PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Confusion paired with Future Sight is good for a Psychic-type role.
  • Acid and Sludge Wave aren't amazing, but benefits from STAB and makes for a budget Poison-type role. 
  • Hex synergizes with Shadow Ball for a Ghost-type role, but actual Ghost-type Pokemon should be considered. 

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Confusion is the best fast move for defense due to its incredible base damage.
  • Hex is less likely to be resisted than Acid on defense, but the latter is better vs neutral attackers. 
  • Shadow Ball is more likely to be used as a 2-bar move, though it's also easy to dodge.
  • Future Sight is faster and stronger than Sludge Wave for defense, but neither might see use before Galarian Slowking faints. 

PVE Overview

Galarian Slowking has poor stats for raids and attacking gyms, but makes for a decent gym defender due to its resistances against common Fighting-type attackers. Unfortunately it has no real threat against attackers like Tyranitar.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Hex or Confusion + Shadow Ball and Future Sight or Sludge Wave

Confusion sports more than double the damage output of Hex thanks to STAB, but the latter offers faster energy gains, which are much needed for Galarian Slowking's costly charge moves. Acid is a poor move, even with STAB. 

Shadow Ball costs a moderately high amount of energy, but is faster than other available options and largely unresisted in the meta. Future Sight and Sludge Wave demand the same high energy cost and threaten a lot of STAB damage if unshielded; either can be viable depending on the preferred typing coverage. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 2 / 5

Galarian Slowking got shafted pretty hard with the movesets it received upon its release into Pokemon Go. While Confusion and Hex aren't bad at all, the only meaningful charge move is Shadow Ball. With such slow charge move options, Galarian Slowking falls behind many other Pokemon through its inability to pressure shields at the faster speeds that most meta Pokemon can provide. Overall an unfortunate disappointment, but a moveset rebalance in the future could make this Pokemon more viable. 

Ultra League: 2 / 5

Resistances to Grass, Fairy, and Fighting is largely what gives Galarian Slowking some breathing room in Ultra League. Most of the time plays will involve Hex + Shadow Ball, but without STAB nor faster charge moves, it's unlikely to perform well overall. Confusion tends to be more favorable for 2-shield plays thanks to its high STAB damage, whereas Hex prefers otherwise. 

Master League: 0 / 5

Behold, the glorious king of... slowness. So slow that it competes with Slaking in terms of who can faint the... slowest....
