Aqua Tail Build Explanation

Build Explanation
This build is centered on dealing high burst damage using Aqua Tail. Azumarill will use Water Pulse as its complimentary move for some mobility and additional damage.
· Muscle Band improves Azumarill's attacks via increased damage and attack speed, which also works with Aqua Tail.
· Scope Lens increases Azumarill's critical-hit damage, which mainly comes from Huge Power.
· Energy Amplifier provides Azumarill a massive damage boost whenever it uses Belly Bash.
· X Speed improves Azumarill's overall mobility, allowing it to stay on top of its targets, especially while attacking with Aqua Tail.
· Alternatively, Eject Button can also work just as fine for the build.
· The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Brown emblems for maximum damage and 6 White emblems for additional HP.
· This can be achieved by equipping at least two (2) Emblems that are both Brown and White.
· Equip Emblems that increase Attack, or HP to balance out Azumarill's offense and defense.
· Sp. Atk., Sp. Def, Defense, and Critical-Hit Rate can be freely traded for any of the other stats.

Since the build is centered on Aqua Tail, equipping items that will maximize its damage is the ideal item combination.

As the results show, Muscle Band, Scope Lens, and Energy Amplifier will produce the highest Aqua Tail damage. However, Azumarill does need to use its Unite Move first to maximize its damage.

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

Whirlpool Build Explanation

Build Explanation
This is a more defensive build that revolves around survivability using the healing from Whirlpool. Play Rough will act as the complimentary move for Azumarill, allowing it to stay on top of targets while Whirlpool is active. However, Water Pulse can also work with the build.
· Attack Weight gives Azumarill a large Attack boost, increasing its overall damage output and improving Whirlpool's healing.
· Weakness Policy goes well with the build's survivability gameplay, increasing Azumarill's damage as it takes hits. It also provides the Pokemon with a decent amount of Attack and HP.
· Focus Band improves Azumarill's durability through increased defenses and gives it an additional source of healing.
· X Speed improves Azumarill's overall mobility, allowing it to stay on top of its targets, especially while Whirlpool is active.
· Alternatively, Potion can work nicely with the build, giving Azumarill one more source of healing.
· The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Brown emblems for maximum damage and 6 White emblems for additional HP.
· This can be achieved by equipping at least two (2) Emblems that are both Brown and White.
· Equip Emblems that increase Attack, or HP to balance out Azumarill's offense and defense.
· Sp. Atk., Sp. Def, Defense, and Critical-Hit Rate can be freely traded for any of the other stats.

Since the build is centered on survival via Whirlpool, equipping items that will maximize its damage and healing is the ideal item combination. Focus Band is a core item for the build, leaving two (2) items left for consideration.

As the results show, Weakness Policy and a fully-stacked Attack Weight will yield the best outcome for the build. The item combination generated the highest results for Whirlpool damage and healing. However, Azumarill does need to fully stack Attack Weight first and maintain Weakness Policy stacks to maximize the damage and healing from Whirlpool.

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

Best Held Items

Item Explanation
Attack Weight.pngAttack Weight Attack Weight boosts Azumarill's two main sources of damage, critical-hits and moves, especially when fully stacked.
Buddy Barrier.pngBuddy Barrier Buddy Barrier also gives a decent HP boost. But its best feature is its synergy with Azumarill's Unite Move, giving extra protection through a shield.
Energy Amplifier.pngEnergy Amplifier Energy Amplifier increases Azumarill's damage output through lower cooldowns, faster Unite Move recharge rate, and a percentage-based damage increase when using its Unite Move.
Focus Band.pngFocus Band Focus Band increases Azumarill's static defenses and grants a survivability tool, making up for its underwhelming durability.
Scope Lens.pngScope Lens Scope Lens is well-suited for Azuamrill's passive ability, increasing each critical-hit it makes.
Muscle Band.pngMuscle Band Muscle Band also works well with Azumarill's passive ability thanks to the attack speed increase.

List of Battle Items

Best Moveset

Move Explanation
Water Pulse ImageWater Pulse Water Pulse gives Azumarill some range and mobility. It can punish opponents who are close together during teamfights.
Aqua Tail ImageAqua Tail Aqua Tail gives Azumarill a low-cooldown and high burst damage tool that's effective against single or multiple targets. It also heals Azumarill for a decent amount.

This moveset allows Azumarill to quickly knock out targets during teamfights, which has proven to be the most effective way to win games in general. Aqua Tail deals massive damage in an area while also healing Azumarill. Water Pulse allows Azumarill to punish opponents that are close together during clashes and gives some mobility to the Pokemon.

Aqua Tail and Whirlpool are Azumarill's primary damage moves. Both deal damage in an area and heal the Pokemon but have pros and cons.

Aqua Tail is a great burst-damage move and gives Azumarill some range. It also ignores a target's Defense stat and penetrates through shields, making great for teamfights and defending goal zones against shielded opponents. However, Azumarill does need to keep its distance while attacking to trigger all other effects of Aqua Tail. It also slows down Azumarill while attacking, putting the Pokemon in potential danger.

Whirlpool gives Azumarill both offense and defense in one simple move. The move also allows Azumarill to freely move around, use other moves and items, and perform other tasks while the move is active. However, its area of effect is quite narrow, forcing Azumarill to stay at melee range for Whirlpool to deal damage.

On the other hand, Water Pulse and Play Rough are Azumrill's complimentary moves. Each move gives some form of utility and helps in setting up its other moves.

Water Pulse is both a damage and mobility move, and is great for teamfights. When used, Azumarill rolls towards a direction while shooting a water projectile. This water projectile can bounce multiple times between enemies, dealing damage and slowing them. It pairs well with either Aqua Tail or Whirlpool.

Play Rough is great for chasing targets and staying on top of them. It increases Azumarill's movement speed and allows the Pokemon to lunge at a target, dealing damage and stunning it. However, due to how it works, it only works best with Whirlpool.

How to Play Azumarill

Jump to Section

Play Around Huge Power

Azumarill's gameplay mainly revolves around its passive ability, Huge Power where it can constantly deal high amounts of damage because of critical hits. However, the passive ability only triggers whenever you deal damage to only one enemy. If Azumarill hits two or more enemies at once with a Standard attack or a move, the passive ability will not trigger.

Target Wild Pokemon One-by-One

When farming for EXP, try to focus on a single target, rather than dealing damage to all of them. However, securing grouped Wild Pokemon spawns like the Altaria and Swablus in the middle of the lanes can be a bit tricky. Given that Azumarill's moves like Whirlpool and Aqua Tail can hit multiple targets, it is best to get their aggression and pull the Wild Pokemon towards you while you attack them individually. This will ensure a faster farming time while also preventing your opponents from getting the last hit.

Take the Jungle

Thanks to a great initial moveset, Azumarill is a great candidate for the jungler role. Because Wild Pokemon spawns in the central area are not clumped together, Azumarill can farm them without much effort. And, because taking the jungler role will guarantee level 5, Azumarill benefits from the extra EXP as it can learn its first move upgrade earlier.

Jungle Guide and Best Junglers

Rush Through Objectives

Because of Azumarill's high damage output towards single targets, securing objectives, even while solo, won't be a challenge. Although, it is still recommended to have at least one ally with you to either increase the damage output or defend the area.

Objectives Guide (Remoat Island): When to Target Bosses

Be Mindful of Enemy Numbers

When dealing damage to a target, Huge Power checks whether the attack will land on one or multiple targets. The ability's activation is dependent on the number of targets present as the attack hits, not their proximity to each other. Therefore, you can still trigger the passive ability even if multiple targets are close together, as long as the attack you deal only hits a single target.

Since melee Pokemon can hit multiple targets with their Standard Attacks, it is best to keep your positioning in mind as you let out attacks. The same is true for using moves like Aqua Tail or Play Rough which can deal damage to multiple Pokemon.

Single Out Opponents

Ideally, you should direct your focus on opponents who are out of position or greedy opponents who are overextending. Azumarill is strong enough to take on most Pokemon in a one-on-one duel.

Avoid Getting Caught in the Middle of Clashes

Fighting in the middle of clashes where a lot of opponents are present means that you may not get the full amount of damage possible. It is best to play defensively first and only act when there is an opportunity for you to focus on a single target. Moreover, try to focus down on enemy Attackers behind the lines or Speedsters who is out of position. Nonetheless, you must steer clear away from the chaos and focus on taking down stragglers.

Don't Fight Near Wild Pokemon

Whether you are on the chase or looking to gank, you must engage an opponent clear of Wild Pokemon spawns. Attacking an opponent near a Wild Pokemon camp may cause your moves to hit multiple targets, which will not trigger critical hits. It is best to focus on defeating the Wild Pokemon first so you can fight the opponent properly. One way to help your target is to tune your Attack Controls and assign a button for attacking opponents and Wild Pokemon.

Targeting and Aim Assist: How to Aim Well

Extend Your Reach with Play Rough

Play Rough gives Azumarill extra mobility so it can set up its melee moves. You will only have to get enough range between you and the target to make Azumarill lunge toward its location, allowing you to catch up and get the full value for your Whirlpool or Aqua Tail activation.

Play Rough: Azumarill Move Effect and Cooldown

Initiate with Belly Bash

Use Belly Bash to single out enemies or charge at enemies that are isolated from their team. The damage from the move should be enough to give you an advantage when they decide to fight back.

Belly Bash: Azumarill Move Effect and Cooldown

Take Note of HP Before Using

It is important to note, however, that Azumarill will receive damage before it jumps towards the designated area. Azumarill is still susceptible to getting knocked down, so keep Azumarill's HP in mind before you face the enemy head-on.

Running a Buddy Barrier may help prevent damage loss since it grants you extra shields every time you activate your unite move. It also increases your survivability as you engage with enemies after using your unite move.

Follow Up with Aqua Tail

After initiating Belly Bash, following up with Aqua Tail lets Azumarill deal damage and recover HP as long as the move hits enemies or mob Pokemon within its reach. This is a great way to overwhelm enemies and stall them from securing objectives.

When these two moves are partnered with Water Pulse, Azumarill gains decent mobility and can slow down enemies that it hits.This move also lets Azumarill simply roll away when the situation gets dangerous.

Hard Counter with Crowd Control and Burst Damage

Even though Azumarill is an All-Rounder Pokemon, it is relatively squishy compared to other Pokemon in the same role. Moreover, Azumarill lacks proper mobility and unstoppable moves that can help it reposition or retreat. Although Azumarill can run down opponents with Huge Power, its dependence on fighting single targets and getting support from allies makes it easy to disrupt.

Best Counters

Pokemon Explanation
Trevenant ImageTrevenant Rating: ★★★★★
• Can easily disrupt Azumarill's attacks using Horn Leech, Wood Hammer, and Phantom Forest.
• Has high durability and sustainability that allows it to tank a lot of Azumarill's damage.
Buzzwole ImageBuzzwole Rating: ★★★★
• Can toss around Azumarill and disrupt its attacks using Smack Down, Superpower or Leech Life.
Leafeon ImageLeafeon Rating: ★★★★
• Can easily burst down Azumarill using Leaf Blade, Solar Blade or Razor Leaf, and Emerald Two-Step.
• Has superior movement speed thanks to Chlorophyll that makes it hard for Azumarill to hit it.

Even Matchups

The best way for Azumarill to get the upper hand against these Pokemon is to force them to go 1v1 with Azumarill so its Huge Power can trigger.

Use Belly Bash

Ranged, Fragile Pokemon with High Damage

How to Beat
• These Pokemon prefer to keep their distance from opponents when fighting. They also have high damage potential that can be dangerous for Azumarill. However, they are fragile and can get knocked out by Azumarill fast.
• Use Belly Bash to get close to them and quickly chip away their HP, then finish them off with Aqua Tail or Whirlpool.
• Use Play Rough or Water Pulse to stay on top of them.

Utilize Aqua Tail or Whirlpool's Healing Effect

How to Beat
• Much like Azumarill, these Pokemon excel in close combat and rely mostly on their attacks or combos to deal damage. They are also durable enough to tank Azumarill's damage.
• Utilize Aqua Tail or Whirlpool's healing effect to survive longer in fights while also dealing a ton of damage.
• Use Play Rough or Water Pulse for additional damage.
• As a last resort, use Belly Bash to win the fight.

Utilize Their Numbers

Supporters

How to Beat
• These Pokemon usually stick with their allies and rarely venture alone, making Huge Power almost impossible to trigger. Although they themselves pose no threat to Azumarill, their support capabilities makes them valuable during fights.
• Take advantage of them being in close proximity to each other by using Water Pulse to force them to scatter, then take them out first using Aqua Tail or Whirlpool, and Belly Bash.

Group Up with Allies

Highly Durable Pokemon
Blastoise Image Crustle Image Goodra Image Greedent Image Lapras Image Slowbro Image Snorlax Image Umbreon Image
How to Beat
• These Pokemon are extremely durable, making it difficult for Azumarill to take them down alone. With that, it's best to group up with allies to bring them down with the help of Azumarill.
• Use Aqua Tail or Whirlpool to quickly deplete their HP and help allies bring them down.
• Use Water Pulse or Play Rough to stay on top of them.

Easy Matchups for Azumarill

Easy matchups are Pokemon that cannot stave off Azumarill with their offense. As long as Azumarill does not get disabled or debuffed, it will be able to push through these Pokemon without much resistance.

How to Beat
• These Pokemon prefer to keep their distance from opponents when fighting. They also have high damage potential that can be dangerous for Azumarill. However, they are fragile and can get knocked out by Azumarill fast.
• Use Belly Bash to get close to them and quickly chip away their HP, then finish them off with Aqua Tail or Whirlpool.
• Use Play Rough or Water Pulse to stay on top of them.

How to Beat
• These Pokemon usually stick with their allies and rarely venture alone, making Huge Power almost impossible to trigger. Although they themselves pose no threat to Azumarill, their support capabilities makes them valuable during fights.
• Take advantage of them being in close proximity to each other by using Water Pulse to force them to scatter, then take them out first using Aqua Tail or Whirlpool, and Belly Bash.
