How to counter Scovillain in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Scovillain is a Fire/Grass-type Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. This gives it only three weaknesses, one of which it can counter with its Grass-type. It has equal Attack and Special Attack, meaning it can be built as a physical or special attacker. It also learns a variety of coverage and status moves, making it even more annoying.

When battling Scovillain, we recommend going with a Flying or Poison-type Pokémon. It doesn't have great bulk or defenses, meaning if you can outspeed it, you can knock it out before it has a chance to act. A fast Flying-type is the best choice, as Scovillain can only learn Rollout for a super effective attack against Flying, whereas it can learn numerous Grass moves for Rock and Zen Headbutt for Poison-types.
