Xatu is a Psychic & Flying Pokémon which evolves from Natu. It is vulnerable to Rock, Ghost, Electric, Ice and Dark moves. Xatu's strongest moveset is Air Slash & Future Sight and it has a Max CP of 2,188.
"Xatu stands rooted and still in one spot all day long. People believe that this Pokémon does so out of fear of the terrible things it has foreseen in the future."
Air Slash and Feint Attack feature identical stats, the former benefits from STAB while the latter provides coverage.
Aerial Ace benefits from STAB, and while not the most efficient charge move, is the most accessible. Ominous Wind can still be used for its coverage, despite being nerfed following the April 2020 rebalance. Futuresight deals the most damage with STAB, though 65 energy is a lot to ask for.
Xatu seen its use in the Silph Arena's Nightmare Cup in 2019, but its fragility and unimpressive moveset leaves a lot to ask for. Wins against most Grass Pokemon and certain Fighting-types are to be expected, but other Pokemon can fulfill this role better.
Xatu has a max CP of 2188, which is inadequate for anything outside of Great League.
Xatu has flown far from the coop of the Great League, best fly back!
