Oh, hey, look at that! Another Normal-type Pokemon! What makes Skitty different from the other contenders? Well, it is exclusive to White 2 for one. It also has the interesting Normalize ability (as well as Cute Charm), which turns all of its attacks into Normal-type attacks, effectively giving them a +50% power up (although taking away from any weaknesses).

Delcatty's stats are very lacking, though; they make Raticate look good, so that's not a good sign. It gets Sing, Copycat, Charm, Faint Attack, Wake-Up Slap, and Covet as far as interesting attacks go, though it also picks up Double-Edge for "massive" damage and Captivate way later on. It learns no new moves after evolution (via a Moon Stone), though, so beware! It can learn a whole ton of TMs, like Thunderbolt, Ice Beam, Shadow Ball, Charge Beam, and Dig, though, even with Normalize, it lacks the stats to make use of them.

In the end, Delcatty is easily outclassed by Watchog and Raticate, and you know you're having a bad day when you're outclassed by Raticate. Definitely avoid Delcatty unless you have a thing for cats or cutesy Pokemon.
