You wouldn't expect to consider many of the Normal-type Pokémon to be a decent choice to use in Pokémon Go, especially in the PvP scene. But every now and then, some Pokémon surprise. Its stats and the unique set of moves a Pokémon learns allow it to excel, giving it even more depth than previously thought. Is this the case with Greedent? This guide explains if Greedent is good and how to best use it in Pokémon Go.
Greenent is a Normal-type Pokémon. It will only be against Fighting-type attacks and is resistant to Ghost-type moves. When you use it in PvP, it has a maximum CP of 2.370, an attack of 138, a defense of 135, and a stamina of 217. If you are using it for PvE battles, it has a maximum CP of 2.679, an attack of 160, a defense of 156 and a resistance of 260.
The surprising resistance given to Greedent makes it a much more robust Normal-type Pokémon, elevating it in battles, especially in the Large and Ultra Leagues. Even if you would never want to use it in the Master League, Greedent is a solid choice in the minor leagues. We've already listed the best moveset it can learn: the fast-moving bullet and the loaded crunch and body slam moves.
Since he is Normal-type, Greedent will be weak against some of the more common Pokémon choices in the Large and Ultra Leagues. In particular, Medicham, Heracross, Falinks, Scrafty, Sirfetch'd, Hitmonchan, Primeape, and many other Fighting-type Pokémon. You'll have to build your team around this huge weakness, but it's a surprisingly good choice. Due to its huge footprint, we recommend using it in the Lead or Closer options. It doesn't have a great deal of damage to be considered a Switch Pokémon.
Overall, Greedent is a good choice for Great and Ultra alloys. He is not extraordinarily powerful, but you can use him in your roster with the correct squad composition and IVs.
