Out alternate series finally reached its end for now. Today it’s Grumpig’s turn because of an e-mail I got, so send your suggestions and we’ll be glad to review them for you when possible…


Grumpig is a pretty decent wall with some special sweeper potential. Its stats are clearly not the best but psychic types are not to be taken lightly.  I’d also say thick fat gives it a very good protection against common used attacks.


The movesets for today are…


Special sweeper.
Grumpig@Chesto berry.
Nature: Modest (+ Special attack, - Attack).
EV’s: 252 Special attack / 129 Special defense / 129 HP.
- Calm mind
- Psychic
- Shadow ball / HP fighting
- Rest


Calm mind as long as you can, then rest when necessary. Let chesto activate and sweep as much as you can. HP fighting is a nice surprise for those nasty dark types. It is an easy set, but you have to be good timing your rest.


Grumpig@Choice specs / Choice scarf.
Nature: Modest (+ Special attack, - Attack).
EV’s: 252 Special attack / 129 Special defense / 129 HP.
- Trick
- Psychic
- Shadow ball
- HP fighting


Use the item if you wish, but if you trick you may get something better or totally ruin your opponent’s strategy. Then sweep normally. It is a common set for Grumpig, so don’t expect to surprise your veteran friends.



Grumpig is a fighter (and a pig), it definitely could use more offensive stats but it has nice tricks, no doubt about it. Its defensive strategies are great and even better thanks to thick fat.



Be careful of dark types as Houndoom, Spiritomb and Honchkrow, as pursuit, shadow ball or good type HP will be fatal against Grumpig. Strong physical sweepers are going to be a problem as well if you already have some HP down.


Bottom line.

It’s been very busy at college, but I’d not miss this chance to get some quality time writing about one of my favorite things =) thanks for reading, see you next week.





Hope you enjoyed.



Remember you can contact me at reeve.ryu@gmail.com Thanks for all your suggestions and comments. I try to answer as soon as possible =)
