PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Dragon Tail should be paired with Outrage, as the Dragon set has wider neutral coverage than the Flying set.

  • Air Slash should be paired with Aerial Ace to exploit Flying’s advantage over Bug, Fighting, and Grass types.

  • Ancient Power is not a good investment for Rayquaza.

PVE Overview

Rayquaza, the master of Kyogre and Groudon, has arrived. With its arrival, it assumes the place of best Dragon-type attacker and a top generalist attacker. Your Pseudo-Legendary-Dragon chasing days weren’t in vain, though, as Dragonite, Salamence, and Garchomp don’t fade into obscurity; they're not far behind Rayquaza in offensive prowess, and easier to get en masse than Rayquaza, who demands oodles of Rare Candy.

Fun fact: Rayquaza also becomes the top Flying-type attacker with its double Flying moveset, although there isn’t much to do with that combo in the current meta. It also has the potential to become even stronger when/if Mega Evolution is released with Gen 6.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Dragon Tail+Outrage and Ancient Power

Dragon Tail is definitely a great move in the PVP meta, with 3 DPT (Damage Per Turn) and 3.33 EPT (Energy Per Turn). It pairs perfectly with Outrage (110 Power/60 Energy), allowing for quick charging and high damage with fantastic neutral coverage. Ancient Power (70 Power/45 Energy) rounds out the set, providing fantastic Rock-type counter coverage at a low energy cost, plus the chance to boost Rayquaza's sheer power even farther.

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: - / 5

Rayquaza's CP is too high for the Great League.

Ultra League: 2 / 5

Rayquaza's huge attack stat doesn't do it any favors in any restricted-CP format, but that same huge attack stat combined with a great moveset that has a narrow set of Pokemon able to resist it allows Rayquaza to strong-arm its way into the tier. Here it acts as a cleaner, dropping huge damage from Outrage and hoping for a boost from Ancient Power to patch up its low defenses and make its attack even more obscene. However, it's also very much a glass-cannon, meaning it won't be on the field for very long.

Master League: 4.5 / 5

At this point, Rayquaza's huge attack is finally an asset rather than a hindrance. Here, it can use its raw power and fantastic moveset to come in and break down whatever stands before it. Rayquaza needs a bit of support in the way of team-mates to cover its weaknesses, the ability to switch out when it hits the field, and/or a shield or two to get the job done, but it is definitely worth the investment due to how much of a reward it can reap.
