Pokémon in the Spotlight: Goomy!

    Gloomy is a pile of goo which looks like a slug. It is widely considered as the worst Dragon type Pokémon, which is one of the reasons I chose it! Goomy is a Dragon type.
    Goomy evolves into Sliggoo, which then evolves into Goodra.

         – Suggested Moveset

    • Dragon Pulse
    • Hidden Power (this would be Fighting type)
    • Rest
    • Sleep Talk
    An Eviolite would be a good choice for Goomy, as it a NFE (Not Fully Evolved) Pokémon. The Eviolite boosts Defense and Special Defense of the holder by 50%, but only if it is a NFE Pokémon.
    Dragon Pulse is Goomy’s major move, as it has 85 power, and can do good damage to other Dragon type Pokémon. Hidden Power is also another good choice, as it is Fighting type, which means that you can get good damage on Normal, Ice, Rock, Dark and Steel Pokémon. If you Goomy is low on HP, you can use Rest, which heals it, and also removes status problems. You can then use Sleep Talk to use a random move, which will make sure that Goomy is not helpless whilst asleep.

         – Type Defenses

    If Goomy has the Sap Sipper ability, then Grass will not be effective.
    Goomy is a great Pokémon if it has the right ability and moves. I would not recommend putting it in your competitive team, but it is a fun Pokémon to play with.
