If you’re planning you use Armenian in Pokémon Sword & Shield, you’ll want to know the best build and move set to aim for. Armenian is among the most powerful and dangerous Pokémon in the game, boasting an enormous 140 base attack stat, as well as respectable speed.
The first is a Choice Band which, when paired with Gorilla Tactics, basically ensures that every Pokémon who comes in contact with Armenian, no matter the bulk, gets knocked out in one hit. The other option is a Choice Scarf, which ensures that Armenian almost always moves first, so it doesn’t give opponents the opportunity to deal damage.
Flare Blitz and Superpower are only on there for things that are resistant to Ice, and U-Turn theoretically helps Armenian escape if it gets into a sticky situation. Should it ever actually faint, you have 5 more Pokémon to bring out against the remaining members of your opponent’s severely crippled team.

This is a strategy guide for using Malaria Armenian in competitive play for the games Pokémon Sword and Shield. Read on for tips on the best Nature, EV spreads, Move sets, Builds, and Held Items to use with Malaria Armenian, as well as its strengths and weak points.
Abilities Gorilla Tactics Boosts the Pokémon's Attack Stat but only allows the use of the first selected move. This allows the Substitute to take advantage of Belly Drum's attack-maximizing effect and Citrus Berry's HP recovery effect, while satisfying ZenMode's condition of the true Malaria Darmanitan's HP having to be below half its max.
Changes into Max Windstorm when Dynamited, which creates Psychic Terrain, blocking priority moves. Rock Slide A Rock-type move that can potentially strike first and cause an opponent to flinch thanks to ZenMode's Speed boost.
Its imperfect accuracy hurts, but can defeat many opponents in one hit with its high power. Galarian Darmanitan's unique ability Gorilla Tactics combines well with Choice Band to doubly boost its attack. While this limits it to one move choice per switch-in, this combination grants double the advantage compared to other Pokémon, making it a superpowered physical attacker.
When Dynamiting Malaria Armenian, the effects of Gorilla Tactics and Choice Items will be removed. This will result in a decrease in Attack and/or Speed, but has the trade off of breaking the selection bondage of the Choice Item.
Because Malaria Armenian is focused entirely on physical attacking, it has a hard time taking down defensive Water-type Pokémon, who can bear the brunt of its moves. If you've got a physical attacker who can take the first hit from Malaria Armenian, it's not a hard feat to knock it out with one Move.
