ANALYSIS

Just to make sure we’re all on the same page: this analysis looks at Alolan Marowak in the Great League. Now that that’s out of the way, let’s take a look at why Shadow Bone Alolan Marowak is something to be excited about. 

With Shadow Bone, it gets access to a fast charged Ghost-type move that can replace Shadow Ball, which takes a longer time to charge, often to long before you can actually use it.

Also, Shadow Bone will have a chance at lowering your opponent’s Defense, which can flip a lot of matchups! Shadow Bone’s power surprisingly stands out when Shields are down, but also in other different Shield situations, it does the job. I’m not saying Shadow Bone is better 100% of the time, but we have to be honest: you’ll definitely want it. 

If you want a very thorough, in-depth analysis on Shadow Bone A-Wak, we recommend you to take a look at this Under The Lights article posted on the TSR subreddit page. JRESeawolf, writer of this article, is a great battler and has a lot of knowledge ready to share with you. Be sure to check out the rest of his work, it can be a real help!

A-WAK RAID DAY GOALS

I understand that not everybody is interested in a Raid Day focused on a Pokémon that only has use in Trainer Battles, especially when it and its exclusive move are locked behind Raids. But that’s another discussion for another time. However, fear not Trainers, as there are a lot of other goals to achieve during Alolan Marowak Raid Day. 

DEM SHINIES: In my humble opinion: Shiny A-Wak looks DOPE! If you didn’t get the luck to get a Shiny from previous Raids or during GOFest, now is the time!

RARE CANDY: Rare Candy is becoming almost as important as that dust these days with specific Pokémon, so this is a great way to stock up on some! 

TRADE FODDER: If you know a little something about PvP, you know that IV’s can be important. Trading your freshly caught A-Wak can be a good way to obtain a good IV spread for Great League. However, you’d have to trade with new friends in order to have a chance at getting close to a rank 1 Alolan Marowak, which isn’t that simple in current times.

SWING THAT BONE

Alolan Marowak Raid Day is one you don’t want to miss, at least if you’re into PvP. If you don’t have a Shiny yet, that’s also a great motive to participate. One can debate about it being locked behind a Raid Day whit an extremely powerful exclusive move, but it is what it is.
