Strategy Using Combusken

Combusken, a pokemon with equally good attack and special attack but poor speed which might cause problems. It has been given one of the worst stats for speed and probably won't last long to pokemon that have type advantages over it, such as psychic types. Bulk up is to help raise its attack and defense. Brick break and flamethrower are for STAB and with the attack strength increase with Bulk up Brick Break then it will become a powerful tool in battle. RockSlide is simply there to cover any other weaknesses it may encounter such as flying types. If you don't think that Combusken can survive another attack, then its best to switch out since it probably won't survive the attack.
