Exploud is a Normal Pokémon. It is vulnerable to Fighting moves. Exploud's strongest moveset is Bite & Fire Blast and it has a Max CP of 2,347.
"Exploud triggers earthquakes with the tremors it creates by bellowing. If this Pokémon violently inhales from the ports on its body, it's a sign that it is preparing to let loose a huge bellow."
Exploud is a Normal-type Pokemon and lacks STAB on any of its movesets. Bite and Astonish are polar opposites of each other, but neither are ideal. The former offers high Dark-type damage output and consequently has the worst energy generation possible, while the latter sports poor Ghost-type damage with average energy generation.
The insane energy cost of Fire Blast results in only two charge move options: Crunch and Disarming Voice, both of which have identical stats. The former is a Dark-type move that synergizes with Exploud's fast moves to counter Ghost and Psychic Pokemon, while the latter is a Fairy-type move which can be useful to cover Exploud's weakness to Fighting-type opponents.
Exploud as a mono-Normal type Pokemon struggles significantly due to its very poor moveset. Slow energy generation and the lack of STAB on any of its movesets makes it very difficult to use, and to justify over numerous other Pokemon that are viable in this league. Due to its typing and moveset coverage, Exploud performs best as a hard counter to Ghost-type Pokemon, with certain victories over Psychic-types as well. However, this is its only niche, and it's probably better to pick other Pokemon until Exploud gets a moveset improvement.
Exploud would appreciate more stats for Ultra League, as a max CP of 2347 doesn't actually reach the CP cap for this league. Regardless, its significant problems with its moveset and subsequently its long list of losses against meta Pokemon should deter most, if not all, players from spending the large amount of resources needed to max Exploud.
Exploud is all bark and no bite. Ok, it technically can "Bite" but in this league it's more like a nibble.
