Answering the topic:

Until the 4th Gen, the most underrated Steel Type was Mawile because it can learn only a few Steel type attacks and a lot of dark type attacks. People could not make use of its Attack. It gets a lot of improved in Gen 4th and later on so the the underrated Steel Type for these Gens is probably Registeel with the same logic AlexOzzyCake said.

Hmm, Mawile is actually a pretty fascinating Pokémon to me, I've never really given it much of a thought when thinking about Steel types and yet it's such an interesting Pokémon.


So, I have a few questions... What exactly makes Mawile a pure Steel type? Is it just the hair thing...? And what exactly is that long hair thing anyway? It looks like a huge pair of jaws but that just seems utterly ridiculous so does anyone know? And another question; with a base stat total of 380 and only two decent stats (decent only being 85 in this case), how can Mawile possibly a good Pokémon to use in battle? Does anyone have a Mawile that they've used previously that they'd like to describe? It'd help a lot in understand this... thing. xD I get that the whole idea of this Pokémon is trickery and deceiving, but it's moves don't seem to reflcet that... Although if anything I'd say it should be Steel/Dark, or at least Steel/Normal - it doesn't warrant being one of the only three pure Steel type families in my opinion :p

Anyone have any thoughts about this puzzling Pokémon? :3

According to it's Pokedex entry in Ruby:

MAWHILE's huge jaws are actually steel horns that have been transformed. Its docile-looking face serves to lull its foe into letting down its guard. When the foe least expects it, MAWHILE chomps it with its gaping jaws.
(Yes it says MAWHILE! Typo?)

But I still don't get its huge jaws. Was that the result of some evolution? I wonder if it can actually eat through those things, or if they're just for show.

Anyway, I think I had a Mawile once on my Ruby team for a little while, before I realised it wasn't much of a battler. I did use my Mawile in Beauty contests though. A lot of the moves it knew were pretty good for Toughness Contests, especially the Stockpile-Spit up/Swallow combo.

And I agree that it should be a Steel/Dark, considering it's design is all about deception. Plus, like half of the attack moves it can learn are Dark-type anyway. It's odd that a pure Steel-type would know a lot of Dark-type moves.

Am i accepted?
If i am, i do agree.
Mawile should be Dark/Steel.
And Dark, should be it's main type.
It doesn't look as much of a Steel Type.
I would say, it would be a Dark Type, if it wasn't for it's Pokédex.

Answer to current topic: I think the best steel legendary is dialga because of its look and its power. It is a great pokemon overall and deserves more attention then it gets.
Hiya Jericho, I'm sorry to say this but your membership is rejected due to you not choosing two partner Pokemon. Please choose another one & inform me, thanks in advance~

I'm curious, how come Beldum is our featured Pokémon? :3 It's effectively just a lump of floating metal that can repeatedly ram into things to hurt them... is that worthy of being the 'featured Pokémon'? xD Personally I reckon we should have Registeel instead! It's a really cool and underrated Pokémon for the reasons I've said above so it's definitely a good fit for being featured. :D What do you guys think deserves to be featured?

As for the current topic, that really depends 100% on which Pokémon you're using so it's not really that easy to answer... but I guess in general I train Steel types to be defensive and stall quite a lot whilst taking hits for other Pokémon, they're usually really good at doing that!

Erm, I normally write the names of all the Steel type Pokemon & make a random pick but if you prefer Registeek, so be it~!

As for my answer to out current topic, I prefer to prioritize my Steel types' Attack. Their Defense is already good enough for me so I train them to become Attack powerhouses.

Notice: The quiz's results will be out soon but due to my DS being fixed, the prize-giving will have to be delayed. Hope you'll understand~

Answering the topic:

I prefer Attack for Steel types because they already have high defense. And most Steel types learn Rock,Ground,Steel and even Fighting type moves to make use of their attack.

Why is the featured Pokémon Registeel?
If you want me to talk about Registeel, I'll say what I think of him now.
Registeel, was never my favorite Regi.
I always preferred Regirock, but that's me.
I caught a Registeel for one reason: To transfer to Diamond to get a Regigigas!
Yeah, Registeel is OK, but my favorite Steel Legendary is Dialga. Yayz!
