Furfrou (Natural) is a Normal Pokémon. It is vulnerable to Fighting moves. Furfrou's strongest moveset is Sucker Punch & Grass Knot and it has a Max CP of 2,111.
"Trimming its fluffy fur not only makes it more elegant but also increases the swiftness of its movements."
Sucker Punch is recommended as the most balanced of Furfrou's Fast Moves, sporting slightly above average energy generation. Bite gives up energy generation to favor high damage output, which can make Furfrou a more polarizing counter against Ghost Pokemon. Take Down is a very poor move, and STAB isn't enough to change that.
Surf is a well-rounded move that doesn't cost a lot of energy, and provides decent Water-type damage. Dark Pulse synergizes with Furfrou's Fast Moves if more consistency is needed against Ghost and Psychic Pokemon. Grass Knot can be chosen for useful Grass-type coverage against popular Water Pokemon.
Furfrou's moveset offers unusual coverage options for a Normal-type, lacking STAB on all of its recommended moves and rendering it very vulnerable against its only weakness to Fighting-type Pokemon. Furfrou sports average bulk, and generally fits the role of an anti-Ghost with some play against common Water-types thanks to Grass Knot. However consistency is Furfrou's main drawback, with the lack of STAB on all its moves and unimpressive stats from Sucker Punch holding it back. Overall Furfrou falls below meta Dark-types in their role, with no resistance against Psychic Pokemon while also losing to Dark-types due to the lack of coverage and resisted Sucker Punch damage.
Furfrou somewhat lacks stats for Ultra League, reaching 2415 CP at level 50 with a Best Buddy effect, making this Pokemon quite expensive to use. Its performance, or rather lack thereof, doesn't justify its high resource cost.
Furfrou! Come here! Sit! .....on the bench.....
