Gumshoos is a Normal Pokémon which evolves from Yungoos. It is vulnerable to Fighting moves. Gumshoos's strongest moveset is Bite & Hyper Fang and it has a Max CP of 2,185.
"Patient by nature, this Pokémon loses control of itself and pounces when it spots its favorite meal—Rattata!"
Bite is the only reasonable Fast Move, giving Gumshoos a niche vs Ghost Pokemon.
Crunch costs the least amount of energy, which is important given the lack of fast energy generation, and helps Gumshoos wall Ghost-types even more. Hyper Fang costs slightly more energy and benefits from STAB, making it decent for neutral opponents, but can't be Super Effective against anything. Rock Tomb's coverage can be valuable, but its energy cost is very difficult to ask for.
Gumshoos has only one niche, and that's to hard counter Ghost-types with its typing and moveset. Aside from that, the lack of bulk and shield pressure is a painful detriment to Gumshoos.
With a max CP of 2470 at level 50, Gumshoos is a very expensive option for Ultra League. Its lackluster performance discourages any thought of investing resources into it.
Let me know when you decide to use Gumshoos in Master League. So I, uh, you know....
can queue up at the same time as you. Yeah.
