Can Earthquake be used instead of Close Combat on Pinsir?

My advice, use Quick Attack OR Return, not both, so you aren't walled as easy. Then use that slot not used by one for Close Combat.


i really wouldn't do this tbh. they both have very useful merits and stab flying in this metagame is amazing, just look at talonflame for proof of that


Flying STAB isn't amazing. It's a meh offensive typing, and the main reason Talonflame gets away with it is because of the power of it and the Priority.


I disagree with you. I mean venusaur.

Zangoose is the one good Pokemon that came after Gen 1, everything else about Gen 3, as well as gens 2, 4, 5 and 6 is awful. I do not like Gen 3, just Zangoose.

Mine runs Quick Attack/Thrash/Earthquake/Swords Dance, and it does pretty well.

Some swear by Moxie to -potentially- get a boost before Mega Evolving, but Hyper Cutter allows you to not get Intimidated by switch-ins. Of course, then there's Mold Breaker which lets you EQ Rotom... though, I dunno how practical it really is to keep it in on Rotom anyways when you could get Willo'd and probably not OHKO it unless it has zero defensive investment.

Considering it's generally a smart idea to Mega Evolve it ASAP in any case, then yeah, it's fine.
