothing is immune to Dark and I might have a chance of KOing whatever gets switched in to Absol.

new topic

What attack that Absol doesn't know should know?

Cynic Kaka
May 8th, 2008, 04:52 PM
Well, I'd say the attacks that he don't know that he SHOULD know would be....

ugh....OH!

Shadow Force, and perhaps Volt Tackle

Naito
May 9th, 2008, 03:58 PM
Volt Tackle and Shadow Force seem like signature moves of Giratina and Pikachu...

Maybe some more dark-type moves showing it's more dangerous nature? Pursuit might be decent, imagine switching out with a Psychic/Ghost because of Absol and all of a sudden you're hit with a whopping 260 BP Pursuit WITH STAB and an amazing 130 Base Attack applied on top of that...

Maybe Stone Edge or Earthquake? It's said that a disaster of some sort always happens near Absol when a human sees one.

Cynic Kaka
May 9th, 2008, 05:23 PM
Lol true...but seriously, Shadow Force'd fit him so well.

Cynic Kaka
May 11th, 2008, 07:00 AM
Ok, Next order of Business:

If Absol had an Evolution, what would it look like, what would it be called, would it have a secondary type, and other stuff.

If Absol had a Pre-Evolution-(same as above)

Naito
May 11th, 2008, 08:48 AM
Pure-dark types are awesome... I don't see a secondary-type that could fit Absol other than Normal... But a Quad-Weakness to Fighting is no good... A Pre-evolution of Absol might be a pup Wolf, with no intimidating features really, except for the growing blade on it's head... That could fit Normal/Dark... I'm not actually that sure about an evolution, however..

Cynic Kaka
May 11th, 2008, 09:17 AM
Hey..I think the Dark Classification isn't really neccessary, because I don't see why it's dark, if it WARNS, not causes.

Light would be a cool type for it, if it existed.

♣Gawain♣
May 12th, 2008, 04:13 PM
Cool, now I can show my Absol's stats in Emerald and Pearl...

Emerald: Absol(F) Bold nature Lv. 79

Movesets: Ice Beam
Slash
Shadow Ball
Perish Song

Pearl: Absol(M) Adamant nature Lv. 71

Movesets: Perish Song
Night Slash
Torment
Blizzard

Plus, sorry I'll disagree on having a Pre- or After Evo of Absol... It is just good the way it is...

Crimson Arcanine
May 12th, 2008, 05:47 PM
Can I ask out of interests sake, why the ice move?

Naito
May 12th, 2008, 06:05 PM
I would like to know why also... It's better to have a pure physical moveset, considering Absol has 130 Base Attack. That should not go to waste, ever.

Cynic Kaka
May 13th, 2008, 02:54 AM
Blizzard...?

Hm//Maybe he has Ice Beam for Drake?

Yeah, I got nothing.

Crimson Arcanine
May 13th, 2008, 07:41 AM
From what I see, it depends on what sort of coverage that one is aiming for.

Myself I would probably be using something like Rock Slide or Stone Edge.

With only 75 base Special Attack I don't believe it reliable enough to be using Ice Beam or Blizzard, but then again if its only really for ingame, its probably fine.

Its interesting the high number of Special based moves it can learn

Cynic Kaka
May 13th, 2008, 08:07 AM
Yep! Well, no team is perfect, or Pokemon, for that matter. After all anyone can try, but no one is perfect!

Ahhhh.... In my principle, I must learn a Special type attack even of it's base stats are somewhat low. For you know, for some advantages. And I have a fondness in icetype moves. And recently, I've changed the Slash from the one in Emerald into Double-Edge. Its very efficient.


Ha! I like your signature Erureido! It's kinda funny.

Okay

Crazy Scenario: You have an Absol thats rather depressed, mainly because of its ability to predict disasters (Lets say its rather young and not too knowledgable about its own abilities). You've been seeking a way to help Absol out of its depression but to no avail. Just when both of you have given up, a strange, powerful entity appears out of nowhere to help. It says that you must help your Pokemon by sharing its burden. The choice how is up to you.

Would you choose A) A "psychic" link that allows communication, B) For 30 days, you will have your Absol's abilities, while your Absol will not longer have its ability for those 30 days C) Permanently, during 12pm to 12am each day you and your Absol swap abilities. D) For 14 days, you both swap bodies with rach other. or E) Other (if you pick that, please explain)

Twinx
May 15th, 2008, 05:15 AM
Great topic Riolu. ^^

I would choose B) For 30 days, you will have your Absol's abilities, while your Absol will not longer have its ability for those 30 days
Absol might enjoy not having this ability for a while, but it'll feel empty after a while, and it'll realize the importance of this ability after loosing it. That would be my solution.

Cynic Kaka
May 15th, 2008, 11:23 AM
For me, telepathy (ftw!) because I could communicate with it, and eventually teach it that its ability is important in the world. Plus, after that, I could still keep it.

.Eevee-Chan
May 15th, 2008, 05:29 PM

May 17th, 2008, 10:58 PM
Hohoho. I am (since yesterday) the proud owner of a shiny Absol, and I'd like to join this club. Enough small talk: now for answering the questions that have been brought up.

What is your Absol's Moveset?

She's in training at the moment, but the moveset I'm working towards is the following:

Swords Dance
Night Slash
Psycho Cut
Rock Smash (for those dang Blisseys)

Insert entity-showing-up-and-granting-a-power question here

I would go with (E), which in my case would be to permanently have Absol's power. We'd have something in common, and we could relate to each other better. That way, we'd trust each other more and would probably have an easier time helping each other (i.e. when one of us gets depressed about our ability).

I think it would be unwise to take away Absol's ability, because it's very useful. I mean, just think about it: Hurricane Katrina? The California wildfires? The earthquakes in China? If an Absol existed to predict them, lots of people wouldn't have had to lose their lives or their property.

Cynic Kaka
May 19th, 2008, 03:03 AM
Damn, that's more creative than midnighteon

Awesome, a fellow Shiny Absol owner!

You're in!

♣Gawain♣
May 19th, 2008, 04:26 PM
My answer is...
D) For 14 days, you both swap bodies with each other.

So that my Absol will also share my joys in "human" life.

Since it's slowing down a bit around here, I have a few questions. First, do the founders/co-owners have to make up topics or can any member do so? And secondly, more on-topic, can anyone explain how exactly Absol uses that blade on his (her?) head to fight? I know one of the anime episodes featured a fight of some type against an Absol, but I haven't seen it and doubt I could find it online. The blade looks a little cumbersome, not to mention very short and attached to a difficult body part to wield (its head instead of like a paw or something).

Cynic Kaka
May 26th, 2008, 04:07 AM

1. Yes, anyone can post topics.

2. It can be used to stab, and, as seen in an opening sequence for Pokemon Advance, it uses Razor Wind that way/

Umm...buy it a box of chocolates? Sorry, that sounded like a "your girlfriend is having issues and it's you" kind of deal lol. Although...chocolate is deadly to dogs, and Absol is fairly canine-esque, so that would probably be a bad idea. Me thinking like that is probably why my Absol would be miserable in the first place.

Erm...this brings me to two new topics:

What exactly would an Absol enjoy doing?

What exactly is Absol? Dog? Lion? Frog-monkey in disguise?

What is the origin of Absol's name?

I'm going to go out on a limb and say it's a tweak of the word "abysmal," which means "extremely or hopelessly bad or severe."

That's all I can come up with right now -_-'

EDIT: Found some great images.

i don't really know,but something related to a kind of disaster.

Cynic Kaka
June 24th, 2008, 04:53 PM
Absol's name may be derived from 物騒 bussō, dangerous, but much debate exists over the true origin of its name. One common theory is that it is a combination of ab-, a prefix meaning away/from, and sol, meaning sun. This could imply that Absol is away from the sun, reinforcing its Dark-type nature. It could also be a shortened form of "absolute", referring to the absolute nature of its species, disaster.
