Liepard is a Dark Pokémon which evolves from Purrloin. It is vulnerable to Fighting, Bug and Fairy moves. Liepard's strongest moveset is Snarl & Payback and it has a Max CP of 1,846.
"Stealthily, it sneaks up on its target, striking from behind before its victim has a chance to react."
Snarl benefits from STAB and is generally recommended for its high energy gains, allowing Liepard to access its charge moves sooner. Charm can deal powerful Fairy-type coverage to unsuspecting opponents, but it lacks STAB and Liepard's charge moves are quite costly for its poor energy generation.
Dark Pulse provides largely unresisted STAB Dark-type coverage, and requires the least amount of energy among Liepard's charge moves. Payback costs more energy to use, making it less desireable. Play Rough is quite costly to use, but covers Liepard's weakness to Fighting-type Pokemon. Gunk Shot demands too much energy to use.
With a high ATK stat, poor bulk, and slow charge moves, Liepard's performance in Great League is unspectacular. While wins against Ghost and Psychic Pokemon are generally expected, not all seemingly favorable matchups end up positively, and other Dark Pokemon can fulfill Liepard's role more consistently.
Liepard's max CP doesn't reach the CP cap of Ultra League, making this cat a rather poor choice for Ultra League.
Cat naps are a lot more satisfying than losing to dragons and dinosaurs, right?
