Decidueye is the final evolution of starter Rowlett on Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. Of the three starters, this Pokémon is pretty versatile over the others. Is it good to place Decidueye at the forefront of your party during battle? Find out below. Here's how to use Decidueye effectively.
Pokémon Sun And Moon - Decidueye Z-Move
With the use of Decidium, Decidueye can use its Z-Move to transform Spirit Shackle into Sinister Arrow Raid, a physical attack boasting a base power of 180. It's very potent that it can destroy almost all Pokémon. However, Sinister Arrow Raid is a Ghost attack which makes it less efficient when used against Normal-type Pokémon.
Pokémon Sun And Moon - Decidueye Stats
With regard to base stats, Decidueye has 78 for Health, 107 for Attack, 75 for Defense, 100 for Special Attack, and 70 for Speed. The combination of a fairly good health and speed and the powerful Attack and Special Attack makes the Pokémon mature and experienced. To maximize Decidueye, observe your five other Pokémon and see where Decidueye can fill their weaknesses.
Pokémon Sun And Moon - Decidueye Movesets
Decidueye has plenty of moves to learn. Some of its best moves are Sprit Shackle, Energy Ball and U-turn. Decidueye's speedy signature move Spirit Shackle keeps an enemy at bay during battle. Energy Ball is the move you need to make Decidueye more of a special sweeper. U-turn deals damage fairly well for this Pokémon when attacked by a its weakness Pokémon.
Pokémon Sun And Moon - The Cons
Decidueye can do a decent job at everything. However, its versatility doesn't serve it much because there are other Pokémon that are better in a particular area. Say, Decidueye might be speedy but not as speedy as Sceptile and Electrode. It also is weak against Flying, Dark and Fire. Even so, you need to be creative with using combo moves for Decidueye to survive battles.
Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon are now available on Nintendo 3DS.
