I decided to add
Growlithe to my team. A good attack doggo is what I need!
I read that
Growlithe was versatile and could be setup with high physical attack, speed and health points.
I gave him
Extreme Speed and
The first two moves have 33% recoil, but hits bloody hard! If I don't KO the opponent on the first move, I can use
Extreme Speed to finish the enemy off, or use
Roar to force the enemy to retreat. I will then top up my attack doggo with
Full Restore to deal with status effects / health top-up.
Growlithe with a fire stone after it became available.
