Even with all of these seemingly deal breaking flaws and setbacks, Absol can still hold its own in battle with the proper preparation. A Choice Scarf is a good way to mitigate Absol's low speed and help it get the jump on lots of Pokémon and tear through weakened teams thanks to its great 130 Attack stat. Not only that, but Absol also has a great supporting movepool that can help cripple opposing walls and stallers with ease. Not to mention the Mega Evolution that Absol got in Pokémon X and Y that only improved this Pokémon in every way. Absol has a lot of options, and it's not always easy to make them work, but it's always worth it.
Yay! You're now following absol in your .
If these stats look familiar that's because they are. Mega Absol is essentially an optimized version of its non-mega counterpart, with one added bonus: Magic Bounce. Magic Bounce gives Absol unrivaled utility as a stallbreaker or early game disruptor if your team fears entry hazards. As an offensively based Pokemon Absol can make great use of this ability and essentially gain a free switch-in with proper prediction, which let's it make full use of its fantastic movepool. Speaking of which, Mega Absol gains a sizeable boost to its Special Attack, making it an effective mixed sweeper, and with access to moves like Flamethrower, Thunderbolt and Ice Beam, the possibilities are endless.
Absol is a type Pokémon introduced in . It is known as the .
Absol has a Mega Evolution, available from X & Y onwards.
Gyarados is a consistent Pokemon for the most part, but it has fallen from its once dominant status in competitive play. Gyarados is by no means a bad Pokemon, but in this competitive environment it needs more support than it previously did. Gyarados' Intimidate is a great asset to Absol as it makes it easier to deal with physical attackers and further cripple them with Will-o-Wisp. Absol makes Gyarados' job of setting up with Dragon Dance that much easier, and it's resistance to Fighting and Water type attacks helps Absol get out of sticky situations much more easily. Overall Gyarados and Absol have great synergy and compliment each other well on the battlefield, but both are Pokemon that must be played with carefully.
