Strategy Using Masquerain

Masquerin stats are slightly below average and probably won't last long in many battles. The idea of this moveset is a simple annoyer. Stun spore, while not that accurate, can still be good when it does hit. Use attract on your opponent's pokemon (of course if its the opposite gender).
Use agility to increase that speed and use water pulse due to its special attack, which is greater than its attack strength, and it also has a chance of confusing. You might want to consider replacing Water pulse with Ice beam too, but there aren't many other choices to go for.
