Pokémon GO Exploud is part of a family of normal type Pokémon with mediocre CP (2267) and mediocre stats. The only redeeming quality of the Pokémon GO Exploud is a decent STA (208). Its ATK (179) and DEF (142) are rather low, making Exploud a low-end defender and a horrible attacker.
Honestly, it’s not even on par with Miltank. As a defender, even Blissey’s pre evolved form Chansey, tops Exploud’s defensive stats. In conclusion, this Pokémon exists purely for filling up your Pokédex entry and gaining Stardust. Don’t expect anything special from this Exploud.
Where to find Exploud
Exploud is a cave dwelling Pokémon, and it is expected to be seen commonly along with ground and rock type spawns.
Whismur made its debut on the 313rd episode of the Pokémon series (Advanced Generation: Episode 39) titled “A Poké-BLOCK Party!”.
Exploud in the Pokémon GO meta
Exploud comes to Pokémon GO as a big disappointment, As normal types have traditionally been some of the top ranking Pokémon in the game.
Exploud has a bulky appearance and it looks like it can pummel other Pokémon to the ground, however, that’s really not the case when you consider it’s stats and moves.
Exploud will simply be a Pokédex entry in Pokémon GO. Fortunately, it shouldn’t be a problem to get an Exploud, as Whismur should frequently spawn alongside ground and rock type Pokémon.
