Baltoy and Claydol

Claydol Pokemon GO

Pokémon GO Baltoy evolves into a Pokémon GO Claydol (Max CP 1782). These “Clay Doll Pokémon” have a dual type of ground and psychic.

Claydol doesn’t really have much to boast about. Overall, its stats are simply average. Call it a “good enough” Pokémon if you will. With a max CP of mere 1782 and ATK (140), we shouldn’t expect much out this Pokémon. As a consolation, Claydol does have rather high DEF (236).

Claydol in the Pokémon GO meta

Seeing that Claydol is the Pokémon family known to have a very interesting ground and psychic type and such low Max CP, it’s a little disappointing that Claydol will not live up to the expectations what the cartoons have created.

It is what is — a big boring Pokémon clay pot. We need abilities or a different CP formula. Fast.

Keep in mind that Claydol is a good match against fighting, poison, rock and other psychic type opponents.
