Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Hawlucha is in the Overused (OU) tier of competitive battling, where it stands out as a very capable and threatening set-up threat. Thanks to the emergence of terrain abilities from Tapu Koko, Tapu Bulu, and Tapu Lele, Hawlucha can utilize terrain seeds such as the Electric Seed, Grassy Seed, and Psychic Seed, which bolsters its Defense for the first two and Special Defense for the latter. More importantly, Hawlucha's Unburden ability kicks in once the Seed has been consumed, giving it a great Speed boost that allows for it to outspeed common Choice Scarf users, speedy threats like Mega Alakazam, and other sweepers like Mega Swampert under rain and Shift Gear Magearna. Hawlucha has a very good offensive typing as well, allowing for it to threaten out defensive Pokémon such as Ferrothorn, Mega Venusaur, and Tangrowth. Most notably, Hawlucha can take advantage of the presence of defensive Landorus-T variants, which cannot do much to Hawlucha. The most common Hawlucha set utilizes Swords Dance alongside two powerful STAB attacks in Acrobatics and High Jump Kick. It also uses Roost so that it can more easily take advantage of defensive Pokémon like Landorus-T and Celesteela, who cannot threaten it much once Hawlucha has obtained a Defense boost from Electric or Grassy Seed. While Hawlucha is a very good Pokémon in OU, its subpar Attack stat means that it cannot KO certain foes even after a Swords Dance boost, such as Mega Latios. It also has issues with more bulky defensive Pokémon that are not weak to its STABs, such as Toxapex, Mew, and Zapdos. Hawlucha is also not exactly very bulky, even after gaining a boost from a Seed, making it a bit prone to being taken out by powerful priority attacks such as Mega Pinsir's Quick Attack or Ash-Greninja's Water Shuriken.
