What do you think of Voltorb? At first glance he seems worthless, but has an interesting use... VOLTORB:lightningMP 3 29% - Explosion ** -Voltorb and all surrounding Pokemon are Knocked Out. 29% - Tackle (10) 29% - Spark (20) 13% - Miss 3 MP is always a good thing, you can manuver around quickly to get to the goal. But almost all of Voltorb's results are bad. Miss, and weak attacks, and one purple attack that KOs itself also. But since a pokemon can't get out of the PC until another takes its spot, If Voltorb explodes, it not only KOs your opponent, but gets your better pokemon out of the PC and back into play!
