Pokemon Yellow

Part 122: POKEDEX #056: Mankey

HP:40 Atk:80 Def:35 Spd:70 Spc:35 Total:260

It's a kung fu monkey, something you've never seen depicted in children's cartoons. This thing hits fast and hard. And then dies because it has terrible defensive stats and a Special stat you will always stay away from. But 80 Attack at this part of the game is a crap-ton and we will use it maliciously. Also, it's one of the fastest things we'll be encountering for a wee while. Don't pick up in R/G/B though, it has a pathetic movepool and we'll need to still fix that, because hot damn, Fighting was a shit type back in the day. Speaking of past games, one of the few times the Green sprite is better than the Blue. And then Yellow trumps it. As always.
