This is build is centered around pouncing targets with Night Slash, then following up with Psycho Cut and a couple of basic attacks for a consistent stream of critical damage. Use Night Slash's second activation to finish them off. The critical-hit rate increase you get from the Night Slash's second activation is based on the target's missing health, so it's crucial to deplete the target's HP first before lunging. You need to be extremely cautious when diving targets since you won't have any defensive items.

Muscle Band, Scope Lens, and Razor Claw provide all the things you need to quickly take down your targets, attack speed, damage, critical-hit rate, and critical-hit damage. Be careful, since you are trading defense and survivability for extra damage, be sure to only engage a target if you thin

Eject Button is crucial for this build, acting as your only means of escaping should things go bad.

Your Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Brown Emblems for maximum Attack stat, 3 Red Emblems for more Attack Speed, and 1 Emblem of any color. Equip Emblems that improve Critical-Hit Rate or Attack since this is a full-offense build. You can freely trade Sp. Atk, Movement speed, Sp. Def, and Defense.

Scope Lens and Razor Claw boost your critical-hit rate and damage since it's your primary source of damage. Buddy Barrier gives you decent durability via increased HP, and provides survivability after using your Unite Move.

Eject Button adds more mobility on top of your moves, allowing you to reposition and isolate a target.

Your Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Brown Emblems for maximum Attack stat and 4 White Emblems for added HP. Equip Emblems that improve Critical-Hit Rate or Attack since the build is damage oriented. You can freely trade Sp. Atk, Movement speed, Sp. Def, and Defense.

Attack Weight, Scope Lens, and Razor Claw all contribute in amplifying your critical-hit damage and have great synergy with each other.

Eject Button helps you chase enemies as well as escape them. However, you can also equip X Speed for a similar effect.

This build makes use of Pursuit's cooldown reduction effect when attacking a target from behind, and Psycho Cut's slow and damage increase. You'll be using the Cut to Pursuit Combo as your core combo.

Muscle Band and Scope Lens are standard damage item duo, increasing your attack speed and damage. Buddy Barrier increases your durability through an HP boost, and gives survivability after you use your Unite Move.

Eject Button is your default battle item, giving you an offensive and defensive tool. However, if want more damage on top of Psycho Cut's damage increase, equip X Attack instead.

Your Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Brown Emblems for maximum Attack stat, 3 Red Emblems for more Attack Speed, and 1 Emblem of any color.

Best Moveset

Move Explanation
Psycho Cut ImagePsycho Cut Psycho Cut can quickly drain a target's HP with just a couple of hits. It can also be used as a ranged move if the target manages to get distance from Absol.
Night Slash ImageNight Slash Night Slash a the perfect move for assassinating targets. It can burst down multiple targets and finish them off in quick succession.

Absol's gameplay is centered around critical hits to take out enemy Pokemon quickly. For a more assassin-like playstyle, you can learn Pursuit to make aiming more convenient. Combining that with Sucker Punch allows you to stick to your targets easily. Otherwise, you can stick to Psycho Cut if your build takes advantage of quick Standard Attacks.

How to Play Absol

Jump to Section

Get Aggressive Early On

Absol is strong even early on thanks to its high critical-hit rate and damage. Get aggressive in the early game to pressure your enemies and force them to be defensive.

Take the Jungler Role

Absol is best played as a jungler so it can level up faster and learn its primary moveset. Make sure to communicate with your team that you'll be going to the jungle before the match begins to avoid confusion and tensions.

Jungle Guide and Best Junglers

Keep Hunting Targets

You can set the tempo of the game if you can keep hunting targets. This allows you to create space for your team to level up and take objectives while crippling the enemy team. It's also the best way for Absol to snowball and take over the game.

Aim for Isolated Targets

If you encounter an opponent that's far away from its team, aim for them and burst them down. You'll have more chances of winning in this situation since Absol excels in 1v1 fights.

Approach from the Side or Behind or In Grass

When hunting enemies or during teamfights, it's best to approach your target from the side, behind, or grass. This allows you to avoid the frontline and dive the backlines quickly and safely.

Disengage When Moves Miss

Disengage immediately when your moves miss, and don't try to force a fight. Wait until your moves become available again before attempting to fight once more.

Use Midnight Slash

If it becomes difficult for you to disengage, use Midnight Slash as an emergency escape tool. However, it's not neccessary to do this all the time, only in dire situations. Remember that Midnight Slash is a powerful offensive move so using it defensively is risky.

Midnight Slash: Absol Move Effect and Cooldown

Utilize Psycho Cut's Effects

Although Psycho Cut is a simple move, you can utilize its effects in various scenarios, increasing its overall effectiveness.

Psycho Cut: Absol Move Effect and Cooldown

Catch Up to Enemies

Psycho Cut has a decent cast range and slows targets when it hits, allowing you to catch up to fleeing enemies.

Prioritize Affected Targets

You can deal more damage with your attacks against targets hit by Psycho Cut. It's best to prioritize affected targets during fights to take advantage of the increased damage.

Progression and Leveling Guide

Top or Bottom Lane Guide

Level Objectives
1 - 6 • Secure as many Wild Pokemon as you can and get EXP. Steal camps with Feint.
• Steer clear from the enemy Attackers as they can easily pressure Absol's HP from afar.
• Once you learn either Pursuit or Night Slash, you can face off against easy matchups and potentially knock them down to leave their goal zone open. Otherwise, focus on using them to farm Wild Pokemon camps to reach higher levels.
7 - 9 • Once Absol reaches level 7, it will get its move upgrades. This drastically increases the Pokemon's damage output.
• When the first objectives spawn, rally your teammates and initiate the fight. Because of Absol's high damaging critical hits, you will be able to solo objectives if the situation demands it. Otherwise, it is better to have teammates present.
• Use Midnight Slash as a finisher or a way to disengage from a losing fight. It is best to use it towards grouped opponents, but using it in a combo to knock down a single target is also a good strategy.
10+ • Once you reach level 10, you can face off against even matchups using your move combos. Make sure you land your moves properly as completely missing them will likely result in a loss.
• The next objective spawns are much easier to contest thanks to the increase in damage output you received from move upgrades. Rally your teammates to lead the charge towards securing Regieleki or Regice, Registeel, or Regirock.

Jungle Guide

Level Objectives
1 - 5 • Clear the first wave of jungle camps and level up to level 5. Use Feint to cover more ground while also dealing damage. Then, transition to the lane that is closest to you.
• Hide in the tall grass and wait for the opposing team to over-extend. Engage the opponent with Night Slash or Pursuit. It is best to focus down on a single opponent before moving on to another target. When the gank fails, however, do not chase targets towards goal zones.
• Help the lane secure the Altaria and Swablus.
• If the opportunity presents itself, score your accumulated Aeos Energy.
6 - 9 • Clear the second wave of jungle camps to reach level 7 and get both of your primary moveset.
• Transition back to a lane and help secure its respective objective.
• Having access to either Psycho Cut or Sucker Punch greatly increases Absol's range. Seek out and knock down easy targets like enemy Attackers or Supporters.
10+ • Continue farming Wild Pokemon to maintain your level advantage. While Absol is capable of bursting down single targets, try not to get aggressive too much as opponents have, at this point, access to their move upgrades and Unite Move.
• During the final stretch, focus on knocking down opponents instead of Rayquaza.

Hard Counter with Durable Pokemon

Pokemon that are highly durable, and have a hard disable can counter Absol's critical-hit gameplay. High-durability prevents Absol from bursting down a Pokemon quickly, discouraging Absol to pursue the Pokemon. Hard lockdowns completely shut down Absol's gameplay, preventing Absol to position properly to deal damage.

Even Matchups
