Those wee slugs were downright cute when they were young, but once they’ve evolved...are a different story. These enormous slugs use their massive pseudopodia to get around, and prefer to play in mud. Once evolved, Gastrodon gains a Ground type, negating damage from Electric-type attacks but doubling the effectiveness of Grass-type attacks – if it weren’t so useful we’d be bored of it by now, after Wooper, Barboach and Marshtomp pulled the same trick. Gastrodon learns the new attack “Muddy Water,” a Water attack as powerful as Surf with the added bonus of lowering the enemy’s accuracy – are the days of Surf’s dominance finally numbered?
