Pokémon GO Absol

Pokémon GO Absol is a dark type Pokémon with Max CP of 2280. Absol is shaping to be a great glass cannon, especially with a strong moveset. With a great Attack stat (246), we expect Absol to fill a similar niche like Banette — a solid, mid tier, offensive glass cannon.

Absol has 120 Defense and 130 Stamina, which is low, but it does balance things out. In the core game Absol can have the Super Luck ability which increases the critical hit ratio — basically increases your chance to crit. If this gets implemented with Gen III release, Absol has the potential to be a real DPS beast.
