We have all been there: you are playing the game and your opponent has a pokemon with the move flash. You sit there, dumbfounded, as he or she flashes again and again to outmaneuver you. However, what many people don’t know is that not every pokemon can learn this powerful move! This blog post will list all of the Pokemon capable of learning Flash in order to help you be prepared for any match ups that come your way.
Abra: Yes, this pokemon is capable of learning Flash. It can also learn Teleport, which helps it escape from any dangerous situation.
Gastly: This ghost type may not be able to hurt opponents with the move and instead only spook them for a little bit of damage, but it does have access to plenty of other moves that do significant amounts of damage via statuses like sleep, poison or confusion.
Zubat: This flying type has always been associated with being annoying because its high speed makes it difficult to catch for many people who play Pokemon Go! However, in order to get around quickly at night while trying not to attract predators like bird types or bear types into your area you need some way
Girafarig: This pokemon comes with the ability Sap Sipper, which it can use to steal some health from opponents when they attack.
Growlithe: It has access to moves like Crunch and Bite, both of which do a good amount of damage while also applying nasty statuses in the process such as confusion or burn.
Kangaskhan: A mother’s love is strong enough to make any Pokemon stronger! The Mega form for this powerful Normal type makes them even more defensive than usual by boosting their defenses and making it so that all attacks aimed at them have an equal chance of being blocked on contact instead of having a lower chance if you don’t block first. Their signature move Double Edge does significant amounts of damage, but it also forces them to endure recoil damage on the next turn.
Mawile: Despite their low stats and heavy reliance of moves like Fairy Lock which will end up being broken by opponent’s stronger attacks, they have a few strong points that help make them an effective fighter in battle. They can use Swords Dance to increase its attack power, as well as Mega Evolve into Mega Mawile for more offense while still protecting themselves with Baton Pass.
Chinchou: With access to Volt Switch and Discharge this Water Electric type is always ready for what comes next! Their signature move Constrictor does a solid amount of damage so long as the target hit doesn’t break free from the whip before the finish command gets executed .
Chandelure: One of the few Ghost types in Pokemon GO, this Pokémon’s Shadow Ball and Hex are an excellent combination for what is a very popular type. Also like Misdreavus their signature move Lick does damage but also prevents enemies from fleeing with Haze before getting hit by any other attacks.
Gengar: The iconic ghost type has access to Confuse Ray which can make opponents do less damage! They also have Mean Look that will lock onto opponents making them unable to escape while they try to attack (but still take recoil). Finally, it gets Destiny Bond which means if they faint then whatever was fighting them will receive some serious damage too!
Porygon Z: With its ability to learn the move Z-Conversion, this Pokémon is a multipurpose powerhouse for any competitive team. It also has access to Tri Attack which can be used in many different ways (like from behind with Thunder Wave) and Spacial Rend that deals damage based on what type of Porygon your opponent’s using against you!
Onix: This Steel/Ground Pokemon gets Rock Smash as their signature move giving them an advantage over other Ground types who have no way to attack rocks. They’re also great at setting up Sandstorm boosts because it becomes more powerful when they use Protect or Roar making their opponents less likely to escape while they set up Trick Room too!
Klinklang: Comes equipped with two great moves in Shift Gear and Autotomize, this Pokemon is amazing at setting up Trick Room. With access to a powerful Z-Move called Gigavolt Havoc that hits hard but prevents it from using its Speed Boost ability for the next few turns, they can really pack a punch!
Sableye: This Ghost/Dark Pokemon can learn the move Trick Room which makes it a great addition to any team that’s struggling with speed.
Uxie: With access to moves like Stealth Rock and Taunt, this Psychic type is an amazing lead for teams who want their opponent set up on entry hazards or disrupt special attacks coming from walls when they’re at full health so your teammates can take care of them more easily!
Swinub: This Ground/Ice type Pokemon can learn a few moves with Ice types in mind, but its main draw is how it’s capable of learning the move Icicle Crash and that makes it great for setting up Trick Room!
Arceus: With access to several powerful Z-moves like Extreme Speed or All out Pummeling, this Normal type has many different options. It also learns Judgment which hits incredibly hard if you’re trying to set up Trick Room since your opponent will hopefully be fully paralyzed from slower speed than them on entry!
Chespin: Another Grass type who can use Spikes well thanks to their ability Sap Sipper. They also have access to Synthesis as an option.
