Ugh, what a pitiful Pokemon. I hate this design, I really do. It's like they mixed and matched pieces of Staraptor and Swellow, so that it'd look "cool," then decided to put RED SPAGHETTI NOODLES on its head. It makes no sense; almost less sense than this thing's levelup movepool.

@ Razor Fang / Razor Claw
Ability: Super Luck
EVs: / 252 Attack / 252 Speed / 4 HP /


SKY ATTACK (The next strongest Physical Flying move is Pluck / Aerial Ace, which only has 60 BP)
U-TURN (Scouting move that can take down Psychic and Dark-types too!)
STEEL WING (Deals with two weaknesses. Added Crit-rate and passive Defense boosts are welcomed as well!)
HYPNOSIS / ROOST / RETURN (Hypnosis and Roost are for Utility, or you can use STAB Return with added Crit-Rate for something deadly)

you forgot brave bird. it has 120 bp
You forgot Unfezant's lack of Brave Bird. It can't learn it at all.

Honestly this Pokemon is awful. Don't ever use it in a serious battle.

Unfezant (M) @ Choice Specs

Trait: Super Luck

EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd / 4 SDef

Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)

  • Air Slash
  • Heat Wave
  • U-turn
  • Hidden Power Grass

I know what you're thinking. But Unfezant has a terrible physical move pool. While its special move pool is certainly nothing special it has a slight niche thanks to having access to moves like Air Slash (this Pokemon can't even learn Brave Bird), Heat Wave and Hidden Power Grass, which provide excellent coverage for a flying type. U-turn is for scouting, and a Modest nature is preferred over Timid for a power boost.

Unfezant @ Leftovers
Ability: Big Pecks
EVs: 248 HP / 252 Def / 8 SpD
Impish Nature
- Wish
- Protect
- Toxic
- Taunt

This set is pretty self-explanatory and makes a great check to grass, bug, ground and ghost types. While Unfezant's bulk is mediocre at best, its move pool is too shallow to pull off an offensive set. Unfezant also has access to other utility moves, such as Tailwind and Defog, however these are hard to fit onto a move set, and there are better Pokemon for the job. Stealth Rocks also hinder Unfezant greatly, as it has switch in to tank physical hits, or set up and pass on Wishes, which can be hard if Unfezant loses 25% of it's health upon switching in. Leftovers are for passive recovery. All three of Unfezant's abilities don't help it at all, however, Big Pecks is still ran to avoid defense drops. Unfezant can pass on Wishes, or heal itself the turn after, by using Protect. Protect can also be used for scouting. Toxic is Unfezant's main way of dealing damage, and prevents Pokemon setting up too much on Unfezant. Toxic is also handy for wearing down bulkier Pokemon. Taunt prevents other Pokemon from placing Unfezant under Taunt first, which is important, as Taunt completely shuts Unfezant down. It also protects Unfezant from status moves, and stops it from becoming set up bait. It also turns Unfezant into an unexpected stall breaker. Although Unfezants speed is already passable, you may want to run some speed EV's for a faster taunt, it depends on which tier you are playing in though.

All Right, Lets Try This:

Nature: Jolly/Adamant

EVs: 127 Defense, 128 SD, 252 Speed/Attack

Featherdance: Lowers the Foes Attack. alot.

Toxic: Well, After Featherdance, Physical pokemon cant hurt you. Mine as well hit them with this.

Return/Aerial Ace/Fly: Return For Power, Aerial Ace For Accuracy, or Fly to weaken the opponet with toxic while your up in the air. then theyll switch to something that resists Fly and you can hit THEM with Toxic.

Steel Wing: Covers Weaknesses.

U-Turn Might Also Be Good, To Switch.

Unfezant (F) @ Life Orb

Trait: Super Luck

EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def / 248 Spd

Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)

  • U-turn
  • Wish
  • Quick Attack
  • Aerial Ace

You want Big Pecks, be my guest. Cause everybody is trying to lower this guys Defense. Super Luck makes use of the poor hax mechanic on PO, and any move gets a Crit Hit chance boost from Super Luck.

Unfezant (M) @ Power Herb

Role: Attack Boost, Or Attract Boost

Trait: Rivalry

EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd

Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)

  • Attract
  • Sky Attack
  • Frustration
  • U-turn

Wow, his role was cheesy and lame.
Just like him!

Rivalry + Attract Combo, Meaning he either gets an attack boost, or his opponent has trouble actually hitting him, which is nice.

Jolly for more speed with Attract.

Power Herb + Sky Attack Combo gives a Strong Move to use Once, which 1 turn is about the most you can hope for this thing to live, Frustration because of how annoying Maxing his Happiness on PO is, Although out of PO Return might be a better option.

U-turn for Scouting.

Unfezant (F) @ Life Orb
Trait: Super Luck
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Swagger
- Psych Up
- Return
- Steel Wing

Isn't this thing NU? Well I'm pretty sure it is. that means steel types are less common.

Well this is pretty much... really risky. at least he has super luck ability to sarcastically reassure you.

swagger your opponent, hope they don't hit you while you psych it up, sweep.

that simple really. a lucky crit from super luck is always nice. PO has tons of hax.

I'm surprised no one has tried this:
@Scope Lens
Nature: Jolly (+Spd, -Sp. Atk) / Adamant (+Atk, -Sp. Atk)
Ability: Super Luck
EVs: 252 Attack / 252 Speed / 4 HP

Night Slash (With all these crit boosts, this move goes up to Stage 4, which is a 1/3 chance of a crit)

Steel Wing (Covers Ice and Rock weaknesses)

U-Turn (Great scouting move)

Quick Attack (Priority) / Hypnosis (Stops foe for a while, but low accuracy) / Fly (it may be an HM, but has 135 with STAB) /Return (Max happiness makes it 102 power, plus STAB)

Nature: Adamant
Item: Toxic Orb
Ability: Super Luck
EVs: / Health 252 / Attack 252 / Speed 4 /


Protect (Lets you get the Toxic Orb off and a combo with Wish)
Facade (For you to sweep)
Wish (To gain health back from the poison)
Tailwind/U-Turn (To let you out-speed the opponents Pokemon and makes you switch when you need to)

You could go Roost instead of Wish but what would you use the protect for? Facade wouldn't do as much damage if you had a Flame Orb on it, so with a Toxic Orb, it would do 140 base attack and with Unfezant's high base attack stat at 115, it can do a lot of damage.
