Wailord, The Float Whale Pokémon. Wailord is the largest identified Pokémon known to exist. It swims languorously in the vast open sea. It eats a massive amount of food at once while swimming. When chasing prey, it herds them by leaping out of the water and makes a huge splash. It is breathtaking to sea it jump out of the sea when in it's pods.

Strategy Using Wailord

Wailord is a Pokemon of incredibly high HP, but poor defenses. However, this doesn't make Wailord all that bad, it can learn Amnesia, and together with its high HP, this could prove quite useful.
Use Rest to recover that large amount of HP, and with the boosted special defense from Amnesia, it should take more special hits. Wailord is a good Pokemon to use against any special sweepers that might try to overpower your team.
It has average offensive stats too, so it can use both special and physical attacks. The chesto berry will help when Wailord uses rest, curing the sleep status, which will then allow you to maybe use more amnesia's or the offensive moves it has here (surf and Ice beam).
I've used this Pokemon before, and yes, I've used a similar moveset to this and it hasn't let me down. A hazer would be a good counter to this moveset, or just attack with physical attacks to defeat Wailord.
Wailord would've been much better if it had better defenses. It would've made an excellent tank if it did. Anyways, I still like Wailord and would use him, no matter what stats he had.
