Tapu Koko is one of the guardian Pokémon of the Alola region, with a deep connection to the land itself. With the Tapu Koko Pin Collection, you get Tapu Koko both as a fun collector’s pin and as a never-before-seen foil promo card. Stand ready to guard the islands with Tapu Koko!
Tapu Koko is a high priority offensive threat in OU thanks to an ideal combination of speed, power, and a variety of team-supporting utilities at its disposal. It’s naturally electrifying base 130 Speed certainly stands out, allowing it to outrun and revenge kill most non-Choice Scarf Pokemon in OU sans Mega Alakazam, Mega Beedrill, and Ash-Greninja. Its fantastic Speed tier complements its access to U-turn and Volt Switch as well as its obscenely powerful Electric-type attacks thanks to stacked boosts from STAB, Electric Surge, and its chosen boosting item. Additionally, Tapu Koko’s access to Taunt allows it to also pressure defensively-oriented teams, adding to its rather underrated versatility. Though its bulk is nothing special, its defensive typing often gives it useful opportunities to switch in against U-turn, Knock Off, Outrage, and other similar attacks.
Although it has decent coverage, moves outside of Electric-type attacks can be rather underwhelming due to low Base Power and Tapu Koko’s only decent base 95 Special Attack stat. Because Tapu Koko’s bulk is just about average, it can typically only switch into resisted or particularly weak attacks. Regardless, all serious offensive teams always need to take Tapu Koko into account while other archetypes should never underestimate it.
