PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Tackle gets STAB, but can't be Super Effective vs anything.
  • Hex has inferior damage, and lacks synergy with Castform's charge moves. 
  • Weather Ball can be used frequently as a 3-bar move, and benefits from STAB. 
  • Hurricane and Energy Ball don't have any use, and they lack STAB. 

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Hex has stronger damage on defense, and is largely unresisted. 
  • Tackle gets STAB, but can't be Super Effective vs anything.
  • Weather Ball is strong on defense as a 3-bar move. 
  • Energy Ball is a downgrade, and is very easy to dodge. 
  • Hurricane hits Fighting-type attackers, but is slow to access as a 1-bar move. 

PVE Overview

Castform is notable for changing its typing in the main series to reflect changes in the weather. In Pokemon Go however, its Normal typing variant is basically useless as it can't be Super Effective vs anything, and lacks stats to be viable in the meta. Even as a gym defender, Weather Ball alone doesn't justify its use in the meta compared to superior candidates.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Hex + Weather Ball and Energy Ball or Hurricane

Hex is recommended for PvP due to its superior energy generation, letting Castform spam its charge moves sooner. Tackle gets STAB, but can't be Super Effective vs anything, and is more likely to be resisted. 

Weather Ball is the main and only selling point for Castform, with very low energy costs and good Damage Per Energy (DPE) values backed by STAB, however being a Normal-type move means it can't benefit from a Super Effective multiplier. Energy Ball costs less energy than Hurricane and can hit common Water-types, while the latter offers a niche against Fighting-type counter picks. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 1.5 / 5

The Normal-type variant of Castform is the least useful of the Castform typings, as it can't be Super Effective against anything. With the only niche being its Weather Ball spam, other Pokemon can act as spammy charge move options with greater utility in the meta. 

Ultra League: 0 / 5

Castform lacks stats for anything outside of Great League. 

Master League: 0 / 5

It's normal to expect losses with Castform in Master League, just like how it's normal to not use Castform in Master League.
