The Biology and Study of Galvantula
By Valentine LaCross
Galvantula is a Electric/Bug type Pokemon. Small and fast, their attacking arsenal is small at best, and useless at worst. For a fully evolved Pokemon, their base stats are unimpressive. They rely heavily on their electrified web, hoping to trap opponents and strike while they're incapacitated. Galvantulas are heavily effected by attacks of the Fire and Rock type, and resist Electric, Grass, Fighting, and Steel types. Which is a good assortment of resistances.
From both watching her training, and fighting in a serious match, her strategy doesn't differ much from her feral brothers. Apart from the fact that she does not go for the final kill herself, as she is the healer, she allows others to do it – only hindering opponents. She used the web to not only slow our movements, but also to track our positions. I feel that her web abilities were severely underused, and with proper training and strategy, could have been much more of a threat to us than it was. For example, instead of limiting her web usage to the ground, she could have shot it at our hands to stop many of our attacks outright (Though, it didn't seem like she took the match all the seriously anyway).
