Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Crunch or a different move for my Durant?

1 vote

My Durant knows:
Stone Edge

I will not change any other moves in the set.
I want to know if there is a better move for the set than Crunch.
This is in-game and competitive, so sorry if it should be asked on Batte Subway.

Crunch has somewhat repetitive coverage with X-Scissor IMO, I suggest you go with Hone Claws, because if it has the ability hustle it's accuracy will be normal and you will have the equivalent of a swords dance boost, if you don't have hustle, it is still a viable move.

i agree with ya
I don't have Hustle. I have Swarm.
As I said, Hone Claws is still the way to go even though you don't have hustle.
I upvoted both of you. Thanks guys.

Crunch is more reliable and a chance to lower defense is awesome.Crunch deals damage and has a 20% chance of lowering the target's Defense by one stage.

Really? Didn't know about the Defense thing.
I'll up vote both of you. No BA, because I need to think about this for a while.
