PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Counter has superior damage to Bullet Punch due to STAB.
  • Rock Smash is slightly worse than Counter on offense. 
  • Brick Break and Close Combat are extremely close in terms of performance; this is up to personal preference.
  • Fire Punch, Thunder Punch, and Ice Punch have little use on offense. 

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Rock Smash is Hitmonchan's hardest-hitting fast move. 
  • Bullet Punch offers no defensive type advantages and lower damage than Counter
  • Brick Break has the most damage of all of Hitmonchan's charge moves. 
  • Ice Punch offers coverage against Flying-types and has superior damage to Thunder Punch.
  • Fire Punch has no utility on Hitmonchan. 
  • Close Combat is not viable due to Hitmonchan's poor HP.

PVE Overview

Shadow Hitmonchan doesn't have much use. Invest in Shadow Machamp instead.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Counter + Power-Up Punch and Ice/Fire/Thunder Punch

Counter is the best fast move for Shadow Hitmonchan, and benefits from STAB. Bullet Punch is suboptimal stat-wise and doesn't have any real use; it can cover Shadow Hitmonchan's weakness to Fairy-types, but you shouldn't be staying in for those fights anyways. 

Power-Up Punch is weak, but can snowball its attack stat after just a few uses, while Fire Punch, Ice Punch, and Thunder Punch each offer outstanding coverage options, and should be chosen based on what Hitmonchan is being used to counter.

Counter + Ice/Fire/Thunder Punch

Using two out of three of the elemental punches grants Hitmonchan outstanding coverage, though without Power-Up Punch, Hitmonchan's damage output suffers.

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 2 / 5

Shadow Hitmonchan has outstanding coverage options, but a lack of real power to back it up. It can definitely be useful if played to its strengths and its role compression, but it's not a generally large threat.

Ultra League: 1.5 / 5

Shadow Hitmonchan has the same advantages of its large coverage profile, but the competition makes it hard on our favorite boxer.

Master League: 0 / 5

Hitmonchan is a midweight at best, so trying to jump into the heavyweights is not a good idea.
