Murkrow Base Stats: 60 HP / 85 Atk / 42 Def / 85 SpA / 42 SpD / 91Spe Abilities: Insomnia, Super Luck, Prankster Role(s): Physical Sweeper, Mixed Sweeper, Wall Breaker, Late Game Cleaner Murkrow is an extremely popular Pokemon in Little Cup due to its ability to sweep, wall-break and beat many Pokemon such as the plethora of Fighting types, Grass types and many more. It reaches the coveted 19 speed tier and is very dangerous with a base stat of 85 in both offenses. With its great coverage it OHKOs or 2HKOs many Pokemon with a Life Orb mixed set containing Brave Bird, Sucker Punch, Heatwave and Hidden Power Grass. Occasionally it may run Drill Peck over Brave Bird or Dark Pulse over Hidden Power Grass to give it a STAB move without a drawback. Despite this set's power, it also faints very quickly due to Life Orb recoil, Brave Bird recoil and passive damage from weather and Stealth Rock. A Scarf set can also be used with the same moves as the Life Orb set. This allows it to out speed and check other boosted pokemon such as +1 Scraggy and Scarf Snover. These two sets utilise insomnia meaning it can switch into grass types like Shroomish and Foongus without worrying about Spore. Because Mixed Murkrow doesn't last long, many players opt for a more bulky SubRoost set with Substitute, Roost, Brave Bird and Sucker Punch. Prankster allows Murkrow to set up priority substitutes as well as being able to heal quickly whilst removing a weakness to Rock, Electric and Ice type moves. With an eviolite and a bit of EV investment in the defenses, this set has good longevity but it is easier to beat with many Rock and Steel type Pokemon. Finally, a parafusion set with Thunder Wave, Confuse Ray, Roost and Brave Bird or Drill Peck can prove to be a very annoying set to face, but it's generally not recommended due to its reliance on luck.
