    Question What are the best moves for Ninetails?

    I want a ninetails in my team but I'm not sure what moves to teach it. Apart from the usual learnable moves, my vulpix (newly breeded--lv 5 at the moment) also has hypotise and faint attack after I crossed it with some other pokemon. Poochyena, I think. So you can recommend those two moves for my Ninetails too if you think that they are good.

    Please also say what stats I should train it in and what nature it should have too! I'm no newbie at playing pokemon, but I still have zero idea how to find good moves. Mainly my attack strategy is brute force. Hopeless, aren't I?

    I'll really appreciate everyone's help! Thanks!

    Don't evolve vulpix in a low level! Because from what I know pokemon that evolved by an evolutionary stones won't learn any single move but guess I'll put a standard flamethrower

    I know not to evolve it too soon.

    What nature should it have and what EV should I train it in?

    Ninetails have a big problem with their attack level soo guess you can start to train her.

    re

    Overheat&Fireblast are some good moves to teach her I always teach Overheat&fireblast to my Vulpix before I evolve it to ninetails.

    with the exception of the eevee-lutions, it's true. pokemon evolving by stone learn NO moves by lvl up.

    personally, i'd recommend flamethrower, dig, faint attack(pair female nintales/vulpix with a male skitty[learns faint attack lvl 27] to get this), and hyper beam or facade(lean towards facade if you still have the TM)

    give me a minute to figure out which nature would be best

    in order to work on attack most effectively, capture 1 with a brave or lonely nature. brave causes speed to rise more slowly, and lonely slows down defense, but both increase attack.

    Why are people so insistent on getting a high attack? I thought that sp. attack was more important.


    And all my vulpixes have faint attack and hynosis. And they are lv 5. I can do EV training for attack if it's that important but right now I don't see the point.

    I know that, and only 4 eevee it's better to evolve 'em sooner. Thee quicker the better 4 eevee

    Just like Baltoy said in Pokemon Mystery Dungeons '
    Balance! Balance is important' And sure vulpix have more moves with sp. atk than ordinary attack but 'better safe than sorry'

    aim for Attack or speed EVs; speed if it's a priority and attack if you want balance. It will take careful breeding if you want a high attack 9tails without having to sacrifice any stats.

    and you should evolve as SOON AS POSSIBLE!! As the stats go up more; even with EVs, it is important.

    im pretty sure Sp.Attack is a whole bunch more important for Ninetails.
    also, heat wave is one of the best fire moves a Vulpix/Ninetails can learn but im not sure if u can breed for it (when u snag a Vulpix in XD:Gale of Darkness it has it).

    but heat wave has an attack of 100 as opposed to flamethrower's 95 and heat wave hits 2 enemies although im not sure whether it gets halved or not (like surf).
