Absol (アブソル) is the 152nd Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is a Dark Type, and it is known as the Disaster Pokémon.

Absol can have one of two Abilities: Pressure, which lowers the opposing Pokémon's PP by 2 each time an opposing Pokémon uses a move; or Super Luck, which increases the Critical Hit Ration of moves and allows simultaneous use of the item Dire Hit and the move Focus Energy. Absol from the Dream World have access to a third Ability, the Justified Ability. This Ability increases its Attack by one stage each time it gets hit by a Dark Type attack.

Absol does not evolve prior to Generation VI; in this Generation it can evolve into Mega Absol by using a Mega Stone.

Absol is in the Field Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 6,400 Steps to hatch. It takes 1,059,860 Experience for Absol to reach Level 100.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Absol finds itself in the Rarely-Utilized Tier of Competitive Battling, but don't be fooled as it has a very high Attack Statistic that can spell disaster for an unprepared opposition. Sucker Punch gives it priority, causing significant damage to Pokémon that are using a Physical or Special Attack on that turn.

Despite Absol's high Attack, it has considerably low defenses and can be beaten by out-predicting when Absol is going to use Sucker Punch and turn that to their advantage, preying on its low Defenses.
