Pokémon Scarlet and Violet reintroduced a Generation II Pokémon. If he was one of the fighters that nobody wanted in his team at the time, he has changed a lot today.
A real Christmas story
Once upon a time, there was a little red and white penguin / owl that was useless. Yes, it took no less than 23 years for Delibird, first introduced in Pokémon Gold and Silver, to finally have its heyday.
The target of a lot of jokes within the Pokémon gaming community for more than two decades, Delibird no longer makes anyone laugh.
As you probably already know, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet introduced new types of Pokémon, the Paradox Pokémon. These are monsters that come from the past in the Scarlet version, and from the future in the Violet version.
All located in Paldea Crater , the Paradox Pokémon are unique in that they are genderless and do not evolve or pre-evolve (i.e., they are not the evolution of no Pokemon). These Future Pokémon also all (except one) possess the Quantum Charge Ability .
Delibird therefore had the right to its Paradox form — and a good old glow up by the way.
Iron Bundle has more than solid statistics, since it displays 136 in Speed, 124 in Defense and 114 in Attack, as well as a double type Ice / Water which makes it less vulnerable than its counterpart of the Gen 2. It was even recently banned from the competitive Pokémon EV scene by Smogon.
