Ratings are based
on a 1 to 5 scale.
1 being the worst. 3 ... average. 5 is the highest rating.
Okay, we begin with the crappiest Hitmon, Hitmonchan. I deleted
NetBattle, so I can't give you any specific EVs.
Hitmonchan @ Choice Band
-Earthquake/Hidden Power Ghost
A crappier version of the other Hitmons. Use Hitmonlee or
Hitmonchan @ Leftovers
-Focus Punch/Hidden Power Ghost
I dunno; I guess the Bulk Up set can work decently in Neverused.
In standard, you could hit Skarmory with a Bulk Up Focus Punch
as it Roars Hitmonchan away, but Skarmory may Drill Peck it away
instead due to its horrible HP and mediocre Defense. Eh.
EVs: For all sets, give it maxed Attack and Speed with an
Adamant Nature since it needs to hit hard and run away. You
could run 240 Speed if you're worried about Magneton and Breloom
(however, you shouldn't use Hitmonchan in OU). If you're using
Agility for some strange reason, run 198 Speed with maxed Attack
and the remaining EVs in HP.
Other Options: Don't use the punches with Hitmonchan's base 35
Special Attack. =/
Maybe Brick Break over Sky Uppercut for accuracy. Mach Punch in
NU or UU for Flail/Reversal Pokemon.
Agility if you wanted to sweep (lol).
Rapid Spin is an option if you're afraid of Spikes, but
Hitmonchan is way too frail for a Spinner and Skarmory will
Drill Peck it while it wastes its time spinning.
Sleep Talk can go on the Choice Band set to absorb sleep, but
again, Hitmonchan is too frail.
Counters: Skarmory, Weezing, Dusclops, Celebi, Jirachi, Zapdos,
Moltres, Salamence, Gyarados, Gengar if no HP Ghost, lots of OU
Pokemon. In NU, I suppose Pokemon like Swalot and Pidgeot stop
Final Verdict: Hitmonchan is an absolutely horrible Pokemon that
is unfit for any metagame except the Neverused Metagame. Use
Hitmonlee or Hitmontop in UU instead. Seriously, I'm
competitive, and I'm not going to sugar-coat crappy Pokemon.
OU: 1/5. It gets eaten alive, and you have better fighters like
Heracross and BRELOOM (what happened to my favorite Pokemon? =(
UU: 1/5. You have Hitmonlee and Hitmontop to use here.
NU: 3/5. It's actually decent here. Then again, Plusle is good
in NU. =/
Ability: Keen eye.

Hi everyone. Welcome to another Pokémon of the Week. Today we’re
reviewing Hitmonchan, the boxing Pokémon.
Hitmonchan is even worse than Hitmonlee. It learns the elemental
punches but has a horrible special attack which makes them
totally useless… It is also kind of slow but has more special
The ability isn’t that great either. It prevents accuracy loss,
but I don’t think that’s a wide advantage for you.
So you might think a move combination like this; the three
elemental punches and another thing. But we don’t want that. It
Nature: Jolly (+ Speed, - Special attack).
Equip: Salac berry.
EV´s: 252 Attack, 252 Speed, 6 HP.
- Mach punch
- Bulk up
- HP rock
- Brick break
Bulk up, then use HP rock or Brick break. With salac berry
you’re earning some speed so try to stay alive.
When should I use this Pokémon?
Don’t use it, believe me. If you really want to use first use a
baton passer so you really take some advantage out of Hitmonchan.
Ninjask works fine.
What should I use against this Pokémon?
Ghost Pokémon. Any of them will work fine. Flying types also
work great. Skarmory and Gengar will take this out easily.
Not even close to a good Pokémon. Don’t bother… If you really
want to use it, use it playing the main story of the game as it
is a very casual Pokémon.
Hope you enjoyed.

Hello everybody and welcome to another GBA Pokemon of the week.
Just 2 more days and everybody can open their Wii’s and PS3’s. I
write this on a Thursday morning preparing to camp out at Best
Buy’s for probably their last shipment of Wii’s before X-mas so
wish me luck. This week we have the Jackie-Chan-based Pokemon,
Hitmonchan the punching fiend.
This is one of those Pokemon that looks cool but is more so used
for more Pokedex fodder. In my opinion, Hitmonchan shouldn’t be
used because the common Psychic-types that lurk about can
usually take him down in 1 hit or 2 but that goes for a lot of
fighting Pokemon. However, Hitmonchan has an above normal
special defense base of 110 so ya never know. Still I’d avoid
using single-type Pokemon unless its extremely awesome. But
let’s try this moveset
Start things off with a nice little Swagger and Rock Slide away
unless you are half-life or less then endure. Allow Salac to
activate then Reversal/Rock Slide till you see fit. This one
might be lucky enough to take 1 maybe 2 down if worked right but
Sandstorm/Hail and quick atk/extreme speed/mach punch/anything
that goes fast owns him.
I’d rank it better than last week’s Licky but its not gonna cut
it in competitive play.
Hope everybody has a Merry Christmas! So from Osaka, farewell
