Have any questions about Pokémon that you'd like answered?

If they're about the value of a piece of merchandise you own or found, please ask them in the new Weekly Value Questions thread!

If you're asking or answering questions about the new games or recent anime episodes which contain spoilers, please be sure to include spoiler tags around them using the format:

Rebuild Tuesday [Rebuild Tuesday] Trevenant

8 Upvotes

Hello everyone!

Welcome to this week's edition of Rebuild Tuesday, a weekly event we're doing along with our Discord!

This week's Pokémon is Trevenant!

#709 Trevenant (Japanese オーロット Ohrot)

Elder Pokémon

It can control trees at will. It will trap people who harm the forest, so they can never leave.

Trevenant's Base Stats:

  • HP: 85
  • Attack: 110
  • Defense: 76
  • Sp. Attack: 65
  • Sp. Defense: 82
  • Speed: 56

Smogon Info

Introduction:

Hey Trainers, welcome back to Rebuild Tuesday!

Rebuild Trevenant

This week we are going to be rebuilding Trevenant.

At 110 it has okay attack, and somewhat respectable bulk but overall Trevenant leaves much to be desired. In Pokemon Sword and Shield Trevenant gained Horn Leech and Poltergeist, two very strong moves that were much needed in it's kit; Trevenant remained in PU despite these gains.

Trevenant often finds itself outclassed offensively by stronger mons. In SM it was outclassed offensively by Victreebel as a grass type and by Golurk as a ghost type. Defensively Trevenant is completely outclassed by Tangela. In SwSh PU Trevenant faces competition from Gourgeist-S due to being much slower.

How viable do you trainers think Trevenant is? Is there anything else you think it needs in order to be a good competitive Pokémon (e.g. new moves, stats, abilities or typings)? What is its most optimal set?

Trevenant on - Bulbapedia) | Serebii

For those who want to see previous Pokémon covered, you can view a list of our Gen 7 rebuilds here and our current SwSh series here.

We'd also suggest checking out our Discord each Tuesday for live discussion on these topics as well!

If there are any new Sword/Shield Pokémon (or returning Pokémon with significant changes from previous gens) that you'd like to see featured in future weeks, let us know by sending a PM via modmail with your suggestion!
