Important Matchups Edit

Moves Edit

The lowest-leveled wild Croagunk will start with Poison Sting, Taunt, Pursuit, and Faint Attack. Poison Sting is pitiful as STAB, but you'll have to make the best of it. Taunt may not be that beneficial as most of the NPC Trainers won't rely on status moves, even if annoying. Faint Attack is better than Pursuit due to how little the NPC relies on switching, also it never misses. Revenge at Level 22 works if you know Croagunk is going to be attacked, and can survive it. It is generally a better choice than Rock Smash. Swagger at Level 24 is a rather high-risk move, but can be used to annoy those who don't primarily rely on physical attacks. Level 29 brings Mud Bomb, a move that is generally not worth it in the long run. Good to deal with Fire and Electric-types in the meantime. Sucker Punch at Level 31 can be used over Faint Attack if the player has good predicting skills, and can get the first hit on pesky Psychic-types. Nasty Plot at Level 36 turns it into a Special Attack sweeper, but remember that the Croagunk line is awfully frail. Hopefully a Toxicroak now, the next move is Poison Jab at Level 41. This will be the best physical Poison STAB that the line gets, so keep it. Special variants can enjoy Sludge Bomb at Level 49. Level 54 brings Flatter which is a variant of Swagger that instead raises Special Attack, a slightly safer option if the player plays their cards right.

On the TM side of things, Toxicroak is rather versatile. Focus Punch really only works if the player is lucky with Swagger/Flatter or has Subsitute up, it is still a risky option regardless. Toxic gives Toxicroak more utility. Dry Skin variants will love Rain Dance up, but that may be best left to another teammate. Earthquake takes care of annoying Fire and Electric-type Pokemon, although Dig is another suitable option. Shadow Ball is perfect for Special variants, hitting Psychic-types hard. Brick Break helps patch the line's lack of good Fighting STAB, it is the strongest physical Fighting STAB sans Focus Punch that it gets. Rock Tomb swats away Flying-types, and helps Toxicroak gain more advantage in speed. Torment shuts down opposing Pokemon from using the same move twice, which can help Toxicroak with strong moves only if it can live the first hit. Focus Blast is Toxicroak's strongest special Fighting STAB, but is generally inaccurate. Payback is a Dark-type Revenge, but generally useless without the STAB. Stone Edge and Rock Slide hit harder than Rock Tomb, the latter is slightly more accurate too. Swords Dance helps Toxicroak boost its physical attack similar to Nasty Plot. X-Scissor does hit Psychic-types, but it doesn't have much coverage like the Dark-type moves do. Substitute should only be used to make Focus Punch work. Rock Smash may be Toxicroak's best STAB for a while, and that's sad.

Regarding Move Tutors, Toxicroak notably has access to Thunder Punch and Ice Punch. Ice Punch is generally more useful, it hits Ground and Flying-types as well as Dragon-types. Vacuum Wave is a STAB priority move, allowing Toxicroak to hit first and off its decent Special Attack stat.

Recommended moveset:

  • Physical Sweeper: Poison Jab, Brick Break, Sucker Punch/Ice Punch/Swords Dance/Rock Slide/Earthquake.
  • Special Sweeper: Sludge Bomb, Vacuum Wave, Shadow Ball, Nasty Plot.
  • Mixed Attacker: Poison Jab, Vacuum Wave, any Special or Physical attacks fill the last two spots.
