View Full Version : Slacking

Would it be better using Slacking as a physical sweeper due to its massive attack stat or a physical wall because of its massive hp?

It's not reliable as either tbh. As a sweeper everything becomes a 2-turn move and you get killed, and as a wall you get set up on every cople of turns and end up switching. He's a tricky poke to use, best used as a tank that does a bit of both. I've used a CBKing to moderate effect, but there are better alternatives for either role.

None, it doesnt have the speed to be a sweeper, and the trait to be a wall, more of both.

Ok so mixed is better,
Gofre what does
CBKing mean?

I think Slaking is better off be a wall, since he has one weakness and one resistance and his average Defense and Special Defense stat is good...

His ability is one of the worst ones, especially for sweepers...

CBKing stands for Choice Band Slaking. Most people use Slaking as a hard out Choice Band pokemon, obviously because of its massive attack stat. Using it completely as a wall isn't that good because while it does have Slack Off, Slaking's ability will either force you to switch or stay in hoping your opponent won't do something nasty. As said before, Slaking is hard to use and if you do plan to slap on a Choice Band, you'll need to predict ewhat your opponent has and what he'll switch into, that is if they do switch.
