Dunsparce is a Normal Pokémon. It is vulnerable to Fighting moves. Dunsparce's strongest moveset is Rollout Fast & Rock Slide and it has a Max CP of 1,689.
"Dunsparce has a drill for its tail. It uses this tail to burrow into the ground backward. This Pokémon is known to make its nest in complex shapes deep under the ground."
The addition of Rollout from the September 2022 update gives Dunsparce a useable Fast Move for PvP, with high energy gains and synergy with its Charge Moves. Bite focuses on Dark-type damage and lacks energy generation and synergy, while Astonish is just a bad move overall.
Rock Slide and Drill Run are very good Charge Moves that cost moderate amounts of energy and offers good damage. Combined, they provide perfect coverage, allowing Dunsparce to hit every Pokemon in the game for at least neutral damage. Dig is a terrible move.
In this league, Dunsparce sports good stats for bulk, while only worrying about one weakness due to its Normal typing. Rollout gives Dunspace the energy it needs to access its perfect coverage Charge Moves, though the lack of STAB results in less damage output than more dedicated roles. Strong neutral opponents like Azumarill, Skarmory, and Umbreon tend to have an advantage over Dunspace due to STAB. Overall Dunspace isn't the most impressive Pokemon in the meta, but at least now it can have a niche in specific formats or as a generalist in the open format.
Capping out at 1689 CP, Dunsparce can’t really compete in Ultra League.
Dunsparce fails to be able to beat any relevant Pokémon in Master League. Please don’t use it here.
