Healer Build Explanation

This build is centered on healing and shielding allies using Pollen Puff and Cotton Guard.

  • Exp. Share is Eldegoss' main support item, making leveling up for itself and its lane partner faster in the early game. It also increases the Pokemon's movement speed for better mobility.
  • Resonant Guard allows Eldegoss to passively generate additional shields for its allies whenever it deals damage. It also gives a decent amount of HP and HP regeneration.
  • Focus Band improves Eldegoss' durability through increased defenses and acts as a survivability tool.
  • Buddy Barrier can be a replacement for Focus Band for an additional source of shielding during teamfights and more HP for Eldegoss.
  • X Speed gives Eldegoss a versatile mobility tool for offense or defense.
  • The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Green Emblems to maximize Eldegoss' move damage and 7 Black Emblems for cooldown reduction. This can be achieved by equipping at least 3 Emblems that are both green and black.
  • Equip Emblems that improve Sp. Atk to maximize Eldegoss' move healing and damage.
  • Attack, Critical-Hit Rate, Sp. Def., and Defense can be freely traded for the other stats.

Utility Build Explanation

This is a flexible build with a good balance of offense and defense. It's centered on healing allies and damaging enemies with Pollen Puff and Cotton Spore.

  • Muscle Band improves Eldegoss' attacks via increased damage and attack speed, which also synergizes well with the Pokemon's Boosted Attacks.
  • Exp. Share is Eldegoss' main support item, making leveling up for itself and its lane partner faster in the early game. It also increases the Pokemon's movement speed for better mobility.
  • Buddy Barrier makes Eldegoss more durable via an HP boost. It also serves as a teamfight tool.
  • Rapid-Fire Scarf can be a great replacement for Muscle Band, giving Eldegoss a massive attack speed boost every few seconds, which also goes well with its Boosted Attacks.
  • Eject Button gives Eldegoss a quick repositioning tool to set up Cotton Spore, but it's also a great mobility tool in general.
  • The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Green Emblems to maximize Eldegoss' move damage and 7 Black Emblems for cooldown reduction. This can be achieved by equipping at least 3 Emblems that are both green and black.
  • Equip Emblems that improve Sp. Atk to maximize Eldegoss' move healing and damage.
  • Attack, Critical-Hit Rate, Sp. Def., and Defense can be freely traded for the other stats.

Since it's a flexible build, equipping items that will maximize one aspect of Eldegoss is the ideal item combination. Exp. Share and Buddy Barrier are core items for the build, leaving only one (1) item for consideration.

As the results show, for a build focusing more on attack damage, equipping Muscle Band will produce the best outcome for Eldegoss. The item's HP-based bonus damage and increased attack speed goes well with Eldegoss' Boosted Attack effect.

As for alternatives, replacing Muscle Band with Rapid-Fire Scarf would be the best option. Although the item does less damage than Muscle Band, its rapid attack speed bonus makes up for it in terms of DPS.

For a build focused more on move damage, equipping Choice Specs will generate the best results.

For alternatives, replacing Choice Specs with Slick Spoon would be the best choice.

On the other hand, for better healing, equipping Sp. Atk. Specs will maximize the Pokemon's healing. However, it does require Eldegoss to fully-stack the item first to get the maximum healing.

For alternatives, replacing Sp. Atk. Specs with Wise Glasses would be the ideal choice. The item produced the second best healing results and is only slightly lower than Sp. Atk. Specs.


These damage tests are conducted in Practice Mode with Goodra as the Training Partner. The Pokemon is set to level 15 and has no items equipped. The results are taken by substracting the Pokemon's max HP and its HP after taking damage.

The healing results are taken from the floating green texts above the Pokemon when it's healed.

Offense Build Explanation

This is a high offense build centered on utilizing Eldegoss' Boosted Attack effect, increasing the Pokemon's attacks on inflicted targets, and the movement speed bonus from Leaf Tornado and Cotton Spore. However, Eldegoss won't be able to support its allies through healing and shielding anymore with this build.

  • Muscle Band improves Eldegoss' attacks via increased damage and attack speed, which also synergizes well with the Pokemon's Boosted Attacks.
  • Rapid-Fire Scarf further improves Eldegoss' attacks through a massive attack speed boost every few seconds.
  • Focus Band increases Eldegoss' durability through increased defenses and a healing tool.
  • Slick Spoon can be a great replacement for Rapid-Fire Scarf, giving more emphasis on move damage.
  • X Attack provides Eldegoss with an active source of damage boost whenever it needs it, particularly for its attacks.
  • The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Green Emblems to maximize Eldegoss' move damage and 7 Black Emblems for cooldown reduction. This can be achieved by equipping at least 3 Emblems that are both green and black.
  • Equip Emblems that improve Sp. Atk to maximize Eldegoss' move healing and damage.

Since the build is centered on Eldegoss' attacks, equipping items that will maximize it is the ideal item combination. Focus Band is a core item for the build, leaving only two (2) items for consideration.

As the results show, Muscle Band and Rapid-Fire Scarf will produce the best outcome for Eldegoss. The item combination generated the best results for Standard Attack while still having a decent score for Boosted Attack.

As for alternatives, replacing Rapid-Fire Scarf with Slick Spoon would be the ideal choice. The item combination has only a slightly lower Standard Attack result but scored the highest for Boosted Attack. It also improves Eldegoss' move damage by default thanks to Slick Spoon's Sp. Atk. bonus and defense penetration effect.

Jump to Section

Give Wild Pokemon to Lane Partner at the Start

It's best to let Eldegoss' lane partner to get the wild Pokemon in the lane at the start of the match, especially if Eldegoss is equipped with Exp. Share. Eldegoss needs to head straight for the wild Pokemon located near the jungle entrances at the start, allowing its lane partner to get all the exp. in the lane.

Note:
Eldegoss will still gain exp. passively even if it's not attacking wild Pokemon.

Be Aware of Positioning

This things easy match ups should be expanded to melee attackers with low mobility / few dashes (azumarill, tyranitar, buzzwole ) because the slows from cotton spore + normal boosted attacks are hard for them to deal with. It doesnt even have to go "full offense" to pull it off either really ... The first move can be either. Only cotton spore is mandatory. It still works decent on guys who DO have multiple dashes by spending part of its high HP to make distance.

I got Eldegoss as my starting Pokemon, and I don't regret it. Even as a Supporter, it can be quite hard to take down, especially with Pollen Guard. It can be a supportive puff, or it can deal massive damage with Cotton Crash/Amp Energy. Your choice
