How to Counter Pawmot in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
Pawmot can be a real pain in the ass due to its unique writing, statisticsY coverage moves. It can learn Ice Punch to threaten Ground-types, as well as Crunch and Metal Claw for Psychic and Fairy-types. Also, his signature move, Double Shock, removes the Electric-type from him, removing any Ground buffs.
Due to Double Shock, we recommend going with Fairy either Psychic pokemon like hatterene, Armarouge and Ghothitelle. These will easily counter his Fighting type and have a solid bulk to resist hits. For land type Pokémon, your best option is Palossand, as its Ghost/Ground-type combo makes it immune to most of Pawmot’s attacks. Other options would be Hippodon, Sandaconda, Mudsdale, Donphan, and Gastrodon.
