Alolan Ninetales: Item Choices
These are the items we recommend equipping on Absol before you head into battle.

With Speedsters operating in the central wild area and ganking lanes, you'll want as much mobility and burst attack as possible. Float Stone is essential for any Speedster, while Muscle Band and Scope Lens ramp up the damage you'll deal with your basic attacks.
Pop a X Attack before diving on enemies for even more burst damage!
Absol: Starting Attack
Cooldown: 8 seconds
Has the user dash in an arc, attacking opposing Pokémon they come in contact with. This move ignores the Defense stat and shield effects of opposing Pokémon.
An exceptional gap closer and move used to dive over walls, Feint ignores opponents' Defense and any shields. Possibly one of the most powerful Level 1 moves in the game as a result!
Absol: Best Moves
The idea here is that you stalk your prey and burst them down. Night Slash is similar to Feint, but applies a slow, while Psycho Cut is potentially devastating thanks to the added bonus to basic attacks after use.
Cooldown: 5 seconds
Slashes in an outward arc, lowering the movement speed of opposing Pokémon for a short time when it hits. If used again, increases the user's critical-hit rate and has the user dash to the designated location, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon they come in contact with.
Upgrade at Level 11: Using this move again will restore the user's HP.
Cooldown: 7 seconds
Damages the opponent with a large slash. Decreases opponent's movement Speed and increases the power of the user's Basic Attack up to 3 times
Upgrade at Level 13: Also increases the user's movement speed for a short time when this move hits
Absol: Passive Ability
Increases the Pokémon's critical-hit rate.
