40Def
30Sp Attk
30Sp Def
58Spd

Cranidos evolves at level 30 into Rampardos.

Moveset:Lvl 1 Headbutt-Normal, Power:70 Accuracy: 100%
Lvl 1 Leer-Normal, Power:None Accuracy: 100%
Lvl 6 Focus Energy-Normal, Power: None Accuracy: None
Lvl 10 Pursuit-Dark, Power:40 Accuracy: 100%

Lvl 37 Screech-Normal, Power:None Accuracy: 85%
Lvl 43 Headsmash- Rock, Power:150 Accuracy: 80%

Why Cranidos is useful:
Cranidos is one of those hard tank pokemon with little weaknesses. He has attacks that will almost never miss, making him and great and accurate pokemon. His Attack stat is his biggest strongpoint, filling up almost half of a stat bar. His Special Attack, Special Defense, and Defense are not so good however, but his HP makes up for that. All around, Cranidos is one of the best offensive Pokemon you can have, don't forget his Rampardos form!

He's more of a Glass Cannon than a Tank. Tanks can take hits while Cranidos can't. He's a danger in Little Cup, I have to admit.

You forget Rampardos. His defense increases, which makes Rampardos the best offensive and a little defensive Pokemon.

The subject was Cranidos and I told the truth. Rampardos's Defense becomes 60 base and Sp. Def becomes 50 base, so I hardly consider him a bit more defensive. The only good it'll do to survive in Competitive is if it's in Sandstorm, and that's only if it doesn't get hit by a Hydro Pump.

I agree with your Hydro Pump, as it is a water based attack and has a weakness, and yes this article was simply for Cranidos. But consider the facts, Paradox. Cranidos makes a good addition to the team only if you prefer more heavier types of Pokemon with power moves. Take Zen Headbutt for example. With it's power being in the 100 range, it has the compacity to get the enemy's HP down significantly enough for him to finish the considered Pokemon off. Yet however, the Pokemon has the chance to recouperate and launch and devastating attack of its own, so I'll agree with you. If I understanded EV's a bit more, I would have posted thoughs. Thank you Paradox for your helpful criticism and I will most likely post another one of these sometime today, if not now.

The power of Zen Headbutt is 80...

Also, your point of saying that it's a great addition to the team is solely based on opinion. I think it's a waste of space. Also, I was talking about Rampardos because you changed to subject to Rampardos.

Ok yeah my mistake on the Zen headbutt, but still Rampardos and Cranidos are good kinda.
