Strategy Using Dunsparce

This moveset was suggested by The_Ownage, and relies on Dunsparce's ability, serene grace. Serene grace doubles the chances of the extra effects to happen.
Headbutt is an obvious choice, with Serene grace, its chances of flinching doubles to 60%, and also gains STAB strength too. Glare will help with attacking first, since if you paralyse your opponent, you should have a greater chance of attack first.
Water pulse and Ancientpower are also two moves with extra effects that may help in your battle, water pulse has the chance of confusing your opponent while Ancientpower has the possibility of increasing your own stats.
However, Dunsparce's stats are quite poor and his movepool is limited too. It needs speed, thats for sure, and so its EV's and natures increase it.
Other than that, Dunsparce is an unremarkable pokekmon that is to beat.

EV Corner:

Max out the EVs in Speed for Dunsparce with any remaining in Special Defense & Defense
