HOW TO EVOLVE?Forretress Pokémon | Evolution, Weakness, Moveset, Stats, And More!

It evolves from Pineco starting at level 31.

HOW MUCH USEFUL IS MY FORRETRESS?

Use Forretress as a sponge against physical attackers like Zygarde-10% and Escavalier, and use Spikes or Rapid Spin when given free turns by them. Do not attempt to utilize it as a wall over extended periods of time, as Forretress is prone to be whittled down and won’t be able to effectively pivot into the threats it’s supposed to check.

Instead, it performs excellently as a defensive pivot, switching into attacks and pivoting out to safety, bringing another teammate in with Volt Switch. Use Volt Switch against sweepers that can use Forretress as setup fodder to prevent them from cleaning your team. When an opposing Ghost-type is on the field, try and predict if it will attempt to switch into Forretress to spin block it, and switch into an appropriate countermeasure or use Toxic on them.

While it cannot switch into powerful special attacks, Forretress’s wonderful defensive typing does allow it to come into certain resisted attacks such as Blizzard from Mega Abomasnow and Moonblast from Choice Scarf Gardevoir. Try and spread Toxic poison as much as possible to cripple walls such as Cresselia and Mandibuzz.

So, does the Moveset, weakness, and other information seem worthy of Forretress Evolution? Then right away head to Forretress Evolution.

And if the case is otherwise then you may like to see some other Pokemon Evolution rather than the one for Forretress and can see for whatever Moveset, weakness, and other specification suits better. Visit Herald Journalism for that!
