PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A
1 vote

I'm trying to make a Gym Leader who doesn't revolve around a single type but a game mechanic. That being Critical Hits. I'm trying to make a handful of Pokemon right now for their team but I can't think of anything other than these three Pokemon.

  • Sirfetch'd
    Ability: Scrappy
    Item: Leek
    Brick Break
    Leaf Blade
    Night Slash
    Focus Energy

  • Toxapex
    Ability: Merciless
    Item: Black Sludge (Not sure)
    Muddy Water
    Pin Missile

  • Hitmonlee
    Ability: Unburden
    Item: Lansat Berry
    High Jump Kick
    Focus Energy
    Blaze Kick
    Stone Edge

I just want a moveset or a few. Pretty much any moveset for any Pokemon that completely or mostly revolves around Critical Hits.

Singles or doubles? What Pokemon, moves, and abilities do you not want to use?
The original question asking for full movesets isn't a good fit for this platform, sorry -- it's not well-defined exactly what you'd be happy with for a gym leader moveset, and gathering other people's opinions (e.g. "let them decide") is not what the Q&A is for.
I changed the title so you'll get a proper list of game mechanics that you can work with, which should help you get more ideas.
I literally wrote an entire goddamn essay about Moves, Abilities, and Items regarding Critical Hits. If I wanted to know about game mechanics I can research that and I already did before posting that question so this doesn't even help at all. What I wanted was for people to give me an idea of a moveset I could come up with. I even gave examples.

I can't go to Q&A because apparently asking for ideas isn't a question despite the keyword there being "Asking", can't go to Rate My Team because that's for rating teams and not getting ideas for them, I can't go to chat room because the chat's dead, and I can't go to Meta (Suggestion Box) because that's for suggestions regarding the website. So riddle me this one! WHERE DO I GO ON THIS WEBSITE TO ASK THIS THEN!?
The reason I changed the question is that the Q&A is for "answerable" questions (as the rules page puts it). It's not about collecting ideas like you've asked for -- it's more about problem solving and strategy. You could fix this by narrowing down the options (so the question is more like "what fits this description?" and not "give me some ideas").
There is nowhere on this site that you can ask for movesets for an imaginary gym leader, sorry. It's not within the focus here and we're sorry if that wasn't advertised properly. You could try another website/community that is a bit closer to a normal forum.
