How good is Obstagoon with Obstruct?
Obstagoon is already a top contender in Great and Ultra League. At worse, Obstruct will be a sidegrade to its existing move options. At best, Obstruct gives Obstagoon more dynamic play than before and allows it power through neutral matchups similar to Nidoqueen. Obstruct has two guaranteed stat effects at 40 energy (compared to Acid Spray at 45 energy and Feather Dance at 50 energy). Obstagoon can leverage this best in the Ultra League where it has more bulk to take advantage of the stat boosts.
Obstagoon is likely to continue using Night Slash as its primary Charged Move, with Obstruct as a secondary move option. Obstruct Obstagoon should shield early, throw Obstruct once or twice early in a matchup, and rely on Counter and Night Slash damage the rest of the way.
