Tagg's Xatu

From We Are All Pokémon Trainers
Jump to: navigation, search

Xatu is in a word, strange. Tagg's oldest active team member (In terms of seniority, since Sentinel is far older than he is.) he was caught at the Ruins of Alph when Tagg was 11, apparently because he felt that it was his destiny to. Xatu is also a master of Teleport, and is capable of using it for cross-region travel if Tagg doesn't feel like walking or flying.

Personality

Xatu is a very mysterious mon, he often talks in riddles, trolls, and appears to be playing a long chess game with certain humans and Pokémon alike, though despite appearances he is on the side of good. However, despite being on the side of good, he is not afraid to manipulate others if necessary in order to have things go better for everyone, as best shown with his manipulation of Team Taxonomy, Team Nova, and Abigail during the course of PMD-R.

Xatu's personal philosophy can be best described as "Better to be disliked and useful than loved and useless".

Details

  • Age: 15
  • Birthday: May 18, 2001
  • Met: Ruins of Alph, Johto (Natu)
  • Ability: Magic Bounce
  • Ball: Poké

Battle Strategy

Most people would believe that Xatu's teleportation abilities would make him a poor battler fit only for transportation. They'd be quite wrong, as the only reason Tagg doesn't use Xatu more often is simply because he'd be too broken. Xatu can use Miracle Eye to get past the defenses of Dark types, and knows a variety of moves for getting past a variety of opponents. He can also attack with high precision using his beak to attack vital spots. Magic Bounce means that status moves will simply be deflected unto their users.

Xatu can also use Teleport to simply transport something or someone into the air and have them slam into the earth from several stories or from several thousand feet if necessary.
