“Reign Of Tyranitar”
Since Pokemon GO Generation 2 was released last February 17, 2017 there’s still a lot of excitement in the air…
As Poke Trainers come face to face with new “pocket monsters” spawning everywhere and battle Gyms to add New Poke Defenders.
The thrill in encountering new Pokemon’s in the wild or hatched thru eggs now gave the game a new boost as a number of Poke Trainers are back in the game again and many are out putting lures to catch new ones and fill up their Pokedex.
But I believe none is much more exciting as evolving your first “Blissey,”
…being able to get all evolution “Special ‘RARE’ Items,”
Special Item: Metal Coat
Special Item: Dragon’s Scale
Special Item: King’s Rock
Special Item: Up-Grade
Special Item: Sun’s Stone
…and of course, evolving the Monster of Terror, “Tyranitar!”
Special Item: Sun’s Stone
A lot of Poke Trainers saved up on their candies and Chansey’s for Generation 2 release to evolve the “High HP and Top Gym Defender, ‘Blissey!'”
A month since the release, one can always, that is, never fail to see “Blissey” in almost every Pokemon Gym available here in the City of Waterfalls… Iligan City, Philippines.
The Reign of the Monster of Terror “Tyranitar” has just begun as this one New Pokemon was just made available in Gen2 release…
Unlike Chansey that you’ll only be needing a number of candies to make Blissey.
First, …you’ll have to hatch a “Larvitar,” and consider yourself happy
or if you’ll catch a fully evolved “Tyranitar” in the Wild, you’re very lucky
or if it’s one “Pupitar” in the Wild you’ll catch then you are extremely lucky.
Other places are much luckier (or shall we say have more PokeStops), for only Six days passed since Gen 2 was released, “Tyranitar’s” with 2900+ CP were already found in their Poke Gym’s.
I haven’t even hatched my first “Larvitar” yet and here they are… already in PokeGym’s in another place… a place where I got my first “Larvitar and Swinub” sighting (too bad I failed to catch them both).
Guess, Poke Trainers there are just so lucky but like what is known…
“Pokemon GO” is all about getting up and about, travelling (especially for Regional’s, but hope Niantic will rotate them soon), that is what it’s all about.
Anyways, currently having caught or evolved “77 Pokemon’s” of the 100 New Pokemon’s made available for Generation 2…
a Month after its release is… let me just say…
For two days, March 15 and 16 seemed to be the culmination of what was called the “RUSH!”
Finally got my “Monster Of Terror” and the “Reign Of Tyranitar” commences.
However, most PokeGym’s are filled with “Blissey!”
Tyranitar to Blisseys: “…the cold shoulder eh?”
But for Tyranitar, you don’t see plenty… yet… as of now.
“Unofficial Count” for all Pokemon GO Team’s within the heart of Iligan City places Poke Trainer’s with Tyranitar’s at less than a “DOZEN” for now.
Team Instinct = 5
Team Valor = 3
No Tyranitar but the Account Holder has “Two” Tyranitar’s at 2k+ and 3k+ CP’s… didn’t find where he placed them at the time of writing this blog.
Team Mystic = 1
The “Reign Of Tyranitar” is here.
Now going back to “Blissey,” a lot of Pokemon GO Players today know that one PokeGym with several Blissey’s, three to begin with, is already hard to beat.
If it be a Level 3 to a Level 10 Pokemon Gym with at least 3 Blissey’s…
Taking it down “alone” would mean having several of your Pokemon’s fainting or the usual case, the “TIME” runs out before you could beat one high CP/HP “Blissey” Defender.
Brought down a Level 7 Gym once (alone) that was defended by:
a Vaporeon 2.5k+ CP (Water Gun/Hydro Pump),
a Rhydon 2.7k+ CP (Rock Smash/Megahorn),
a Snorlax 2.7k+ CP (Zen Headbutt/Body Slam),
a 2.8k+ CP Blissey (Pound/Psychic),
a Rhydon 2.9k+ CP (Mud Slap/Earthquake),
a Gyarados 3k+ CP (Bite/Dragon Pulse),
and a Dragonite 3k+ CP (Dragon Breath/Dragon Claw).
And I got stuck with Blissey!
Brought it down finally at the cost of “50+ fainted Pokemon Attackers”
From Battle XP’s… An average CP/HP Blissey with a Moveset of “Pound” and “Psychic” may only take “Three” Salvos of its Psychic Charge Move (if you take direct hits) in the course of battle… to make one of your 2k+ CP Attacking Pokemon Faint.
That is… if you don’t have the right “tank” Pokemon with the right MoveSets so to speak with enough CP to “Counter” one Blissey.
High CP/HP & Stamina – Blissey
An ardent Pokemon GO Player knows that “Blissey” has the highest in Stamina.
Max CP: 3219
Normal Pokemon are weak to Fighting
If you’re wondering what other kind of Pokemon is also very effective in beating “Blissey” check this out and see.
Thy battle scars thy testament…
Here’s what I discovered…
Let’s take a look at this little experiment of mine I like to share with Y’all.
Right Moves but Low CP Ursa’s
Here’s what it looks like using “Higher CP’s…*”
Let’s Get It On!
Down to half its CP, 1st Ursa fainted but it’s a win!
So… there you have it.
Hope you’ll enjoy this tip!
“Works for me.”
*Three things makes “Ursaring” very effective in battling Blissey.
1. It’s also a Normal Type “GOD Tier” Pokemon (Attack: 236, Defense: 144, Stamina: 180, Max CP: 2760)
2. It has Fighting/Steel Quick Move Sets
3. It has Fighting/Fairy/Normal Charge Move Sets
So if it’s a higher CP Blissey defending then use one with a high CP…
And it may take one, two or three Ursa’s…
but when the smoke clears…
“Reign of Tyranitar”
…you’ll surely evict that overstaying “Blissey.”
