Gumshoos was one of many fortunate few to be included within the first Alolan occasion for Pokemon GO. This Pokemon joins the ranks of Raticate, Patrat, and Sentret as early sport choices that may’t sustain with different threats.
Gumshoos appears to have the identical mediocre stats as the primary collection (though he has a pleasant 204 Stamina stat). Regardless of being extremely low ranked, there may be nonetheless a task the Gumshoos can play within the Massive League.
What strikes ought to this Alolan Pokémon use?
Though it’s a regular sort, many of the good strikes Gumshoos learns are darkish sort. This enables him to be a Ghost-type counter since regular sorts are additionally immune to Ghost-type strikes.
Biting is the quickest transfer he can use. Whereas Take Down might be enticing (particularly when charging 10 power per use), it is also extremely sluggish at 1.5 seconds. The chunk is extremely weak (base energy 4), however no less than it is quick.
Naturally, this transfer must be paired with Crunch to tackle the menacing ghost-types of the meta. Crunch is an efficient transfer because it has respectable injury and solely prices 45 power.
Sadly, Gumshoos is pressured to carry out a substandard transfer within the different slot. He has to decide on between Hyper Fang (which is able to by no means hit for tremendous efficient injury) and Rock Tomb (which takes without end to cost).
Whereas Hyper Fang can be utilized extra usually, Gumshoos may benefit from Rock Tomb. The backside line is that Gumshoos will probably be the weakest member of any workforce. If it will probably put a teammate in a greater place, it may probably be a game-winner.
Rock Tomb has a assured debuff on the goal’s assault stat when used. So if Gumshoos can cost up sufficient power to make use of it, it is perhaps value sacrificing it so a Swampert or Trevenant can are available in and take down the opponent.
