Physical Togekiss: What?!

0 votes

Right, I've been thinking. I really want my Togekiss to use the move Drain Punch effectively. But because her attack is low, it won't do that much right?
If I gave her a choice band, 252 attack EV's, would it actually do some damage? Same for ExtremeSpeed and Ariel Ace.
This isn't an in-game team question, so don't hide. It's for my KIU themed UU team. Refer to RMT to see the whole team.

How can she punch anyway? I see no hands.

I would use a different strategy for Physical Togekiss.

Give it Hustle, that gives you an Attack boost, at the cost of some accuracy. Or you can use Work-up and Serene-grace.

Give it Extreme-speed, Drain-punch, Zen-headbutt/Aerial-ace, and Work-up/Roost/Thunder-wave

Roost or Thunder-wave if you go with Hustle. I would do Zen-Headbutt over Aerial-ace with Serene-grace for Flinch chance, and Aerial-ace for Hustle because of the perfect Acc.

Sweeper EVs, Life-orb with Hustle, Leftovers with Work-up+Serene-grace.

Um... not really. A non-boosted Choice Band maxed out EVs and nature ExtremeSpeed on a Pokmeon with 300 Defense will only do about 80 damage, max. It will do more with less Defense, but seriously, not much damage. Tri Attack would do more. So yeah, not much.
NOTE: I didn't put Drain Punch, I put what I thought was the most powerful physical move that you would actually use on a Togekiss.
