Stuff Cheeks & Belch For The Whole Package

This build gives you the whole package of damage, HP recovery, shield, buffs, and enemy debuffs - making you quite the tank indeed! You won't need to worry too much about your HP levels running too low thanks to Stuff Cheeks as it either recovers your HP or gives you a shield if your HP is already maxed out. Head to the frontlines to cover your allies, hit enemies in range with Belch to damage them and slow them down, and then quickly use Stuff Cheeks when your HP runs low. You'll notice that this combo makes you quite the hard nut to crack! Work together with another ally as you defend and attack, and you'll get yourself some really quick enemy KO's.

Maximize Offensive & Defensive Potential

Aim to maximize Greedent's offense and defense by choosing Focus Band and Muscle Band to ensure that you can both survive an onslaught and also have the capacity to KO enemies even when alone. You can also consider swapping Muscle Band with Razor Claw because you'll be using your moves quite often and will benefit a lot from the post-move basic attack damage boost. Last but not the least, equip Buddy Barrier to aid your team with shields whenever you use your ult.

Covet & Bullet Seed For Synergistic Crowd Control

Using these two moves together has a synergistic effect: Covet has you run into enemies to damage them while dropping Berries, and Bullet Seed deals more damage the more Berries there are - making your attacks stronger as both moves progress. In addition, Covet lets you use Bullet Seed as you run around knocking enemies, which means you can double the damage you deal as you use both moves at once. With the shoving effect of Covet and the slowing effect of Bullet Speed, this build has the potential for crowd control and preventing enemies from reaching their objectives.

Pack On The Defensive Items

This build won't have the HP recovery that Stuff Cheeks offers, so make sure you compensate for that with more defensive items to give yourself more padding. While Focus Band is a given, consider pairing this with Rocky Helmet to maximize the effect of going head-to-head with several enemies at once whenever you use Covet. Then equip Buddy Barrier to give you and your allies that needed shield for key battles.

Reach Level 7 ASAP

This build runs Greedent in the jungle, and has one main purpose in mind: reaching level 7 as quickly as possible. At this point you'll get access to Belch, which will dramatically increase your damage potential.

Use Belch After Your Unite Move

The most powerful combo Greedent has at its disposal is spamming Belch during its Unite Move! For 9 seconds after using your Unite Move, your other moves will have no cooldown! This will let you deal massive damage with Belch spam.

Greedent - Basics & Advanced Tips

Greedent Basic Mechanics

This section has basic tips and tricks that you must know to effectively control Greedent. Treat this as a supplement to the Beginner's Guide.

Basics
Try to level up by assisting allies
・Your main power spike is at levels 5 and 7, when you can learn your new abilities. Until then, leveling up will be the most important thing. If you're not middle, you may want to let your lanemate get the last hits, however!
・You can also use EXP. Share to gain more EXP when assisting allies if you're playing Top or Bot
▶ How To Level Up Fast
Use Tackle to score last hits early
・Use Tackle to get last hits on Wild Pokemon in lane. It can be tempting to harass your foes, but it can often be better to focus on getting exp instead.
・Use Defense Curl to protect yourself as you charge in to get the last hit.
Defend your Goal during the early stage
・Greedent is a good Goal Keeper, especially when it learns Defense Curl, as it gives the user a shield while dropping berries to heal HP. Don't be afraid to chase enemies away by attacking them with Tackle while you defend.
・Stand on your goal to benefit from the healing!
▶ How To Block A Goal

Greedent Advanced Mechanics

This section is for those looking to up their play with Greedent. Treat this as a supplement to the Advanced Players Guide.

Advanced
Learn Covet for faster mobility
・Covet is a good move that deals damage to and stuns opponents while running. It also drop berries from Greedent's body, which increase its movement speed.
・You can use Belch (or Bullet Seed) while the move is in effect, making this a perfect move for chasing down enemies or escaping them when you are outnumbered.
・Stuff Cheeks will provide you with more healing, but you'll lose a lot of damage in doing so.
Learn Belch to maximize damage
・After using your Unite Move, you’ll be able to use one of your two abilities repeatedly with no CD. Belch has a much shorter attack time, letting you get in more attacks and making it easier to last hit wild Pokemon - we strongly recommend you pick Belch over Bullet Seed.
Use Unite Move during teamfights
・Greedent's Unite Move deals damage within an area, this can be used during teamfights, especially when contesting Boss Pokemon.
・Using this will allow you to spam Belch, dealing massive damage. Make sure you have this for every Drednaw fight, and especially the final Zapdos fight!

Greedent Strategy Guide

Top Lane Is Recommended But Can Go Bottom

Greedent Lane

Skwovet is generally recommended to go to the Top Lane, but can also opt to go Bottom depending on the route of your teammates. Skwovet won't be able to deal strong enough attacks to KO other Pokemon quickly at the start, so make sure you follow your teammates in battle so you can help defend them as they attack the other team.

Skwovet (Lv 1~) Strategy

Pick Tackle First

Although Defense Curl is a good defensive move, we recommend that you prioritize going offensive with Tackle first so you can KO Wild Pokemon quickly - a very important thing to consider at the earlier stages of the game. Aside from this, it also can deal damage to several Pokemon at once, so utilize this when targeting Pokemon that are lined up.

Low Attack At The Outset - Stick With Friends

You shouldn't struggle taking out Pokemon from Mid to Late Game, but you will find that your attacks are on the weaker side at the start. Avoid straight 1 on 1 fights with Pokemon & stick with your teammates so they can deal the attacks while you defend them.

A Great Goal Keeper With Defense Curl

As a Defender, you'll be one of the primary goal keepers of your team. Defense Curl makes this task even easier for you as you're granted a shield with this move and also drops a berry which you may consume later for HP recovery. Don't be afraid to chase enemies away by attacking them with Tackle while you defend.

Greedent (Lv 5~) Strategy

Moves Get More Dynamic From Lv5 Onward

Once you evolve to Greedent, you'll get two interesting move choices: either Stuff Cheeks or Covet. While both increase your speed, the former either recovers your HP or gives you a shield if your HP is maxed out, while the latter deals damage and throws enemies. Your choice will shape the kind of role you'll be playing from here on out, so choose based on whether you want to go defensive be a tough nut to crack with Stuff Cheeks, or if you'd rather do more crowd control with Covet.

Adapt Your Build To Your Attack Style

At level 7 you'll get a choice between two offensive moves: Bullet Seed and Belch. Bullet Seed deals more damage the more Berries you have and decreases the speed of your enemies. Note that you'll have to keep hitting the R button to deal the next successive shots. Belch deals damage in one go and slows down opponents with the added bonus of a quicker cooldown the more Berries you have. Both are great options, so choose based on your attack style and preferences.

Bullet Seed
Lv 7: Bullet SeedBullet Seed
Has the user spit Berry seeds in the designated direction, dealing damage to opposing Pokemon in the area of effect and decreasing their movement speed for a short time. The more Berries the user had stashed away, the more damage this move deals.
Belch
Lv 7: BelchBelch
Deals damage to opposing Pokemon in the area of effect and decreases their movement speed for a short time. If the user has any Berries stashed in its tail at this time, it consumes all of them. The more Berries the user had stashed away, the more this move's cooldown is reduced.

Mind Your Berry Gauge

image

Both of your level 7 options will in some way be affected by the amount of Berries you have stocked up. You'll want to make sure you're managing them carefully to maximize Bullet Seed's damage and Belch's cooldown reduction!

Greedent (Lv 7~) Strategy

Belch + Stuff Cheeks Build

Start with Belch to deal damage to the enemies in front of you and to slow their movement speed down. Follow up with Stuff Cheeks to restore the HP that you might have lost, get a shield if your HP gets maxed out, and increase your speed - which could come in handy in escaping if you find yourself in a pinch!

Covet + Bullet Seed Build

These two moves work great together as Covet has you run into enemies to damage them while dropping Berries, and Bullet Seed deals more damage the more Berries there are - making your attacks stronger as both moves progress. Start the combo with Covet and guide your movements to keep hitting enemies around you, then quickly follow up with several Bullet Seed shots while running around with Covet to double the damage you deal.

NoteThis build doesn't run Stuff Cheeks which means you'll be extra vulnerable after charging in without the HP restore. Consider saving your Eject Button for a quick escape.

Unite Move: Berry Belly Flop

Greedent's Unite Move, Berry Belly Flop is a great move to utilize in a pinch as it restores HP and lets you deal damage to a large area - damaging and throwing potentially several enemies at once. After that, the cooldown of all your moves are reset - giving you an advantage over your foes. This ult can easily turn the tables in a heated battle, so use it wisely!

Greedent - Timing Specific Guide

What To Do At Every Stage Of The Game

This section will teach you which specific Wild Pokemon to take out in what order, as well as exactly what to do at various stages of the game. Note that this is intended specifically for a Mid lane Greedent build!

10:00~8:50

If the middle lane is a desert, the locations of ③ and ④ are switched.

▶ Remoat Stadium Guide

Mid Lane Sequence 1
Target Level5
Tasks ① Learn Tackle
② Defeat Lillipup
③ Defeat Ludicolo
④ Defeat Bouffalant
⑤ Defeat Corpish
⑥ Go to the Bottom Lane

When going middle, you'll want to get Tackle first so you can jump over the wall to reach Lillipup. You can also use Fluffy Tail to help take out Ludicolo, thereby increasing your clear speed.

8:50~7:00

If the middle lane is a desert, the locations of ③ and ④ are switched.

▶Remoat Stadium Guide

Mid Lane Sequence 2
Target Level7
Tasks ① Defeat Combee & Vespiquen
② Return to base
③ Defeat Ludicolo when it respawns
④ Defeat Bouffalant when it respawns
⑤ Defeat Corpish when they respawn
⑥ Go to the Bottom Lane again

When fighting over Combee & Vespiquen, try to distract your opponents by attacking them. However, since you still won't have Belch yet, don't try to chase them.

7:00 First Drednaw Fight.

Target Level9
Tasks ① Defeat Wild Pokemon while preventing opponents from getting last hits
② Aim for the last hit with Belch
③ Collect Berries to restore HP when using Covet
④ Use Unite Move + spam Belch to KO opponents & Drednaw

Greedent's Belch is strong & has no cooldown when used after its Unite Move. This is excellent in teamfights, and especially a game-changer vs Zapdos and Drednaw. Do your best try to level up as soon as possible to obtain the Unite Move.

7:00 After First Drednaw Fight (Before the Final Stretch)

Target Level9 +
Tasks ① Charge your Unite Move by defeating Wild Pokemon/enemy Pokemon
② Aim for the last hit with Belch
③ Collect Berries to restore HP when using Covet
④ Use Unite Move + spam Belch to KO opponents & Rotom/Drednaw.

Greedent's Unite Move has a cooldown of 105 seconds - you'll want to have this up at every major objective, such as Rotom or Drednaw. Once you use this move, your goal will be to charge it up as fast as possible before the next big objective teamfight. Do this by defeating Wild Pokemon!

2:00 Final Stretch (Zapdos Fight)

Tasks ① Defeat opposing Pokemon while protecting your allies.
② Aim for the last hit with Belch
③ Collect Berries to restore HP when using Covet
④ Use Unite Move + spam Belch to KO opponents & Zapdos.

Try to check the map first before capturing Zapdos to see if opponents are gathering in the center. Try to capture Zapdos faster by Using Unite Move + Belch repeatedly if there's no opponents present in the central area yet. If the enemy has already assembled, however, you should of course prioritize the teamfight.

Pokemon Greedent Is Weak Against

How To Play Against Greedent

・ Attempt to bully it at the earlier stages while it's still Skwovet. Keep it at low exp for the first Drednaw fight.
・ Greedent can be a tough nut to crack when it has Stuff Cheeks in tow, so avoid engaging it and just focus on getting your objective.
・ Don't stack during teamfights - assume it always has its Belch + Unite Move combo up its sleeves.
・Always keep a safe distance if possible.
・Try to separate it from its dropped berries to prevent the buffs it gets from them
