PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Dragon Breath’s speed, damage output, and greater potential for neutral-damage matchups make it a superior fast-move choice to Peck.
  • Sky Attack is quicker than Dragon Pulse and Dazzling Gleam, which makes for a higher damage output. Dazzling Gleam gives a little more damage per second than Dragon Pulse, but Dragon Breath paired with Dragon Pulse shares typing.
  • Peck and Sky Attack  share typing, but there are any number of better Flying attackers.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Peck paired with Dazzling Gleam does slightly more damage than the other two pairings, and Peck paired with Sky Attack offers shared typing.
  • Dragon Breath's lower damage and energy gain make those pairings not very effective for Altaria.

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, so while its Defense is slightly higher than that of Dragonite, if you were thinking you wanted to place a Dragon-Flying type in a gym, the Pokemon you’re thinking of would be Dragonite, not Altaria. Depending on how Mega Evolutions are handled, Altaria’s Mega form may be more interesting.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Dragon Breath + Sky Attack and Dragon Pulse

Dragon Breath is one of the strongest Fast Moves in the game, with incredible damage output and average energy gain (4 DPT, 3 EPT). This allows Altaria to deal solid damage through shields, while also allowing it to power out Charged Moves. Sky Attack is both cheap and hard-hitting (80 Power/45 Energy), which makes it Altaria’s most-used attack. Dragon Pulse (90 Power/60 Energy) is a solid second option which lets you push extra damage through on opposing dragons when shields are down. However, it does cost 15 more energy than Sky Attack, so be careful just throwing it out. 

Don't bother with Peck or Dazzling Gleam. There are better pure Flying attackers, and Dazzling Gleam is just not a very good move.

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 5 / 5

Altaria is an absolute monster in Great League, at one point warping the entire meta around it. Incredibly bulky with impressive damage, its Dragon and Flying offense makes it difficult to resist. It typically requires a dedicated counter to take down. In addition, the fact that it only costs 10,000 dust to buy it a second move, and doesn't even typically need to be powered up too far, makes it a relatively easy addition to any team. If you don’t have one yet, you absolutely should. However, be careful of getting walled by common Pokémon like Azumarill, Bastiodon, and Probopass.

Ultra League: 1 / 5

With a perfect Altaria maxing out at 2004 CP, it just doesn’t match up very well against the Ultra League meta. If you’re itching to use a powerful Dragon-type, take a look at Giratina instead.

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.
