Hawlucha (ルチャブル) is the 89th Pokémon in the Kalos Coastal Pokédex. It is a Fighting/Flying-Type, and is known as the Wrestling Pokémon.

Hawlucha can use one of two Abilities: Limber, an Ability that gives it an immunity to Paralysis; or Unburden, which doubles its Speed once it consumes its Hold Item. Hawlucha's Hidden Ability is Mold Breaker, which allows its moves to work as they normally would regardless of the Abilities of the Targeted Pokémon.

Hawlucha doesn't evolve and doesn't have a pre-evolved form.

Hawlucha is in the Human-Like Egg Group. It takes Hawlucha One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.

Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Hawlucha is a part of the Borderline (BL) tier of competitive battling, meaning that it is banned from the Underused (UU) tier but not used enough to be a part of the Overused (OU) tier. In OU, Hawlucha can be a fearsome sweeper thanks to its high Speed that can be boosted even further with Unburden. This allows for Hawlucha to outspeed the entire metagame after losing or consuming its item. A great Fighting/Flying typing and Swords Dance to boost Hawlucha's relatively mediocre Attack stat can make Hawlucha an instant threat to the majority of the tier due to great neutral coverage and strong base attacks. Its most common set is a Substitute + Swords Dance set where it gets into range where it can consume its Sitrus Berry and wreak havoc with Acrobatics and High Jump Kick. Despite these positive traits, Hawlucha suffers from being relatively weak before boosting, which is problematic considering Hawlucha is frail and can find a hard time actually setting up a Swords Dance. Those flaws also force Hawlucha into a strict role of late-game cleaner after many of the opposing Pokémon have been weakened.
