Default How do I get a hitmonlee with the reckless ability??

I caught a tyroge in my pearl version then evolved it into hitmonlee and it had the limber ability. Is it just chance or what? How can i get one with the reckless ability?

If I remember correctly, it's a 50/50 chance for each ability to arise.

By accepting he's a sweeper that's gonna die anyway.

OP, Hitmonlee doesn't even need recoil moves to function effectivly, and limber is a far more beneficial ability. Go with the following:

Hitmonlee@Life Orb/Choice Band/Choice Scarf
Jolly (Adamant if scarved)
252Att/252Spd/6HP
Close Combat
Earthquake
Stone Edge
Mach Punch/Blaze Kick

High Jump Kick+ Reckless is equal in strength to a regular close combat, but has poor accuracy and a big chance of killing oneself. Likewise double edge has poor coverage when compared to the other non-recoil moves at hitmonlee's disposal.

Actually, I plan to use him in a double battle. I'd have my aerodactyl do defog and than hitmonlee can keep doing a high jump kick that wont miss ever miss. So the power will be doubled and i wont have to worry about recoil

As I mentioned before, close combat is just as powerful as high jump kick+reckless at base 120. Therefore you don't have to waste your ability trying to help a single crappy move be better, and you an make yourself immune to paralysis instead.

I personally agree with Gofre but if you have a brilliant strategy then go for it

That's the thing, it's not a brilliant strategy. Here is his strategy:

*He choose reckless
*He chooses high-jump kick
*He makes aerodactyl use defog (Which is also switched out of)

This leaves him with: A fighting attack with 100% accuracy and 120 damage

Orrr:

*He chooses Close Combat

This leaves him with:
*A fighting attack with 100% and 120 Damage
*An ability which makes him immune to being paralysed, so he can sweep even better.
*An extra moveslot on aerodactyl.

What does the first strategy offer over the second? Nothing.

I said I agree with you before, and I LOVE the Limber ability because it has saved me a lot, and I think Close combat is a great move so Kangaskhan you should listen to Gofre

I know, I just thought I'd outline the exact reasoning for the OP.
