Alomomola (ママンボウ) is the 100th Pokémon in the Unova Pokédex. It is a Water-Type, and it is known as the Caring Pokémon.

Alomomola can have one of two Abilities: Healer, which has a 30% chance of healing itself or an Allied Pokémon from a Status Condition if itself or an Allied Pokémon are afflicted by one; or Hydration, which heals its Status problems whilst it is raining. Its Hidden Ability is Regenerator, which restores up to one-third of its Maximum HP each time it is switched out of a battle.

Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

In Generation VI, Alomomola resides in the RarelyUsed (RU) tier of competitive battling. Alomomola is one of the tier's best mixed walls with its ridiculously high HP stat, high defense, and great typing. It also has a great defensive ability in Regenerator and Wish to keep itself healthy and provide other Pokémon with recovery if needed. These traits allow it to check a number of threats, such as Sneasel, Flygon, and Mega Glalie. However, Alomomola suffers from having horrible offensive prowess, having to rely on Scald burns and Knock Off to do any sort of damage while being easy set-up bait for other Pokémon. It also faces competition from Jellicent and Slowking for a bulky water role, although Alomomola has Wish and higher physical defense than both of them.

Alomomola is also a usable option in the Underused (UU), Overused (OU), and Uber tiers competitive battling. In UU and OU, Alomomola's massive HP and good defense allows it to act as a mixed wall by being able to invest heavily in its poor Special Defense. Alomomola's massive Wishes can support a team very well while Regenerator allows for it to act as a defensive pivot. While Alomomola faces competition in UU and OU for a bulky water role, its distinctive traits in high physical defense and big Wishes allow it to maintain a niche in those tiers. In Ubers, Alomomola is a dedicated physical wall as it cannot tank most of the special attacks in the Uber tier. It can check Pokémon like Ho-oh and provide Wish support, and unlike many of the other Wish supporters in the tier, it focuses primarily on checking physical attackers. In all three tiers, Alomomola's greatest flaw is its utter lack of offensive prowess, being easy set-up, Taunt, or Substitute bait.
