Greedent @ any berry
Ability: Cheek Pouch
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpD
Adamant Nature
- Stuff Cheeks
- Facade
- Body Press
- Crunch

With Stuff Cheeks, Greedent will eat its berry, restore some HP from Cheek Pouch, and gain a +2 defense boost. It then just hits hard with Facade, Body Press, and Crunch.

If you use a Gallon Berry, it will go from being a 2x defense boost to a 2.5x defense boost. If you don't want that extra boost, you could go for something like a Wiki/Figi Berry to get back more health. I would change Facade for Gyro Ball and then change for a Relaxed/Brave nature, that way you get the most damage out of Gyro Ball and more coverage. Other than that, this is an amazing set!
tbh I don't see the point of gyro ball when you already cover rock types with body press and getting rid of the only stab move is also kind of hard to justify
True, and I guess with most pokemon in Greedent’s tier knowing toxic, facade would work well. I only put Gyro Ball as a suggestion for incredibly fast pokemon, but Facade would probably do better a lot of the time. I don’t see a situation where a double damage 80 power move is going to do less than a 1.5x damage 70 power move though, so removing facade wouldn’t be a massive deal. I do understand using it if you tend to run into toxic stallers like flareon, but in my opinion both Gyro Ball and Facade work well.

Honestly it's kinda obvious what you should use for Greedent. (With Trick Room) Just run this:

Greedent @ Sitrus Berry
Ability: Cheek Pouch
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpD
Brave Nature
- Belly Drum
- Crunch
- Body Slam/Facade
- Fire Fang

Go for the Belly Drum right when Greedent comes out. It'll eat it's sitrus berry and then be healed to full with cheek pouch. Then just use your other moves depicting the situation. Try putting this on a trick room team. For a trick roomer, I'd recommend Runerigus.

Good luck using this!

Well, this greedent is very op, and here’s my strategy for this little chick
Ability: Cheek Pouch
Items: Sitrus Berry
EVs: 252 HP / 96Def / 160Sp.Def
Nature: Sassy (+Spd / -Speed)
-Stockpile (increase to a super tank)
-Gyro ball (With sassy nature, this would be so Op)
-Super Fang
-Counter:( Obviously you gonna get attack by a physical fighting attacker , plus you are slower , this gonna do a double damage, so wildddd)
TIPs: You should use stockpile first , then if you can tank some of the hit use another stockpile, after that base on the opp , wether the opp is , use the move that will super effect against it.

Bad ev spread. How many times to i have to tell you? You don't run ev's in defense/special defense unless you already have max hp. Have max hp over max defense.

I'm going to do a different set so
[email protected] Berry
Careful nature
252hp/252sp.def/4atk
Ability: cheek pouch
So basically this is a staller that hits hard
Moves:
- stuff cheeks
Quite strong so practically at low speed use this move first but if trick room then do in second turn
-body slam/Facade
STAB, Facade if afraid of status
-earthquake
Coverage good power
-last move can be: crunch, Elemental fangs, body press
Note: if running body press may consider changing 252sp.def to def to make physical wall
Also can run 252atk instead of hp

Greedent
Ability: Cheek Pouch
EVs: 252 HP/ 44 Atk/ 124 Def/ 84 Spd
Relaxed Nature (+Def/-Spe)
Item: Apicot Berry (increases its Spd)/ Sitrus Berry
Moves:
- Stuff Cheeks (Apicot Berry)/ Stockpile (Sitrus Berry)
- Crunch/Payback/Theif
- Body Press
- Super Fang

Use Stuff Cheeks or Stockpile to get tanky, then use Body Press as your main attack with a dark type move as coverage and super fang to break down defensive tanks and walls.

Chungus (Greedent) @ Ganlon Berry / Figi Berry
Ability: Cheek Pouch
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 Def
Relaxed Nature
IVs: 0 Spe
- Body Press
- Stuff Cheeks
- Gyro Ball
- Psychic Fangs

Psychic Fangs is to get rid of screens and take out some fighting types. Use Stuff Cheeks immediately to skyrocket your defence. Ganlon Berry turns the 2x boost to a 2.5x boost, however the Figi Berry increases the healing you would get from Cheek Pouch. Either way, this will do massive damage and is incredibly hard to kill. Gyro Ball is there to take advantage of your abysmal speed, and turn it into a lethal weapon. This hasn't failed me yet, but I've only been testing it for a few hours (nickname is optional, but recommended for a performance boost lol).

Greedent @ Figy Berry
Ability: Gluttony
EVs: 252 HP / 252 ATK / 4 DEF
Brave Nature
-Belly Drum
-Gyro Ball
-Facade
-Crunch

Haven’t done the calculation so hopefully HP will drop to half after using Belly Drum which will activate Gluttony and regain health with Figy Berry. May need to tinker with HP to make it work. Works best with trick room support.

If you're going with Gyro Ball and Trick Room, give Greedent 0 Speed IVs.
