The Adamant 252 grimmsnarl sucker punch is like 60% chance to ohko or so. Can 100% if you don’t mind using a life orb slot there.

Sounds like a good idea, I even bred one out already, I will give it a shot.

Choose any of the Pranksters and Confuse Ray and/or Willow-Wisp him, and he's crippled. This generation we have access to almost all Pranksters in the game, they are amazing online, try them.

Also Turn 1 Moxie Gyarados if not countered by the first pokemon will just become unstoppable, it's the cheapest thing this generation. Nothing can counter him except for Ditto, but even then you can still win.


I'm using a Red Card Mimikyu as my anti Gyarados... It's working pretty well.

Edit: unless the gyarados uses Dynamax... If that's the case some prediction is necessary

I usually pick a comfy topic and stay there for a while, so if I'm in your topic it's because it's fun!

Would dagapult's thunderbolt nit make short-work of gyrados?

Someone said Sucker Punch Grimmsnarl and I agree, no STAB Dragapult moves can hit it hard and he has no reliable moves to counter it, so that might be it

Lucario maybe, or send out a wall to kill it. Tox would do a good job of it

My umbreon has no problems for the most part. Depends on its build tho, sometimes it has some problems withstanding the max bug move (Dragapult tends to have U turn)

If only the clefairy line got the normal/fairy typing instead of the jigglypuff line, then they would be the ideal counter imo.
