I used this boi so much and while he does require smart play, he can be brutal at times (nearly swept with it once in arena, did sweep with it in a friendlies game as well). Im honestly surprised it isnt a tyrant, and im going to say it’s because of its base damage and gets mauled by Thor and most chompers (it does extremely well against anything that lacks distraction, rending, or defense shattering moves). Then I remembered theres a specific move in the files that nothing has, yet would be a perfect fit on Grypo’s kit: Ferocious Defense Shattering Strike
This move is a basic attack that does 1x damage that bypasses shields and armor, but buffs damage by 33% for 3 turns. This would also make sense because Purrolyth has ferocious strike, and grypo used to have it as well before it got reworked in 1.7. I personally believe Grypo may be a slight bit broken with this attack (nowhere near as bad as the Rat or an overboosted Thor though).
What are your thoughts if Grypolyth were to receive this attack for it’s basic attack instead of DSS?
