I don't understand how you've got 320 points.
This is easier to answer if you put the remainder of your team. And this is allowed guys.
Why is this flagged?
What game is this (it looks like gen 1)

Ok so Charizard and Pikachu are good for speed sweeping so I'm going to suggest


He has higher defenses which allow him to take a hit better than Hitmonlee. He still has a good attack stat with base 105.

Suggested in-game moveset,

  • Fire Punch
  • Ice Punch
  • Thunder Punch
  • Close Combat/Sky Uppercut

The first three move provide nearly limitless coverage. With a fourth STAB move of your choice, this fighting type will wreck havoc.

Good Luck and I hope this helps.

Hitmonlee is speedy and can do tons of damage. Hitmonlee is a sweeper with a base 120 Attack which is always nice, but the fallback: horrible defence and HP. Also Hitmonchan sucked when the elemental punches were special and your team looks like a Gen 1 game (Yellow). So go with Hitmonlee!!! Hitmonchan has a better movepool but who wants to use special attacks on a Pokemon with 35 Sp. Attack.

Hi Jump Kick ( Hitmonlee's strongest STAB move )
Double Kick ( Since this is in-game moves with much pp are very useful)
Body Slam ( Strong normal type move )
Mega Kick ( Strongest Normal Type move .3. )

Hitmonlee Moves Gen I
