Delcatty, The Prim Pokémon. Delcatty prefers to live an unfettered existence where it does what it pleases at it's own pace. Because of this, it's daily routines are random. It sleeps where it wants and doesn't have a nest. If it is approached, it wont fight, but will move along to a new place.

Strategy Using Delcatty

For a fully evolved pokemon, Delcatty has been given poor stats and it can't really do much other than to provide some annoyance.
Delcatty's ability allows for a built in attract affect, so that gets rid of the need to use attract. Toxic is to poison your opponent and providing more annoyance.
Heal bell is useful if your opponent has the Synchronise ability or tries to use status effects on you. Return gains something from STAB and is there just for an attacking move.
There isn't much else that Delcatty could do, you could try it as a baton passer, but I doubt it would survive enough turns to gain the boosted stats and then pass them onto a new pokemon.
Other than poor stats, there isn't anything else to explain about Delcatty, its a shame really that such a cool looking pokemon would be given such poor stats.
