Houndoom's Moves

Moves unavailable in Pokémon Sword & Shield

Houndoom's moves are unavailable in Pokémon Sword & Shield. This may be because Houndoom itself is unavailable in the game, or it may be due to this being an alternate form of the Pokémon, in which case refer to the base form. (It might also be an error on the site! Apologies if that's the case!)

Houndoom's Detailed Stats

Below you'll find a more detailed table containing Houndoom's calculated stats, which are the stats that you actually see displayed in game. These are affected by a variety of things, such as level, Effort Values (EVs), Individual Values (IVs), and Houndoom's Nature.

By default, the stats you see in the table below show four different possibilities, all assuming Houndoom is level 100: its stats with 0 EVs, 252+ (max) EVs, 0 IVs, and 31 (max) IVs. Nature is not shown by default, so its maximum is 10% higher than shown here, and minium 10% lower.
