PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Dragon Breath is the superior fast move of choice for PvE offense.
  • Peck isn't particularly strong, but can be chosen for a Flying-type role if stronger Pokemon aren't available. 
  • Sky Attack synergizes well for a Flying-type role, and is also the strongest charge move in neutral fights. 
  • Dragon Pulse makes Altaria a budget Dragon-type attacker if the player lacks stronger Pokemon. 
  • Dazzling Gleam outperforms Moonblast, but both lack STAB. 

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Peck is generally preferred on defense due to its higher base power than Dragon Breath
  • Sky Attack has the shortest damage window, and deals moderate damage as a 2-bar move. 
  • Dazzling Gleam lacks STAB but is less likely to be resisted by attackers. 
  • Dragon Pulse is easily dodged, and also most likely to be resisted. 
  • Moonblast as a 1-bar move might not have a chance to be used before Altaria faints. 

PVE Overview

Altaria, the Humming Pokemon, is the showy performer of the Dragon family, not a fighter. Its Attack stat is weak and its Health is middling. This alone makes Dragonite a stronger option on defense than Altaria. 

That said, raising an Altaria isn't a terrible option, as it is set to be a fairly efficent Mega Evolution. While its DPS is absolutely nowhere near the levels of monsters like Mega Rayquaza, it can spread its mega boosts for an extremely long time, which can actually work out better full-team average DPS depending on what its team mates are.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Dragon Breath + Sky Attack and Moonblast*

Dragon Breath is one of the strongest Fast Moves in the game, with incredible damage output. This allows Altaria to deal solid damage through shields, while also threatening opponents with charged moves. Peck is underwhelming in both damage output and energy gains. 

Sky Attack is both cheap and hard-hitting, which makes it Altaria’s most-used attack. Moonblast is a move limited to Community Day events and Elite TMs, but deals slightly more damage than Dragon Pulse even when considering STAB, provides the same coverage against Dragon-types, in addition to coverage against Dark-types. Its moderately high energy cost results in less frequent use, and Altaria is largely not dependent on it to see success. Dazzling Gleam is a downgrade due to its higher energy cost and less efficient Damage Per Energy (DPE). 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 4.5 / 5

Incredibly bulky with impressive damage, Altaria can power through most neutral matchups. It typically requires a dedicated counter to take down: its only issue is that some of them (namely Azumarill and Steel-types) are very common in the Great League meta. It also doesn't require much of a stardust investment to be built, so it can be a relatively easy addition to any team. If you don’t have one yet, you absolutely should.

Ultra League: 3.5 / 5

The Level 50 update made Altaria viable for the Ultra League too, if you're willing to max it out. It's quite similar to Dragonite there, boasting higher bulk, but also less aggressive damage output. However, Dragonite being so much cheaper to make can make the huge investment for a Level 50 Altaria a bit redundant.

Master League: 0 / 5

Much like in Ultra League, Altaria just doesn’t get powerful enough to handle any of the threats in Master. This cloud will just get blown away.
