Wynaut, The Bright Pokémon. It can always be seen with a big happy smile on it's face. To see if it's angry, look at it's tail. When angry it slaps the ground repeatedly with it's tail. Many Wynauts gather on moonlit nights to play by squeezing against eachother. By doing this, it gains endurance and learns to counter attacks.

Strategy Using Wynaut

There isn't really much to explain, its not like Wynaut learns a wide range of moves, or even has good stats. Its only decent stat is HP, which increases greatly when it evolves.
Wynaut may not be able to use Counter or Mirror coat well, so if you want to take out a member of your opponent's team, use destiny bond. Its better than nothing.
Maybe put charm in their in replace of mirror coat/counter, either way, Wynaut probably won't last long in battle.
Put EV's into the things that matter, Wynaut isn't going to attack, so special attack and attack EV's are useless. Speed could be a possibility, but even with a boost from EV's, it will still be slow.
Destiny bond should be the first, and probably only move you should consider using at the start of battle, since if Wynaut is hit by an attack of any sorts, it will most likely faint. You could possibly use Encore if you know your opponent will try a non-attacking move.
Overall, Wynaut is nothing is comparison to Wobbuffet, but Wynaut was never meant for battling, or serious battling at least.
