How Much Useful is My Chikorita?

However, it is not a good choice when a Competitive scenario is concerned because it is a starter type pokemon and It is not a good Grass-type pokemon in competitive but you can use it for normal gameplay to take as a challenge.

The evolution form of Chikorita i.e., Meganium has a good defensive technique with a bold nature. However it’s not a great pokemon in Gym offence, but it is very good in gym defence.

It can be able to perform a good supportive position in a battle. Chikorita’s impressive move pool grants it Bullet Seed, Leech Seed, Grass Whistle, and Counter, which might be usable with special team support.
