Bellibolt is one of the new Pokemon introduced in Scarlet and Violet, and while this electric frog isn’t OP or anything, it’s still seeing a little bit of usage. What Bellibolt lacks in speed, it makes up for in bulk, so you want to be sure to take advantage of that.

As mentioned earlier, Bellibolt has some natural bulk with strong HP and decent defensive stats. But don’t let that fool you — thanks to its unique Electromorphosis ability and good Special Attack, Bellibolt can deal some damage as well. That’s why you want to go with a Modest nature while investing EVs in Special Attack. You’ll want to invest the rest in HP.
To complement Bellibolt’s bulk, take some Leftovers and learn Parabolic Charge. Given Bellibolt’s low speed, it’s likely that you’ll be hit first, which will activate your Electromorphosis ability, boosting the power of the next Electric move. This will help boost Parabolic Charge’s meager 65 base damage. The good news is that you’ll recover 50% of damage delt. This demonstrates the perfect synergy between Bellibolt’s low speed, Electromorphosis ability, and Parabolic Charge. If you’re not hit with a supereffective move, you’ll likely survive.
While Bellibolt is “kind of” bulky but also “kind of” a sweeper, it also acts as “kind of” a support. Mud Shot is a great move to tack on it because it can help slow down sweepers. It doesn’t hit hard but it has a 100% chance to lower the opponent’s speed! Afterwards, you can use Volt Switch to safely bring in your threats and hopefully outspeed the opponent.
