Many Pokemon in Pokemon X and Y have had their Stats updated. Alakazam is one of these Pokemon. Alakazam's Base Special Defense Stat has increased 10 Points, from 85 to 95. Everyone knows Alakazam is a pure special attacker. It would have been better if they increase it's base speed or special attack (something that would have made Alakazam even better).

Pokemon With Updated Stats: Jumpluff

Many Pokemon in Pokemon X and Y have had their Stats updated. Jumpluff is one of these Pokemon. Jumpluff's Base Special Defense Stat has increased 10 Points, from 85 to 95. I guess this okay. It doesn't do much, but no 10 Point Base Stat Increase for Jumpluff would.
