Pokédex Data:

It chases down pray in a pack. It will never disobey the commands of a skilled Trainer.

 

I’m finally back. After illness, lots of work and other things, I am finally back to business, so let’s cut the chat and do our thing.

 

Mightyena is underused, but it is now a little better than it was a couple years ago. Its attack can be boosted to make it deadly; you just need time and a little protection, or some smart strategy.

 

The movesets for today are…

 

Annoyer.
Mightyena@Leftovers.
Nature: Adamant (+ Attack, - Special attack).
EV’s: 252 Attack / 129 Defense / 129 Special defense.
- Taunt
- Sucker punch
- Fire fang / Crunch
- Ice fang / Return

 

This one is very risky, but kind of fun once you got it working. Use taunt with something that is not going to kill you, then use sucker punch so you can hit first. The last two moves depend on your strategies. This set also works with choice band if you switch taunt for one of the offensive attacks.

 

Howler.
Mightyena@Leftovers.
Nature: Adamant (+ Attack, - Special attack).
EV’s: 252 Attack / 252 Special attack / 6 HP.
- Howl
- Crunch / Facade
- Fire fang
- Rock smash

 

Another sweeping option. But you still need one turn to howl, so predicting or forcing switches in double battler help this one a lot.

 

Pros.

As I said before, it is better now than when we first met it, unfortunately not enough. But if you are going casual this one is very good, with both abilities.

 

Counters.

Steel, rock and fighting types are a big pain for Mightyena, especially if you a looking for extra turns to boost. If you find these, force switches or switch.

 

Bottom line.

You are going to have 3 reviews today, so let’s keep going…

 

Rating:

2.2/5

 

Hope you enjoyed.

Reeve.
