Dodrio Strategy Guide

Dodrio Strengths & Weaknesses

Strengths
Dodrio can attack quickly to steal last hits from objectives in team fights, thanks to its incredible speed and low cooldowns.
Dodrio can score thrice the amount of points making it able to destroy the enemy goal zone much quicker.
Can deal damage while dashing in with its Triple Trample.
Weaknesses
Dodrio needs to prioritize leveling up to reach its power spike. It also has pretty low endurance and can be burst down in team fights as it can't tank multiple hits.
Dodrio requires proper positioning and timing on its skills. You need to predict the enemy's movement to be able to use Dodrio's skills at the right time and place.
Dodrio doesn't do well in close-range fights as it can take in too much damage due to its low endurance. You need to constantly watch the map to avoid getting ganked.

Recommended Lanes

The number of ★ shows the level on a particular route area.

LaneRoute Details
TopTop Recommendation level: ★★・
Dodrio has a high last-hit performance in the early stages and evolves quickly. It is possible to play an active role even if you go to the top lane.
MiddleMiddleRecommendation level: ★★・
It's the easiest lane to level up since you can freely farm Exp as team clashes don't occur here during the early and mid stages. Dodrio can take advantage of its high mobility and surprise attacks. However, since Dodrio can also play an active role in the top and bottom, its best to give it to an ally that needs to prioritize their leveling.
BottomBottomRecommendation level: ★★★
The battle on the bottom lane is less intense than on the top lane. Going down the bottom lane is the best option since it allows you to steadily increase your level especially when equipped with Attack Weight.

Early Game (Lvl 1~) Strategy

Move As Much As Possible

▲ Dodrio's dash gauge

Dodrio's dash gauge fills up as it moves and when it's full, its movement speed increases as well. When you stop moving, the dash gauge drops, so keep moving as much as possible.

Prioritizing Jungle Clear

One full clear of the middle lane (jungle) will let you hit level 5. This is crucial, as it will give you access to another offensive move. It's not recommended to attempt ganking other lanes until you're at least 5!

Aggresively Score Goals And Invade Opposing Mid Lane

Dodrio's high mobility makes it challenging for opponents to catch up to it. Use it it to steal Exp from defeating spawns in your enemy's side in the middle lane and aim to score the accumulated points to destroy the opposing team's goal zones.

Do Not Over Extend On Fighting

Although Dodrio specializes in melee fights its endurance is quite poor, thus it cannot stay in close proximity to fight for long. Use its fast movement speed to flee from disadvantageous situations.

Mid Game (Lvl 5~) Strategy

Use Dashes As An Escape Tool

Dash abilities can be used not only to jump at enemies but to run away from them. Depending on your settings, your cursor will likely hover over an enemy first, so you'll have to manually adjust it in the other direction.

Gank At Lvl 5

Once you've got your Bouffalant Buff and are level 5, head over to an available lane and attempt a gank. Don't overextend or fight on top of the enemy's goals unless you're sure you can get a kill!

Beware Of Multiple Situations

Dodrio can excel at 1v1 battles but may struggle when stunned and attacked by multiple sources. Make sure not to force Dodrio to fight alone if you are at a disadvantage, it's a good idea to keep applying pressure from a distance.

Boosted Attacks Reduces Cooldowns

A way to reduce the cooldown of Dorio's moves is to trigger its Sprint Gauge when it's full then use it to charge towards an opponent. Keep in mind that you need to make sure to hit them to be able to keep Dodrio's momentum when doing combos.

Last Scored Points Only Triggers Held Item Effects

Score Related Held Items
Attack WeightAeos Cookie

Since Dodrio has a different scoring method than its peers where instead of shooting points only once, it separates it into three. The final points dunked triggers the effects of Held Items that are correlated with scoring, so keep that in mind when you plan on stacking on bonus effects.

All Held Items List

Drill Peck + Agility Build

This Dodrio's build focuses on increasing movement speed to charge the Sprint Gauge and maximize the damage potential of Drill Peck. Agility enables Dodrio unstoppable by negating hindrances and provides increased movement speed that enables it to charge its Sprint Gauge faster. Once the gauge is full, Dodrio can dash forward while attacking with its sharp beaks multiple times, dealing damage to opposing Pokemon it hits and shoving them in the process.

Drill Peck + Jump Kick Build

This Dodrio move set is great for bursting down one target at a time by isolating them with Drill Peck then using Jump Kick to further deal damage and decrease their movement speed. Once Drill Peck is upgraded, Dodrio can also recover some HP each time it hits its target increasing its survivability especially during crucial team clashes in the late game.

Late Game (Lvl 9~) Strategy

Unite Move Triple Trample

You can use Triple Trample to charge forward and shove an enemy while also inflicting them with damage. Once activated, Dodrio's movement speed and attack increase as well for a short time, making it easier to eliminate fleeing targets. On top of that, Dodrio gains a shield to protect it from taking damage for a short time.

Take Out Squishies Near Zapdos

In the late game, you'll almost always have a confrontation with the enemy team at Zapdos. It can be tempting to fight Zapdos head-on, but this is best left to your bulkier All-Rounder and Defender teammates. Instead, hang around the edges and wait for enemy squishies to approach. Then, use your high mobility to jump in and eliminate them.

When its sprint gauge is full, the Pokemon starts running with increased movement speed. If the Pokemon's movement speed decreases below a set speed, the sprint gauge will rapidly deplete. When Doduo scores a goal, it evenly divides its collected Aeos energy into two portions and deposits them into the goal one at a time.
