Hi Marvin here and today I’m showing a set for Torracat that I have found some pretty decent success with. Torracat is relatively decent all things considered and it prefered over incineroar for what this set’s niche is based on torracat being faster than incineroar. So let’s get started.

This Set is designed to counter steel type walls, setup and physical sweepers. Torracat while not being bulky to begin with comes with intimidate. That with eviolite makes torracat capable of at least taking one hit from a physical attacker, but add in will o wisp and torracat can easily take super effective hits if it out speeds and burns a mon trying to take it out. The one thing you’ll need to keep in mind is speed. If you’re thinking you might be outsped swap out this cat into something that can deal with it. Torracat being a fire type makes it ideal for forcing a switch against ferrothorn and scizor, use that opportunity to use u turn to get in a little damage and switch in your counter measures safely. Your last two moves are your stab flamethrower and your taunt. Taunt is one of the most important moves on this set so use it wisely. 

This set does have weaknesses. Despite the previous tangent of torracat’s surprising bulk most players are smart enough to not to fall for it and if you can’t set it up properly you will not being keeping you cat out for long. Torracat has a lot of utility and so when you come across a match up that could easily take it out be careful of your next move as you might need it later. Since most of torracat’s bulk is on the physical side it is ill advised that you send it against special attackers unless you have type advantage against their moves with some exceptions. Serperior in particular is a bad matchup as it can easily beat torracat with contrary leaf storm and players can switch into heatran if you try to burn their pokemon. Torracat is not supposed to work alone and so it is recommended that you build a team that can both benefit from it’s utility and support it when it’s in a pickle.

And that is the set for our favorite fire kitty. Big thanks to our fellow SL member and Ghost Gym Leader Odds! Without his help and knowledge I wouldn’t have even come up with this set.
