What is a good moveset for Pachirisu?

1 vote

Mine is EV trained in Attack and Speed. It knows:

Seed Bomb: Good power, high accuracy, used to deal with Ground types.

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

Super Fang: Halves foe's health.

Thunderpunch: Decent power, high accuracy, STAB, chance to paralyze.

Seed Bomb-Deals with ground types.Has high Power and accuracy.Keep it!

Charm-Lowers the foe's attack by two stages,making up for Pachirisu's lower defence.

ThunderPunch-Since your Pachirisu is EV trained in attack,I would keep it.

Super Fang-Keep this too,because if you want to get a battle done quickly,you just use this twice.

I know this is mainly all the moves you have chosen.But with one difference,Charm.

If you used super fang twice your opponent's pokemon would only lose 3/4 of its hp

PACHIRISU (F) @ Leftovers/Flame Orb/Toxic Orb
Ev's: 290 HP / 167 Atk / 190 Spatk / 220 Spd
Trait: Volt Absorb
Iron Tail
Dig/Façade (If your going to use Façade give PACHIRISU either the Toxic Orb or Flame Orb as you would not be using Façade to it's full use)

Ok here I go. Thunder has Good STAB (I believe at least). Very nice move. Substitute can help you endure those annoying ground type moves for at least 2 turns. Iron Tail Would be used against rock and ice types (most of the rock types are Rock-Ground Pokemon anyway). Dig is a good moves to avoid most attacks (except for earthquake. Dig only increases the chance of PACHIRISU fainting). Façade is great in damaging your opponet.

This little squirell kinda sucks.EDIT: Now I have a better Pachirisu moveset:

Ability: Volt Absorb
Nature: Calm
EVs: 252 HP/252 Def/4 SDef

Sweet Kiss- Confuses.

Nuzzle- An attacking Thunder Wave basically. It is a new move in gen 6. Combine this with Sweet Kiss and you can parafuse.

Super Fang- Halves opponent's HP.

Volt Switch- To switch to another Pokemon. STAB.

This set is much better than my last one because as it turns out, Pachirisu is bulkier than you would expect. My last one just put all Pachirisu's "best" moves into the moveset. This one actually makes Pachirisu decent!

Electric Gem
Adamant Nature
Ability: Volt Absorb
EV's 252 Att/4 Spe D/252 D
Thunder Punch

This Pikachu poser can't do much competitively, so I pieced together this set, and it works fairly well. U-Turn makes a quick exit from ground types. This EV spread allows him to take one hit. Nuzzle cripples the foe, allowing you to set up. Charge gains more power. Thunder Punch should take out anything it does nuetral damage to. All in, this guy is weak, and needs a (mega) evolution. The Electric Gem Rakes up more damage. All in all, this guy geys wrecked by status sweepers, walls, pursuit usinh ground types, pokes with access to priority and Talonflames, but maybe this guy has a shot in NU?
