PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Poison Jab should be paired with Sludge Bomb for decent Poison-type DPS.
  • Bite should be paired with Crunch to counter Psychic- and Ghost-types.
  • Flamethrower shouldn’t be used offensively.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Poison Jab is the superior move on defense.

  • Sludge Bomb and Crunch are both hard to dodge; the latter will be fired more often and can punish Metagross attackers, but not Machamp.

  • Flamethrower doesn’t have great coverage here either.

PVE Overview

This mischievous skunk is actually not that bad of a Poison attacker, sitting right behind Roserade, Gengar, Toxicroak and Victreebel. However, that’s mostly due to lack of competition and it’s a mostly irrelevant role in the raid meta. As a Dark-type, Skuntank is outclassed by numerous Pokemon, but it’s still viable as a budget option for players who might lack optimal counters.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Poison Jab or Bite + Crunch and Sludge Bomb or Flamethrower

Poison Jab is usually preferred over Bite due to its significantly greater energy gains, though both gain STAB. 

Crunch is required most of the time due to its lower 45 energy cost, in addition to its respectable STAB damage output. Sludge Bomb takes advantage of STAB to outperform Flamethower from a stats perspective, but the former offers more meaningful coverage, including in the mirror match. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 3 / 5

Skuntank gained attention relatively early in the PvP scene as a Pokemon with decent bulk, a relatively quick and strong moveset, and only a single weakness to Ground-type attacks. This made it quite popular in the Silph Arena's Twilight Cup in the early months of the PvP scene, though Skuntank has struggled to see significant usage outside of that format. Poison-type coverage isn't very valuable in open formats, and Skuntank will find it difficult to apply shield pressure with Bite and unspectacular bulk. 

Ultra League: 2.5 / 5

Skuntank's Dark typing is quite valuable in a meta that's largely dominated by Giratina. Unfortunately with a max CP of 2358, Skuntank would appreciate having more stats to improve its performance. While Poison Jab movesets may struggle to beat Giratina, Bite movesets tend to cause more polarized matchups, especially against Fighting and Fairy-types like Togekiss. Overall not the most impressive pick in Ultra League, and without better results against Giratina as a Dark-type, its rating isn't likely going to improve. 

Master League: 0 / 5

Skuntank barely has enough stats for Ultra League, let alone Master League.
