Pokemon Analysis

Overview

Since his Passive Skill Boosts Damage based on how full the Move Guage is, it’s best to buy all Move Guage capacity increases from the Exchange Shop early on. 

Empoleon can deal powerful Attacks that will only get faster while slowing down his Enemies.

However, no amount of Speed Buffs will help him to outrun the issues that come from generally average stats.

Strengths

Empoleon can increase his own Speed and Critical Hit Rate and lower the Speed of his Enemies, meaning he’ll start the match dealing slow but powerful Attacks, but gradually turn the tides to be more in his favor with faster Attacks against slower Enemies.

Weaknesses

Empoleon’s toolkit has a lot of good features, but none that are especially great that stick out from the pack. His stats are all average or high, a fast-charging AOE Attack is always a plus, and his Speed and Critical Rate Buff makes him a good choice for Critical Hit Teams, but there’s nothing particularly game-changing about this Pokemon. 

Team Synergy

Empoleon will fit right in alongside other Speed and/or Critical Rate Buffers. Having a Support Ally who specifically Buffs these stats for the whole Team would be even better.
