    Floette

    (Keep in mind this Pokemon has not been released yet. Not all details about it are known, however there are enough details known about its stats, movepool and other things to make a successful early analysis.)



    Typing:
    Fairy (Weak to Poison and Steel types) (Resistant to Fighting, Bug and Dark types) (Immune to Dragon types)

    Abilities:
    Flower Veil
    Symbiosis (Hidden Ability)

    Stats:
    HP: 74
    Attack: 65
    Defense: 67
    Special Attack: 125
    Special Defense: 128
    Speed: 92

    BST (Base Stat Total): 551

    Notable Moves:

    Offensive:
    Dazzling Gleam
    Energy Ball
    Grass Knot
    Hidden Power
    Magical Leaf
    Moonblast
    Light of Ruin
    Petal Dance
    Psychic

    Calm Mind
    Protect
    Rain Dance
    Rest
    Substitute
    Sunny Day
    Toxic
    Wish

    Description:

    Eternal Flower Floette was certainly a surprise. It doesn't evolve into Florges and it has its own unique stats and a signature move "Light of Ruin" which is incredibly powerful. It's got an interesting speed tier of 92, shared with Mega Garchomp, Leavanny and Krookodile. Along with this, Fairy type STAB has useful offensive coverage and it has a perfectly adequate movepool. It also has fantastic Special stats, with a Special Attack and Special Defense of 125 and 128 respectively. So it'll hit hard and take Special hits well. Its base 74 HP also contributes to this. Unfortunately it has its downfalls, its normal Attack and Defense are decidedly useless, and while its movepool allows it to do what it needs to do, it's very predictable and can only fill a few niche roles properly.

    Set #1: Choice Specs

    Floette @ Choice Specs
    Ability: Flower Veil
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
    Modest Nature
    - Light of Ruin
    - Energy Ball
    - Psychic / Wish / Aromatherapy
    - Hidden Power (Fire / Ice / Electric / Fighting) / Wish / Aromatherapy

    Set Description:

    The main point of this set is to massacre anything with Specs STAB Light of Ruin. The other moves are mostly there just for coverage and really won't do you much good. Energy Ball will maim things like Quagsire and Swampert for more than Light of Ruin, Psychic is just there for when Light of Ruin's PP runs out. The various HP's are for specific coverage, although you might just be better off packing Wish or Aromatherapy in either of those slots.

    Set #2: Choice Scarf

    Floette @ Choice Scarf
    Ability: Flower Veil
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
    Timid Nature
    - Light of Ruin
    - Energy Ball
    - Psychic / Wish / Aromatherapy
    - Hidden Power (Fire / Ice / Electric / Fighting) / Wish / Aromatherapy

    Set Description:

    Literally the same concept as the specs set but with a Choice Scarf. Just nuke and run, simple as that.

    Set #3: Calm Mind

    Floette @ Leftovers
    Ability: Flower Veil
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpA
    Bold Nature
    - Calm Mind
    - Light of Ruin
    - Energy Ball / Wish / Aromatherapy / Rest
    - Wish / Aromatherapy / Rest

    Set Description:

    Boost and fire off Light of Ruin once you're boosted. Floette has a satisfactory HP stat, so with a Bold nature, it will be slightly bulky. Especially thanks to its natural Special bulk as well.

    Other Options:

    Almost nothing except for a potential dedicated Cleric set. Floette simply does not have the movepool for anything else.
