Falinks is a Fighting Pokémon. It is vulnerable to Flying, Psychic and Fairy moves. Falinks's strongest moveset is Counter & Superpower and it has a Max CP of 2,357.
"Five of them are troopers, and one is the brass. The brass's orders are absolute."
A moveset born by exclusion. Rock Smash and Brick Break are horrible, and this is what we're left with. Counter is really good, though, so that's nice.
Falinks is...fine. Megahorn's high cost has some anti-synergy with Superpower, which really benefits from a bait move. Megahorn can be useful to hit Grass- and Psychic-types which are pretty prevalent in the format. That said, Falinks is just outclassed by all the other Counter users in the format, and that hurts its viability a lot.
Falinks has the same issues in Ultra League that it does in Great League, and then a few more. A total inability to hit Ghost-types causes it some serious issues in a format dominated by Giratina.
Falinks's max CP is far too low to let it compete in Master League.
