* CastFromHitPoints: It gets Belly Drum by breeding, a move that maxes the user's attack (to ''400%'') while cutting HP in half ([[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill and with the Huge Power boost on top of that...]])

* GlassCannon: Becomes this when using Belly Drum, which raises its attack to absurd levels while cutting HP in half. It can use [[ActionInitiative Aqua Jet]] to fix its speed, however, and is slightly less fragile with a Sitrus Berry to recover some health after Belly Drum.



* MightyGlacier: Pretty decent defensive stats and an ability that outright DOUBLES your attack? Yeah, it packs a punch. It isn't fast though.

* SuperStrength: With Huge Power and proper training, Azumarill can have an Attack power beyond most of the Legendaries.

* BecomingTheMask: Despite only pretending to be a tree, Sudowoodo actually ''can'' learn the Grass-type attack Wood Hammer; it's actually an exceptional user of the move, thanks to its decent Attack and the ability Rock Head cancelling out the move's usual recoil.

* PaperThinDisguise: In ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'', you can see Sudowoodo trying to blend in with Trevenants (''actual'' tree-monsters) in horde encounters (before the first leaks, this led some people to mistakenly think that Trevenant was an evolution of Sudowoodo).

* UselessUsefulSpell: Rattled and Rock Polish for Sudowoodo. For a Pokémon as slow as it, even doubling its Speed only does so much, and using up ability and moveslots on trying it only detracts from what Sudowoodo is actually good at.



* StoneWall: One of the premier physical examples. Its 140 Defense lets it easily take neutral physical attacks before healing them off with Roost, and it has all the right moves to make sure it can stay on the battlefield as long as possible while frustrating the enemy with indirect damage.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Shiny Honchkrow's overall look and the fact that it orders Murkrow (who look like "[[WitchWithACapitalB witches]]") around to do its bidding and takes a large cut of what they've found makes it sound like a pimp.

* ComMons: Less so in the main series, but in ''VideoGame/PokemonGo'' they have become ubiquitous immediately after being released, likely to parallel the commonness of crows in real life.

* RecurringElement: Though it might lack the physical similarities and the electric typing that most of the future versions would have, Marill is effectively the original Pikaclone, both being ridiculously adorable rodent Pokémon who are treated as {{SeriesMascot|}}s. Both have a single evolution and both were retroactively given a pre-evolution the generation after they were introduced. It's no surprise that Marill's early FanNickname was "Pikablu" given their many similarities.



* SeriesMascot: Of the second generation. It was effectively pushed as the new Pikachu before Gold and Silver were even released.

* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: The line is capable of learning only two Fairy-Type moves, and just one of them does any damage. However, the one Fairy-Type attack they are capable of learning, Play Rough, is fairly powerful enough and works so well with their Huge Power ability that they really don't need anything else.



* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: Much like Flareon, Entei is a strong physical attacker lacking in strong physical moves, particularly Fire-type ones. Gen IV threw it a bone by giving it Flare Blitz via a (now long over) event, and Gen VI onwards allowed Entei to learn Sacred Fire (Ho-Oh's SecretArt) through the Move Reminder. Entei can still use both of these to great effect (and for Flare Blitz, its HP is high enough to sustain recoil damage, unlike Flareon)

* RecurringElement: Of Snorlax as a Pokémon that blocks the way, requiring a specific item that enrages it and causes it to attack the player. Also has MightyGlacier stats, gets a baby form in Gen IV, and just as Manga/PokemonAdventures [[TheHero Trainer Red]] got Snorlax, [[TheHero Trainer Gold]] keeps a Sudowoodo on his team.

* ActionBomb: Moreso than Voltorb and Electrode. Voltorb learns Self-Destruct at level 33. What level does Pineco learn Self-Destruct? ''Level 6''. Due to learning to explode at such a low level, this Self-Destruct is less a powerful TakingYouWithMe attack and more an example of BetterToDieThanBeKilled.

* BoringButPractical: Its ability to set up nearly every entry hazard[[note]]Sticky Web is the only one it can't learn[[/note]] and spin them away? Booooriiiinnggg. However, no other Pokémon has as many hazards as it, the ability to spin them away, ''and'' an attack that allows it to switch out immediately (Volt Switch). These are all extremely boring abilities that nonetheless contribute to its reputation for being a Pokémon that can decide the outcome of the match.



* LastChanceHitPoint: Come Gen V, its Sturdy ability allows it to survive any hit with 1 HP remaining, so long as it was at full health when the attack hit. Pineco in particular can abuse this at Level 1, using Pain Split over and over to bring itself back to full health while cutting the opponent's HP by nearly half.
