How To Use Eclyptor In Coromon





eclyptor coromon

Is Eclyptor good in Coromon?



Eclyptor has always been a popular Coromon due to its awesome design paired with its high speed and special attack. The only complaint I ever had about it was its lack of diversity in its move pool.



Those complaints are no longer valid since Eclyptor gained some additional attack strength and new moves with the Coromon 1.1.0 update. Its defenses are still lacking but its Trait, Menacing helps patch its Physical defense significantly.



Best Trait For Eclyptor



eclyptor-trait

The best Trait for Eclyptor is Menacing. This trait lowers the physical attack of an opposing Coromon whenever Eclyptor comes into battle. It has other cool traits at its disposal but being able to add some bulk is vital in keeping him alive as long as possible.



Its other trait, Dark Atmosphere triggers Twilight whenever it enters the field. Twilight in Coromon reduces the accuracy of all non-ghost type Coromon by 10%. Accuracy reduction can be useful and really annoying for the opponent.



It is a viable alternative if you are running a squad centered around causing as much mental anguish to your opponent as humanly possible. But, if you value longevity for your Coromon and your opponent's mental well-being, roll with Menacing.



If you want to Enhance this trait, here is what you can expect.



Trait Name Buff De-Buff
Menacing Lowers opposing Coromon's physical attack by one stage. -
Menacing+ Lowers opposing Coromon's physical attack by one stage. Opponents now require 2 more SP to use skills. -10% Attack, -25% Special Attack, -25% Special Defense
Menacing++ Lowers opposing Coromon's physical attack by two stages. Opponents now require 3 more SP to use skills. -15% HP, -20% Attack, -25% Special Attack, -30% Speed, -30% Special Defense


If the Coromon community ever comes up with a "little cup" or something similar, I can see these traits receiving a fair bit of use. The only worthwhile enhancement in my opinion is Menacing++ as it can severely debuff a sweeper instantly.



I probably would not use either Trait in a ranked battle since the de-buffs are not worth the ability to reduce my opponent's attack and marginally increase their SP usage.
