Night Slash Build Explantion

This build utilizes the cooldown reduction, healing, and increased critical-hit rate from Night Slash and the increased attack speed effect from Trailblaze to burst down targets using attacks.

  • Muscle Band gives Meowscarada increased attack speed and improves its damage for each attack, which synergizes well with the buffs from Night Slash and Trailblaze.
  • Scope Lens increases Meowscarada's critical-hit rate and damage, which works perfectly with Night Slash's increased critical-hit rate effect.
  • Razor Claw further improves Meowscarada's attacks by adding damage and a slow effect to them whenever it uses a move. It also gives a little more critical-hit rate.
  • X Speed allows Meowscarada to stay close to its targets when attacking them.
  • Eject Button can also work to serve the same purpose.
  • Alternatively, X Attack can also be used to improve Meowscarada's attack damage and speed.
  • The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Brown Emblems for more damage and 6 White Emblems additional HP. This can be achieved by having at least two (2) Emblems that are both Brown and White.
  • Equip Emblems that improve Attack or Critical-Hit Rate to further improve Meowscarada's attacks.
  • Sp. Atk., Sp. Def., and Defense can be freely traded for the other stats.

Flower Trick Build Explanation

This build is centered on dealing high area damage using Flower Trick and Double Team. However, Trailblaze can be learned insetad of Double Team to emphasize attack damage more.

  • Razor Claw adds burst damage to Meowscarada's attacks whenever it uses a move.
  • Attack Weight provides Meowscarada a large flat Attack stat boost, increasing its overall damage output.
  • Float Stone gives Meowscarada more Attack stat for damage and increases its movement speed.
  • Eject Button gives Meowscarada another repositioning tool on top of its dash moves.
  • X Attack can also be used, particularly when learning Trailblaze instead of Double Team.
  • The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Brown Emblems for more damage and 6 White Emblems additional HP. This can be achieved by having at least two (2) Emblems that are both Brown and White.
  • Equip Emblems that improve Attack or Critical-Hit Rate to further improve Meowscarada's damage.
  • Sp. Atk., Sp. Def., and Defense can be freely traded for the other stats.

Since the build is centered on dealing burst damage using Flower Trick and Double Team, equipping items that will maximize their damage is the best item combination.

As the results show, Muscle Band or Razor Claw, Attack Weight, and Float Stone will be the best for the build. However, between Muscle Band and Razor Claw, the latter would be the better choice since it adds a powerful burst damage to Meowscarada's attacks, which will be benefitial for the build's goal.

If Trailblaze is learned instead of Double Team, replacing Float Stone with Muscle Band would be the ideal build. The item combination is better suited to Trailblaze's effects since it improves Meowscarada's attacks.

Battle Item Tier List

Best Moveset

Move Explanation
Night Slash ImageNight Slash Night Slash gives Meowscarada a decent burst damage tool that can also improve its attacks. It can also be spammed a lot thanks to its cooldown reduction mechanic.
Trailblaze ImageTrailblaze Trailblaze provides Meowscarada with incredible mobility, allowing the Pokemon to leap on targets with increased movement speed and attack speed. It also synergizes well with Night Slash.

With the buffs from the 1.13.1.3 update, this moveset became significantly better for Meowscarada, making it a more effective assassin. Night Slash's improved healing effect now allows Meowscarada to fight longer, especially in an intense duel. Meanwhile, Trailblaze's enhanced range significantly improved the Pokemon's mobility and made it more cunning.

Flower Trick and Night Slash are Meowscarada's primary damage moves. Both serve the same purpose, but they differ in how they function. Flower Trick is a more straightfoward damage move that deals high burst damage on its own. On the other hand, although Night Slash also deals damage on its own, it is the move's increased critical-hit rate effect that gives it the potential to deal high burst damage. This means that the move relies mainly on Meowscarada's attacks to deal most of its potential damage.

Double Team and Trailblaze are Meowscarada's dash moves that offer some utility and offense in different forms. Double Team creates an illusion of Meowscarada that can soak damage from opponents but cannot attack. When the move is used again, Meowscarada swaps places with the illusion, dealing damage in an area around the Pokemon and the illusion. Meanwhile, Trailblaze deals significantly lesser damage compared to Double Team but gives Meowscarada a movement speed increase and a massive attack speed increase, which can be utilized to push the offense.

Generally, Flower Trick is best paired with Double Team since the combo that Meowscarada can perform is faster to do. However, Trailblaze can also work nicely with Flower Trick, but the combo takes longer to execute since Meowscarada will rely on its attacks. As for Night Slash, Trailblaze should always be its pair since Meowscarada will rely mostly on its attacks if it learns the move, which is something that Trailblaze can improve.

How to Play Meowscarada

Jump to Section

Play Safe Until Level 6

It's best to play safe until Meowscarada reaches at least level 6. The Pokemon doesn't do much in the early game and needs to level up quick to before making an impact.

Use Leafage to Secure Knockouts and Wild Pokemon

Leafage deals considerable damage to a single target if all of its projectiles hit. Use Leafage to either secure knockouts or wild Pokemon, allowing Meowscarada to gain experience for leveling up.

Leafage: Meowscarada Move Effect and Cooldown

Utilize Hone Claw

Hone Claw is a dash move that also improves Meowscarada's next three (3) basic attacks. Meowscarada can use Hone Claw to farm quickly, push the offense or escape fights.

Hone Claws: Meowscarada Move Effect and Cooldown

Utilize Boosted Attacks

Meowscarada lunges at the target whenever it performs its Boosted Attacks. Although a simple mechanic, the ability to lunge at opponents allows Meowscarada to stay on top of its targets, especially since it's a melee Pokemon. Incorporating Boosted Attacks in Meowscarada's combos is also a great way to utilize them. It can also be used to simply travel faster.

Utilize Each Effect of Overgrow

Overgrow makes Meowscarada invisible, move faster, deal increased damage, and recover HP when dealing damage. Although these effects occur simultaneously, Meowscarada can utilize the effects individually in various situations. Knowing how to utilize each effect allows Meowscarada to get the upper hand and win fights.

Overgrow: Passive Effect and Cooldown

Maximize Time While Invisible

When overgrow triggers, Meowscarada becomes invisible for a short duration. Use this time window to decide the best thing to do in the situation instead of just attacking right away. An example would be using the time window to hunt opponents that are isolated from their allies during fights. Remember that Mewoscarada also has increased movement speed when Overgrow is triggered, making it easier to move around and finding an opportunity.

Deal Damage Quickly to Heal

While Overgrow is active, Meowscarada recovers HP when it deals damage to opposing Pokemon. Take advantage of this effect by using Mewoscarada's high burst moves to quickly deal high amounts of damage and heal up. Remember that Meowscarada also deals increased damage during Overgrow, which also increases the amount of HP the Pokemon recovers.

Push the Offense with the Damage Increase

Since Meowscarada deals increased damage during Overgrow, pushing the offense can yield high rewards for the Pokemon and its team. However, if Mewoscarada's HP is dangerously low, it's best to just retreat.

Alter Gameplay Depending on Move Learned

Although Meowscarada's core gameplay is that of any assassin, its gameplay will alter slightly depending on whether it learns Flower Trick or Night Slash. Making these slight adjustments to Mewoscarada's gameplay will improve its performance in the game.

Aim for Grouped Opponents When Using Flower Trick

To maximize Flower Trick's damage, it's best to use it on a target that is close to its allies, espcially during teamfights. Doing so ensures that Flower Trick's explosion affects multiple opponents instead of just the initial target.

Flower Trick: Meowscarada Move Effect and Cooldown

Aim for Isolated Opponents When Using Night Slash

Since Meowscarada will rely mostly on its attacks when using Night Slash, the Pokemon is better off hunting targets that are far from their team instead of taking on multiple opponents at once, allowing Meowscarada to focus all its attacks on one target. This refers mostly to Pokemon that remain in the backlines during a fight and provide constant damage from afar.

Night Slash: Meowscarada Move Effect and Cooldown

Watch Out for Pokemon with Strong Disables

Meowscarada struggles against Pokemon with a lot of strong disables since it needs to get to melee range to burst down targets. If the Pokemon is always stunned and can't attack opponents, it becomes extremely difficult for Meowscarada to execute its gameplay properly. Try to dodge disabling moves as much as possible or wait for them to go on cooldown before engaging in a fight.

Pokemon to Watch Out For
Alolan Ninetales ImageAlolan Ninetales Mamoswine ImageMamoswine Slowbro ImageSlowbro

Dive the Frontlines with Floral Flourish

Floral Flourish is an extremely powerful area move that's perfect for big teamfights. Use Floral Flourish to break the enemy's frontlines and force them to retreat or scatter. Remember that Mewoscarada will leap first into the designated location when it uses Floral Flourish.

Floral Flourish: Meowscarada Move Effect and Cooldown

Use Eject Button or Shedinja Doll to Alter Movement

Since using Floral Flourish forces Meowscarada to move in a fixed path, having either Eject Button or Shedinja Doll allows Meowscarada to have some control over its movement.

When using Eject Button, Meowscarada can change its walking direction during Floral Flourish. This is good for choosing specific targets to focus on.

On the other hand, Shedinja Doll allows Meowscarada to stay in one spot and avoid all damage. This is great for when there are ally Pokemon that can stun opponents in place or slow them.

Battle Items
Eject Button.pngEject Button Shedinja Doll.pngShedinja Doll

Cancel If Needed

Meowscarada can stop Floral Flourish immediately by using the move again. It's best to cancel the move when opponents are too far away from the move's area, allowing Meowscarada to do other things instead.

Close the Gap

Ranged, Fragile Pokemon with High Damage
Cinderace Image Inteleon Image Mega Mewtwo Y Image Mew Image Venusaur Image
How to Beat
• These Pokemon prefer to keep their distance from opponents when fighting and have means to do so. They also have high damage potential that can knock out Meowscarada quickly. However, they are fragile and can also get knocked out by Meowscarada fast.
• If Meowscarada learned Night Slash, use Trailblaze to quickly get to melee range, hit them with Night Slash, then follow up with a barrage of attacks to burst them down.
• If Meowscarada learned Flower Trick, use Double Team while approaching them, attach Flower Trick, swap positions with the illusion, then detonate Flower Trick to burst them down.

Bait Their Moves Then Retaliate

Mobile Pokemon with High Burst Damage
Absol Image Dodrio Image Gengar Image Leafeon Image Talonflame Image Zeraora Image Zoroark Image
How to Beat
• These Pokemon have the same gameplay as Meowscarada. They rely mostly on their moves to burst down opponents, and are also mobile and can quickly get in and out of fights.
• The best strategy is to bait out their moves first, either by allowing them to use it on other targets or dodging them completely, then strike swiftly to burst them down while their moves are on cooldown.

Pair Up with an Ally

Brawlers
Azumarill Image Dragonite Image Mega Mewtwo X Image Tyranitar Image Zacian Image
How to Beat
• These Pokemon excel in close combat and rely mostly on their attacks to deal damage. They are also durable enough to survive Meowscarada's initial damage. Although Meowscarada won't be able to take them out in just one assault, the Pokemon can deal considerable damage to them.
• It's best to pair up with an ally when going against them to quickly take them out.
• Use Meowscarda's combos to quickly take out a large portion of their HP, then let allies follow through, or vice-versa.

Dodge Their Combos

Combo-Heavy Pokemon
Aegislash Image Blaziken Image Lucario Image Machamp Image Mimikyu Image Scizor Image Tsareena Image Urshifu Image
How to Beat
• These Pokemon rely primarily on doing their combos to deal damage. Use Trailblaze or Double Team to dodge their combos, then retaliate with Flower Trick or Night Slash and attacks while their moves are on cooldown.

Watch Out for Their Disables

Pokemon with Crowd Control
Mr. Mime Image Wigglytuff Image
How to Beat
• These Pokemon have disables that can disrupt Meowscarada's offense, but their damage is average compared to others. Meowscarada can deal with them with no problem but still has to be cautious of their disables since that's their main weapon against the Pokemon.
• Use Trailblaze or Double Team to dodge their disables.
• Burst them down using Flower Trick or Night Slash and follow up with attacks.

Group Up with Allies

Highly Durable Pokemon
Goodra Image Greedent Image Lapras Image
How to Beat
• These Pokemon are extremely durable and have means of consistently healing themselves, making it a tedious task for Meowscarada to take them down alone. With that, it's best to group up with allies to bring them down with the help of Meowscarada.

Easy Matchups

Easy matchups are Pokemon that have little no to reliable disables to disrupt Meowscarada's attacks, low durability, and low mobility.

Close the Gap

Backline Attackers
Gardevoir Image Pikachu Image Decidueye Image Duraludon Image Espeon Image Delphox Image Glaceon Image Chandelure Image
How to Beat
• These Pokemon typically remain in the backlines of a teamfight and provide consistent damage using their moves. However, they have little to no mobility and can easily fall to Meowscarada. Head straight for them using Trailblaze or Double Team and burst them down with Flower Trick or Niglt Slash and attacks.

Match Their Mobility

Pokemon with Mobility
Dragapult Image Greninja Image Sableye Image Sylveon Image
How to Beat
• These Pokemon have some mobility or means to escape Meowcarada but can fall easily once Meowcarada gets close to them. They also need to go in and out of the frontlines to deal damage, even the ranged Pokemon in the list.
• Use Trailblaze or Double Team to match their mobility, then burst them down with Flower Trick or Night Slash and attacks.

Cripple Their Progression

Late Bloomers
Charizard Image Garchomp Image
How to Beat
• These Pokemon are weak in the early game and takes a long time before they can reach their power spike.
• Once Meowscarada reaches level 6 and learns either Flower Trick or Night Slash, get aggressive and keep hunting them.

Use Floral Flourish

Supporters
Blissey Image Clefable Image Comfey Image Eldegoss Image Hoopa Image
How to Beat
• These Pokemon usually stick with their allies and rarely venture alone. Although they themselves pose no threat to Meowscarada, their support capabilities makes them valuable during fights. Take advantage of them being in close proximity to each other by using Floral Flourish on their position, forcing them to scatter.
