Best Pokemon for the Story

Best Partner for Skitty

Pokemon Type
Psyduck ImagePsyduck
Type 1: WaterWater

Type 2:

While Skitty has pretty wide coverage thanks to its movepool, it still needs protection from Fighting-types, which Psyduck can provide through its Psychic-type moves.

As a Water-type Pokemon, Psyduck can also cover Rock-type Pokemon, which resist Normal-type moves.

Best Moveset

Move Type Effect
Double Slap NormalNormal It damages an enemy 2 to 5 times in a row.
Ice Beam IceIce It fires off a cold beam, damaging a Pokemon, even one far away. It could also make the enemy Frozen.
Solar Beam GrassGrass You'll get the Solar Beam condition, which lets you charge power to try a powerful attack on the next turn. During Sunny weather or in Extremely Harsh Sunlight, it charges for an immediate attack on the first turn. But during Rain, Heavy Rain, Hail, or a Sandstorm, the damage will be reduced.
Thunderbolt ElectricElectric It damages nearby enemies. It could also cause Paralysis.

Notes

  • STAB Double Slap provides Skitty with a go-to move for the whole game. If Skitty has access to the Steamroll Rare Quality, then Double Slap can take out any non-boss Pokemon in the game in one turn.
  • Ice Beam and Solar Beam, Thunderbolt provide Skitty with both excellent coverage and the range that Double Slap lacks. Skitty has low Sp. Atk, but through leveling, stat-boost items and held items, Special Attacks can be a great tool.
  • When using Solar Beam, a Groudon can be useful as it can provide both Sunlight and Extremely Harsh Sunlight.
  • Other moves to consider are Blizzard, Shadow Ball and Thunder.
