While Strawna looks like a Cherrim clone at first glance, looks can be quite deceiving. In reality, it's one of the strongest non-starter Grass-types available, carrying a meaty base 120 Special attack and a solid 105 Speed. Its pre-evolution also comes reasonably early, being available right before the third gym, which specializes in Water-types. However, outside of Grass-type attacks and a few choice moves such as Focus Blast and Hydro Pump, its movepool leaves quite a bit to be desired. Additionally, it's quite frail, with its highest defensive stat being its 75 base HP, not helped by its lackluster Grass typing. Its pre-evolution is also quite weak until evolution, though thankfully it evolves somewhat early. Overall, Strawna is a solid choice for a glass cannon special attacker, and a good alternative to Caudaleaf.
