Next entry will be the final one of the series. Maybe.
Comfey: At first I didn't know why this wasn't a grass type. Lots of fairies that look like grass types. Comfey isn't great in competitive unfortunately, but it does look cute.

Oranguru: I find Oranguru to be more balanced then Passimian, but it has low stats overall. It's more defense oriented, and this is reflected in it's moveset, which consists of a lot of status and/or setup moves, like future sight.

Passimian: Passimian is an interesting pokemon. It has a pretty good HP stat, but lacks defense. It's highest stat is it's attack stat. Not a huge fan of it's appearence.

Golisopod: Let's face it, Emergency Exit is pretty much the same thing as Wimp Out, and a second ability just takes up more space. Oh well, at least it has good stats.

Sandygast: I really like it's new ability, and the lore behind it. It's also got some decent stats for an LC pokemon. That shovel looks painful though :(

Palossand: Another pokemon that is subject to weird pokedex entries, Palossand is not bad overall, but not great. Sand veil isn't a great hidden ability, as it requires sandstorm (not a very common weather effect in competitive from what I've seen. I only see it used on sand stream pokemon) to be active, and the immunity to sandstorm it provides doesn't do anything since it is a ground type. You would have to use soak (Another rare move) for the second effect. It's movepool and stats are good though.

Pyukumuku: This pokemon has a very sad background, but it's a good thing people use fling on them at the wild ocean. It's ability is a good last resort, assuming Pyukumuku isn't your last pokemon. It's stats aren't great however, and it greatly suffers in speed.

Type:Null: This pokemon is going to be really interesting, and the lore behind it is pretty great too (Although very sad). It's ability is actually pretty good, and it's stats are almost psuedo-legendary.

Silvally: This is the arceus for people who can't go to the events to get an actual arceus. With a multitype style ability, great, balanced stats, and a cool design, Silvally is one of my favorites. I do wish it got more than just a boost to speed when it evolved, like taking off the helmet unleashes it's true power. Oh well.

Minior: I really like minior for a few reasons. It's concept is great, the fact it has multiple colors is great, and it's shiny is great. And to think it gets more power when it's shell breaks! Really, the only part I don't like is how hard getting a shiny is, as you don't know it's shiny until the shell breaks.

Turtonator: Turtonator is interesting. I don't really like it's design, but it might be pretty good in competitive. Really depends on which tier it's placed in. I see it doing really well in the lower tiers, such as PU, NU, and RU, but maybe not so well in UU or OU. It's a tank pokemon with a decent moveset, but dreadful speed and not much room for setup.

Dhelmise: This is one pokemon that isn't talked about much. The typing just utterly confuses me. Ghost? Sure. Grass? Why not water or steel? It has an ability that multiplies the power of steel moves, and a great moveset, but the moves it benefits most from don't get STAB! It does make up for that with good stats though.

Jangmo-o line: Gonna do this line as a whole as I find them pretty similar. I like their appearences. Jangmo-o is cute, while the other 2 are cool. But I really wanna talk about kommo-o's competitive potential. Dragon/Fighting is a rare typing, and suits it well. As a psuedo-legendary, it has a lot to live up to, and does a decent job. It's only flaw is that it's a mixed attacker. If it had no Special moves, you could redistribute those points into speed or health which would make it SO OP!!! It's abilities all allow for some defensive gimmicks, making your opponent think twice before using a large amount of moves. Overall, this is a really good pokemon.

Next edition will be the last, and I'll be covering the island guardians, the legendaries, and the ultra beasts.

    As a proud user of Golisopod: Attach an Assault Vest, teach it First Impression and Sucker Punch for priority, Liquidation for massive damage, and Leech Life to restore health. With its ability, you can ensure that First Impression can be used at least twice a battle. There's a reason why people love that beautiful beast. XD

    Ah, that's a good idea! Golisopod also has a high attack stat, so those moves will do some good damage.
