Poke-Reviews:  Rampardos
Type: Rock   Number: 409
Height:  5ft. 3in.  Weight:  226lbs.
                Certain Pokémon fulfil certain roles and have certain names to them. Pokémon with lots of defense and hp are walls. Pokémon with High Speed and Attack are often sweepers or revenge killers. Pokémon with both high Attack and Defense are tanks. One type of Pokémon strategy people rarely use is glass cannons. These are Pokémon with SUPER high Attack and Special Attack but frail in every other sense of the word. Rampardos is this Pokémon.
                Part of the problem is the typing. Rock on its own is an ok type but a lot of the really good Rock types are boosted with duel typing or high Defenses. Other than that, straight up Rock type Pokémon have a ton of weakness. Steel, Ground, Water, Fighting, and Grass are a wide variety of Pokémon that can erode this dinosaur to death. But how is it really?
                Stat-wise: Like I said, Rampardos is a glass cannon which means it has one super high stat. In this case it is the Atk stat coming in as a base stat of 167 which is the sixth highest Atk stat according to Serebii. HP is also pretty high but that doesn’t matter much for anything. HP is only good if it can survive taking a lot of hits. The problem is that Rampardos defenses are low and speed is even lower.
                Move-wise: Rampardos learns a lot, A LOT of hard hitting moves. It can learn Take Down, Zen Head-butt, and Head Smash. That’s just level up moves. TM’s give you access to Earthquake, Return, Power-Up Punch, Rock Slide, and Strength. Bred moves include Hammer Arm and Iron Head. However, if you transferred Rampardos from the older games it can have Outrage and Fire, Ice, and THUNDER PUNCH! It doesn’t even have arms to punch.
                Ability-wise: You have two choices. Mold Breaker, which was discussed in my Ability Spotlight but as a reminder, can ignore certain abilities like Levitate. The other ability is the hidden ability Sheer Force which increases the power of moves at the cost of their secondary effect.
                Overall this is mediocre glass cannon. When it hits, Rampardos can tear down walls, but it has to live. I am unimpressed with my Rampardos in my recent play through of Pokémon Platinum and I have done my best to keep it alive. Use it if you much, but there are other powerful Pokémon that will live long enough to use. Basically, buyer beware.
