Because of its high DPS output, the best moveset for Exploud is as follows:

  • Fast Attack—Astonish (Ghost-type)

If you've yet to net yourself an Exploud, you can do so by evolving Whismur into Loudred with 12 Whismur Candy and then Loudred into Exploud with 50 Whismur Candy. Whismur can be found as a random spawn in the wild, so if you've yet to catch one, keep looking.

It sometimes appears in the Pokémon GO egg pool, so you may get one in either 2km or 5km eggs, but stumbling upon it in the wild is more common.
