Best Moveset

Move Type Effect
Ancient Power RockRock It damages an enemy. It could also boost your Attack, Defense, Sp. Atk, Sp. Def, and Travel Speed. The stats return to normal when you go to the next floor or step on a Wonder Tile.
Razor Leaf GrassGrass It damages a Pokemon, even one far away. It has a high critical-hit rate.
Reflect PsychicPsychic You and your teammates in the same room get the Reflect condition, which reduces the damage taken from physical moves.
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.

Notes

  • Other moves to consider Light Screen, Sunny Day.
  • Chikorita isn't a good Pokemon coverage wise. What it provides is defensive capability through Reflect and Light Screen.
