Check-out these competitively viable Pokémon who share characteristics with Virgo in six star chart placements.
Sun in Virgo: Metagross
Metagross, like solar Virgo, achieves consistent results through a methodical approach. It has been used competitively and successfully for generations. Solar Virgo knows performing the same way often leads to better results. Likewise, Metagross will go ahead and spam Meteor Mash, it just might raise its attack stat!
Moon in Virgo: Scizor
Scizor represents lunar Virgo’s reactions and emotions. It’s a technician: it sticks to what it knows, and what has worked. Lunar Virgo is Scizor switching in and walling an opponent with Roost, yet also setting up with Swords Dance. Besides being excellent at what it does best, its weaknesses can make lunar Virgo fragile, like Scizor and its vulnerability to Fire-type attacks.
Mercury in Virgo: Magnezone
Mercurial virgo’s mind and communication are analytic. It seeks details, patterns, and methods. Magnezone’s ability to pivot in and out, take a hit, and return a finishing blow embody mercurial virgo’s process toward perfection.
Venus in Virgo: Gardevoir
Although present in all placements, the Venus placement exemplifies Virgo’s nurturing qualities. Gardevoir can be telepathically connected to its partner and even build them up with a Heal Pulse. Also, Venus speaks to a sign’s inner desires and motivations. Gardevoir embodies Virgo’s yearning for excellence and expanding prowess. Whether achieving this through a Calm Mind or through a Hyper Voice, it has a plan.
Mars in Virgo: Nidoking/Nidoqueen
A Mars placement brings out Virgo’s sheer force. It takes power from multiple sources, and maximizes their potential. Nidoking and Nidoqueen also represent the parental nature of Virgo in mars while simultaneously providing high powered attacks that get right to the point.
Ascendent Virgo (Rising): Klefki
Klefki, as ascendant Virgo, gives the impression of being driven by thoughtful details. Klefki sets the field with priority. Klefki acts as if following a checklist: light screen? Check. Reflect? Check. Spikes? Check. Ascendant Virgo and Klefki achieve success through careful and expedited preparation.
