Population Bomb and how to get it in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, explained

Population Bomb is a powerful move that can be learned by Tandemaus and its evolution, Maushold. The former can learn it at level 46, while the latter can get it at level 53. These are the late stages of learning a new move, but that is because the move does so much damage.

Population Bomb works by essentially attacking an opponent ten times in one turn with Normal physical attacks. While each attack can potentially miss, the move has 90% accuracy, so it is probable to get over half of those hits in. If any of those attacks miss, the following ones will be canceled. When looking at Population Bomb’s description, you will see only 20 power under it, but adding that up with each successive hit, plus any bonuses you get from them holding an item, can leave this to be a devastating attack.

There are quite a few items you could give to your Maushold or Tandemaus to make this move even better. King’s Rock, Wide Lens, Razor Claw, Choice Band, Loaded Dice, and Muscle Band are just a few examples that can take this move from being very strong to overpowered. It doesn’t matter that the Pokémon themselves don’t typically have great stats; if you can get Population Bomb off, you are going to deal a lot of damage.
