I'm good with that. Azelf isn't an Uber as far as I know, but I'm taking her off my team anyway to replace with Sharpedo, Vaporeon or possibly my Kabutops from LG; Azelf is a lake Pokemon, not an Ocean Pokemon. Don't get me wrong, I love my Azelf; her defense simply doesn't match my standards. Yes, she does hit hard, and is lightning fast, but she can't take a single Crunch, and her movepool is lacking. I don't use Selfdestruct or Explosion. Ever. I don't ever sacrifice my Pokemon. Also, the only Psychic Pokemon I feel 100% comfortable using for some reason are Mewtwo, Lugia and Cresselia.
Which do you suggest I replace my Azelf with: Sharpedo, Vaporeon or Kabutops? I'm trading a Ditto for Sharpedo over GTS right now, my Vaporeon is level 20-something and my Kabutops is level 76; 8 levels higher than my other Pokemon, and levels up quickly due to migration.
EDIT: Nevermind. I just caught an Absol and decided to level it up instead; every other hit from him is critical, and he's gaining wicked EVs like crazy! It's going to P-W-N the Elite Four!
