I evolved my high IV Phanpy and got a Donphan with tackle and heavy slam for the moveset. I wanted something to fight gyms with or use often, was hoping to battle with him but that moveset seems to be no good especially if you have another pokemon with heavy slam..and a Snorlax I hatched has it so this Donphan will probably go unused :-\

I just caught a wild Donphan yesterday, it had 1950 cp, 123 hp, counter for its fast attack and earthquake for its charge attack.

He is bulky. Donphan with play rough is nice against dragonite.

Is anyone else seeing that it is rare for a donphan to get counter? A player in my town said he had got six donphans, all with tackle and his friend had the same luck. I have only gotten one, a 2570cp with talked and earthquake, sry, but I had to brag.

cp1723 97.8% female (short tusks) counter/earthquake.
battle sims are telling me that at lv.30, it'll be able to hold its own against most blissey variants up to 5 or 6 whole levels above it.

I somehow managed to get two perfect IV Phanpy's from Eggs, they both evolved with play Rough, which was disappointing, as I was hoping for STAB moves, but looking at the move list, thee only appears to be one Ground move you can get. I still can't believe I got two perfect IV Pokemon, first gen I probably hatched a couple during my entire time playing.

Just evolved a female Donphan with the ideal moveset the other day (Counter and Earthquake) from a Phanpy that I hatched from a 5 km egg. I want to try her out against Blissey in gyms to see how she fares.

Evolved my high IV Phanpy (from egg), and got Counter and Play Rough.

Double check the DPS math on Counter. I get 10 D / 0.9 S = 11.1 DPS
