Crowd Control Build Explanation

Build Explanation
This build is centered around providing constant crowd control using Wood Hammer and Horn Leech. Remember to follow up with attacks after using Horn Leech to reduce its cooldown.
· Attack Weight gives Trevenant a large damage boost, particularly for its moves.
· Aeos Cookie significantly boosts Trevenant's HP, increasing its ability's healing and allowing the Pokemon to soak more damage.
· Focus Band adds more durability to Trevenant and acts as another source of healing.
· X Speed gives Trevenant the mobility to get close to its enemies to use its moves.
· Potion can also work with the build, giving Trevenant an additional source of healing.
· The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 White Emblems for maximum HP and 6 Brown Emblems for additional damage.
· This can be achieved by equipping at least two (2) Emblems that are both White and Brown.
· Equip Emblems that improve Attack or HP for more damage or durability.
· Sp. Atk, and Critical-Hit can be freely traded for the other stats.

Since the build is centered on Wood Hammer and Horn Leech, equipping items that will maximize their damage is the ideal item combination. Aeos Cookie and Focus Band are core items for the build, leaving only one (1) item for consideration.

As the results show, a fully-stacked Attack Weight will produced the highest results for the build. Although Trevenant needs fully stack the item first to gain the full benefit of the build, the Pokemon won't have trouble doing so, especially in the early game, since it's durable enough to tank damage and mobile enough to quickly score and escape.

These damage tests are conducted using the Training Dummy in Practice Mode.

Pain Split Build Explanation

Build Explanation
This build focuses on tanking damage using Pain Split and supporting allies with crowd control using Wood Hammer.
· Exp. Share is Trevenant's core support item, allowing the Pokemon and its lane partner to level up faster. It also boosts the Pokemon's HP and movement speed, which suits the Pokemon's gameplay.
· Focus Band serves as Trevenant's primary tank item, increasing its durability and giving it another source of healing.
· Buddy Barrier gives Trevenant a teamfight item, especially in the late game, and gives a large amount of HP for additional durability.
· Potion works best for the build since Trevenant will be mainly tanking damage, especially during Pain Split, allowing it to survive longer in fights.
· However, should mobility be an issue, X Speed would be the best option.
· The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 White Emblems for maximum HP and 6 Brown Emblems for additional damage.
· This can be achieved by equipping at least two (2) Emblems that are both White and Brown.
· Equip Emblems that improve HP for a larger health pool.
· Sp. Atk, and Critical-Hit can be freely traded for the other stats.

The combination of Wood Hammer and Horn Leech makes Trevenant a hard-hitting disabler. The moveset can control enemy movement, which is extremely effective during teamfights.

For a more damage-oriented build, use Curse instead of Wood Hammer. As for a full-on tank, learn Pain Split instead of Wood Hammer.

How to Play Trevenant

Jump to Section

Manage Trevenant's Health

What makes Trevenant unique from other Pokemon in the roster is how it focuses on sustaining moves to generate an advantage over opponents. Thanks to its assortment of healing moves, as well as its passive ability, aggressive plays are encouraged. This makes its play more of a bruiser that initiates fights without needing a supporter ally.

One of its moves, Curse, can deal continuous damage to nearby enemies, but it also slowly drains Trevenant's HP while the move is active. So, it is important to manage Trevenant's HP as you maintain aggression in pushing lanes and clashing with the enemy team. Make sure you have enough HP to sacrifice before using your moves.

Avoid Facing Off Against Fast Attackers

Trevenant can win the long game against other sturdy Pokemon thanks to its ability to sustain itself with constant HP recovery. However, Trevenant can easily be countered by Pokemon that are fast enough to melt through its defenses and healing. Pokemon like Cinderace and Greninja can take advantage of their fast attacks and mobility to get out of Curse and Pain Split range. If you have it learned, you can use Horn Leech to disable targets for a short time while also displacing them along the move's path, giving you time for a counter-attack. Alternatively, you can use the move to retreat.

Utilize Boosted Attacks

Trevenant can also heal itself whenever it hits a target with its Boosted Attacks. Utilizing this mechanic can prolong Trevenant's life during fights.

Get Around with Branch Poke in the Early Game

During the early game, Branch Poke gives Trevenant extra mobility to either flank opponents or retreat from losing fights. When it gets to learn its next set of damaging move upgrades at level 7, Branch Poke will be key for getting Trevenant close to the enemy enough to get within range.

Branch Poke: Trevenant Move Effect and Cooldown

Utilize Branch Poke's Healing in the Early Game

Use Branch Poke on enemies or grouped Wild Pokemon to recover some HP in the early game. The more enemies you hit, the more HP you'll recover.

Take Advantage of Your Move's Second Activation

When using Curse or Wood Hammer, keep in mind that it can be activated a second time when certain conditions are met.

For Wood Hammer, you can follow up the initial sweep with an additional heavy slam if you hit at least one enemy.

Curse, on the other hand, can be ended when you feel the Trevenant's health is too low. Moreover, activating Curse the second time when the meter below Trevenant's health instantly removes your second move's cooldown.

Pick Utility Move Based on Enemy Team

Choosing between Pain Split and Horn Leech should depend on the enemy's team composition because each move is more effective if it's used against certain Pokemon types.

Learn Pain Split for High Damage Dealers

Since Pain Split returns a percentage of the damage Trevenant receives back to the linked target, it's effective against Pokemon with high damage output like Absol. However, it's best if Natural Care is available first before linking, allowing you to recover HP when you have low HP and take in more damage.

Pain Split: Trevenant Move Effect and Cooldown

Learn Horn Leech for Mobile Opponents

Horn Leech is great against Pokemon with a lot of mobility tools like Dodrio because of the move's shove and stun effects. It locks them down and displaces them, allowing you and your team to burst them down before they can escape.

Horn Leech: Trevenant Move Effect and Cooldown

Know When to Use Phantom Forrest

Phantom Forest is a great utility move for both offensive and defensive plays. All opponents caught within the affected area will make basic attacks from all allies deal more damage, so it is best to use the move before a clash happens to get an upper hand. Additionally, Phantom Forest has a fast activation time and decent range, making it great for targetting securing objectives from afar.

• Use Horn Leech and Wood Hammer to disrupt their attacks or combos. Trevenant can also utilize Cruse's cooldown reset mechanic, allowing the Pokemon to use Horn Leech twice in a row to disrupt them.
• When using Pain Split, use it on them once they approach to reflect some of the damage they deal, then keep using Wood Hammer or Curse to deal damage.
• Utilize Boosted Attacks to keep healing Trevenant when brawling with them.

Best Teammates for Trevenant

Pokemon Explanation
Aegislash ImageAegislash Cinderace ImageCinderace Standard Attack Damage Dealers
Pokemon that mainly rely on their attacks can benefit from Trevenant's durability, crowd control moves, and debuffs. Trevenant can tank damage for them and use Horn Leech and Wood Hammer to keep enemies away from them or to prevent targets from escaping. Moreover, they can deal more damage to enemies hit by Phantom Forest, making it easier for them to take out targets.
Urshifu ImageUrshifu Wigglytuff ImageWigglytuff Venusaur ImageVenusaur Non-Defender Frontliners
Non-Defender Pokemon that can charge the frontlines alongside Trevenant makes for a strong duo. If they have disabling moves like Sing, both them and Trevenant can keep enemies in place for a long duration, allowing the rest of the team to follow up with their moves and attacks. Trevenant can also help set up charge-up moves like Wicked Blow using its crowd control moves.
Comfey ImageComfey Eldegoss ImageEldegoss Dedicated Supporters
Pokemon that can provide additional means of survivability to Trevenant makes the Pokemon extremely hard to take out. Moves like Cotton Guard, Floral Healing and Pollen Puff can prevent Natural Care from triggering at bad timings by keeping Trevenant's HP above the threshold. Moreover, moves like Leaf Tornado and Magical Leaf enable Trevenant to be more aggressive and allow it to stay on top of targets, especially during Curse.

Has the user create a cursed zone in exchange for some of its HP, dealing damage over time to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect and decreasing their movement speed. The lower the user’s HP is, the greater the decrease in movement speed. While using this move, the user builds up curse power every time it deals or receives damage. Releasing this built-up power will deal additional damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect. If the curse power is at maximum when it’s released, the cooldowns of Branch Poke, Horn Leech, and Pain Split are reset.
Upgrade: Increases this move's area of effect.

Colliding with an opposing Pokémon while charging recovers the user’s HP, and the lower the user’s remaining HP, the more HP is recovered. At the end of the charge, the opposing Pokémon that were shoved are dealt additional damage and then thrown. After this move hits an opposing Pokémon, the mechanics of the user’s next three basic attacks change. These changed basic attacks deal increased damage and reduce this move’s cooldown when they hit.

Creates a link between the user and a designated opposing Pokémon. While the link holds, the user redirects a portion of the damage it receives to the linked Pokémon. The lower the user’s remaining HP, the greater the percentage of damage that is redirected. Additionally, if the user’s percentage of remaining HP is lower than the linked Pokémon’s, this move continuously recovers the user’s HP and deals damage over time to the linked Pokémon. If the user and the linked opposing Pokémon are too far apart, the link will disappear. Using this move increases the user’s movement speed for a short time.
Upgrade: Increases the time the link persists before disappearing on its own.

For a short time afterward, the basic attacks of all allied Pokémon deal increased damage to opposing Pokémon that were hit by this Unite Move. The user is also granted a shield when this Unite Move is used. If this Unite Move hits any Pokemon on the opposing team, the shield effect becomes stronger the more Pokemon on the opposing team are hit. While the user is shielded, HP recovery effects applied to the user are strengthened.

When this HP recovery effect ends, there is a delay until it can trigger again. However, this delay is reduced each time one of the Pokémon’s moves hits an opposing Pokémon.
