Purugly (WIP)


- One of the few Pokemon to get access to the ability Defiant
- Decent 82 attack and absurd base 112 speed
- great choice for hazard reliant teams to punish defoggers.
- moderately sized movepool with strong priority and decent coverage
- has painfully below average defenses

name: Physical Attacker
move 1: Frustration
move 2: Fake Out
move 3: Knock Off
move 4: U-Turn
Item: Silk Scarf
Ability: Defiant
Nature: Jolly
Evs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe


- Guaranteed chip damage with Fake-Out for easier kills
- Frustration is strong STAB that combos well with Knock Off
- U-turn gives Purugly the ability to pivot out on threats that it may have a bad matchup against, while also being able to predict switches with minimal risk.

Set Details
- 252 Speed EVs and a Jolly gives Purugly a speed tier that allows it to outspeed a the majority o the tier
- 252 Attack and a Silk Scarf maximizes Purugly’s killing power
- Defiant allows Purugly to scare away or punish defog, sticky web, and parting shot
