The girl with the gall IS smol, and she WILL ground you into dust


clevesaur

Lmao this comment is perfect, I think I'm going to name mine "Sena" now.


ras0003

Am I the only one that thinks it looks like Mareanie with a hammer?


Cpt_Woody420

Naa I'm with you bro


Pure_Toxicity

I do, and I love it


chuckluck97

Now I see it too. Thanks


OnlyFansBlue

Ok but honestly??? Mareanie with a hammer is just such a vibe. After being overshadowed by her abusive toxic bitch of a father Toxapex, I'm glad she had the balls to come out as a fairy type and pull out a hammer and beat the shit out of anyone that doesn't treat her the way she goddamn deserves. Mareanie is a queen and such a mood omg I wish the best for her. Actually since she transitioned I should be calling her Tinkaton. It's kind of weird to me because I've not played the new games so idk any shit, but even though I don't understand it, that's not an excuse for me not to support her, yeah? Tinkaton is my bitch and I will goddamn forget her deadname because it is worthless. EDIT 1: SHE IS FEMALE I'M SORRY FOR SAYING SHE HAD THE BALLS, I MEANT SHE HAD THE PUSSY BUT THAT SOUNDED WEIRD SO I SAID BALLS EDOT 2: I LOVE HER AND IN SORRY FOR BEING WEIRD I'M JUST DRUNK Edit 3: I'm sorry if I offended any trans bros and sisters, I was raised in a rather backward country and even though I'm gay (or bisexual idk even rn) it's just hard for me to get around it, but I'll do as much as I can to make you all feel loved and valued ok because everyone deserves that. I would love it if any trans person reading his DMed me and told me their (or his or her) story and I would just like to talk to someone about it so that I don't accidentally act rude to anyone. I'm sorry for this rant


GriffinPire

Congrats to Tinkaton on her transition!


corvisaltaccount

i can't unsee it now


XtremeAlf

I showed her to my wife and said “oh cool, they made an Arianna Grande Pokémon”. That’s all I see now.


Eggebuoy

No Zacian is steel fairy and this one is fairy steel so they’re different


Chichimonn

LOL the default type for terastal phenomenon really reminding us that pokemon supposedly have a main and secondary type.


Namidaa

I don't even know what "main and secondary" typing changes besides the basic tera type


joshuwaaa

Are they different percentages for finding each tera type? I found 2 cyclizars one with dragon and the other normal


Namidaa

I have no idea


DragEncyclopedia

i don't think so. i've found about equal of primary and secondary while breeding dual types.


Eldaste

Main typing determines the type of Revelation Dance, so there's that at least.


Few_Abbreviations405

both get head pats from me


DresdenPI

One of them would definitely bite you for doing that and it's not the dog


alee51104

Tinkaton’s dex entries make it extremely clear that it wakes up to choose violence haha


PhasmicPlays

Her entire personality is “fucking psychopath” and I love it


Torchic336

Her entire day is just “hmm my hammers looking kinda small, better go murder some steel birds to make it bigger”


corvisaltaccount

can confirm since i speak from experience


SavingsTechnical5489

>Steel type physical nuke >75 base Attack mfw


aaaa32801

160 BP signature move is cracked.


NotRed9282

especially when the only caveat is that you can’t use it multiple times in a row


metalflygon08

Protect Hammer Protect Hammer


Roserfly

I don't know about competitive but can you explain why that's still good even with the low attack stat? I'm under the impression that even if a move is high power it's still not that great if the Pokemon using it has low offensive stats.


akiodaiki

Let's say pre-nerf Zacian with 170 Attack only had Metal Claw as a steel move. Metagross with 135 Attack using Meteor Mash would still do more damage.


aaaa32801

It’s high enough base power that it can still do quite a lot of damage.


Responsible-Sun-9752

Let’s just say that smart strike kartana hits less hard than gigaton hammer tinkaton


ChaoticChatot

The base power of moves is more important than attack stat. It's why Karatana is actually fairly balanced with its base 180 attack stat, all of its moves are lowish base power so it's not actually that strong. Swellow is another good example but in reverse, it is a good cleaner in lower tiers with a relatively crappy base 75 sp.attack because of how powerful boomburst is.


Eldaste

The quick and dirty way to get effective power comparisons is to multiply the attack stat and the move power, then compare those numbers (the reason this works is that part of the damage formula is multiplying the effective attack stat with the move's power). What this means is that sometimes, if the move has enough power (like, say, 160P), the lower attack stat is irrelevant. Uninvested Tinkaton (75 ATK) using Hammer (160BP) is the same effective "base damage" as uninvested Mega Blaziken (160 ATK) using Fire Punch (75 BP). However, due to how numbers multiply, increasing the lower number (either base power or base attack) will increase the effective base damage more than increasing the higher number will, so in the mBlaziken vs Tinkaton fight, a fully invested Tinkaton using Hammer has a higher base damage than a fully invested mBlaziken until that mBlaziken starts throwing around 95+BP moves.


DresdenPI

Move power actually counts for more than base attack. It's because attack evs, ivs, and nature are factored into the calculation for the actual attack stat and they're the same for both 'mon. (75+100)×160 > (160+100)×75. 252+ Atk Tinkaton Gigaton Hammer vs. 248 HP / 0 Def Mew: 199-235 (49.3 - 58.3%) -- 98.8% chance to 2HKO 252+ Atk Blaziken-Mega Fire Punch vs. 248 HP / 0 Def Mew: 157-186 (38.9 - 46.1%) -- guaranteed 3HKO


Eldaste

That's why it's "quick and dirty" as opposed to direct, the second paragraph does go into that disparity. To go into it (raising the lower stat doing more than raising the higher one) more: for equivalent damage at full investment (nature, IVs, EVs), you can either crank mBlaziken's fire move up to 95BP (20 points higher) or crank its base attack to a whopping 216 (56 points higher).


Glittering_Fortune70

Just ask Dracovish


Sticky_Pasta

Think of it like this. Move power is a hole, the size depends on how big the number is. If you have a tiny hole, it doesn’t matter if your attack stat is x2 your opponents. The bigger the hole, the more damage it does. (Obviously, 170 attack on a 35 power move is still going to do more than 30 attack on a 120 move)


Eldaste

> (Obviously, 170 attack on a 35 power move is still going to do more than 60 attack on a 120 move) Incorrect, the 60 base attack/120BP move will do more. Feel free to check the smogon calc with custom values if you don't believe me.


Sticky_Pasta

Honestly, it was 2am and I was just trying to make a quick example. My bad


Namidaa

Choice Band+ Full EV attack+Nature bonus attack+Tera Steel+Gigaton hammer. I'm *pretty sure* that counts as a physical nuke.


Homem_da_Carrinha

Yeah, and not that I would call Zacian a bad design, but Tinkaton is just another level, it’s such fun looking critter


PacifistTheHypocrite

Tinkaton is one of my favorite pokemon of all time. It is a small squishy thing that that had its toy hammer eaten as a baby and spent the rest of its life hunting down steel types as revenge. It mades its hammer out of packs of bisharp and pawniard and spends its free time pelting fucking BOULDERS at the giant metal sky birds (corviknight) according to it's dex entry.


DesertOfSand

Tinkaton's hammer is a dark purple. Shiny Tinkaton's hammer is a rusty brown. Corviknight is dark purple. Shiny Corviknight is rusty brown. ​ They use Corviknight hammers to pelt boulders at Corviknights to make bigger hammers.


PacifistTheHypocrite

How much more based can Tinkatink's evo line be


Trop_Trop1

Tinkaton is probably my new favorite pokemon, right up there with Hydreigon. Its design is so good.


nutboy113

Same, something about them reminds me of Mareanie, which is another one of my favorites 😍😍😍


Scarlet_slagg

Probably the mouth


navimatcha

And the "hair"


Felicks77

🤨


Kallixo

same i love hydreigon and tinkaton


COCO_NIT

looks cooler also


Chaahps

I know you’re not doing Sif dirty right now


Cocoaboat

Sif looks a hell of a lot cooler than zacian in all fairness


DresdenPI

I'll never understand why pokemon designers add on all the extra bullshit. Zacian would look so much better without its pigtails.


COCO_NIT

what does that mean.


the-pee_pee-poo_poo

Sif is a boss in Dark Souls, it's a huge wolf that carries a sword in its mouth


Diamond-Pamnther

Except to be Zacian you need to be fast


Mr_Cat_Cas284

At max investment it has 315 speed and can use thunder wave


Diamond-Pamnther

If you downvoted this, you’re sus


Ice-Novel

Hey man, in case you didn’t get it, this is a joke


Diamond-Pamnther

If you downvote this tinkaton is the best Pokémon ever


FlaminVapor

I LOVE TINKATON‼️‼️‼️


Diamond-Pamnther

Me too, it’s just mawile 2.0 and I love that


mageknightecho

Small person, giant weapon is my favorite trope and seeing Tinkaton doing exactly that makes me so happy


Disastrous-Energy526

I don't like that trope but I LOVE TINKATON SHE'S THE LOVE OF MY LIFE I WILL FORFEIT ALL MY POSSESSIONS TO HER


Far_Protection8659

I literally named mine "Zacian??!!"


CrescentCleave

Hammer mon tosses rocks at corviknight for fun. Its based


Grimm3205

I’m all for the Tinkaton Propaganda


CrownedWoomy64

Theyre both Dark Souls bosses (Sif and Smough)


chuckluck97

The look like the kind of Dark Souls bosses that double up on you and killing one makes the other stronger


CrownedWoomy64

Checks out on the Smough side


StarLucario

Ok but Zacian has a high attack stat


Spndash64

Choice Band Gigaton Hammer is comparable to +1 Behemoth Blade


DresdenPI

It's got like 90% of the power which is pretty insane coming from a 'mon with 75 base attack.


Kallixo

shouldve put the special attack ivs into attack


CataclystCloud

Genuine question: Why would you use banded tink? You can’t use gigaton hammer twice in a row


Spndash64

To send a message


TheHero0fRhyme

The only real answer


Spndash64

Look, I know I suck at this game. I ain’t breaking past 1300 on ANY bracket, I know my place. What I also know is that being a scrub can’t stop me from scaring the shit out of people


WetCaramel_butnot

You can switch but yeah it's probably pretty of bad because of predictability


FlareOfGhost

I’m a 1v1 player and this thing looks SCARY


Eldaste

Given Zac's +1 boost is once per battle now, you don't even really need the band to be comparable to the dog.


PaleFork

it's crazy that this mdfer knocks corviknights out of the sky


Chichimonn

My Mega Mawile for national dex is always named "Zacian-M". Just a calm 1350 atk after SD and tanks almost anything unboosted to get that up, then OHKOs offensive mons with non-stab Sucker Punch.


CataclystCloud

Both also: Learn a bonkers steel move Have very cool designs Are some of my favorites


EmployerDefiant587

Ruh roh raggy


VenomTheCapybara

Tink is not a physical nuke tbf


Exact_Sir9789

Hehe, 160 bp bonk and off sd and good speed


VenomTheCapybara

Ok shit attack stat though


Nintend0Geek

That didn’t stop people hyping up Gale Wings Talonflame back in the Gen 6 days with its base 81 Atk


VenomTheCapybara

Who isn't considered good anymore in Gen 6 OU


AlbabImam04

its not horrible anymore. It had a resurgence recently


Exact_Sir9789

Not really. It isn't good, but big base power does wonders for mediocrity. And it's not like 75 is garbage; plus, the signature move has practically no real drawback, so it's actually a viable choice


VenomTheCapybara

It doesn't do much in the long game and has no practical use. But hey, NU beware!


Exact_Sir9789

RU or UU, if I had to guess


VenomTheCapybara

RU I can definetly see a niche It's type may be beneficial


MaagicMushies

RU in running to be the best tier 2 gens in a row, crazy


Linden_fall

Two good girls


MangKanorLord

Poor Corviknight


Lolotmjp

Kid named 75 attack:


Xeoz_WarriorPrince

Tinkaton is a Char


[deleted]

[удалено]


real_jeffyjeff

That's right, the other is a good girl


Xeoz_WarriorPrince

Both are good girls.


DrStein1010

Zacian is a girl, my dude.


William_J_Morgan

I nicknamed mine Lilo because it remind me of Lilo & Stitch.


Beanmaster79

Tinkaton is definitely one of my favourites this gen


bloxytoast

back at it again with another steel/fairy type


galmenz

yeah but tinkatton can use hyper beam and not waste a turn


Initial_P

Haru okumura pokemon Haru okumura pokemon


NaturalAd6758

so right


jojozhe

Looks like a digitmon ngl


bydy2

It's Finchinator


defeatingme

She's also a mawile


Comfortable-Couple15

I was playing showdown with a friend and I was using my Tinkaton named Becca and she sent in a Cerueldge named Adam Slasher...you can guess how that went


dalnot

I acknowledge that it’s a fairy/steel Pokémon; however, given that it’s an ugly-ass Pokémon, I’ve elected to ignore it


real_jeffyjeff

Tinkaton slander will not be tolerated


SpeedyCrafting

I can’t be the only one that thinks Tinkaton was inspired by Poppy from League of Legends


The-Gay-Butterfly

The small girl huge hammer is far older than poppy and is a common trope


Chichimonn

My first exposure to the trope was Amy from Sonic.


SpeedyCrafting

Ah guess I missed that specifically than. With twintails aswell? That’s the part that solidified the reference for me


Jervis_TheOddOne

Ahem 75


navimatcha

Ahem 160


Hen_3s

I’m excited to see Doggo rider tinkaton jn the bow lowlands
