Spoink is known as the “Bounce Pokémon” and Grumpig as the “Manipulate Pokémon”, but their stats won’t manipulate anyone in a Gym. Grumpig’s stat distribution is uniform and well rounded, however the values are plainly mediocre, making this psychic piglet nothing more than a Pokedex filler.
Where to find Spoink and Grumpig in Pokemon GO?
In Pokémon Go, you can encounter Spoink and Grumpig in biomes similar to the accursed Drowzee biome. Cities, fields, everywhere.
Grumpig in the Pokémon GO meta
With 2310 CP, Grumpig isn’t good enough to land within the high ranks. At best Grumpig will be a mid-end defender and a low-end attacker.
If placed as a defender in a gym, Grumpig can secure the lower-mid tiers, and can fend off steel, fighting, ghost and dark type challengers.
Grumpig does not have a mega evolution. So, this is pretty much everything we can get out of this Pokémon. Its yet another Pokémon for the Pokédex.

We expect the following moves to be a part of Grumpig’s move pool:
- Extrasensory psychic
- Psychic psychic

In addition, we expect that at least some of these moves will be added to Pokemon GO and eventually appear in Grumpig’s move pool:
