Best Partner for Cyndaquil

Pokemon Type
Skitty ImageSkitty
Type 1: NormalNormal

Type 2:

Considering, Cyndaquil's weaknesses, Skitty is the best partner. With access to Charge Beam and Grass Knot from the beginning, Skitty starts out already covering Cyndaquil's weaknesses to Water-, Rock-, and Ground-type moves.

On top of that, Skitty also has access to a wide range of moves like Ice Beam that cover Pokemon types that Cyndaquil can't hit as hard.

Notes

  • Double Kick and Wild Charge provides Cyndaquil with the type coverage it needs for the game.
  • Double Kick is a strong move like all multi-hit moves in the game.
  • Two fire moves are used in this moveset. Fire Blast is for raw power and Flamethrower is for range.
  • Other moves to consider for coverage is Rollout an Aerial Ace.
