Grimmsnarl uses [Light Screen] and [Reflect] to put up both walls and increases its Defense. On top of that, Prankster helps with [Taunt] to get the first attack, and it is a great Support Pokemon.

You can use Taunt to cancel out your opponent's Moves. It is really useful against Pokemon that uses Spore to put you to sleep, and continuously Dragon Dance.

Not Recommended for Dark Type Raids


You want to use the Ability Prankster, to get the first move, but it will be canceled out against Dark type Pokemon. You will not have a problem with like Reflect, but Taunt will be canceled out so it is not recommended to be used in Dark type Raids.

    You will not be able to find a Wild Grimmsnarl. So you need to go to Tagtree Thicket to find a Morgrem or Impidimp and evolve into a Grimmsnarl.

    If You Want To Save Money, You Would Want To Capture By Reroll

    Once you have a Grimmsnarl set up, you would want to use items to increase its Effort Values. With each item, you will need to use money, so if you want to save a little bit of money, you would want to do some reroll for [Nature], [IV], [Ability] to make it easier.

    You can change the Nature to Careful using the corresponding Mint for it. If you do not have one, get it from the Chansey Supply Shop in Mesagoza or other areas for $ 20,000. If the original Nature is Careful, there is no need to use Mints.

  7. Increase Effort Value

    Grimmsnarl is great for Support, so instead of using it for Fire Power, you want to use it for Defense. If you want to strengthen your Physical Defense, you will not have a problem having 252 for DEF.

    If You Have Money To Spare, Buy Items and Strengthen Quickly

    Health Feather iconHealth Feather ×2
    ATKMuscle Feather IconMuscle Feather ×6
    SP. DEFZinc IconZinc ×25
    Clever Feather IconClever Feather ×2

    If you have money to spare, you can buy a lot of items to increase your EV in a very fast speed. But each one does cost $ 10000 and for each stats you need 26, and so in total you would need about 50 ($ 500000).

    If You Want To Save Money, Battle Wild Pokemon

    By capturing or defeating Wild Pokemon, you can earn 1 to 3 Effort Value for each of them. If you give a Pokemon a Power Item, you can increase the amount of Effort Value it gets by 8. Power Items costs only $ 10,000, so they are recommended for those who want to save money.
