Pokemon's First Appearance: Pokemon Gold, Silver & Crystal

Feraligatr being better than Typhlosion shouldn't come as a surprise. Although the former's base stat total is four points lower than the latter's, it can learn attacks for two of Typhlosion's weaknesses. (Where Typhlosion can only learn attacks for one of Feraligatr's weaknesses.) Feraligatr also has incredible speed, power and stamina. Sure, Feraligatr's attacks aren't that varied but its overall power helps it compete against most of the Pokemon on here.
