PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Smack Down* and Stone Edge make Shadow Tyranitar a very solid Rock-type attacker.
  • Bite and Crunch make Shadow Tyranitar a very solid Dark-type attacker.
  • Iron Tail and Fire Blast make Shadow Tyranitar a very awkward/sub-par attacker.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Iron Tail is preferred on defense since it's not resisted by Fighting-types. 
  • Smack Down* performs better than Bite on defense. 
  • Crunch is the charged move of choice for defense, as it comes out often and has good neutral coverage.
  • Stone Edge has high damage and is hard to dodge, but probably won't be used more than once either.
  • Fire Blast provides decent coverage, but it probably won't be used more than once, if at all. 

PVE Overview

Shadow Tyranitar is a return to form for the tyrant of the early-game raid scene. Its sub-par damage output is largely healed up by the Shadow boost, and it's become a real threat that is easily on a par with the Legendary/Mythical Pokemon that it competes with as a Dark or Rock Type attacker. If you're lucky enough to rescue a decent Shadow Larvitar, then this monster will serve you well!

PvP Moveset Explanation

Smack Down* or Bite + Stone Edge and Crunch

Smack Down tends to be a stronger option than Bite due to superior energy generation, which is notable due to Tyranitar's costly charge moves. However, the latter lets Tyranitar become a Ghost- and Psychic-shredding machine. Iron Tail is a poor move. 

Crunch costs the least amount of energy and benefits from STAB. Stone Edge is powerful and provides good coverage, but costs quite a lot of energy to use. Fire Blast demands too much energy to be consistently worthwhile. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 2.5 / 5

Tyranitar’s heavily attack-weighted stat distribution does it no favors down in Great League. A double weakness to Fighting-type damage, in addition to weaknesses against common Water, Grass, and Ground-type attacks, makes it a very risky Pokemon. While it shines in certain limited metagames, its stats combined with the fact that a lot of other things can do its job don't leave it super happy.

Ultra League: 2 / 5

The higher CP cap in Ultra allows Tyranitar to perform better, though not necessarily well. Its Rock/Dark typing gives it a solid matchup against both Giratina forms, but make it much weaker against Fighting-types, in addition to Grass and Water Starter Pokemon.

Master League: 3.5 / 5

Tyranitar's not bad, it's just poorly positioned. It's got stats, it's got moves, it's just...it doesn't beat much? While incredibly powerful against Mewtwo and the Giratinas, it fails to handle the top Dragons in the format, and it stands no chance against powerful Waters like Kyogre. It's good against, like, Lugia, at least? That's something?
