    Analysis: Bad Egg

    Bad Egg

    HP: 253
    Attack: 42
    Defense: 42
    Sp.Attack: 42
    Sp.Defense: 42
    Speed: 44
    Tier: Fundex UU


    In all seriousness though, Bad Egg is definitely not a good Pokemon. Its only good stat is its gargantuan HP, only beaten by Chuck Norris, Serpent of Chaos, Weegee, and Blissey. The rest of its stats are much lower.

    "The Always-Hatching Egg"
    Bad Egg @ Choice Band / Choice Scarf / Life Orb / Air Balloon / Focus Sash
    Trait: (No Ability)
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
    Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk) / Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Super Glitch
    - ThunderPunch
    - Rage
    - a NORMAL move

    This is the extent of Bad Egg's movepool. I'll still go through its moves, anyway. Super Glitch is Bad Egg's strongest move, with a base 100 power plus STAB. ThunderPunch is the classic Bad Egg move, but doesn't hit a whole lot. Rage can be useful if Bad Egg survives a hit and moves before the opponent, what with boosting attack power. a NORMAL move is a more reliable Normal-type move than Rage, but only has 8 PP. Choice Scarf can be used to give Bad Egg an illusion of speed, Choice Band can make its attacks hurt decently hard, Life Orb lets it switch moves and still hit somewhat hard, Air Balloon gives it a safe switch in, and Focus Sash lets it take a hit.

    Checks and Counters

    Essentially everything counters Bad Egg. Its attack is low enough that the two highest Defense stat 'mons in the tier, Tenshi and Sakuya, can wall Bad Egg near infinitely and KO with Hisou Sword or Killer Doll, respectively. Bad Egg is also ridiculously slow (but surprisingly fast for an egg), so hard hitters such as Samus and Suika can hit Bad Egg hard enough to KO it.
