Doubles Moveset (As seen winning the 2014 World Championship). Seen taking multiple EQs (Inculding one from a

Pachirisu (F)

Item: Sitrus Berry
Ability: Volt Absorb
Nature: Impish (+Def, -Sp.Atk)

EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Sp.Def

  • Follow Me
  • Super Fang
  • Nuzzle
  • Protect

Follow Me to take hits, works well with epic Defensive stats. Used best to take Electric type moves (such as against her partner Gyarados during the final).

Super Fang cuts everything down to 50% HP, making it easy for partners to score OHKO (such as Garchomp) on everything.

Nuzzle to paralyze and do a little damage on the side, and giving your partner a Speed adavantage.

Protect as a staller.

Enjoy your now unoriginal moveset.

Pachirisu can kill lots of foes, mabey your not useing it right eh?
Can you still say that after he won the world championship?
He got lucky and was used by an experienced player. Just look at these calculations to see what i mean:

0 Atk Garchomp Earthquake vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Pachirisu: 242-288 (74.6 - 88.8%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

a no attack investment Garchomp 2HKO's him, nuf said

This little squirell kinda sucks.EDIT: Now I have a better Pachirisu moveset:

[email protected]
Ability: Volt Absorb
Nature: Calm
EVs: 252 HP/252 Def/4 SDef

Sweet Kiss- Confuses.

Nuzzle- An attacking Thunder Wave basically. It is a new move in gen 6. Combine this with Sweet Kiss and you can parafuse.

Super Fang- Halves opponent's HP.

Volt Switch- To switch to another Pokemon. STAB.

This set is much better than my last one because as it turns out, Pachirisu is bulkier than you would expect. My last one just put all Pachirisu's "best" moves into the moveset. This one actually makes Pachirisu decent!

Pachirisu @ Electric Gem
Ability: Volt Absorb
Adamant Nature
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Def
- Nuzzle
- Charge
- Thunder Punch
- U-Turn

This Pikachu poser can't do much competitively, so I pieced together this set, and it works fairly well. U-Turn makes a quick exit from ground types. This EV spread allows him to take one hit. Nuzzle cripples the foe, allowing you to set up. Charge gains more power. Thunder Punch should take out anything it does neutral damage to. All in, this guy is weak, and needs a (mega) evolution. The Electric Gem rakes up more damage. All in all, this guy gets wrecked by status sweepers, walls, Pursuit using Ground types, pokes with access to priority and Talonflames, but maybe this guy has a shot in NU?

Pachirisu is powerful than what it looks but with a great set, Pachirisu can be a little fierce fighter! How come I feel like I'm the only person who put great info in this moveset?

Pachirisu @ Focus Sash / Leftovers
Ability: Volt Absorb
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 252 Spe / 252 Atk / 4 HP
- Thunder Punch
- Seed Bomb
- Double Team
- Super Fang

Super Fang cuts down half of your opponent's HP, but don't use it again because it won't do as much damage (works well if foe has full HP). Thunder Punch is STAB and chance of paralysis, Seed Bomb is for coverage and does good damage. Double Team is to raise your evasion (who cares if its banned cause in the real Pokemon games it is not so yea haters are gonna hate!). Go with Jolly because you do want Pachirisu to outspeed more things right?! DEFINITELY go with Volt Absorb (its original two Abilities suck unless Pickup was used in regular gameplay).

enter image description here
Pachirisu @ Leftovers
Ability: Volt Absorb
EVs: 132 Def / 120 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Nuzzle / Electroweb
- Electro Ball
- Charge / Charge Beam
- Sweet Kiss

I know this isn't the world champion set, but this would also work somewhat well. Electro Ball is for after using a speed lowering move like Electroweb (Move Tutor) or Nuzzle to paralyze, also lowering Speed. Sweet Kiss is also great for confusing!

Generation 7 Moveset

Pachirisu (M) @ Sitrus Berry
Trait (Ability? Which should I use?): Volt Absorb
Nature: Timid (+Spd, -Atk)

EVs: 252 HP / 252 Spd / 4 Sp.Atk

  • Nuzzle (Better than Thunder Wave, since this has 100 accuracy and deals a little damage)
  • Electro Ball (Since paralysis cut the opponents speed, this should be more effective)
  • Ion Deluge (Incoming Normal-type move = 1/4 health restored due to Volt Absorb)
  • Super Fang (For those pesky Special Tanks)

Basically, use Nuzzle first to paralyze the opponent (should outspeed the opponent anyway, but correct me if I'm wrong), then zap 'em good with Electro Ball. Need a heal? If the opponent uses some Normal-type moves, turn 'em into Electric-type moves with Ion Deluge. Super Fang should do more damage to Special Tanks than if you were to just use Electro Ball on them.

Phew... my first posted moveset is complete. Sorry if it isn't good. Also, sorry if I'm a little late to the Pachirisu party.

Offensive sets? LMAO. it's got 45 attack and SpA ffs. Don't use the garbage offensive squirrel sets. It's supposed to be a bulky mon.
Pachirisu
Pachirisu @ Leftovers
Ability: Volt Absorb
Nature: Bold (+Def, -Atk)
EV spread: 252 HP / 200 Def/ 56 SpD
- Nuzzle
- Super Fang
- Rest
- Sleep Talk

Pretty useful set. Nuzzle for paralysis, then either Super Fang them to "wallbreak" or Rest to heal off damage then Sleep Talk to hopefully Super Fang them. I've also got another set:

Pachirisu @ Leftovers
Ability: Volt Absorb
EV spread: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD or 252 HP / 200 Def / 56 SpD
Nature: Calm for the first EV spread, or Bold if you're going for the 2nd option
- Volt Switch / U-Turn
- Super Fang
- Toxic
- Protect

While Pachirisu shows almost no offensive capabilities, it's got decent defensive stats and an ability that increases longevity. Volt Switch to get the hell outta there, Super Fang cause Pachirisu is an "excellent wallbreaker", Toxic because it's a staller, what did you expect? Oh yeah Protect is to increase poison damage and get free healing with your Leftovers.

This Pokemon isn't the best that's for sure, but it is pretty damn underrated. It might not work in OU, Uber, or UU, however it can probably be good in lower tiers. I've used it, and it's decent. Probably the best Pikaclone, and that's not even a joke.
