Battle Strategy Edit

Absol Battle

Physical Sweeper Edit

  • Item: Life Orb
  • Ability: Super Luck
  • Nature: Adamant (+Attack, -Sp. Attack)
  • EVs: Attack and Speed
  • Moves:
    • Pursuit
    • Swords Dance
    • Sucker Punch
    • Superpower
  • Both abilities are viable, but Super Luck is preferred as it gives Absol even more power.
  • Sucker Punch is your main STAB, as it hits hard and gives priority, you need to be mindful using it though.
  • Superpower grants coverage, and hits very hard reliably, Swords Dance can help you recover your stats from this.
  • Pursuit will allow you to pick off weak opponents that might want to switch out

Random Thoughts Edit

  • Night Slash has a heightened critical hit rate on top of Super Luck
  • Megahorn is a powerful move that can catch opponents off guard
  • Substitute can help you set up Swords Dance more reliably
  • Fire Blast is useful against Physically Defensive Steel Type
