Natu, The Little Bird Pokémon. It's wings are not fully grown so it has to hop around. It is always staring at something. It forages for food on the ground but sometimes hops onto branches to peck at shoots. It likes to eat new sprouts on trees. It is unable to fly. If your eyes meet with Natu's, it will stare back intently towards you. But if you move slightly, it'll hop to safety. It's jumping is highly developed.

Strategy Using Natu

This moveset was suggested by The_Ownage, this was originally his Xatu moveset, but it should work on Natu, though it won't be as useful.
Anyways, as a Psychic/flying type, Natu still has its normal flying weaknesses such as Electric and rock. Natu has poor defenses and probably won't last more than one turn if an attack hits.
But if you can predict your opponent's moves, maybe they will try to prepare a special sweeper/physical sweeper by using moves like calm mind/Bulk up until they are strong enough to do damage to all of your team members. But with Haze, this prevents this as it cancels out all stat increases/decreases.
Toxic to provide some annoyance to your opponent's pokemon and Wish also restores half of Natu's Max HP too. Psychic is there because it needs an attacking move otherwise, you will be at a disadvantage.
Confuse ray could go in there somewhere, probably over wish or Haze and would give you more time within battle. I can't see why anyone would put this pokemon on a serious team but on a fun team I'm sure it would be fine.
Overall, Natu is an alright pokemon, with weak defenses and won't take a hit, but it does have moves that can provide some annoyance before being knocked out.
