PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Counter should be paired with Dynamic Punch. This is Medicham’s best offensive moveset.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Counter is superior to Psycho Cut, dealing more damage to targets that resist Fighting-type attacks.

  • Ice Punch not only provides counter coverage but may also be the only charge move Medicham can use in the 10 seconds before it’s KO'd.

  • While Power-Up Punch may not be particularly powerful, its low cost can make it usable to deal with some attackers.

PVE Overview

Behold the most powerful Pokemon in the franchise, possessing an Atk stat only bested by… Blissey? Disgusting. Well, for what it lacks in offense it makes up for in… being more fragile than Alakazam? OK, move on people, nothing to see here.

In the console games, Medicham stands out as being one of the heaviest hitters. In Pokemon GO it’s missing the secret to its strength: the ability Pure Power. Pure Power doubles Medicham’s Atk stat, taking it from zero to hero. Alas, Pokemon GO doesn’t have abilities implemented. As a result, Medicham’s base stats are less than Spoink’s. On that same note, Medicham also receives a Mega Evolution in Generation 6, but the aforementioned lack of Pure Power will greatly hold it back unless Niantic makes more changes before then.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Counter + Power-Up Punch and Ice Punch OR Psychic

Counter is widely considered to be one of the best quick moves in PvP with 4 DPT (Damage Per Turn) and 3.5 EPT (Energy Per Turn). When combined with Power-Up Punch (20 Power/35 Energy) which has a 100% chance to boost your Attack, Medicham can tear through any Pokémon that doesn’t resist Fighting-type damage! Ice Punch (55 Power/40 Energy) is primarily there to handle Medicham’s Flying-type counters, especially Altaria, who takes nearly half of its health from a single unboosted Ice Punch! With its buff, Psychic is now also a viable option, giving Medicham a better time against Fighting-types and Poison-types, while also overall improving its neutral coverage. Keep in mind that this set does remove some of your shield threat vs Altaria.

Dynamic Punch can also be used over Power-Up Punch for massive Fighting-type damage, though this does slow Medicham down quite a bit.

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 4 / 5

Despite Medicham's fall from prominence as a result of Deoxys-Defense, and despite the nerf to Power-Up Punch, Medicham is still a beast in Great League. While its stats may be awful for PvE, they make this yogi a major threat to almost everything in the tier. Maxing out at 1431 CP at Level 40, it’s an expensive investment, but even the things that you’d think would counter it take some serious damage before it goes down. It's surprisingly bulky, and can hit impressively hard. Preys on tanks like Umbreon, Bastiodon, and Probopass, but struggles against Flying-types and Azumarill.

Ultra League: 0 / 5

While Medicham’s low CP cap may make it fantastic in Great League, it really doesn’t match up in Ultra.

Master League: 0 / 5

Medicham’s CP is far too low to make it usable in Master League. Look elsewhere.
