Mine has the ability Serene Grace. It knows:

Iron Tail: High power, good chance to lower defense.

Headbutt: Decent power, high accuracy, STAB, good chance to cause flinching.

Rock Slide: Decent power, decent accuracy, good chance to cause flinching.

Poison Jab: Good power, high accuracy, good chance to cause poison.

Earthquake-never seen this one

roost-How it can learn this is beyond me...

Rockslide-good move, good flinching

headbutt -like you said

It can learn Roost? I didn't know that.
Yeah, it has small wings, so I guess that counts as roosting.
Well, the fact that it is not a Flying type makes Roost incredible!

Dunsparce (M) @ Leftovers

Role: Annoying Haxer

Trait: Serene Grace

EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / Sp Def

Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)

  • Body Slam
  • Coil
  • Rock Slide
  • Zen Headbutt

This guy is rather beastly.

Body slam = 60% Chance of Paralyzed opponent
Coil = More Accuracy for Rock Slide and Zen Headbutt, with More Attack and defense.
Zen Headbutt = Now that they're Paralyzed, Flinch!
Rock Slide = Continuing with the Flinch Hax

-Coil (To rise the Attack, Defense and Accuraccy in just 1 turn)

This yellow, rare, and short snake isn't something to sniff about.

Dunsparce@Focus Sash
Ability: Serene Grace

Thunder Wave/Glare- Paralysis.

Roost- Healing move. It DOES have wings. The tiny type though...

Rock Slide- 60% chance of flinch and good damage.

Coil- Harder. Better. Faster. Stronger(boosts to attack, defense, and speed with a Daft Punk reference).

Give him either a Jolly or Adamant nature and 252 HP/128 Atk/128 Def EVs. This little guy is a flinch king and this is the most effective way to use a Dunsparce so other than Zen Headbutt as an option and cheap tricks like Flail, I hereby declare this an OFFICIAL STAPLE Dunsparce moveset brought to you by the Pokemon Database.

By the way, the REAL flinch master is Togekiss holding Razor Claw or King's Rock with Air Slash, Thunder Wave, Roost, and Aura Sphere(with the ability Serene Grace of course!).

Mega charge technique:
held Item: silk scarf
nature: impish (-spatk, +def)
ability: doesn't matter


double edge (deals a damn lot of damage 180 pow with STAB, watch out for rock and steel though)

yawn (use to prepare for charging)

coil (boost while opponent is sleeping)

roost (when you need more HP)
