PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Air Slash is superior to Feint Attack for raw power and STAB.

  • Future Sight is a powerful move and ideal on Xatu due to STAB.

  • Aerial Ace is slightly more powerful than Ominous Wind, but Ominous Wind’s Ghost-type effectiveness can be useful.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Air Slash does more damage, but Feint Attack has coverage against Ghost-type. Both can be considered.

  • Ominous Wind is slightly superior to Future Sight due to low charge time and counter coverage.

  • Aerial Ace can be considered for its damage potential due to low charge time.

  • Future Sight is not suitable on Xatu due to its poor defensive stats.

PVE Overview

Xatu is a stylish Pokemon with little to offer. It’s best quick move, Air Slash, doesn’t present any utility in the current meta. Future Sight is a good move, but Xatu lacks the sustainability for a one bar charge move, as well as a quick move that synergizes with it.

Xatu has many weaknesses as well; Rock, Ice, Electric and Dark-types all perform well against it. There isn’t enough power behind this Pokemon to be effective.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Air Slash + Ominous Wind and Aerial Ace

This move-set give you great Fighting, Grass, Bug, Ghost and Pyschic coverage. Air Slash, 3.00 DPT (Damage Per Turn) and 3.00 EPT (Energy Per Turn), is a solid fast move with balanced DPT and EPT. Pairing that with very quick charge moves is where Xatu shines. Ominous Wind is such a lottery move, full article explaining what Ominous Wind does can be found [here]. Ominous Wind, 50 Damage and 40 Energy cost, is a solid charge move that provides some key coverage while giving you that chance to become unstoppable. Aerial Ace, 55 Damage and 45 Energy cost, is similar to Ominous Wind being a small energy charge move able to cover key match-ups. This move-set will put pressure on the enemy to shield and fear you if you get that Ominous Wind proc!

Feint Attack + Ominous Wind and Aerial Ace

Feint Attack, 3.00 DPT (Damage Per Turn) and 3.00 EPT (Energy Per Turn), gives you different coverage compared to the Air Slash move-set. Covering Ghost and Psychic, Feint Attack still provides great damage and energy gain. Allowing you to still spam Ominous Wind and Aerial Ace. Ominous Wind, 50 Damage and 40 Energy cost, will cover those Ghosts and Psychic Pokemon while giving you the chance at the massive stat buff! Aerial Ace, 55 Damage and 45 Energy cost, will cover those Bug, Grass and Fighting Pokemon and still applying shield pressure on the enemy.

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League:  2/ 5

Overall in General Great League, Xatu isn’t the hottest thing on the block, it ranks very poorly according to PvPoke.com. But where Xatu shines is in the Nightmare Cup! A solid 5 out of 5 for the Nightmare Cup, Xatu will get the job done against the Nightmare Cup Meta!

Ultra League:  0/ 5

It’s combat power doesn’t reach up to 2500 and it gets dominated by Giratina. Best to use your Xatu in the Great League.

Master League: 0/5

Xatu has flown far from the coop of the Great League, best fly back!
