Bibarel is a Normal & Water Pokémon which evolves from Bidoof. It is vulnerable to Fighting, Grass and Electric moves. Bibarel's strongest moveset is Water Gun & Hyper Beam and it has a Max CP of 1,823.
"It makes its nest by damming streams with bark and mud. It is known as an industrious worker."
Water Gun (3 EPT/3 DPT) provides solid damage and energy gain. Take Down is one of the worst fast moves in the game.
Surf (65 power/40 energy) and Hyper Fang (80 power/50 energy) provide great neutral coverage and good shield pressure. Hyper Beam is way too expensive to be useful.
Look. Bibarel’s not great. A poor matchup against a number of the top Great League threats does it no favors, and it’s not really that bulky. Being able to beat Bastiodon, Sableye, Alolan Marowak, and Steelix absolutely gives it a niche, but there are probably better options (cough Lanturn cough) that can do most, if not all of that. That being said beating up someone with a Bibarel feels pretty good.
Maxing out at 2061 CP, Bibarel can’t match up with the 2500-ish monsters in Ultra League.
This is the big leagues, baby. Bibarel just doesn’t cut it.
