PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Spark should pair with Wild Charge for some of the best Electric DPS in GO.

  • The Dark-type Snarl + Crunch set is inferior even when super effective.

  • Electric-type Hidden Power doesn't perform as well as Spark, every other type lacks STAB. 

  • Hyper Beam serves no purpose on an offensive Luxray.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Hidden Power is the preferred fast move for its high defensive DPS and surprise typing factor.

  • Snarl is superior to Spark on defense, thanks to better damage and coverage.

  • Crunch is harder to dodge than Wild Charge and has lower energy cost, but the latter is much more powerful.

  • Luxray probably won’t survive long enough to use Hyper Beam.

PVE Overview

Gen 4 introduced 3 great Electric-types to compete with legendary powerhouses such as Raikou and Zapdos: enter Electivire, Magnezone and Luxray. Luxray is the worst of the trio, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s bad.

It does, in fact, strictly outperform Jolteon, the previous best non-legendary Electric attacker, and has DPS on par with Zapdos, although it lacks a bit in durability. So it’s a perfectly viable alternative, if you want to use it for variety or just because it looks cool (which it really does).

PvP Moveset Explanation

Spark or Snarl + Wild Charge and Crunch

Spark is generally recommended due to it benefiting from STAB, while Snarl is a Dark-type move with slightly better energy generation. Hidden Power could be chosen for its initially unpredictable typing, but the lack of energy gains and questionable consistency makes it niche at best. 

Wild Charge benefits from STAB and threatens massive damage, but can be risky to use due to its self-debuff. Crunch offers Dark-type coverage and lacks STAB, but can be used without risk of any self-debuffs. Hyper Beam demands too much energy. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 1.5 / 5

Luxray sports Electric-typing with access to Dark-type coverage, though its fragile bulk is of concern. Access to the powerful Wild Charge means Luxray would ideally prefer to fight when its opponent has no shields, or alternatively it can stack 90 energy and attempt a back-to-back double Wild Charge (and switch afterwards). Neutral matchups tend to be struggles for Luxray due to its bulk, with notable losses against opponents with high damage output, such as those with Dragon Breath or Charm. While its advantage against ubiquitous Water-types is notable, overall it's not the most ideal pick in this league. 

Ultra League: 1.5 / 5

Luxray's fragility remains its biggest problem in Ultra League, where losses against Pokemon with faster movesets, better bulk, or stronger damage output discourages its use. Wins against various Water and Flying Pokemon are to be expected, though not all fights are won cleanly, and notably Luxray can tend to underperform if its opponent uses two shields. 

Master League: 0 / 5

With a max CP of 2888, Luxray falls behind other Pokemon in this league stat-wise, and is generally an inferior choice when compared to other Electric-type Pokemon.
