In this series of posts, I'm going to highlight some of the best and worst Miscrits in the game, and why they are so good or bad. Hopefully this will help you with your teams. I'll rank the Miscrits from best to worst in each element, and give details to each Miscrit such as what kind of Miscrit it is (tanker, nuker, etc.) Oh yeah, and I'm not going to bother with the starter Miscrits (Flue, Flowerpiller, and Prawnja), since their dark versions are pretty much the same... but better. And one last thing, I'm not including Volcano Island Miscrits in here, like Slithero, Rockodile, Shroomer, and Scorcero because they're still largely unknown.
Okay, first of all, there's been some real big debates about which Earth Miscrits are the best, and it really is hard to decide because so many of the Earth Miscrits are good. But I think Digsy is the best because of its strong defenses, and its max Physical Attack. Strong buffs and debuffs, and Sandstorm add to the awesomeness.
With strong Health, and max Physical Attack and Defense, it is definitely one of the strongest Miscrits. Like Chris says sometimes, you only need one good attack (Physical/Elemental), but you should be strong in both defenses. Although Drilldent is very common, it's still one of the best Miscrits around, especially at level 10. Sandstorm and Sleep are also included in the package.
With epic Health and Physical Attack, plus strong Physical Defense, it's another great Miscrit. With Sandstorm and Sludge, you want Fossillia on your side. Sadly, its weak Speed brings Fossillia down a little bit.
Eggy is much like Fossillia, however it doesn't suffer from weak Speed. But it's unlikely its health will beat Fossillia, which is why I placed Eggy fourth. Also, Eggy doesn't have a negate element skill, but on the plus side it does have a Confuse skill.
With awesome Health and strong Physical Attack and Elemental Attack, it's a great Miscrit as well. However, it's unlikely that you'll get one - unless you're willing to pay the price... which I'm probably not. But overall, a great flexible attacker.
I regret putting Craggy 6th, because it deserves better - considering it's basically a Drilldent with weaker Physical Defense, but stronger Elemental Attack. It doesn't have a negate elemental skill, but it does have Bright Lights and Sleep.
Okay, here's where it gets to the non-elite Earth Miscrits in my opinion. Sledgehog is a Physical Miscrit, and with good rolls on Health its pretty strong. With Sleep, Sandstorm, and Sludge, its skill set isn't half bad as well.
With strong Health, Elemental Attack, and Physical Defense, it's pretty strong. And if you're willing to take chances, it's the Miscrit for you. Although it learns a 20 AP attack at level 10, it misses quite a lot, so it's a major risk. I'm not sure about its other skills, but I've heard that it only learns a few attacks through level 30, and Mace Tail, although with 30 AP, misses quite a bit too.
Although it has weak Health, its max Elemental Defense makes up for it. The majority of Miscrits are stronger in Elemental Attack, so having max Elemental Defense is good. Also, Croaky has 2 25 AP attacks which makes it more flexible.
A very average Elemental Miscrit, it's actually not too strong. However, at level 25 with Unbreakable and Recompose, plus a few heals and buffs, it becomes the biggest pain in the butt possible... and can possibly become unstoppable. But other than that, it's not that great.
Probably no doubt the weakest Earth Miscrit. Although it has strong Health and strong Elemental Attack, it has weak Elemental Defense which is real bad if it comes across a fast Wind Miscrit like Leggy. Sandstorm and Venom might come in handy, but it doesn't change my mind.
