It has a good special attack and with high base power moves like Moonblast, it can deal a lot of damage. It also has plenty of support moves, making it a good partner Pokemon in Double Battles or a good Pokemon to switch into when expecting a special move. These are all of Florges’ strengths and weaknesses, as well as the Pokemon that best counter them in Scarlet and Violet.

Florges’ role as a support Pokémon is strengthened thanks to its ability, flower veil, and his Hidden Ability, Symbiosis. Flower Veil will prevent the stats of Florges and its allied Pokémon from being reduced. Symbiosis will allow Florges to give his own held item to his ally if she has already used hers. Allied Pokémon can use items like Berries, and Florges will be able to give them something like a Life Orb or another Berry.

Florges has the highest Special Defense in Scarlet and Violet, making them a good defensive pivot for switches. It’s best to hit Florges with physical moves from Pokemon with a high attack stat for this reason. He also takes reduced damage from:
- Dark – 1/2
- Struggle – 1/2

What are the best Florges counters in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet?
Bathroom, bronzongY tinkaton they are all good counters to Florges. Revavroom’s STAB moves hit Florges for super effective damage and resist twice as much as Florges’ fairy moves with her steel/poison type. Bronzong is bulky all around, but it will also resist Florges’ Fairy and Grass moves while dealing damage with any of his Physical Steel moves. Tinkaton isn’t that strong of a counter, but his good Special Defense and Typing mean that Florges can barely deal any damage while Tinktaton uses his Gigaton Hammer.
