Yet another underused Pokémon, Kricketune has an interesting
move pool. Having its great attack compared to the rest of its
stats, it invites you to sweep, but then again, you need to
sweep smartly with weak Pokémon as this one.
The movesets for today are…
Nature: Jolly (+ Speed, - Special attack).
EV’s: 252 Speed / 129 Attack / 129 HP.
- Swords dance
- Brick break
- Endure / Sing
Use swords dance if possible, otherwise start with endure and
sweep as much as you can. Sing is another good option to boost
your stats until you are ready.
Nature: Jolly (+ Speed, - Special attack), Adamant (+ Attack, -
EV’s: 252 Speed / 252 Attack / 6 HP.
- Aerial ace
- Brick break
