Strategy Using Seel

Seel has better stats in defense and HP, although they are still low. This pokemon also has a small movepool and there isn't much to work with. Encore can be learnt through breeding and is quite annoying to your opponent, who may make a mistake and use a move that Seel has a resistance too, making it repeat for 3-6 turns. Toxic makes a re-appearance on Seel, since it badly poisons your opponent it is quite useful(watch of for pokemon with Synchronize). Substitute allows for more turns to pass without Seel receiving too much damage, this allows Toxic to do more damage in the process. Ice beam, is a last resort move, if this is your last pokemon on your team then you'll have to rely on Ice beam to do the majority of damage. Ice beam covers its Grass weakness and has a chance of freezing your opponent, which will also give you more time to attack. The EV's are focused on increasing Seel's ability to stay in battle, with these, Seel should be able to survive more hits. Make sure you evolve this pokemon to take full advantage of its stats and maybe replace one move with surf when it does. Overall, Seel, as an un-evolved pokemon, will have trouble against some of the faster, special sweepers commonly used.
