Spoink, The Bounce Pokémon. It bounces on it's tail. The shock of it's bouncing makes its heart pump. Due to this, it has to keep bouncing or it's heart will stop. It keeps a pearl on the top of it's head. This pearl amplifys it's psychokinetic powers. It is therefore in constant search of a bigger pearl

Strategy Using Spoink

Introducing Spoink, the pig on the spring and a quite unique pokemon.
This pokemon has quite poor defense and attack, however this doesn't make it a bad pokemon. It does have slightly below average special stats. Its speed isn't too bad either.
This moveset is simple, set up a Light screen/reflect and switch to a different pokemon. If you don't want to leave it here, use toxic(or replace with confuse ray to add that extra chance of your opponent missing.) and then reflect/light screen and switch.
Leave the trickbanding to the evolution and just use Spoink as a supporter. Use Psychic incase this pokemon is your last, it may come in useful when you need it.
Put EV's into Speed and Special defense, putting any in defense would be a waste since a majority of physical attacks could knock out Spoink in one hit, even if it was boosted with EV's.
Overall, Spoink isn't such a bad pokemon and when it evolves it is most likely one of the better psychic pokemon available.

EV Corner:

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