Is Cresselia worth powering up? Maybe.
Despite having a low attack stat, Cresselia has access to the strongest pair of psychic-type attacks in the game, Confusion and Future Sight. While as an attacker it’s outclassed by Alakazam and Espeon who can have the same moveset, it can still hold its own relatively well. But the main draw of Cresselia is its huge defense and stamina stats. While it can’t act as a Gym defender due to its legendary nature, it can act as a bulky counter to Pokemon like Machamp and Gengar. That being said, Lugia does Cresselia’s job better despite having a worse Quick Move because of its much higher attack and defense.
