When this Pokemon was leaked, it was awesome. When the datamine stats came out, those who looked into it were sad. The stats are bad.

HP & ATK are just average. Speed is below Average.

Slightly Tanky. But it can?t compensate for being slow. Most pokemon outspeed you and will subject you to super effective hits on the first clash.

ATK & SA. Your atk isn?t great. You can dish out good damage and you will get beaten up.

Spirit Shackle: One good thing. Signature ghost move and 80 physical move. Stat & Decent damage and it prevents switching.

But the problem is, most Pokemon can handle Decidueye so this awesome signature move isn?t very practical more than half of the time.

Long Reach: Enemy Pokemon cannot make contact. Its great, but having just one great skill is not enough to pull up all Decidueye?s flaws.

Other Moves: Nothing really stands out. Curse, Haze, and Defog.

Z-Move Sinister Arrow Raid: 180 base power & ghost typing

Overall, Decidueye needs some buffs. It?s not a totally bad Pokemon, but it is incredibly underwhelming for a starter one. Decidueye can?t two hit KO a lot of the other Pokemon. Even average Pokemon, Weavile can stand against it. The worst part is, Decidueye doesn?t have a good chance of taking down mid-tier Pokemon in a single shot, but these Pokemon stand a chance at taking Decidueye out easily with super effective hits.

Would we recommend Decidueye? In general, no. But, if you want you play Pokemon Sun and Moon on hard mode then Decidueye is the perfect handicap for you!
