#687 Malamar

It lures prey close with hypnotic motions, then wraps its tentacles around it before finishing it off with digestive fluids.

Wow that Pokedex entry.

I’m putting up Malamar in celebration of the Splatoon2 Global Testfire. I’m looking forward to the main game!

Anyway, Malamar has a unique way of evolution: it evolves from Inkay by levelup (after level 30) when the 3DS is held upside down.

I had a Malamar on my Sabrina team (all psychic). It’s very useful as an Aegislash counter. Its ability, Contrary, which inverts stat modifiers, means I can Night Slash all I want at a King’s Shield and gain Attack instead of lose Attack. It also has Topsy-Turvy, which is useful against Bellydrummers and bulky Pokemon. Contrary also works really well with Superpower, increasing its Attack and Defense instead of lowering them.
