- HP: 70
- Attack: 58
- Defense: 58
- Special Attack: 87
- Special Defense: 92
- Speed: 90

But every Pokemon has a weakness – including Thievul.
What is Thievul Weak Against?
As a Dark-type Pokemon, Thievul is weak against Fighting, Bug, and Fairy-type moves. Thievul takes 2x damage from these moves.
Players can use Fairy-type Pokemon like Sylveon and Fighting-type Pokemon like Kommo-o to heavily damage Thievul. These Pokemon benefit from the 50% STAB bonus when using moves that match their type, so they’re a great option if you want to beat Thievul quickly.
Pokemon that know Fighting and Fairy-type moves like Close Combat and Dazzling Gleam can also deal extra damage to Thievul.
