I’ve recently caught two 98% Reshiram with very similar stat spreads, and I’m a little lost at which one would be the best investment to level up given my unique Pokemon approach:
As you can see, the stat spreads are VERY similar here. I uploaded both screenshots to Poke Genie to see how they compare, and it didn’t really answer my question:
The one on the left maxes out at 4029 CP and 173 HP.
The one on the right maxes out at 4029 CP and 173 HP.
This leads me to believe that the non-weather boosted one on the left is the smarter investment since it has 15 Defense while having the same HP amount as the one on the right. However, I looked at the Pokemon GO Database and it states that the max HP of Reshiram is 174, and that’s only the case with a perfect stat Reshiram. Is that true, or is that an error on the part of the database?
Regardless of that answer, is my analysis correct that the non-boosted one has the strongest potential due to having 15 Defense? It seems logical to think that the one on the left is at least “functionally perfect.” I’m not concerned about candy and stardust cost. I just want to make sure I’m making the wisest choice.
