Archeops-Pokemon of the Week

Overview-Archeops is by far the best offensive pokemon (Meinshao is up there too) in the game. Archeops speed and special attack are over 350 and its attack breaks 400. This, plus access to powerful moves that cripple OU pokemon make it offensive must for any team.

Strategy using Archeops
Kill, kill, kill...This is what Archeops does. You hit hard and fast and destroy everything in your path. Stone Edge is strong with STAB and Archeops huge attack. Acrobactics is even stronger without a held item. Earthquake and Crunch are the 2 best physical attacks in the game, and will generally KO anything in 1 hit, even without STAB. Steel Wing is an alright physical attack, though I prefer Dragon Claw as it is super effective against Salamence and Garchomp and you are faster than them. Your bad defenses are ok because your bad ability cripples your offensive once your Hp falls below half. But if you him right Archeops will destroy an opponents entire team. Join me next time for pokemon of the week.
