About This Quiz

Have you ever wondered how well you'd do if you were a battling Pokémon?

Pokémon battles are cool and nerdy all at once, which is the perfect combination. Each Pokémon character has a certain amount of abilities that they use during battles; these are also known as stats. If you were a Pokémon, you would have your own stats that would let you know how much of each ability you might have to help you in battle.

But you obviously want to win. How would you stack up to all of the other Pokémon when it comes to stats? And how would they tie in with your own personality? HP stands for "Hit Points;" this shows how much damage that you as a Pokémon could take on before fainting. It shows how tough you are and how much you can endure. "Attack" is all about dealing damage; this stat is all about how aggressive you are and how effective you are when deciding to go on offense. Then you have "defense," which is all about how easily you get away from damage when someone tries to attack you. Another big one is "speed;" if you have a lot of speed, you're going to make a move before anyone else.

Take this quiz, and we'll let you know what your best stat would be if you were a Pokémon. Don't worry, if you faint, we'll wait.
