Part 65: Evolution Event 4

We've reached the level marker to start using Exploud by the music links (did you notice that?), but how is it in battle? Well, pretty good. Getting Hyper Beam on evolution is pretty good and while Hyper Voice is a distant wish, Return is a fine choice. Since it has equalling good attacking stats that are high enough to matter, you can pick any TM you can think of, from Ice Beam, Overheat, Shadow Ball, Shock Wave and Earthquake and fill in the blanks the rest of your team doesn't fill. Its large HP stat also boost up its defenses a bit, but it will be taking a fair bit of damage, especially from Fighting types. Still, for an early game pick that takes a bit of work, it's definitely a fine choice.
