Yes, Dugtrio learns Memento now with Breeding. Note that it is illegal with Stealth Rock as well, so don't get excited on that one. Memento is the most noteworthy addition to Dugtrio primarily because Dugtrio has Arena Trap. It is guaranteed to use Memento on a Pokemon that it is forced upon so long as it is grounded. This could be a scary addition for Dugtrio. Arena Trap. A solid ability, Arena Trap, makes Grounded Pokemon suffer for existing. What better to trap them when many of them will suffer from Earthquake? 120 Speed. What's a nice thing for a trapper? The trapper being quick! Base 120 Speed gets the vast majority of the old OU metagame and will likely get the vast majority of the new Pokemon as well. For reference, the new Pokemon that are faster than Dugtrio are as follows: Agirudaa, Meloia (Step Forme). That's it! Somewhat underwhelming in power. It's not the strongest Pokemon on earth. Base 80 Attack is nothing that screams powerful. LolDefenses. It's frail and only boasts an Electric immunity. You're only pulling Claw Sharpens on Electric locks. [Possible Movesets] [SET] name: It's a Trap! move 1: Earthquake move 2: Rock Slide / Stone Edge move 3: Night Slash / Sucker Punch move 4: Memento ability: Arena Trap item: Choice Band / Life Orb nature: Jolly evs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe The only thing that changes is that Memento should be an option on the set. You're likely not going Adamant either, as it prevents Dugtrio from trapping Starmie as well as many other Pokemon that have trollish Speeds. Still the best set for it. Choice Scarf is an option... [SET] name: Sand Power move 1: Earthquake move 2: Rock Slide / Stone Edge move 3: Night Slash move 4: Memento / Sucker Punch ability: Sand Power item: Life Orb nature: Jolly evs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe It's only noteworthy because of the ability itself. Not sure how much Sand Power increases the moves though. Probably better as an Other Option material, but *shrugs*. So not much has changed for Dugtrio aside from the metagame... and Memento. Discuss.
