I’ll try to help you here, but just know that Exploud isn’t the best Pokémon out there lol, and some things pretty much outclass it as well.Looking for some help building a solid singles team with Exploud on it. Looking to avoid playing Togekiss, Excadrill, or any Rotoms simply because.... i do not think they are cool.
Any help greatly appreciated. Or resources greatly appreciated!
What Exploud can do, pretty much unlike anything else out there, is that it can fire off strong stabbed, Scrappy Boombursts, which honestly is pretty neat. Exploud doesn’t have the greatest defenses, so I would try to avoid using setup moves and go for the Specs set here. The set would besomething like this:
Exploud @ Choice Specs
EVs: 252 SpA, 252 Spe, 4 Def
- Focus Blast
- Fire Blast
- Surf / Hydro Pump
Basically you don’t need to worry about having coverage moves for Ghosts, so all of Exploud’s coverage moves should be geared toward hitting things that resist Boomburst (or Rock and Steel types)
For teammates, I would suggest Dual Screens Grimmsnarl here, as Grimmsnarl can help Exploud live a lot more attacks than normal. Also, Charizard might be good here as well; Charizard can switch into Fighting moves aimed at Exploud, and Charizard can also take on most Steel Pokémon well that would switch into potential Boombursts.
I hope this helps; feel free to ask more things if necessary!
