Pokémon GO Wailmer and Pokémon GO Wailord are known as “Whale Pokémon”, but are also known as the tallest Pokémon in existence.
Unfortunately, Wailord Max CP is merely 2258, it’s ATK is 175, DEF 87 and STA is 340. We’re talking Snorlax levels of Stamina here, with rough damage output of a Lanturn. Not bad for a whale, eh.
Wailord in the Pokémon GO meta
Yet another budget Vaporeon. Mostly comparable to Lanturn, but without the Electric part, Wailord is expected to be a mediocre addition to the Pokémon GO meta.
Keep in mind that Wailord will have an advantage over ground, rock, and fire type opponents.
Wailord is not one of the lucky few who gets a mega evolution. So, this is pretty much everything we can get out of this giant Pokémon.
