Dubwool is a Normal Pokémon which evolves from Wooloo. It is vulnerable to Fighting moves. Dubwool's strongest moveset is Tackle & Wild Charge and it has a Max CP of 2,191.
"Weave a carpet from its springy wool, and you end up with something closer to a trampoline. You'll start to bounce the moment you set foot on it."
Double Kick enables Dubwool to compete in the meta thanks to its valuable energy generation and useful typing coverage. Tackle and Take Down benefit from STAB but can't be Super Effective against anything.
Body Slam can be spammed frequently and deal solid neutral damage with STAB. Wild Charge is a very threatening move, especially against common Water Pokemon, and gives Dubwool a lot of shield pressure. Payback is undesirable due to its high energy cost, but its Dark-type coverage is useful in specific formats.
The addition of Double Kick following the Sept 2022 update to Go Battle League is what enables Duwbool to see play in PvP. Access to frequently Body Slams and the threat of Wild Charge gives Dubwool some nice tools to pressure its opponents. Most notably Duwool competes closely with Vigoroth, but loses to its counterpart as Vigoroth has more damage with Counter. By comparison, Dubwool sports slightly more bulk and faster energy generation, with a different coverage option than Vigoroth's Bulldoze.
With Candy XL Dubwool can just about reach the CP cap of Ultra League, giving it some merit here. Payback is more favorable in UL due to the presence of Giratina, though Dubwool will faint before it can land 2 Paybacks on Giratina in an even fight. Against the rest of the meta, Dubwool mostly struggles with opponents who have access to its only weakness: Fighting-type, which there are a surprisingly large number of.
This goat ain't gonna be the GOAT unless it can get some more stats.
