Pokemon Analysis

Overview
Tier List Explanation

A plethora of recent buffs from a rather generous sync grid to being the first Legendary free-to-play sync pair with both EX and a Mega Evolution has in recent times won the hearts of many fans of the original villain and the original popular Legendary Pokemon. Despite the overall lack of consistent Special Defense debuffers that can pair with Giovanni due to his reliance Psychic Terrain and Special Attack support, Critical Strike 3 alone is enough to put Giovanni’s output to near N and Zekrom’s levels with his sync move, which lacks the BP penalty that other Mega pairs typically possess. Smarty-Pants makes his nuke even more devastating, though it requires Palentine’s Dawn to reliably be maxed out, and faces competition with compositions that prefer to raise Bianca’s critical-hit-rate for more overall value. Despite these newfound qualities, Giovanni retains the flaw of being reliant on an outside source to maximize his Special Attack despite having an extremely robust innate stat himself, making his compositions very stunted in comparison to the more flexible nature of the sync pairs in higher tiers.
