Swoobat is a Psychic & Flying Pokémon which evolves from Woobat. It is vulnerable to Rock, Ghost, Electric, Ice and Dark moves. Swoobat's strongest moveset is Confusion & Psychic and it has a Max CP of 1,716.

Confusion (3 EPT/4 DPT) is a great move in general, and Swoobat's Fast Move of choice. It deals solid damage while charging energy at a good rate.
Psychic (90 Power/55 Energy) is a decently powerful primary STAB attack, while Aerial Ace (55 Power/45 Energy) is a weak attack that is at least a bit cheaper. Because of Swoobat's moderate energy gains, Psychic Fangs is generally recommended due to its low energy cost and guaranteed debuff utility, ramping up damage from Confusion.
The addition of Psychic Fangs following the Sept 2022 update gives Swoobat more consistency thanks to its low energy cost, and allows Swoobat to ramp up damage as more Psychic Fang debuffs stack up. This strategy only works when the opponent is switch-locked, and Swoobat can attempt to force the opponent to give up switch advantage otherwise. Unfortunately Swoobat still has no answer to common Steel and Dark Pokemon, which is a major setback.
Swoobat doesn't even come close to the CP cap of Ultra League.
