Luvdisc, The Rendezvous Pokémon. During the spawning season, countless Luvdisc congregate at coral reefs, turning the waters pink. It's heart-shaped body is a symbol of love and romance. It is said that any couple meeting a Luvdisc is promised a loving relationship that never ends. It live in shallow seas in the tropics. This heart-shaped Pokémon earned its name by swimming after loving couples it spotted in the ocean's waves.

Lum Berry

Preferred Nature:


Strategy Using Luvdisc

I'm strongly against hax items, but for those that aren't, Bright Powder, Scope Lens or Focus Band belong where the Lum Berry is. I only put it there for the sake of being able to switch into status attacks. Substitute is there just in case you are up against an Umbreon or something that has no actual offensive moves and is there go screwed versus Luvdisc (the embarrassment for your opponent will be astounding). Sweet Kiss is there for the sake of stalling, same for Attract. Toxic is where you'll be doing "damage" (and that won't be much). Surf is there for the sake of an attacking move, ice Beam is there since some of the most overused Pokémon hold 4x weaknesses to it, and you may luck out and score a 2KO or a critical hit 1KO.

EV Corner:

Max Speed and Max Special Attack (with the last 6 Evs in HP, although it hardly matters).
Luvdisc isn't about to take any hits so you may as well Max out its Special Attack and pray for luck

Strategy Against Luvdisc

*Shifty Eyes* Just hit it. It has low defense so any strong attack should take it down quickly and easily

Contest Moveset

A good Contest Moveset for Luvdisc would have to be this for the Cute Contest best with Timid, Hasty, Jolly or Naive Nature:


Sweet Kiss
Rain Dance

Items Attached:

Pink Scarf

Strategy Using Luvdisc

If you do the attacks in this following order you should have very few problems; 1st - Sweet kiss, 2nd - Charm, 3rd - Rain dance, 4th - Surf, 5th - Sweet kiss

Animé Appearences

Luvdisc has had a few Animé Appearences. Firstly, Misty & Daisy had one each and used the two of them in a production at the gym. They also had to rescue them from Butch & Cassidy. After that, Adan of Sootopolis City had one and used it in his battle against Ash's Grovyle & Corphish
