"It uses its tails for everything. If it wraps both of its tails around you and gives you a squeeze, that's proof it really likes you."

PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Scratch + Aerial Ace and Low Sweep

This one's pretty much a case of process of elimination. Astonish is terrible, and it's unreasonable to expect to reach Hyper Beam with Scratch's low energy generation. As such, this is what's left. Sadly, though, it's really not much. Scratch, Aerial Ace, and Low Sweep are all also terrible moves, so...take from that what you will.

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 0 / 5

Ambipom's got mediocre stats, and terrible moves. There's no good reason to run it.

Ultra League: 0 / 5

Ambipom's Normal typing doesn't even do it any favors in Ultra League, since it doesn't have any effective way to swing back at Giratina. Again: write this one off.

Master League: 0 / 5

Not only does Ambipom still just suck intrinsically, it's now also completely outclassed in terms of max CP! Don't do this to yourself.
