PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Peck + Sky Attack is a great moveset that puts Shadow Honchkrow among the game's top Flying-type DPS options. Brave Bird is also usable, but it tends to be a bit weaker.

  • Snarl + Dark Pulse is a solid Dark-type attacking moveset.

  • Psychic has no offensive role for Shadow Honchkrow.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Snarl is slightly superior to Peck, but it is resisted by Machamp.

  • Dark Pulse, Psychic, and Sky Attack are all strong as 2 bar charged moves.

  • Brave Bird is hard to dodge, but Shadow Honchkrow doesn’t have the bulk to use it.

PVE Overview

Shadow Honchkrow really is a boss of a Pokemon. Its combined solid Attack stat and great movesets means it can come out near the top of the Dark and Flying Type metas alike. It has outstanding role compression and high power, making investing in this ravenous Pokemon a solid investment for many players.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Snarl + Sky Attack and Brave Bird or Dark Pulse

Snarl is recommended for its very fast energy generation, which lets it utilize its strong charge moves much sooner. 

Sky Attack is a strong charge move that is efficient on energy and also benefits from STAB. Brave Bird will typically be your secondary move of choice, forgoing coverage for a massively hard-hitting attack that's death for them if unshielded, and death for you if it doesn't land. However, if you are really worried, you can run Dark Pulse instead for a slightly more consistent (but less powerful) option.

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 2 / 5

Honchkrow's already low bulk is brought down even lower by its Shadow state, making it incredibly glassy. This does take away a few matchups that you previously had a chance in just because you faint far too quickly, though you do also pick some up just because your Brave Birds and Sky Attacks hit so hard. Much like normal Honchkrow, though, it's just not that good in Great League.

Ultra League: 3 / 5

Honchkrow is a little better in Ultra League than in Great thanks to the extra HP and better meta positioning. That said, it's still not great. It's still really glassy, and it's still unnecessarily risky.

Master League: 1 / 5

Honchkrow's low max CP prevents it from effectively competing in Master League.
