PVE Movesets Grades
PVE Offensive Moves Explanation
Blast Burn, Typhlosion’s exclusive Community Day move, is the best Fire-type move in the game. Ember isn't great but is the only available Fire-type fast move.
Ember should otherwise be paired with Overheat, Typhlosion’s best Fire-type attacking set.
Shadow Claw has fun uses against Ghost and Psychic types, but it’s far from optimal.
Overheat outclasses Fire Blast in every way.
- Solar Beam’s lack of STAB renders it underwhelming.
PVE Defensive Moves Explanation
Shadow Claw is favored over Ember; both have identical defensive DPS, but the former has neutral coverage.
Typhlosion’s charge moves are awful on defense, but Solar Beam has coverage against Water, Rock, and Ground.
- Overheat is superior to Fire Blast in all aspects.
With so many options to choose from, Typhlosion finds itself struggling to be relevant. Flareon, Charizard, and Blaziken all have fully optimized movesets in Fire Spin and Overheat, and Moltres and Entei reign supreme. Typhlosion’s stats are identical to Charizard’s, but the lack of Fire Spin has it playing catch-up.
