Masquerain (アメモース) is the 33rd Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is a Bug/Flying Type, and it is known as the Eyeball Pokémon.

Masquerain has the Intimidate Ability. Upon entering battle, this Ability reduces the Attack Stat of its opponent by one level; this effects both of its opponents in a Double Battle. This ability won't work if the opposing Pokémon has the Hyper Cutter, White Smoke, or Clear Body Abilities. A second Ability is available to Masquerain from the Dream World, the Unnerve Ability. This Ability prevents the opposing Pokémon from ever eating its held berry.

Surskit evolve into Masquerain starting at Level 22.

Masquerain is in the Egg Groups Water 1 and Bug, and its Egg takes approximately 3,840 Steps to hatch. It takes Masquerain One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Masquerain finds itself in the Never-Utilized and Rarely-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling. One unique niche that Masquerain has in these two Tiers is access to the combination of Quiver Dance and Baton Pass. While Quiver Dance sets up its Speed and both Special Statistics, it is able to pass those off to an Ally with Baton Pass. Additionally, it has access to Water-Type moves, including Scald and Hydro Pump.

However, Masquerain isn't very fast without boosts, and in addition to having a low Defense, its biggest bane is Stealth Rock, which removes half of its HP if it enters while this entry hazard is in play. Anything that can stop Masquerain from setting up by using Haze or Taunt will stop its attempts to set up.
