Intro Trivia Edit

The updated trivia and/or battle strategy can be found here.
  • Whimsicott represents April in the Pokémon Zodiac, which can be found on TV in Unova.
    • People born in this month are supposed to be optimistic, and enthusiastic, similar to Aries.
  • Similar to Aries, it is modeled after a Ram, mixed with a Cottonbloom.
    • Because of this, Whimsicott has the ability to float on the wind.
  • It is based off of the "Vegetable Lamb of Tartary", a lamb that grows from the ground and grazes, creating cotton.

Battle Strategy Edit


Prankster Support Edit

  • Item: Leftovers
  • Ability: Prankster
  • Nature: Bold (+Defense, -Attack) or Impish (+Defense, -Sp. Attack)
  • EVs: HP and Defense
  • Moves:
    • Substitute
    • Encore
    • Stun Spore
    • Leech Seed
  • Whimsicott is technically an RU Pokémon, but is good enough to be viable in higher tiers.
  • Whimsicott should be given plenty of support moves to take advantage of Prankster.
  • Use Encore to trap an opponent into a support move like Weather or Entry Hazards.
  • Once trapped, use a Substitute, and then Paralyze, and Leech Seed your opponent.
  • This will allow you to regenerate HP for future Substitutes, and potentially leave the opponent unable to move, which helps greatly with preserving the Substitute.

Counter-Strategy Edit

  • Taunt can completely shut down Whimsicott due to it's lack of offensive moves.
  • Grass-types are immune to Whimsicott's Leech Seed and Stun Spore.
  • Bug and Ice-type moves can hit Whimsicott for big damage.
