Hello everyone and welcome to my 276th analysis, this time featuring Yimburbur.
Overview: Yimburbur's stats are very good for an attacker, having great numbers for all of his Base Stats. With Control Immunity by his side, it would seem like Yimburbur is a candidate to be an extremely successful attacker. Unfortunately, Yimburbur is yet another victim of the curse of Nature monsters - a very unimpressive movepool littered with unnecessarily many heals that are prioritized over crucial effects like Tortures, damage boosts or deny effects. Still, among these Nature attackers, Yimburbur is a notable one, since he can dish out notable damage and is good at staying alive. He faces very stiff competition from Yedra, though, who has a much better suited Trait for the job and higher Base Powered moves.
Attention Span and Strength To Survive are two moves that Yimburbur uses to extend damage and stay alive at the same time. This is done through AS's Double Healing and STS's Regeneration. Following these up with King Without A Crown results in great damage on a single enemy and probably healing Yimburbur up to full Life. Groundation is the final move that offers the most combined utility: it is an unresisted Base 40 AOE, which Yimburbur needs, and it applies a non-healing effect in Negate Healing to all enemies. This can be useful versus healing Relics which are extremely common.
2 Strength 1 Speed with Life Mutations is a standard for all attackers. If he had a couple of Tortures, I could recommend giving him a rainbow spread, but Yimburbur desperately needs 2 Strength to get as much damage as possible.
Teammate Options: It is not necessary, but Yimburbur could appreciate his allies giving him Stamina, since his extra turn moves consume a lot of it. Damage boosts are also useful since Yimburbur has none of his own. For more Teammate options, check out this article.
Countering Yimburbur: Hitting Yimburbur with Reverse Healing would totally destroy him since 3 of his 4 moves focus on healing effects. For more Counter options, check out this article.
