No, it's not a great Pokemon, but it's a good Pokemon to play with. He can even play music! Now catch a Chatot, and you'll have a PokeBand!

I'm gonna answer!
Okay, Kricketune is not known for it's stats...well it's hardly known.

>HP: 77
Min.-Max: 264 - 358

>Attack: 85
Min.-Max: 157 - 295

>Defense: 51
Min.-Max: 96 - 221

>Special Attack: 55
Min.-Max: 103 - 229

>Special Defense: 51
Min.-Max: 96 - 221

>Speed: 65
Min.-Max: 121 - 251

>Total: 384

Well...it's stats are trash. Let's see what Smogon says.

>Kricketune is yet another simply awful Bug-type who is often referred to as an inferior Beedrill. This label is pretty accurate, as Kricketune sports a lesser Speed stat, a lack of 4x resistances to make up for his poor defenses, as well as barely any options with which to even try to support the team. Factor in a weakness to Stealth Rock, and you'll find that Kricketune is a Pokemon who is really not worth using at all. Unless you've lost some kind of bet, Kricketune should never be an option on any seriously competitive team.

Yep, totally agree. It should not be used. The only thing almost good is it's HP. It's defenses are so low it could easily be OHKO'd.
