Role: Defog Support
EVs: 16 HP / 252 Atk / 240 Sp. Def
- Sucker Punch
- Protect / Pursuit
Surprisingly, Skuntank is able to learn Defog. With a unique typing different from most Defoggers, it can easily surprise several players.
Defog is used for hazard removal.
Taunt deals with hazard-setters and forces them to use an attacking move.
Sucker Punch has priority and STAB. This is useful because the taunted hazard-setters would have to use an attacking move, but Skuntank can beat them with Sucker Punch.
Protect is mainly used for scouting moves, but it isn't as good as Pursuit, which can catch the hazard-setters on the switch-out. Poison Jab can also be used in this slot for dual STABS.
Note: EVs are used to make Skuntank bulky, yet still have the necessary power.
