Victini, the Victory Pokemon. Like many event-only Pokemon before him, his adorable looks beliea formidable power. With awesome stats and animpressive movepool, including a signature move only he can learn that's the most powerful Fire-type move in existence, Victini is definitely worthy of his legendary status.

Talk about a well-rounded Pokemon stats-wise. With even 100s in all base stats, how you train Victini is totally up to you. He has two signature moves, Ball of Flame and V-Generate, both of which are powerful Fire-type moves. Ball of Flame is a 100 power, 100% accuracy Fire-type special attack that has a 30% chance of burning the target. Sounds pretty good, right? Well, V-Generate is the strongest Fire-type move of all time to date, with a physical attack base power of 180 and a 95% accuracy, which is automatically raised thanks to Victini's Victory Star ability, which boosts the accuracy of Victini and all Pokemon in your party. The only downside to V-Generate is that it lowers Victini's defense, special defense and speed one stage, and also causes a small amount of collateral damage to any Pokemon on either side of Victini in double or triple battle, but it's a small price to pay for such a powerful move.

There's a catch though –Victini isn'tcapable of learning its signature move V-Generate through normal gameplay. Itcan't be learned through level-up, TM, move tutor, or via any in-game process. In other words, it seems that not only is Victini an event-only Pokemon, but V-Generate is also an event-only move. Ball of Flame on the other hand, you can teach the Liberty Ticket event Victini by visiting the Move Relearner.

Design-wise, I personally love Victini. He falls perfectly into the design of the other uber cute mirage legendaries likeMew,Celebi,JirachiandShaymin, yet still sets himself apart with a unique design. He's cute yet aggressive-looking, and ultra-Japanese with his V-for-victory hand pose andbento apple rabbitear design.

Life is nature's way of keeping meat fresh.
