Unlike Gothitelle, we can't really compare Reuniclus's design to a previous Pokemon species, although he does look a bit like a less angular Rotom. Where Gothitelle leans more toward Special Defense, Reuniclus hits hard with a base 125 Special Attack – Calm Mind is a must to boost its Special Attack even further. Once your Reuniclus is nice and calm, go for a good STAB like Psychic or Psycho Shock.

Despite boasting two brand-new abilities, Overcoat and Regenerator, tried and true Magic Guard is still your best bet. Its low Speed begs for a Trick Room strategy too, and if you decide to go for Trick Room you can split your EVs between boosting its already great Special Attack and bolstering its HP and defenses.

    The people in the GamesRadar Pokemon forum convinced me to pre-order, so I went with White. Nice to know that Reuniclus would probably work well with a Life Orb... BTW...you sure swore quite a bit this past week, Carolyn.

    Theres a line between pokemon and human another one just pushed it, fell sorry for the 25% of males that have to look like a girl.
  • philipshaw - February 14, 2011 12:49 a.m.

    I was already going to get Pokemon White and this just confirms it for me
  • ThatGuyFromTV - February 13, 2011 4:14 p.m.

    Reuniclus reminds me of Dr. Fetus

    Unfortunatly both seem like they belong in the UU category, unless some amazing strategy is discovered to make it jump up to OU.
  • BroGamer - February 13, 2011 4:49 a.m.

    Well, that was close. Gothitelle evolution seemed to be headed towards a more human form ala Lopunny. Let's see rule 34 do this! Nonsense aside, I would so get Black just so I could fuck over cousin with some long-lasting attacks. Let's see him try and save his precious Pokemans nao.

    Feh.
  • Robusken - February 13, 2011 3:09 a.m.

    Not my cup of tea I guess.
  • Pokefan8824ever - February 13, 2011 3:06 a.m.

    I like both of them and there abilities can be used for about anything pending on what you want to use them for like frisk I use it to find items on pokemon like trace to find pokemon with the wanted ability lol
  • FrozenImplosion - February 13, 2011 2:29 a.m.

    Woah Gothitelle looks a LOT like Gardevoir.... gonna need to get me one, gardevoir was my main in sapphire :3
  • Crabhand - February 13, 2011 1:40 a.m.

    I'm very much enjoying the design for Gothitelle, and I'm considering using it. The only thing that disappoints me is it's ability, I would definitely prefer it's dream world. As far as simply playing through the game, however, frisk is fine.
  • EvilChicken - February 13, 2011 1:30 a.m.

    Really, are the pokemon just getting weirder, or is it just me
  • antierro - February 13, 2011 1:15 a.m.

    im interested in the dragon types in this game, i like the 3 headed one very much!
  • xXxBattousaixXx - February 13, 2011 12:45 a.m.

    Flubber looks cool n I'm glad he's in White(the one I'm getting). The emo one reminds me of half the freshman and sophomore girls at my school lol.
  • jpbr139 - February 13, 2011 12:24 a.m.

    *Gardevoir. Sorry for double post
  • jpbr139 - February 13, 2011 12:18 a.m.

    Love them because they are psychic, but I'm buying Black so Gothitelle is going to be on my team. Actually I think Gothitelle is not like Jynx, is more like a gothic Garvevoir.
  • Pocotron - February 12, 2011 11:48 p.m.

    Jelly Man is a true pivotal piece to any good Special Attack team. I've never given too much thought to Gothitelle however.
