Furret, The Long Body Pokémon. There is no telling where its tail begins. Despite its short legs, it is quick at hunting Rattata. It makes a nest to suit its long and skinny body. The nest is impossible for other pokémon to enter. The deeper the nests go, the more maze-like they become. When under attack, it can slickly squirm through narrow spaces and get away. In spite of its short limbs, it is very nimble and fleet.

Strategy Using Furret

This pokemon wasn't given the best stats in game. At least this pokemon has been given a decent movepool and is good as a choice bander (it makes up for the relatively poor attack stat at least).
Prediction is key with focus punch, and this is quite possibly one of its strongest attacks along with the max happiness STABbed return. If you know your opponents team and fighting strategy well, you should be able to guess when he/she will make a switch or have a pokemon use a non-offensive move, then focus punch will be invaluable.
When you need to strike first, quick attack will become very useful, especially against subflailers and Endure/Reversal pokemon. One of the bad things about Furret is its lack of defense, and will most likely pose little threat if the advice in the counter is used.
If your opponent happens to send out a ghost pokemon, Return, Focus punch and quick attack become useless, so Shadow ball becomes useful (or you could just switch).

Strategy Against Furret

Furret is one of the poor Pokémon that Nintendo didn't bless with good stats. It has above average speed, but not to the degree that it'll outrun many Pokémon, and above average HP, which is usually lost due to its weak defences. The most effective Furret tends to be the 'Choice Furret' (Furret@Choice Band), which can make its attack somewhat effective. It also has access to Quick Attack, which can cause some heavy damage on Pokémon faster than Furret (of which many tend to have weak defence).
- The best way to get around Furret is prediction. If you can predict which of its four moves it'll use and switch to a resistant Pokémon, you can force a switch which will give you a free turn to use a Stat boosting technique or Substitute (or even an offensive move if you can predict which Pokémon will be sent out).
- You could also use Mach Punch/Quick Attack/Extreme Speed with a Pokémon who carries a powerful attack stat (preferably @Choice Band). Hopefully, it'll hit first and with a little bit of luck, it'll knock out Furret with one hit.
- Alternatively, you could try to endure the hits and Counter them, however the Pokémon you use to Counter will need a good defensive stat since it'll have to survive hits from moves coming off of an attack stat of approximately 220 - 414.
