Shell Smash For A Power-Buff

Shell Smash maximizes Crustle's attack and movement speed, making it a real force in the battlefield when activated. This move is particularly great for when you're in enemy territory - you can counter your lowered speed with this move and immediately be able to move like normal, while also dealing more powerful attacks.

Pin Foes With X-Scissor

X-Scissor has you dash forward and deal damage multiple times - making it quite the powerhouse move when used correctly. It also stuns the enemy Pokemon if it hits any object after being shoved after this move. Do note that you'll have to time this move well as it isn't always a sure hit.

Rock Tomb To Keep Enemies Away

Rock Tomb is one of Crustle's main moves and mastering it is vital to your success with it. With this build, Rock Tomb is especially useful in keeping enemies away - whether it's from the goal or Pokemon you want to protect, or from yourself! This move paired with the speed boost from the Float Stone will give you ample opportunities to run away from a perilous battle.

X-Scissor For Max Damage

X-Scissor has good burst damage and can cause wide crowd control. Make sure to time this move well as it can leave Crustle exposed if not timed correctly. This build gives Crustle more bite on the offensive end, so this move is particularly useful for taking on wild boss Pokemon such as Rotom, Zapdos, and Drednaw. It's also great at pushing enemies away from whatever you're protecting.

Rock Tomb To Cut Off Enemy Retreat

This build ensures that Crustle is rock-solid and tanky enough to sustain damage, so maximize Rock Tomb to keep your enemies close and cut off their attempts to retreat. This is particularly useful when you're with an Attacker as you can work as a team to corner the enemy into a tight space - leaving them unable to run away from your assaults.

Stealth Rock For Area Damage

Stealth Rock doesn't have the overall damage potential of X-Scissor, but it's particularly useful whenever you're splitting enemy formations and want to inflilct damage to all enemies in the vicinity. It's a great move to utilize in large battles, or when you want to inflict damage even as you hide behind the Rock Tomb.

How To Play Crustle - Strategy & Walkthrough

Which Lane To Go - Top Or Bottom

Top Or Bottom

Crustle's lane is either top or bottom, depending on the Pokemon on your team. Top is the recommended lane but Crustle may need to go for the bottom lane if the team roster demands it. Coordinate with your lane buddy in either case.

Which Lanes to Play - Top, Mid, Bottom Lane Roles Guide

Dwebble (Lv 1~) Strategy

Take Rock Slide first for extra damage. Clear Wild Pokemon near your lane. As you're still relatively vulnerable, avoid combat with the other team. Stay around your goal, farm exp, and use the Yellow Berry (Sitrus) if you get hurt.

Return To Base If HP Is Too Low

Crustle has a large HP pool that it relies on heavily to stay effective in the field. Its large HP pool also means that its hard to rely on natural healing to fully recover before the next battle. Don't hesitate to return to base to fill up your HP when it drops too low.

Crustle (Lv 4~) Strategy

Take A More Active Role In Fights

At this stage, you can start to be a bit more aggressive and join fights. Your high defense stats make you difficult to KO - so being in the battlefield can definitely add pressure to the opposing team. Depending on which move you choose for this stage, you can take on a more aggressive role and deal damage, or do crowd control and hinder the actions of your opponents.

Adapt Your Build To The Situation At Hand

When you get to Lv 4 you'll get a choice between Rock Tomb & Shell Smash. Choose Rock Tomb if you have a good aim and want to focus on crowd control needed for your role. Note that you'll need to familiarize yourself with the placement & timing of Rock Tomb to make it truly shine in battle. Choose Shell Smash if you want to take a more offensive role as this buffs your attack in exchange for a percentage of your defense.

Crustle (Lv 6~) Strategy

Crustle Strategy

Once you hit Lv 6, do make it a point to check the minimap to help lanes that are doing poorly, and find opportunities to take out Drednaw or Rotom. The 2 teams will start clashing more often, so keep your HP high in preparation for skirmishes.

Best To Work With Teammates

At this stage Crustle's damage will be insufficient to take down Pokemon alone without Shell Smash, while enemy Pokemon damage will rise substantially. Regardless of which move you chose previously, it's always a good idea to work with your teammates in battle.

Choose Your Second Move Based On Situation

Choose Your Second Move Based On Situation

Your Lv 6 move will depend a lot on your situation: Ideally, X-Scissor will give the most damage and crowd control but requires skill to use effectively. Also, the move's dash component could be fatal as Crustle lacks moves that can let it jump out of a nasty situation. If you have trouble using this move or if there are uninterruptable enemies like Machamp, choose Stealth Rock instead.

Crustle (Lv 9~) Strategy

Shell Smash + X-Scissor Build

Recommended Combos
Shell SmashX-Scissor

Always start your assault with Shell Smash to prime your attacks for max damage and to up your movement speed to chase after enemies that are attempting to run away. Then, follow up with X-Scissor to deal several powerful hits. Quickly deal successive normal attacks to seal the deal and KO your opponent.

Rock Tomb + X-Scissor Build

Recommended Combos
Rock TombX-Scissor

This combo is particularly useful for maximizing the stun effect of X-Scissor and for singling out a particular enemy. Begin with Rock Tomb to create a barricade between you and your opponent. Then, follow up with X-Scissor to run them into the wall to damage and stun them. Quickly dish out several Normal Attacks to inflict maximum damage before the wall dissipates.

This combo works great when working with teammates to corner enemies into getting KO-ed. Begin with Rock Tomb to prevent the enemy from escaping and to keep them in a particular area. Then, quickly follow up with Stealth Rock to inflict increasing damage toward the area where you've cornered them.

Crustle Other Tips & Guides

Press R Again To Remove Wall

When you realize that you might have placed the Rock Tomb wall in an undesired position, immediately press R again to have the wall dissolve away. This can prevent trapping your own team in an unfavorable position!
