A fun Pokémon to use alongside its little friend Pyukumuku.
•Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
•EVs: 252 HP / 128 Def / 128 SDef
•Item: Leftovers / Sitrus Berry
•Ability: Lightning Rod
•Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
•EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SAtk
•Item: Kee Berry / Shuca Berry / Expert Belt
-Thunderbolt / Thunder
-Recover / Hex / Scald / Brine
Pincurchin draws in electric attacks (which Pyukumuky is weak to) and increases its S.Atk stat.
The idea is to use Toxic > Venoschock/Counter > Recover > Venoshock/Counter > Recover > ...
In case your oppenent switches to a steel type then you can use Soak + Thunderbolt/Thunder and poison it after that.
Hex is an option for Pincurchin as well since it will double the damage when your opponent is poisoned and is also a good coverage move. Scald/Brine is another great move to pick.
