Should I make my Houndoom Timid or Lonely nature?

1 vote

Im thinking whether i should make my houndoom timid or lonely. In my current team there arent any mixed attackers so im thinking about using my houndoom as a mixed sweeper with lonely nature. but with the lonely nature, it sacrifises his defense and speed. with timid nature, he will be fast but only effective as a special sweeper. which one is better? a speedy special sweeper? or a mixed attacker who can take down most psychics and ghosts with sucker punch?

Go with Lonely. Timid will lower your Attack, which won't be good for a mixed Houndoom.

i didnt completely decide if i want to make him mixed yet. so thats why im asking if timid or mixed is better. and if i make him timid, i wont give him any physical moves

How about Hasty (+Speed -Defense) or Naive (+Speed - Sp.Def) if you don't want Timid or Lonely?
