Shuckle has absurdly high defensive stats in general and those got boosted to be four times as high. In addition, he's paralyzed which means you can't poison or burn him, which does percentage damage over time

For example, I was doing a randomized Pokemon run and I didn't lose to all of the extremely strong late-game Pokemon that everybody seemed to have. I died to the boss's Shuckle which just WOULDN'T. DIE.

Actually I'll help explain Shuckle since you don't know Pokemon at all.

Like I just said, he has extraordinarily high defense. Look at his stat distribution (larger bars mean higher stats): https://pokemondb.net/pokedex/shuckle

As far as I know, those are the highest defensive stats of any Pokemon in the game, and he's just a turtle living in a rock. He can't die. You can't kill him. This is especially true with his rare ability Contrary which reverses any stat changes (increases become decreases and vice versa) and his rare move Shell Smash which raises attack a ton and lowers defense a bunch. With this combo, it's trivial to boost his defense to insane levels like in the image.

He's noteworthy for a another reason. There's a move that can make his attack and defense swap values... you can probably see where this is going. If you set things up exactly right, he can do over 700 million damage in one attack. Keep in mind that the maximum HP that Pokemon ever get it like, 1000. It's a very specific scenario, but that's absolutely insane.

You put your RESOLVE HAT back on, which conveniently is the same hat as your NORMAL HAT.

The image is probably Acupressure Shuckle (without Contrary obviously). Though yes Shell Smash Shuckle is another (better) gimmick that exists.

Also Shuckle apparently has the same base physical defense as both Mega Aggron and Mega Steelix. (Though I wouldn't have guessed that either if I hadn't just looked it up)
Oh woops. Putting Advokaiser in my sig like this until I think of something more clever

Update: busy, haven't really had time to do much with this. I'm doing all the writeups beforehand, so the actual ranking topic should have very little downtime, but it means the wait will be somewhat long in between topics.

I played a game of Renowned Explorers yesterday. I was hoping Twitch would save the vod so you could look at it later, but sadly I hadn't hit the right settings for it to do that because I'm a noob.
