Dunsparce's good stats make it an individually solid Pokemon, but despite this, it is almost never worth using. Dunsparce serves the same role as Wigglytuff, yet it is wholly outclassed by it. Dunsparce lacks Body Slam and Double-Edge, forcing it to use Return, which has neither the paralysis chance of Body Slam nor the power of Double-Edge. Dunsparce also has marginally lower Special Defense, which makes its matchup against Octillery worse. Dunsparce does have slightly better Defense, which makes handling Fearow and Stantler easier before using Curse, but the difference is largely negligible. If used, a Curse set with RestTalk will be the most consistent way to get value out of Dunsparce, providing a win condition and a check to Chinchou, Dewgong, and Xatu.

Despite Dunsparce's good stats that make it an individually solid Pokemon, but despite this it is basically never worth using. Dunsparce is nearly identical to Wigglytuff, yet it is wholly outclassed by it. Dunsparce lacks the option to use Body Slam or Double-Edge, forcing it to use Return, which has neither the paralysis chance of Body Slam nor the power of Double-Edge. Dunsparce also has marginally lower Special Defense that makes its matchup against Octillery worse. Dunsparce does have slightly better Physical Defense that makes handling Fearow and Stantler easier when unboosted, but the difference is largely negligible. If used, a Curse set with RestTalk will be the most consistent way to get value out of Dunsparce, providing a win condition and a check to Chinchou, Dewgong, and Xatu. Dunsparce individually performs well, but unless used for surprise factor or alongside Wigglytuff, it isn't worth running on a team. (fluff)
